AAU Announces 2015 European Global Challenge

AAU Announces 2015 European Global Challenge

For the third consecutive year, AAU Volleyball would like to extend the opportunity to participate in the European Global Challenge to its members. This year, a 17U team will be formed to compete against teams from all over the world!  Last year’s competition included USA HP teams from various regions, the USA Youth National Team, and Hungarian, Croatian, Czech Republic, and Slovenian Junior National Teams, to name a few!

The 2015 trip which lasts from July 8th – July 18th, will begin in Budapest, Hungary where the team will spend its pre-tournament training time practicing against Hungarian Junior teams.  They will then journey to Pula, Croatia for the Opening Ceremonies on July 12th.  The competition will take place from July 13th – 16th.  Afterwards, the team will spend a day in Venice enjoying delicious food and the beautiful sights of Italy!

Once again, 2-time Olympic setter, Debbie Green, will be joining the tour in a mentor role for both players and coaches.  Debbie is a member of the Volleyball Hall of Fame and the AVCA Coaching Hall of Fame, among many other things!  

This is a once in a lifetime opportunity that you do not want to miss!  For information on how to apply, CLICK HERE.
