The Border Smackdown was created as opportunity to bring together boys teams from around the Pacific NW and the western Canadian provinces, to enjoy high level competitive volleyball. During it's first 5 years of existence, the Border Smackdown was hosted by the Spokane Boys Volleyball Club (SBVC) and it's Director, Roland Madany. Roland still runs this event today!

Boys volleyball teams from all over the western United States and Canada meet in the Border Smackdown in May. These teams celebrate the sport they love, competing in 14's, 16's, and 18's divisions.

This means that this year's competition will hold just as much excitement and passion as the years past, and then some!

Location Info
team travel source.jpg

We partner with Team Travel Source to offer a simple solution to booking team hotel accommodations. Similar to a travel booking website, Team Travel site will show you distance, compare rates and MORE!


Why are they different than those OTHER booking sites? Since those other sites are Third Party sites the hotels cannot help you with your reservation directly and you are stuck dealing with those travel sites instead of the local hotel.


This is NOT the case with Team Travel Source, you are able to work with the hotel directly OR one of their helpful customer service staff to manage your reservation.


This event is NOT a Stay and Play event. However,  Gonzaga University graduation is the same weekend and some downtown hotels are already booked. 


Team Travel Source is currently working on securing additional Hotel Blocks for the Border Smackdown booking site and has links for other hotel rates in the area for teams to access since this is a busy weekend in Spokane. Spokane Valley may have more availability for hotels and is about 15-20 mins away from the venue.

We will post the Team Hotel Blocks and notify teams who have registered as soon as we have the hotel information on the housing website linked below. Hotel blocks may go quickly so don't wait to book hotel rooms.



Downtown Spokane Hotels

Our hotel partner, Team Travel Source secures local hotel pricing for the event to help make it easy to make hotel reservations while comparing rates on one booking platform!
