Player responsibilities include reading Platinum Sports SA Tourney Rules which include COVID-19 restrictions.  WARNING!  While safeguards are being taken to reduce the risk of infection, the RISK IS STILL THERE.  Risk of injury/death from flying objects, equipment, or players incidental to the sport of volleyball may occur at this event.  Attend at your own risk (includes players and spectators) as we have no liability. Please pay close attention to your surroundings and be on alert at all times, especially during active play.

These premises are not monitored to ensure the security of personal property of participants or attendees at our events. You are responsible for the security of your own belongings.  The event organizers nor facility shall have no liability for any theft or damages.

When:
We usually host a tourney once a month on a Saturday or Sunday, view our Tournament Dates for a listing of dates and times. Registration will remain open until the posted deadline OR UNTIL WE FILL UP, whichever is sooner. Once we close registration, you may email us at play@platinumsportssa.com or text us @ 210-722-0770 and we can add your team to the waitlist. We may have more openings become available after closing registration. 
Format: We will impose penalties (10 points docked the next set or expulsion) for failing to follow our Platinum Sports SA COVID rules or any rules we have added here. FACE COVERINGS ARE REQUIRED TO BE WORN WHEN INSIDE THE BUILDING (courtside, lobby, cafe, bathrooms, etc) AT ALL TIMES INCLUDING WHEN PLAYING except when eating in the cafe/lobby.  
Teams are placed/select divisions based on skill level (Tourney Rules). Guaranteed a minimum of 8 sets to play. Teams take turns reffing.  
Schedules are NOT posted ahead of time. “Blank” schedules will be located on the score table by your team’s assigned court the day of the tourney, YOU (captain or teammate) will write in your team name on the schedule (you basically get to pick the schedule/match times for your team, first come-first serve). ALWAYS follow the instructions on the schedule for sets/matches to play in your division/court.
Cost:
Cost is $100 PER TEAM for EACH tourney and must be paid by the deadline posted on our website at Tournaments Teams & Schedule. No cost for registering as a FREE AGENT, you pay only if you are picked up by a team and pay that captain directly. All payments must be made electronically, we do not take payments in person. Check our website for ways to pay at MAKE A PAYMENT. Those teams NOT paying in full by the deadline are automatically dropped and any monies refunded. Teams who have paid in full and wish to withdraw can request a full refund up until the payment deadline. After the deadline only credit into the captain’s League Apps account will be given for any team withdrawals. NO REFUNDS NOR CREDIT for teams who are penalized or ejected due to not following our COVID rules. 
Players:
Due to COVID precautions we will NOT be allowing teams to draw a player from other teams if your team happens to be short a player so be prepared to play short if you find you do not have 6 players that day or for a particular match/set. While we encourage Free Agents looking for a team to show up ready to play, there is no guarantee a player will be available. Teams looking for players can view the Free Agent list of players looking for teams in League Apps. Log into your League Apps account, click on Tournaments, then towards the right click on FREE AGENTS. Free agents, players who are looking for a team to play with, should review the procedures on our website at FREE AGENTS
Blank paper roster sheets will be located on the scoretables and each team is required to fill out a roster sheet within 2 hours after the tourney start time (leave the roster on the scoretable). Captains can also print out the Tourney Waiver/Roster Blank Form (8 Players) ahead of time, fill it out, and leave it on the scoretable.  Teams are allowed a maximum of EIGHT players on the team roster. 
Where:
Location of ALL our indoor tourneys is at Mission Concepcion Sports Park (MCSP), 714 E. Theo, San Antonio, TX. We rent the courts from MCSP and they have rules we must all follow such as NO outside food/drinks/chairs. We are not allowing food to be eaten inside the main gym courtside, instead should be eaten in the cafe/lobby or outside. 
The facility also charges $5 cash per vehicle parked in their lot. There is limited free parking available across the MCSP gated entrance at the nearby community park. We will gladly refund the $5 parking fee to our wiser players aged 60 and over, simply show the pass to any of the Directors for a refund.
What do I win:
Medals will be awarded to players of teams winning 1st place in their division (division must have at least 3 teams).
