Southern Volleyball Center Programs
What: For the past seven years, A5 Volleyball Club has hosted the Southern Volleyball Showcase in early December, a recruiting combine that typically attracts 400 – 450 athletes and 100-125 college coaches. The High Academic Showcase is smaller and focused exclusively on matching colleges/universities with high academic standards with prospective student-athletes with the grades and scores necessary to secure admission and thrive in such an environment. Last year in it's second year, the Showcase drew over 100 players as well as 30+ coaches. We have expanded to a capacity of 160 kids for 2017.
The High Academic Showcase will offer 2-waves from 8-12 and 1-5. Players will participate in only one wave. Players will receive a wave assignment request form after March 1, 2017. We have not had issues with honoring wave requests. The first 100 registrants wave requests will be honored no problem.
Who: Uncommitted athletes 9th - 12th grade who meet the event’s academic guidelines. We are looking for GPA’s of 3.5 or higher; ACT’s of 25 or higher and/or SAT scores (or equivalent PSAT’s) of 1100 and up (math & verbal total).
When: Saturday, June 10, 2017 from 8:00 a.m. – noon (Wave I) and 1 p.m. - 5:00 p.m. (Wave II). Players only participate in one wave. We ask that athletes arrive 30 minutes early to sign in, stretch and warm up. College coaches may bring collateral materials and/or admissions representatives, as we will devote one court for use as a “college fair”.
