Aug 28 – Sept 2nd – MotherLode Volleyball Classic

The MotherLode Volleyball Classic is celebrating its 47th year of serving up some of the “best volleyball east of the Pacific Coast Highway at Koch Park in Aspen, CO.” Considered one of America’s iconic grassroots events, “the Lode” attracts players from all over the United States and Canada competing in 21 different divisions. Experience one of the country’s most exciting grassroots volleyball events.

Started as a barbeque 46 years ago

The Annual MotherLode Volleyball Classic is one of the oldest, continuously run outdoor volleyball Tournaments in the Country.  Entering into its 47th year of being an “end-of-the-season” celebration of the sport, the Labor Day Weekend event originally started with a few friends as a barbecue with volleyball – pure and simple.

The sponsor was a popular local Italian restaurant called the Motherlode and the prize was dinner… in time the draw of the town and its people grew the Tourney to epic proportions which drew amateur/recreational and professional outdoor volleyball players from all over the United States and Canada.  They came for the world class bars and restaurants, for the outrageous parties and for the experience of playing volleyball in one of the most beautiful and exciting ski/summer Resorts in North America.

New Management

The ‘Lode has a new management team in place for 2019. Since the event has been a longtime success we don’t plan on changing the formula much, but we do have a bullet list of additions below:

  • Guaranteed cash purse for open divisions
  • Social media live stream play and updates
  • Online bracket system with accurate forecasted play times
  • Special attention given to the grass divisions to enhance the playing and awards experience

The MotherLode has survived many incarnations of “pro beach volleyball” by staying true to the game and fostering a special player experience for each and every athlete. Our Masters division is the most competitive in the world, and our BB grass division in arguably one of the most fun.

How Nature Heals, A Story From #l....As the story from the forest unraveled while we were skinning through it, other stories were revealed and I began to collect the information for a possible future children’s book; the snow crystals sparkling like diamonds in the sun, the white ice crystals of hoarfrost layered upon the snow, and as I absorbed the textures with my eyes, I realized that I also felt the textures from within and it was inexplicably soothing. We have been forced to slow down during this Pandemic, allowing us the opportunity to reflect deeply about our place in the world. For many of us revelations are happening daily, but if we are filled with anxiety, or can’t move beyond our depression, we will not allow the revelations to seep in and we will miss the magic. Meditation helps immensely to create mindfulness about the chatter that leads to the anxiety, as does listening to the journeys of others as they get raw in their pain while enduring heart break and loss. As we repeatedly witness, the world can be a scary place where humanity can be careless, selfish and hateful, but humanity and compassion can also heal us to a place where we are able to see the world as healing rather than a place we want to escape from, but you need to get raw with it. Face it head on, so that you can create space and breathe, which will allow you to slowly shed the anxiety and the depression so that you can strengthen from within and persevere, no matter what is going on around you. Get outside in nature, and nurture it as it nurtures you.Read More at ...
