AVCA Girls’ Talent Showcase at JVDA Championships Sold Out!
LEXINGTON, Ky. - The Junior Volleyball Directors Association (JVDA) Championships continues to grow, as today the JVDA and American Volleyball Coaches Association (AVCA) announced that the AVCA Girls' Talent Showcase at the JVDA Championships is now at capacity. The organizations are projecting that 360 potential collegiate athletes will be attending at the event at the Ohio Valley Volleyball Center in Louisville, Ky.
(NOTE: Additional registrations will be considered on-site, should cancellations occur.)
"We are looking forward to the opportunity to work with and host a quality showcase event for prospective college players," said Kathy DeBoer, AVCA Executive Director. "We have had a huge rush of athletes sign up this past couple of weeks and we are now taking standby reservations in case of cancellations."
"A showcase is a great venue for college coaches to identify potential recruits prior to a quality event like the JVDA Championships," said Marc Swindle of University Athlete, a partner of the Showcase and Championships. "From the early college sign-ups and the higher number of teams for this year's event, it looks like we will certainly exceed the 200-plus coaches that attended the JVDA Championships last year."
In addition to being directly observed by college coaches, athletes at the AVCA Girls' Talent Showcase will have the opportunity to further their exposure by creating a profile with MaxxAthlete, which will be included in MaxxAthlete's college coaches recruiting network (www.MaxxInsight.com). These profiles also allow each player to be part of the largest social network dedicated solely to youth sports (www.JoxxStop.com). These services are being provided to participating players, parents and club coaches of the Championships free of charge. MaxxAthlete, the leading digital media company dedicated to youth sports, is providing their digital media services for the entire Championships event.
The 2009 JVDA National Championships, which last week exceeded 500 team entries, surpassing 2008's inaugural-year numbers, will be played June 26-30 in Louisville at the Kentucky Exposition Center.
