We'd like to invite all of you to our Phoenix Rising Summer Series tournament. In the spirit of safely reopening Arizona and volleyball, we've developed a June tournament series that makes a lot of sense.

  • No downtime, no team camps, only 3 hours in the gym - promotes a safer experience and we feel, better volleyball
  • Paid referees provided by the AZ Region
  • Seeding will be based on where teams landed mid-March, so no snake seeding which will also provide for better competition starting day 1
  • Unique Point System
    • Win: 2 Points
    • Sweep: 3 Points
    • Win 1 set but lose Match: 1 point
    • Bonus Points:
      • If you beat a higher seed, you get an additional bonus point
      • Week 1 = 1 point, Wk 2 = 2 points, etc.
  • $5 Entry Fee for spectators - half of which will be donated to Phoenix Children's Hospital, other half will go towards COVID-19 sanitation costs for the facilities
  • More details to follow for tie-breakers, final week championship matches.
  • Sanctioned by USA Volleyball
