Aspen, Colorado | August 28 – September 2, 2024

Join us for the 51st Motherlode Volleyball Classic held this Labor Day Weekend in the most iconic ski town on the planet – ASPEN, Colorado!

The Motherlode is truly an end of summer celebration of the sport of volleyball.  We fill the parks and sand courts during the day and have gatherings and outings downtown each night.  The competition is unrivaled and the friendships made and renewed in Aspen last a lifetime.

Choose from twenty-four divisions over six days.  Pro-Open on the weekend, Masters Divisions during the week and countless grass opportunities over Labor Day weekend.  Play Men’s and Women’s one day, and CoED the other. Give our competitive and exciting triples divisions a go on Friday!  OuttaTown Productions will be back with their unique three-sided nets for Tri-Ball on Friday too.

Top teams compete at Koch Lumber Park and at the Wagner Park Center Court surrounded by music, food, vendors and more!

This year there will be a Masters Gathering Thursday evening at Mi Chola. The Master’s Dinner is Friday night at Mezzaluna where we will induce the first Motherlode Hall of Fame members. On Saturday, Harper + Hudson invites you to a player’s party at their outdoor restaurant.

Be sure to come by Koch Park on Monday, Labor Day to see top Men’s and Women’s teams duke it out in the Pro-Open finals!

See you in ASPEN.
