Washington Convention Center for the Capitol Hill Volleyball Classic. Once purchased, parking passes are emailed instantly and guarantee you access to your selected location.

Team Check-In

* Late Team Check In: Saturday, February 13 7:30-10:00am Convention Center- East/West Salon.

Player & Staff Wristbands: At Team Check In, the Team Representative will be issued wristbands for each player on the roster up to 15 and each staff member up to 3 (can be Coaches, Chaperones, Team Representatives, Managers, etc. or any combination of staff positions but no more than 3). These wristbands are included as part of the Team Registration fee – there is no extra charge for them.

The person checking in the team must pick up all wristbands for that roster.

Coaches must issue wristbands to the players before they can enter the area where the volleyball courts are. Players who do not have a wristband will not be allowed into the playing facility..


Here Are Maps Of The Courts

Hall D and E: Courts #74-112

Admission Ticket Info

All family, friends, and fans of all teams, players, and coaches must register as guests....i.e. pay a fee to see your child play.

Registered guests will receive either a One Day Registration for $15 per day or a Weekend Guest Registration wristband for $40 ($30 if registered online).

A one-day Registration is valid only for the day on which it is picked up.
Click here for complete CHC Guest Registration information.


Players Wristbands: A coach or team rep will be issued wristbands for each player on the roster. A player will have to make plans with her coach to receive their wristband if she will be entering the facility prior to the coach’s arrival. Players will not be issued a replacement band for lost or forgotten bands.


Coolers, Food And Chairs

NO COOLERS of any kind, of any size, or for any reason are permitted in the Washington Convention Center. Coolers left inside the building will be removed to the outside of the building. Coolers left outside the building are the sole responsibility of the owner, but may be confiscated if security deems them a hazard. Neither Capitol Hill Classic, Metro American VBC nor the facility will assume any responsibility for coolers or providing a place for them.

No outside food can be brought into the Convention Center building, not even into the lobby. This is a Convention Center rule that we must enforce as a condition of our contract; it is not our rule. We understand people don't like this and neither do we. But we are bound by the terms of the contract and cannot negotiate this away. We apologize for any inconvenience it causes.

In this post-9/11 world, major facilities reserve the right to restrict any items being brought into the building that they consider to be a problem; this includes personal seating and other large containers. We do provide seating for spectators at each court. Teams will be penalized if supporters hassle the security staff about these rules. Please abide by the rules and let the tournament be enjoyable for everyone.



The Side-Out Foundation is looking for teams at the Capitol Hill Classic to participate in the 2015 Assist Project. The project’s goal is to raise $300,000 dollars for cutting edge breast cancer research and distribute 30,000 creative hand made cards to cancer patients in hospitals and cancer centers nationwide. Yes, the 2nd day is still Dig Pink day so wear something pink!

Teams are already creating cards & raising funds, and to reach our goals we need your club too! The deadline to submit cards and funds is March 31 in order to receive FREE Assist Club shirts for your team.

If you are interested in joining this special project and spreading smiles to those in your community who need it the most, visit
We would love to have your support!
