The 27th Annual Gulf Coast Classic returns to the Foley Event Center February 15 – 16.
Tournament Director Shawn Weaver said the competition is a highlight of the calendar each year.
“[It has] history [as] one of the first volleyball tournaments held in our region,” Weaver explained.
That history is what will draw an estimated 130 to Foley. Weaver said teams will range in age from 6 to 18 and come from around the Gulf Coast Region including Louisiana, Georgia, Florida, Mississippi, and Alabama.
Foley Sports Tourism Event Operations Manager Angela Sullivan said the Gulf Coast Classic is one of the largest volleyball competitions held in Foley.
“We know we have a lot of teams coming in,” Sullivan said. “But sharing all that Foley has to offer with the plethora of visitors makes the long days worth it.”
The Gulf Coast Classic kicks off at 8 a.m. both February 15 and 16. It is open to the public and there is a $5 charge for admission. For more information on this tournament or any FST event visit our events page.
