“The KSA tournament has become part of our volleyball culture. We have gone every other year for the past 5 years. I feel like a friend, not just a customer….It is a great opportunity to develop leadership and communication within your team.”
Tonya Watson, Head Volleyball Coach – Gunter High School – Gunter, TX
“KSA put on a great tournament and everything was so organized. The competition was exciting and competitive. We loved playing teams from all over the United States. We made friends with coaches and players from other States. This tournament is something my players are still talking about and have great memories.”
As exciting as KSA Events competition can be, KSA Events was founded as a non-profit with the assistance of Coaches and Athletic Directors to promote the educational aspects of athletic participation. Therefore, the following key learning points are promoted through KSA participation:
In total, KSA Events truly offer an opportunity for your players to grow as individuals. So whether you are looking to reward your program for years of hard work or bring excitement to a rebuilding program, KSA competition offers a unique educational opportunity to student-athletes.
Arnie Rosenbaum, Head Volleyball Coach – Francis Lewis High School – Fresh Meadows, NY
“The trip was so organized and enjoyable because the staff helped us every step of the way from planning to getting to all the facilities any time day or night. The competition was very competitive but not overwhelming. Bringing a group of girls that had never been to Disney made this a very enjoyable experience as everything was new to them from ‘It’s a small World’, to the amazing team banquet and fireworks display.”
KSA Events Fall Classic Volleyball Tournaments will include dozens of teams in total, with all teams divided into competitive groupings, so whether you are on the high end of the competitive level or rebuilding, you will be seeded into a pool that is both challenging and competitive to your athletes.
Round one of competition consists of a round-robin pool format. Based on the results from each pool, teams are seeded into a traditional bracket for round two, which will determine overall team placements.
No matter where you finish, teams are guaranteed a minimum of 6 and a maximum of 8 matches over the course of the tournament, providing plenty of court time and allowing all participating teams to plan their remaining schedule appropriately. Each match will consist of best 2 out of 3 set for for the duration of the tournament.
As in all KSA Events, Junior Varsity competition is typically available to all teams interested. This allows your entire program to experience the team bonding aspects of KSA Event participation without concern that your younger players will miss out on the game experience. JV game quantities vary with participating team interest.
The KSA Events Fall Classic Volleyball Tournament is officially sanctioned by the National Federation of State High School Associations (NFHS). Therefore, all participating teams must be members in good standing of their State High School Athletic Association.
KSA Events holds a separate tournament, if necessary, for any private, parochial or other schools not members of a NFHS member association. This allows all schools, no matter their affiliation, to meet appropriate sanctioning requirements.
The KSA Events Fall Classic Volleyball Tournament in Orlando is competed at ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex, the premier amateur athletic facility in the country. An exciting venue, we can utilize up to 12 adjacent courts for a tremendous competition atmosphere.

The primary mission of KSA Events is to promote the educational aspects of athletic participation, including team-work, sportsmanship, work-ethic, and responsibility, to name a few. Furthermore, our goal is to foster an environment where classroom learning is valued and rewarded just as much as athletic achievement on the basketball court, creating a truly balanced education. To accomplish this goal, KSA awards two separate scholarships as described below.
All scholarships are awarded in accordance with the eligibility regulations of the National Federation of State High School Associations (NFHS) and appropriate State Athletic Associations.
A KSA Events Book Scholarship is awarded to every team that participates in a KSA Events Fall Classic Volleyball Tournament, setting an attainable goal for all participating student-athletes. This scholarship (a one-time award of $250) is to defer the cost of secondary education in support of KSA Events mission to promote education.
Each team’s winner of the KSA Events Book Scholarship is selected by the school Principal and/or Athletic Director and/or Coach based on the following criterion:
The award is to be granted to the best all-around student-athlete on the team that participated in the KSA Event. This definition is to include accomplishment and leadership not only on the court, but also in the classroom and community. It is the specific intent of KSA not to simply reward the athlete with the greatest physical ability. It is rather intended to reward the example set by those students who excel on the court and who take the lessons of athletics into the world to benefit themselves and others.
KSA Events is proud to offer our Tag-Along Fan program, which allows the family and friends of participating athletes to travel with the team.
This means that you will contact us directly to sign up, make payments, and receive information, freeing your coach to concentrate on the team and the season, not your travel arrangements.
