CVC Players Participate in CHRVA High Performance program

Players work hard over the Summer and off-season to become better players. One great way to do this is to tryout for, and participate in, USAV’s High Performance training program which culminates in a national tournament, typically in late Summer where regions such as CHRVA compete against one another.

Three of our current CVC players made CHRVA High Performance teams for the Summer of 2014 and attended the USAV 2014 Indoor High Performance championships in Tulsa, Oklahoma. From 16U Lightning, Emily Przybyla and Madison Paige; and from 15U Storm, Alexa Welch. Nice job, ladies!
