"We’ve been given the rare privilege and heavy responsibility of influencing young people on a daily basis, for better or for worse, for the rest of their lives. Which direction will you lead your kids today?' ― Mike Matheny
The JVA is pleased to announce 16 individuals honored with the 2019 JVA Junior Club Service Award. The growth of our sport, along with the consistent success of the JVA would not exist without the dedication and loyalty of the coaches, club directors and administrators of JVA member clubs. We are so thankful to these individuals for their service to junior volleyball for over 20 years.
"The reach these 16 coaches and administrators have had on every athlete that has crossed their path in the last 20 to 30 years is immeasurable" shares JVA Director of Member Development Lisa Wielebnicki.
