Event Information

This Atlanta tradition, back for its 15th year, Southeast Qualifier (SEQ) - formerly known as Beast of the Southeast regularly attracts over 200 college coaches. SEQ is an invitational tournament for 17's and under open divisions and a USAV National Qualifier for the 18-Open, 18-USA, 18-Liberty and 18-American divisions. We've also added club and power divisions this year. If the division you're interested in is full and you would like to be waitlisted, contact briana@southernvolleyball.com

 

 

18’s Specific Information

SEQ will, again, be a National Qualifier for the 18-Open, 18-USA, and 18-American divisions. USAV has also added an 18-Liberty division. Thus, for the 18s:

  • It is not necessary to be invited. If you want to attend, simply register using the link to the left. Registration opens October 1, 2021

  • It will be a three-day National Qualifier (Friday 2/25 to Sunday 2/27)

  • Based on last year's registration numbers, we expect 3 bids to the USAV National Championship tournament will be awarded in the 18 Open division; 3 bids will be awarded in 18 USA; 2 bids in the 18 Liberty and 1 in the 18 American

  • Per USAV guidelines, bids may not be awarded to a team lower than 8th place

  • For more information about National Qualifiers and the National Championship Tournament for 18’s division, please visit the TEAM USA website

  • Order of strength: Open, USA, Liberty, American

 

17’s and Below Information (General)

SEQ is a two-day invitational tournament for 17’s and below open divisions. Invitations have been extended and we expect the field to fill by the end of summer. However, it is possible that a few registered teams may drop, so it is important to be on the wait list if you would like to come but are not currently registered. Contact briana@southernvolleyball.com in this event.

SEQ has traditionally been able to attract most of the best teams from throughout the Southeast–from Louisiana, Memphis, D.C., Raleigh, Miami and every significant market in between.  And owing to its National Qualifier status, we now attract clubs from all over the U.S.

 

Cost per Team

18’s 3-day National Qualifier: $825 per team.

17’s and below 2-Day: $495 per team

 

Recruiting

Historically we have nearly 200 college coaches scouting 15’s and above on GICC’s 28 courts.  We ask that coaches stop by the registration desk, where they will be given a (free) wristband in exchange for their registering with us.  The tournament is University Athlete-friendly.

 

Live Streaming of Event-BallerTV

Yes! We are partnering with Baller TV to provide TV coverage of this event. That means grandma and grandpa (and college coaches!) can watch from the comfort of their living rooms. Baller TV can be accessed through ballertv.com

 

Coaches Meeting

There will be no coaches meeting at this tournament. Rather, we welcome you to review the tournament website: www.southeastqualifier.com.

 

Admissions

$15/day

Ages 3 and under will be admitted for free.

Tickets will be sold in-person, at each venue the weekend of the tournament. CREDIT CARDS ONLY!

 

Wrist Bands

All teams must check in in person to verify their roster and pick up wristbands for their team.  Player and coach wristbands will be given to a Coach or Team Representative at check in.

Player wristbands are silicone and are removable so that they can take them off while playing.  The only individuals given these wristbands are players and they are not for sale to the general public.

Coach wristbands are the same as spectator adult wristbands.  The only way to remove them once they are properly put on is to cut them off.

These wristbands must be worn all three days of the tournament and MUST BE WORN ON THE WRIST.  Wristbands that are put on backpacks, purses, or bags will be rejected by security and may require you to purchase an additional wristband for entry.  Lost wristbands are not replaced for free; a new wristband must be purchased in this situation.

Teams are given wristbands for every player and up to three coaches on every roster.  Staff members who are displayed on multiple rosters will only be issued one wristband for the tournament. Team Representatives and Chaperones are not given wristbands.

 

Venues

Please note that the Southeast Qualifier is a Stay and Play Tournament — both for the U18’s Qualifier as well as 17’s and under. We are using Team Travel Source housing company for all of reservations this year. See “Hotel Accommodations” section below.

