This is a great opportunity to test your skills before the outdoor season starts and get feedback from experience coaches on what parts of your game could use improvement.
It is my great pleasure to announce the 2014 CEVA Regional
Championships will be held at the Oregon Convention Center in Portland.
With more than 45 courts in one location, all ages and
divisions will participate on the same weekend, April 26th and 27th
We are working with Travel Portlandand believe the move to
the Oregon Convention Center will enhance the CEVA Regionals experience for players,
coaches, families and spectators. Over
the next few weeks and months, we will be making more announcements regarding
hotel accommodations, entertainment opportunities and ways Clubs can benefit
from the move.
I’d like to thank the CEVA Junior Girls Committee and the
CEVA Board of Directors for their help in making this possible.
Thank you for the support and see you next year in Portland!
Due to facility availability, not every team will be in the Albany/Corvallis area. Some 14s and 16s teams will be
in Salem. For 16s, the bottom 16 teams will be in Salem. For 14s, the Comet and Constellation Divisions will be in Salem. Exactly what teams are affected will not be determined until after the conclusion of April Power League, the tallying of points and the final seeding of Regionals.

As I thought about sports to involve my young son in, I wanted to find a sport that would increase his strength and athletic prowess, would not injure him, and would provide him with opportunities to play no matter where he was. A sport that would serve as a social outlet for him - a way to meet people and a sport he would enjoy playing for the rest of his life.
You may be thinking: Golf! And golf is one great option. But I was looking for something a little more cardiovascular. That’s when I thought of volleyball - a sport that, believe it or not, is vastly more popular than golf. If you have a son, you might be interested in the results of my research...
The Top 5 Reasons Your Son should be playing Volleyball Men’s Volleyball is a Power Sport: Check out these videos:
The Russian Olympic team has a 7” tall hitter who jump serves! It’s definitely a power game when he’s on the court.
Ever heard of NBA star Kevin Love of the Minnesota Timberwolves? Guess where he was during the NBA lockout? Playing Volleyball on the Pro Beach TourYes, Kevin can hit the ball pretty hard too.I think your son would be impressed.

responsible for the theft of any and all personal items. Although we sympathize
with anyone who may have encountered a situation regarding theft, it is not our
responsibility to keep track of all personal items brought along to
