< back


The JVDA would like to announce the organization's 2008 competition schedule for girl's volleyball events. The 2008 schedule is complete with Zonal tournaments, along with the first annual JVDA National Championship Tournament.

JVDA Zonal tournaments are designed for teams to be able to access local, strong competition within multiple areas throughout the country. The main goal of Zonal Tournaments is to reduce the time of travel, and inherently reduce some of the cost of travel for families. The 2008 Zonal list is headlined by two major events in late March in both Chicago, IL and Wisconsin Dells, WI that will allow for teams to experience an elite level event, along with a superb atmosphere. In addition to these two events, there are currently seven other Zonal Tournaments on the list, with the possibility of more being added.

The 2008 JVDA National Championship Tournament will be hosted in Louisville, KY in the South Wing of the Kentucky Fair and Expo Center, along with possible outside venues. The tournament is set to host up to 736 teams from all over the United States, along with invited International teams in some age-groups. The tournament is projected to be the one of the most competitive Junior tournaments in the United States in 2008. The JVDA National Championship Tournament is scheduled to kick off on June 27, 2008 as a four-day event, ending on June 30, 2008. JDVA member teams in age groups of 12s-18s will compete for multiple titles. The tournament will be complete with National Championship trophies in each age and division, along with all-tournament teams, and special individual awards.

To enter any of the Zonal events, teams should directly contact the Zonal director that is listed. The current Zonal tournament list can be found at http://www.jvda.org/ under events. To enter the JVDA National Championship Tournament, teams should send payment of $700 per team to:

In addition to sending payment for the JVDA National Championship Tournament, teams should contact JVDA Events Director Joe Jablonski for entry instructions and confirmation at vball10015@yahoo.com.

The JVDA is excited to announce such a prestigious end of the year event for the 2008 season. The Association is confident that the new schedule will provide members with cost effective tournament options, along with a competitive end of the season event.
