AVCA Phenom College Preparatory Program (Wed Dec 14 -  Sun Dec 18, 2016)
Several SC Midlands athletes will attend this invitation-only event.  This college prep program is held in conjunction with the AVCA Convention and the NCAA Division I Women’s National Championship. It features a talent showcase attended each year by over 100 college coaches.  The site is Columbus, Ohio. Players will undergo physical testing that will result in a Volleyball Performance Index score, a validated measure of their potential. Participants will also take a learning-style assessment which will produce an Athlete Behavioral Profile. Attending the NCAA DI Championship and the Under Armour All-America High School Volleyball Match provides inspiration and engaging in discussions with current college All-Americans.  The goal is to give Phenoms an idea of what to expect and what to look for in making their college choices. The weekend culminates with the AVCA Talent Showcase where college coaches spend time evaluating Phenoms in volleyball-specific drills.
