Rumble Southern Exposure 2021

Please Read our COVID Protocol!

As we look forward to the 2021 spring club volleyball season, we have all re-evaluated what it means to stay safe while also maintaining as much sense of normalcy as possible. A very tough task as we all know. In the volleyball tournament world, that means implementing covid protocols and thinking through how best to serve the coaches, athletes and parents.

To provide a robust end of season tournament pre-Nationals, Rally Volleyball and A5 are coordinating efforts for the Rumble Southern Exposure. This will provide great competition spread across two elite venues.
