Batesville Welcomes Delta Region Volleyball High Performance Camp

The Batesville Community Center and Aquatics Park welcomed volleyball players, coaches, and family members from across Arkansas, Mississippi and Tennessee this past weekend for the Delta Region Volleyball High-Performance Camp.

The Delta Region High-Performance Program is designed for players who have been identified as having the potential to travel up the USA Volleyball Athlete Pipeline as their careers progress and is a regional branch of USA Volleyball’s National HP Program.

The Delta Region host an Invitational High Performance (HP) Camp each May for the top athletes in the region, ages 12-16. The camp is a 2-day training camp that includes sustained athlete training that is consistent with USAV National criteria and standards.

Throughout the season, athletes are given an opportunity to try-out for one of the 72 spots offered for the invitational camp.

When asked about their experience hosting this event in Batesville for the first time, Joanie Williams of Delta Region Volleyball stated “ I think you would have enjoyed hearing our coaches, parents, and players speak of the Batesville Community Center. They were all extremely impressed with the facility! I have a feeling that several Mayors will be hearing about the need for a similar facility in their cities.”

The Batesville Advertising and Promotions Commission awarded Delta Region Volleyball $1,460.00 for hosting the event as part of the event grant program, which encourages organizations to host events in the area to generate hotel stays.
