In just over a week, the 42nd AAU Girls' Junior National Volleyball Championships will be here! This event is the largest volleyball event in the world and we can’t wait to see all 2,200+ teams at the Orange County Convention Center and the ESPN Wide World of Sports complex! Because of its size, this year the event will span over 11 days instead of last year’s eight days. A total of 175 courts will be placed in the two venues to accommodate the nearly 30,000 participants.

For the second consecutive year, the AAU Volleyball National Championships will feature an International Division, with teams traveling from Brazil, Croatia, Dominican Republic, Germany, Israel, Puerto Rico and Slovenia. This division will compete against each other for the International division title. Once the champion is crowned for this division, they will face the champion of the 18 Open Division. The International 2nd-8th place finishers will also play the 18 Open 2nd-8th place finishers.
Also coming back to the AAU Volleyball National Championships this year is the Social Media Lounge, but it’s totally revamped, and is sporting a NEW name, “The Zone”! In this area, teams or individuals can come up on stage and take a photo in our “photo booth” with props and everything! During certain times during the tournament, we will also have a live stream set up at The Zone for “Hellos to Home”. You or your team can sign up for a time slot, tell your family and friends to go to the live stream broadcast and watch you give a shout out!
Speaking of live streams, games from the Orange County Convention Center will be broadcast during the event and ESPN 3 will be broadcasting select championship games from the ESPN Wide World of Sports complex live.
