AVCA Boys Talent Showcase
The AVCA Boy’s Talent Showcase is a recruiting event designed to provide high school boys the opportunity to showcase their skills in front of the collegiate coaches that are planning to attend the 2017 AVCA Convention in Kansas City, Missouri this December. The event will begin in the evening on Friday, December 15 in the Kansas City Convention Center with a short orientation session and VPI testing to follow. VPI testing is a series of athletic metric tests like vertical jump and acceleration that provide the athlete and coach an idea of the athlete’s overall athleticism. The Talent Showcase will take place on Saturday, December 16 from 2 - 3:30 pm CT. The showcase will be structured with drills and competition to allow athletes to showcase their skills in front of college coaches across the country.
As an added benefit to participating athletes and the college coaches, the AVCA has contracted with the Art of Coaching Volleyball to film the event and share the footage with college coaches. This will allow college coaches not in attendance to still review the athletes.
The cost is $89 per athlete. Match tickets to the NCAA Division I Women's Volleyball Championship (both semifinals and finals) will be available for purchase during registration. Athletes that chose to register will participate in the talent showcase, be put through a round of athletics metric testing called the AVCA Volleyball Performance Index, attend the Women's NCAA Championship matches, and receive some insight into the collegiate recruiting process and tips to improve their visibility.
Online registration is now closed.
