Last update: May 31, 2020


LAST UPDATE: we continue to constantly monitor the evolution of the new reopening measures. The latest specific guidelines for each sport (volleyball in particular) do not allow us to carry out our Showcase in Frascati on the dates originally scheduled (15-18 June). Should the situation improve in the coming weeks, we will evaluate the opportunity to carry out the event in July or early August. Details will be provided on the dates, locations and schedule. For more information please contact us. 



2020 Dates 

The purpose of this event is to connect prospective volleyball student-athletes with college coaches. Italy has a fantastic volleyball tradition with many up-and-coming athletes looking for programs at the collegiate level.





Showcase @ Frascati (Rome)


The Italian Volleyball Federation decided to cancel all Youth and Junior National Finals (Finals were scheduled starting at the end of May and up until mid-June for all age groups). Following you will find part of the official Italian Federation announcement: "After a careful and in-depth reflection on the emergency situation caused by the CORONAVIRUS infection that is affecting Italy and countries around the world, The Italian Volleyball Federation has decided to cancel the National Youth Finals CRAI and the Kinderiadi Regions Tournament, indoor and beach volleyball. The Federation, as already announced on more than one occasion, intends to continue to act with a sense of responsibility by placing the health of its members first while looking forward to the uncertain future. Should the situation improve and allow the restart of sports activities in June, FIPAV (the Italian Volleyball Federation) hopes to be able to allow the various local Committees to try to complete their competitive paths in the regional and territorial areas".

Hoping that the very extreme measures taken by the Italian government to stop the spread of Covid-19 will start giving results soon we continue planning our Showcase from June 15 to June 18.
