2019 Morgan Classic Tournament & Clinics

In 1895, William G. Morgan invented the game of volleyball at the YMCA in Holyoke, MA. The game received its name during the first public exhibition at what is now Springfield College.

The International Volleyball Hall of Fame honors this pivotal occasion in the sports history with the Morgan Classic. This annual event kicks off with a tournament of the top collegiate talent on Friday night.

Morgan’s legacy of sport development and education continues on Saturday from 9:00am–1:30pm in clinics for players and coaches, led by the four tournament teams.

The Classic weekend activities culminate at the tournament championship match Saturday night, where the winners from the Friday night matches battle it out for the annual Morgan Classic Championship title.

This action-packed weekend commemorates the heritage of our sport, by celebrating its founder and recognizing the talent of our college athletes.
