Registration for the 2014 Southern Volleyball Showcase is Now Live.
One of the top recruiting combines in the country, the Southern Volleyball Showcase provides a vehicle for athletes playing 16′s and above in club to demonstrate their volleyball skills to some 100 college coaches. It will be held on Saturday, December 6th, 2014 at Suwanee Sports Academy.
To register, click on this link and follow the prompts. We have capacity for about 400 athletes, we had record numbers of girls apply in 2013 and unfortunately we were not able to accommodate those who waited until the last minute to register, so our strong recommendation is don’t procrastinate!
As in the past, there will be two waves – one from 9:00 a.m. until noon and the other from 1:00 – 4:00 p.m.. After you have registered, you will receive an email asking your preference as to wave assignments, and we will endeavor to honor these preferences, but must do so on a first-come basis. If there is any doubt about which wave you are to attend, or if you need to state your preference, you may do so by emailing the event’s registrar at email@example.com.
A recruiting seminar will be included as well. There will be one presentation in the morning and another in the afternoon, enabling parents and players to attend together if they wish. In previous years we have been told that the seminar itself was worth the price of admission.
It is not unusual for us to have registrations for athletes from 20 states, including Canada, Puerto Rico, California, Washington and New York, reinforcing the notion that it’s not necessary to LIVE in the Southeast to attend the Showcase; rather, if you want to ATTEND COLLEGE in this region of the country, the Showcase may be your best, most efficient way to be noticed by coaches from your target geographic.
For us, the most rewarding aspect of the Showcase is that each year we receive a dozen or so “thank you” emails from participants who committed to a program to which they were first exposed at our event. We’ve included a few of their comments in the “testimonials” tab.
Though we typically don’t know in advance which colleges will be represented, a listing of college coaches who have attended in the past is posted on the “colleges represented” tab. If a recruit attending the Showcase wants to be seen by a particular college coach, the best thing they can do to make that happen is to contact that coach, let them know they will be at the Showcase, and ask them to come watch.
We are in the process of negotiating favorable hotel rates close to the venue. Housing information will be posted by mid-September.
The cost is $85.
The Showcase will grant written refund requests through Friday, November 15, 2014. Such refunds will be issued via a credit back to the credit card, less a $20 processing fee. Beginning November 16, the Showcase will issue refunds only when the registered player has a medical issue that prohibits participation in the Showcase event. Southern Volleyball Showcase, at its sole discretion, may request medical documentation before processing a medical refund request. In all instances refunds will be issued only if we are able to fill the athlete’s slot. Requests must be made prior the Showcase date. Wait-listed registrants who aren’t able to get in will have their registration fee refunded in its entirety.
