Welcome to the Myrtle Beach Winter Bump!!

Play Schedules will be posted on AES as event nears.

Here is important information regarding our Winter Bump Volleyball Classic Tournament. Please make sure you understand all the information provided as we strive to keep our volleyball season moving forward for 2021.

All teams please check your status in the tournament and confirm the location.

Deadline for team drops is December 15th for a full refund
We have a number of teams on the waitlist. Accepted teams have until December 15th to drop and receive a full refund. Please let us know sooner if possible. Any drop between Dec. 15th and Dec. 29th will get a 50% refund. After Dec. 20th no refund for a team dropping out of the tournament.

Teams on the waitlist
If you are on the waitlist it means we have received your payment but could not accept you into the tournament because the division you entered was full. Your payment has not been deposited. You have a few options: 1) Move to Charleston in a division that has space. We have several spots in Charleston in our select divisions. 2) Remain on the waitlist for your division. 3) Withdraw from the tournament. Given the circumstances spots may open up at any time.
