Welcome to the official website of the annual Shamrock Festival volleyball tournament, where you will find all of the information you need to ensure that your team and its fans enjoy our tournament. As always, the tournament will be held in the Roanoke Valley for teams in the 14, 16, and 18 & under age divisions with teams in the 13, 15, and 17 & under age divisions all playing in the higher age groups. Teams are seeded based on results so that all teams play teams of increasingly similar strength as the tournament progresses. Teams will play 7-10 matches during the tournament. The 2017 Shamrock Festival saw 244 teams competing from VA, NC, PA, MD, DE, TN, SC, & WV and included teams from 7 different USAV regions. Historically, Shamrock has attracted teams from as far north as NY & NJ and as far south as GA & FL. In addition, we attract dozens of college coaches from all over the East Coast each year.
