2016 will mark the 7th running of what has become one of the Southern Region’s premier events. Previously a by-invitation-only tournament that was restricted to clubs from the Southern Region, the format has been expanded to include all regions. In as much as the 2015 tournament sold out before in November, we recommend that those desiring to attend this tournament register early.
Icebreaker 2015 attracted a record number of teams, who experienced high level competition. We will be securing additional gym space in 2016 to accommodate the tournament’s explosive growth. Our hope is to offer club and power divisions in every age bracket.
Winners Invited to Beast — Winners of the Power Division of Icebreaker will automatically secure a Champion’s Exemption to the prestigious Beast of the Southeast Tournament of Champions in 2017. The only other way to secure an automatic invitation to Beast is to qualify for USAV Nationals. Yet another reason to attend Icebreaker.
There is a charge for admission of $5/day at all venues. Food tables are allowed at all venues. The tables themselves will be supplied by the venue. Further details will be available in the coaches packet.
As with all of our tournaments, college coaches will be admitted free; simply give your business card to the ticket sales person and they will give you your wristband.
This year we are offering another upgrade to ensure that your participation in the event goes smoothly. We’re partnering with GroupHousing as the official Hospitality Service for the Tournament.
While we have no stay-to-play policy at this tournament, all teams who need accommodations are strongly encouraged to book hotel reservations through GroupHousing. And there’s no reason not to use the service, as GroupHousing guarantees the lowest rate available for all teams. GroupHousing will make this process efficient and friendly for you, while providing exceptional hotel accommodations for all teams. Most hotels will offer a breakfast, kid friendly services, budget-conscious rates, and amenities to enhance your stay. Each hotel is strategically located just minutes from the tournament venues.
Schedule/Waves — Will be posted on advancedeventsystems.com the Monday prior to the tournament.
