June 24-29, Phoenix, AZ -- Volleyball Festival Nat'l Championships
NW Juniors Elite sent 6 teams to Phoenix for the Volleyball Festival Championships. It was a great first experience for a lot of our National teams Members and proved rewarding for those that have attended as well. Logistically, sending 6 teams to Phoenix is a challenge, but with the cooperative spirit of the players, coaches and parents as well as the great hotel accommodations -- all teams had a fantastic experience. Most teams finished the 4-day tournament with a winning record; two teams won their divisions and took home some hardware; and the 16 UA Black team capped a fantastic season with a 7th place finish in the 16's division.
Annually, our U14 and older National teams participate in a post-season tournament. Ideally, we would like out teams to qualify for USAV Nationals, and we had teams come close this season, but Phoenix has proven to be a great "consolation" prize for our National Teams. Not only do we get great weather and great camaraderie to end our season, but we get great competition from a field filled primarily with teams from Arizona, Southern California, and other parts of the country. We are proud of our teams and excited for another great season next year.
