AVCA College Prep Combine

he AVCA College Prep Combine is a two-hour low-impact, high-value data-gathering session that assesses a player’s physical potential and behavioral temperament, both critical factors in informing the college-bound volleyball player about her choices.  This investment pays lasting dividends because the results are compiled in a searchable database where participants, their parents and college coaches can look for good matches.
