Colorado Crossroads is a USA Volleyball Girls Junior National Qualifier. Teams from all over the country attend this tournament.
It’s HUGE! In 2019 1,500 teams attended. 100 Courts with 200-teams playing at the same time!!
It’s High Energy – Exciting – Organized Chaos – Fun! Fun! Fun! It’s a favorite tournament!

This tournament is 3-days of play. Play on Day 1 and Day 2 is pool play in a wave format, playing multiple games. Each team will play in either the morning wave or afternoon wave, not both. The morning wave play begins at 8am and the afternoon wave play begins at 3pm. Day 3 play time assignments depend on the team’s pool finish the previous day. The last round of matches on Day 3 usually wrap up by 5pm. The schedule will be published the week of the tournament.

Teams can choose to organize outings during off time, but this is not mandated, nor will it be organized by the club. Nothing is mandatory during off time and if you have family plans, this is fine. Just ensure that your teammates are aware of your whereabouts, or that the chaperone on duty knows if you have special circumstances.

COACHES WILL DESIGNATE MEETING TIMES AT THE CONVENTION CENTER, AND COLLECTIVELY,  THE CLUB WILL INSTITUTE CURFEW FOR THE GIRLS AT THE HOTEL. THE TEAM PARENT WILL BE ON-SITE, AS WELL AS YOUR COACH, SO DON’T WORRY IF YOU AREN’T STAYING AT THE SAME PROPERTY.

Lodging:

Crossroads is a Stay to Play tournament. Each team, as part of their registration to the tournament, must book a preset number of Crossroads designated hotel rooms. The blocks are first come, first served and fill up within minutes of registration opening. Our administrative team works hard to be online immediately and grab the most desirable rooms available, quickly and efficiently. Since teams nationwide are doing the same, we don’t always get our first pick. This year, we were lucky to have acted quickly, and secure rooms within walking distance for all of our teams! We use these mandatory bookings for our athletes, coaches and team parent. It is an amazing opportunity for the girls to bond as team during the lodging portion of the tournament too. Staying with their teammates is mandatory.

As parents, you are welcome to stay at the same property, or the location of your choice. Each team will have a designated on-site chaperone, the team parent, staying at the hotel should the girls need anything during the night.

Food:
Team tables are not allowed, therefore, each player is responsible for their own for snacks/meals. The venue has many food vendors. The girls love the smoothies, donuts and breakfast burritos. There are vendors serving lunch too: salads/sandwiches, Asian cuisine, etc. Starbucks is around the corner as well as many other off-site food options. The girls will need to stay at the Convention Center, but parents are welcome to bring them food from other restaurants in the area.

Spectator Seating:
Limited seating around each court is provided. Camp chairs are prohibited. The courtesy rule applies: You should only occupy a seat along the court if your team is playing. Otherwise, vacate the seat.

Vendors:
Vendors are set up at the entrance of the gym: face painting, volleyball accessories, t-shirts, volleyball equipment, and college recruiters. The players can test their vertical jump height, etc. too. The company comes year after year where they can compare their measurements from year to year. The information is sent to a college recruitment company.

Must See:
You will see some incredible games. Not only will our athletes play some very talented/skilled teams, but there are courts designated to teams that are extremely skilled. It’s fun to watch in-between our games. Another court to check out is the Sitting Court. Sitting volleyball (aka Paralympic volleyball) is for athletes with a disability. Disabilities eligible to compete in sitting volleyball include: amputations, spinal cord injuries, cerebral palsy, brain injuries, etc. It’s inspiring to see the talent/skill of these athletes.

In-Between Games:
Outside the gym you’ll find places to sit. Explore down hallways, lower floors, etc. Some places are quieter than others. Again, you cannot bring your own chair. Wear comfortable shoes, you’ll be walking a lot.
