23 Private School Volleyballers Invited to AVCA Phenom College Prep Program

Twenty-three (23) private and parochial high school volleyballers have been invited by the American Volleyball Coaches Association (AVCA) as athletes on the AVCA Phenom List to register for the Phenom College Preparatory Program to be held in conjunction with the AVCA Annual Convention in Minneapolis, Minnesota December 13-16 2018.

Over the past six years, 80% of athletes who participate in the Phenom Program play volleyball in college.

It is an invitation-only event for unsigned Seniors on Under Armour All-America Watch List and uncommitted athletes on the AVCA Phenom Watch List.

Participants and their parents will attend educational sessions, the Under Armour High School All-America Volleyball Match & Skills Competition, NCAA Division I Volleyball Championship matches, interact with AVCA Collegiate All-Americans, undergo Volleyball Performance Index testing, and participate in the AVCA Talent Showcase. The Talent Showcase during the Phenom Program, is the ONLY showcase that has more than 150 coaches in attendance.

Having an athlete on the AVCA Phenom List does not automatically secure her spot in the Phenom College Preparatory Program.

Invitations to the athletes on the AVCA Phenom List will be emailed in October.

At that time, athletes will need to register via the registration link provided in the email invitation.

Registration will be on a first come, first served basis only to those on the AVCA Phenom List and will close in November or when maximum capacity for the event has been reached.

The requirements for having an athlete on the AVCA Phenom List are that the student-athlete must be an underclassmen who has been recognized in some form for her outstanding volleyball abilities and the student-athlete’s high school head coach must be a member in good standing of the AVCA.
