The Motherlode is back


Get ready for Labor Day Weekend in Aspen.

It started as a barbecue in 1972.  Now in its 48th year, The Motherlode is one of the oldest outdoor pro/am volleyball tournaments in the country.

Players come from across the country to play volleyball in the most iconic ski town on the planet.  Aspen's parks are filled with volleyball nets as players compete for cash, prizes and a chance to get their name on the courts at Koch Lumber park.  Players renew friendships and explore Aspen's restaurants, retail and nightlife.

LetsGO Volleyball takes over the Motherlode in 2021 with an eye towards the future.  We've upgraded equipment, added new divisions and built in lots of amenities you're sure to enjoy.

EVENT UPDATE


Motherlode is a GO for 2021 with lots of exciting new upgrades.  Choose from 24 sand and grass divisions over six days.

 A new grass schedule includes Triples on Friday, Doubles on Saturday and Sunday.  LetsGO provides Team Tents for every registered team, so leave the heavy lifting to us.   Enjoy all new pro grass courts with ball stops.

There's a fun new CoED OPEN 4's mini-tournament on Saturday afternoon.  100% cash payout for OPEN divisions.

Masters & Seniors divisions return unchanged.  Men's 37+ Masters division will chase $2000 in prize money provided by event sponsor Neiman Funds.

The Lambert Family from Utah  sponsors Thursday's Women's 35+ Masters with a $1000 purse. 

Grass and OPEN finals are Monday.   Quick, easy and contactless registration and check-in provided by Volleyballlife.com.
