The 2018 Molten Can-Am Volleyball Tournament, hosted by Pace Bootlegger, will return to Rochester, N.Y., January 13-14, 2018. Molten Can-Am is one of the largest boys’ volleyball tournaments on the East Coast, hosting approximately 1,500 athletes.
Attracting top youth talent, the Molten Can-Am is one of nine bid tournaments held nationally to qualify for entry to the USA Volleyball Boys’ Junior Nationals. The tournament originally began in 1987, quickly becoming one of the largest tournaments of its kind. In 2005, USA Volleyball approached the tournament organizers to make it a national qualifier, and it has been so ever since.
During the tournament, games will take place at a number of locations throughout the Greater Rochester area beginning on Saturday, January 13. Tournament locations include East High School, Gates-Chili High School, Main St. Armory, The College at Brockport, Nazareth College, St. John Fisher College, Tri-County Sports Complex, Pittsford High School, Victor High School, Pinnacle Athletic Complex, and Mcquaid Jesuit High School.
The Molten Can-Am is one of the largest boys’ volleyball tournaments on the east coast, and will attract athletes from Illinois, Texas, Pennsylvania, Maryland, Virginia, New England and Canada to Rochester to compete. Organizers expect the event to generate more than 1,300 hotel room nights in Monroe County throughout the duration of the tournament.
The 2018 Molten Can-Am Volleyball Tournament has taken place in Rochester for the past three consecutive years. Visit Rochester and the Monroe County Sports Commission look forward to welcoming players, their families and fans to Greater Rochester and Monroe County for the 2018 tournament.
