USA Volleyball invited 39 athletes to participate in the Girls' Youth Holiday Training Program that was held Dec. 26-30 in Colorado Springs.

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (Dec. 30, 2018) – The 2018 USA Volleyball Girls Youth Holiday Training Program held its six-day training session Dec. 26-30 at the U.S. Olympic Training Center in Colorado Springs, Colo.

The 39 athletes were invited to the program based on summer evaluations through the USA Volleyball High Performance program. The athletes are in the under-18 age group.

This age group has qualified for the 2019 FIVB Girls’ Youth World Championship that will take place this summer in Cairo, Egypt. All athletes, including those participating in the Holiday Training Program, must take part in a High Performance tryout this winter and spring to be eligible for the World Championship roster.

Tryouts are held across the country, most as part of an existing event such as USA Volleyball Junior National Championship Qualification Tournaments. For the schedule and to register, click here.