15’s and older competing in the Open division will be playing at the Georgia International Convention Center (“GICC”), located near Atlanta’s airport — NOT to be confused with Georgia World Congress Center in downtown Atlanta.  The GICC location will eliminate the need for college coaches or out-of-town teams to rent vans and cars, and will likewise knock an hour or more off each leg of the trip.

13 and 14 Open Divisions will be competing at Suwanee Sports Academy. The venues are almost 50 miles apart so please book hotel rooms closest to your venue.

12 Open will compete at TK Volleyball Center.

We added 16 Power and 17 Power divisions last year to accommodate teams’ desire to play in this event. These divisions will play at Tsunami Volleyball Center.

This year we've added 15 Power, 17 Club, 16 Club, 15 Club, 14 Club, and 13 Club. These divisions will compete at facilities in the North Atlanta suburbs.

Hotel Accommodations

This is a Stay and Play event. We will be using Team Travel Source again this season to handle all hotel reservations. If you have questions, please feel free to reach out to our scheduling coordinator, Denise Corrigan, at denise@southernvolleyball.com.

 

Rosters

Please ensure that your rosters are uploaded onto AES a week prior to the tournament. We will have printed copies for you to review and sign upon check-in.  Make sure your 18’s are safe sport certified, coaches are background checked, etc.

 

Parking

$5/day (no in/out privileges); $5 at Suwanee Sports Academy (on-site), Free at Suwanee Sports Academy (off-site), Free at TK Volleyball Center

 

Artificial Noise

No speakers, radios, air horns, bells or the like will be permitted in the gym.

 

Seating

GICC: There will be no personal chairs permitted inside the facility. Seating will be provided.

 

Departure Flights

All we can tell you this far out — when registrations are still coming in and we don’t even know the size of the field — is the following:

  • The last match will be scheduled to conclude not later than 5 p.m.

  • The venue is connected to the airport.  You can finish a match, take the sky train and be at the check-in gate in 15 minutes.

  • Sometimes a few of the courts run behind — occasionally by as much as an hour

  • THEREFORE…. we think everyone will be safe in scheduling flights that depart 7:30 p.m. or later.

However, use your best judgement as we are not responsible for missed flights.

 

Athletic Trainers

Athletic trainers will be on site from about 7:00 a.m. through the close of competition.  If you need to have your ankles wrapped you will need to bring your own tape.

 

Winners Invited to SEQ 2023

Winners of this tournament receive a Champion’s Exemption-an automatic invitation to the 2023 Southeast Qualifier

 

Check In

Teams competing at GICC are able, but not required, to check in the evening prior to competition commencing. We will man the registration desk from 5 p.m. until 9 p.m. for that purpose.  If checking in the night prior to competition presents a hardship due to travel schedules or other reasons, teams competing in the a.m. wave may check in at 7 a.m. the day of competition, and teams in the p.m. wave may check in any time after noon.

Teams competing at Suwanee Sports Academy and TK are to check in the morning (or afternoon, as the case may be) of competition.

 

Warm-up Volleyballs

In previous years we have furnished warm-up volleyballs to all teams, but this has become a hassle as the tournament has grown, in that not all teams have been respectful about shagging balls or using just the number that we furnished. Accordingly, we are able to furnish warm-up volleyballs only to teams traveling by air.  To secure your team’s volleyballs, please email Denise. Affected coaches will need to trade your driver’s license for a bag of balls, and will be able to retrieve the license only when all of the balls are accounted for and turned in.

 

Food & Beverages

The GICC will not allow food, coolers, etc. to be brought into the building. A wide variety of food and snacks will be available at GICC’s concession stand as well as various food booths.

There will be no food tables at Suwanee Sports Academy. We ask all athletes to pack food and beverages within their backpacks while in the facility.

 

Any other questions?

Please contact the appropriate party with any other questions you may have.
