The fourth annual High Academic Volleyball Showcase was another big success. 130 brainiac athletes were on hand to display their volleyball skills to 25 college coaches ranging from big Division I programs like Florida State (they like smart athletes too!), to smaller, academic-focused institutions like Emory and Sewanne (University of the South). A complete listing of coaches who have scouted our High Academic Showcase is included here.

For the past eleven years, A5 Volleyball Club has hosted the Southern Volleyball Showcase in early December, a recruiting combine that typically attracts 500 athletes and 150 college coaches. The High Academic Showcase is smaller and focused exclusively on matching colleges/universities with high academic standards with prospective student-athletes who have the grades and test scores necessary to secure admission and thrive in such an environment.
Rising freshmen and older — 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). These are guidelines rather than absolute requirements. Please email us if you are interested but may not apply strictly by the academic guidelines.
Saturday, June 9, 2018 from 8:00 a.m. – noon (Wave I) and 12:00 pm – 4:00 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 some space for use as a “college fair”.
