Call: 518-727-3357

Welcome players, coaches, parents and friends to the 2017 Albany Capitals Classic which will be played on six courts located on the Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute campus in Troy, New York. Now in its 24th consecutive year of operation, the Classic prides itself on offering quality competition to all participants. This year should be no exception.

In constructing this year's schedule, great care has been taken to foster competitive games. All reasonable advance scheduling requests have also been honored and logistical concerns like travel distance and multiple teams coached by the same coach have been accomodated as much as possible.

Because it is extremely difficult if not impossible to alter a schedule once it has been finalized, no scheduling requests wil be accepted now that the tournament schedule has been published.

We look forward to seeing you at the 2017 Albany Capitals Classic.
