What is The MotherLode? Well. Yes. It’s a volleyball Tournament. But, it’s so much more. It’s a celebration of the sport of beach volleyball. It’s a party. It’s a volleyball Tournament that allows amateur players the opportunity to test themselves against like players from all over the Country and Canada. It’s an Open Tourney that helps prove up-and-coming pro beach players. It’s a Tourney that allows older players the opportunity to, still, continue competing (MotherLode Masters DiG Magazine National Championships). It’s an Event where players can meet new players from all over the Country. It’s an Open Tourney for all levels of ability. Its Open divisions are a combination of “young bucks” and experienced players and a Tourney for those who never went AVP; but, should have.
It’s an Event where marriages are made and new friends are made. It’s more than a volleyball tournament – it’s more like a “volleyball vacation” in one of America’s best summer/winter resorts. It’s a reunion for many players. It’s a tournament that allows its players the opportunity to experience the surroundings: hiking, biking, rafting, climbing, fishing, swimming, golfing, and playing tennis – all within, during, and around playing in the Tournament. It allows players the chance to eat lunch or to sit on the veranda of the many bars and restaurants that sit right inside the City Limits. Or, just to take a little time to hang out with their friends at their lodge or hotel in the late afternoon or early evening. It’s nightlife that lives up to the hype of Aspen.
And, yes, it’s a volleyball Tournament. It’s six days of competition. It’s more like a “volleyball festival”. In short…
It’s more than just a volleyball Tournament! It’s more than just a sport!
It’s The MotherLode! Experience It!
