Tournament History

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. SBVC was absorbed by Renovators Volleyball Club in the fall of 2016, but Roland maintains his leadership position within the club, as well as that of Tournament Director for the Border Smackdown. This means that the 2017 competition will hold just as much excitement and passion as the years past, and then some!
