The Junior Day National Volleyball Showcase will be held at George Mason University in Fairfax, VA, just a few miles outside of Washington, DC. George Mason is an NCAA Division I program. The 72 participants in the Junior Day National event will represent some of the best players across the country who attended a previous Junior Day regional event this summer or received an invite. Players will be given the opportunity to work with our on-court staff of college coaches to get valuable feedback on their skills from the college coaches in attendance. We will also be inviting hundreds of other coaches to the event to observe the two days of action.
Players will be broken down into six teams that will represent the Northeast, Mid-Atlantic, Southeast, Midwest, Great Plains, and West Coast. Each team will consist of 4 OH/RS, 3 Middles, 2 Setters, and 3 Liberos/DS. All players will rotate through games with all receiving an equal amount of playing time to ensure a thorough game evaluation.
WHAT WILL BE INCLUDED AS PART OF THE JUNIOR DAY NATIONALSHOWCASE
TEAM SHOWCASE: Each team will get a session on the court with all of the coaches for evaluation in the different aspects of the game. This will also serve as a warm-up for the teams to get to know each other while allowing players to get personal time with the college coaches in attendance.
INDIVIDUAL TEAM TALK: Each team will get to have a more intimate discussion with a college coach to ask questions and discuss what coaches look for in game play and showcasing environments.
GAMES: Each team will play four matches, two matches on both Saturday and Sunday. All players will receive equal playing time to ensure a proper in-game evaluation.
SEMINAR ON COLLEGE DEVELOPMENT & RECRUITING: On Friday, July 26th after hotel check-in and event registration our staff of coaches will present a discussion with parents and players on development at the college level and the college recruiting process. This will be an open forum between parents, players and the coaches that are involved in these processes on a day-to-day basis.

HOW DOES THIS DIFFER FROM A STANDARD JUNIOR DAY REGIONAL EVENT?
Much like our Junior Day regional events we will put college coaches on the court with high school players who want to learn about today’s game from the actual coaches who are at the college level. However, there are some great additions to our National Event that you won’t see in a regional setting:

* This schedule is designed to give families a general idea of the camp format. If the detailed schedule is available earlier than one week before the event then it will be sent at that time.
^ To the best of our ability, teams with farther travel on Sunday will have the earlier matches in order to help with those travel plans. After their final match, families are free to begin their travel home. The final matches will not go any longer than 3 pm but will likely end earlier.
