... to the 1996 Junior Olympics
You are the United States Volleyball Junior Olympic Championships, and
aren't you happy to be here!!! Just the fact that you made it this far
speaks very highly for all of you players, parents, coaches, and
officials. Now it's time to strut your stuff and have a great time!!!!!!!
San Jose is located in Silicon Valley, home of some of the biggest
computer corporations in the world. Since volleyball is a sport of the
1990's it is only natural that we are using some of the top technology
available in this tournament. For example, we will be going around daily
with our "computer camera" looking to take pictures for the Junior
Journal. In addition, we have a World Wide Web page set up to provide you
with updates and other information about this event.
We have almost 300 Girl's 12 & Under, 14 & Under, 16 & Under, and 18 &
Under teams playing on 39 courts. A total of about 3000 players, and
coaches will be competing. While we are talking numbers, there will be
coaches from over 100 universities here to see you. These coaches are in
addition to your family and friends. You are part of the culminating
event for the best, most dedicated players in the country!!!
