The fifth 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.

Registration: 2019 High Academic Showcase
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 8, 2019 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”.

There is sufficient parking on site for this event. If the front lot is full, there is room — along with a second entrance — to the rear of the building. Please do NOT park in the lot across the street serving AT&T, and do NOT park on the grass, in a reserved spot, or in a handicap spot (unless you display the proper credential), as violators will be towed.
