Grand Strand Juniors is excited to announce it will be joining the Southeast Alliance Volleyball League (SAVL) for the 2014 Club season.
About the Southeast Alliance Volleyball League (SAVL)
The SAVL’s goal is to enhance the overall club tournament experience for its members.
The league model is being used by many of the top club programs in the country to prepare their athletes to compete at the highest level possible. Teams compete in an easy to understand competitive format against teams of similar skill in what is termed “matched competition.” This matched competition makes every match exciting and games are typically very close. All matches will be played best two out of three starting at 0 so winners are clearly defined. This format will allow teams to play better and more competitive matches at events from the very first whistle.
The SAVL features some of the states premier clubs including Club South – Powered by Upward Stars, Axis Elite, Magnum, Grand Strand Juniors, MVP, Club Savannah, and the Carolina Islanders among others.
Except for the league Championships, tournament facilities will be spread among the leagues members so travel will be minimized for many families when events are close to home.
The SAVL schedule will provide 5 power events that are two days on the first weekend of January, February, March, and May. Teams will then gather for the SAVL Championships June 7-8 at the Myrtle Beach Convention Center.
The Club level schedule will provide 6 (one day) events on the 2nd and 4th weekend of the month starting January 25th. On April 19-20 club level teams make their trip to the SAVL League Championships at the Myrtle Beach Convention Center.
This new league, combined with the other events our GSJ teams will attend, is sure to make the 2013/14 club volleyball season our best yet.
We are GSJ!
