SPORTSDESK - Pacelli Catholic's Kylie Struble (2022) and Columbus Catholic's Dorci Walker (2022) were both invited to participate in the 2020 American Volleyball Coaches Association (AVCA) "Phenom College Prep Program".
For 2020, the Phenom Program will be held in conjunction with the NCAA DI National Championship and the AVCA Annual Convention in Omaha, Nebraska from December 17th to December 19th. The program is an invitation-only event for uncommitted athletes on the AVCA Phenom Watch List and unsigned Seniors on Under Armour All-America Watch List. Participants and their parents will attend educational sessions, NCAA Division I Volleyball Championship matches, interact with AVCA Collegiate All-Americans, undergo Volleyball Performance Index testing, and participate in the AVCA Talent Showcase. The Talent Showcase during the Phenom Program, is the ONLY showcase that has more than 290+ coaches in attendance.
Having an athlete on the AVCA Phenom List does not automatically secure her spot in the Phenom College Preparatory Program. Invitations to the athletes on the AVCA Phenom List will be emailed in October. At that time, athletes register via the registration link provided in the email invitation. Registration is on a first come, first served basis only to those on the AVCA Phenom List and will close in November or when maximum capacity for the event has been reached.
