Are you ready for some great volleyball FUN? Then enter your team in the Spikin' It Grass Volleyball Tournament. St. Louis’ LARGEST outdoor grass volleyball tournament - Spikin' It -  promises players an exciting tournament with divisions for all playing abilities.  Enjoy a great day of hanging out in the park and playing volleyball with hundreds of fellow volleyball enthusiasts!


All Spikin' It players who enter & pay by July 6th will receive a tournament shirt.  First and second place teams in each division win prizes! CASH PRIZES for the Open division!  
Participants that register after the early registration period are not guaranteed a tournament shirt (SO REGISTER & PAY EARLY)!!!


Spikin' It competition consists of pool play to determine which teams will qualify for divisional playoffs. Teams play between 3 and 8 games in pool play and a minimum of 2 teams from each pool advance to the playoffs - but we will try to take as many as possible.  In coed, at least half of the players on the court must be female at all times.

If a division does not have enough teams to host, teams will be contacted with potential alternatives.  This may include combining divisions.  If there are still not enough teams for a given division, the teams affected will be refunded.


Male, Female, Coed and Junior Divisions
2-Player,  3 Player,  4-Player & 6-Player teams Depending on Division. 


We will be returning to the Mueller Soccer Fields for SPIKIN’ IT this summer! Mueller Fields  are located just off the New Town exit  and I-370 in St. Charles at 3801 Mueller Rd, St. Charles, MO 63301.

Event Entry - Online Registration

This event's registration will be managed online.  Payment may be made online.  Offline payment is available as well.  Payment is required to secure your team's spot.  Acceptance after the deadline is limited and dependent on availability. 

The Tournament  Director reserves the right to restrict team placement in specific divisions based upon the effort to produce an enjoyable, balanced competitive atmosphere for each team.

Level Of Play Definitions:

Open: The most competitive teams with experienced and highly skilled players; one bracket, cash prizes.
Club: Competitive teams; high / low brackets for divisions with 8 or more teams.
Intermediate:  Geared towards players/teams who are seeking a little bit more competition.  Participants that play at this level have a reasonable knowledge of the rules.  Most players on the team should be able to pass and set with relative accuracy and should be prepared for hitting and blocking.
Recreation:  For new players or just-for-fun teams (teams with limited skills and abilities - no strong hitters or leapers). Jump* serves are prohibited (with downward trajectory*; jump float serves are legal).

Tournament Morning - Team Check-In

Team Check-in will be Saturday & Sunday mornings, between 7:00-7:30am - at Championship Tent.  Only after all the teams of a division are checked in, will schedules be released (to accommodate any late additions, or last minute drops) and play will begin.  Check-in will involve:

  1. Payment of any entry fees (if offline payment selected)
  2. Filling out a Liability Waiver if NOT a Current Gateway Region Member

Teams will NOT be considered “checked-in” until entry fee is paid, AND non-members on your team have filled out the Liability Waiver.  Again, pool play schedules will not be released until 7:30am, and all teams of a division are checked in.  If there are any late additions or last minute drops, please allow time to re-do and re-seed the pools.


HEAT – Wear lightweight loose clothing.  Bring: LOTS of your own water.  Sunscreen.  Umbrella for shade while reffing.  Take breaks as needed. 

BALLS – Bring your own Ball!  A very limited number of balls will be available for rent with a deposit of a driver’s license or credit card.

TENTS – Tents may be setup around the mapped fields (not within the fields among the courts).  Tents may not be setup in a position that obscures event staff from observing all the fields from Concession Stand 2.

CONCESSIONS available.  Coolers are typically not allowed, but we have negotiated with STC parks who are willing to let teams bring in coolers as long as they remain hidden in their tent.

PARKING – Please refer to the Muller Park Map.  Our event will utilize courts 11, 14, 15 and 12 in that order of priority.  Parking is the large lot adjacent to courts 14 and 11.  There is no parking next to Concession Stand 2 except for STC Park/Event Staff, Healthcare/Maintenance Staff and Emergency vehicles.
