In conjunction with the JVA World Challenge was the AVCA Spring Girls’ Talent Showcase. The event was open to uncommitted and unsigned girls’ volleyball players who will graduate from high school in 2010, 2011, 2012 or 2013. With over 150 college coaches in attendance, it proved to be an excellent opportunity for young volleyball players to move towards continuing their careers at the collegiate level.
