Partnership with A5 & OTVA forms new pre-national event

Southern Powerhouse clubs unite to bring elite level event to the south

An exciting partnership has emerged between perennial powerhouse clubs, A5 [Atlanta], Orlando/Tampa Volleyball Academy [OTVA] and Triangle to begin a new elite-level pre-national tournament named Southern Exposure. The idea was born from long-standing club-to-club collaborations and the need for an elite level event prior to national championships in mid-June through early July. This event will serve to fill the large void of competition between the national qualifying and national championship events.

"We are excited to work with A5 and OTVA to bring an open-level event to the south," stated Sherry Fadool, Triangle's Executive Director and JVA Executive Board Member. "The JVA Challenge series has been incredibly successful in expanding events in the country and offering high caliber competition."

Southern Exposure will be held May 30-31 in Atlanta at the Georgia International Convention Center. This weekend also begins the recently reworked NCAA Division I recruiting schedule.

The event is sanctioned by the Junior Volleyball Association [JVA] and is part of the popular JVA Challenge Series. Registration for the event is available in AES.
