Tournament Schedule 2016-17

Empowered's Tournament Selection

3 factors go into the difficult selection process of our schedule each year:

  1. Competitive:  Higher level competition at the proper time in the development process, has been proven to create the greatest amount of individual and team growth.
  2. College Exposure:  Larger, higher level events, give our athletes the greatest amount of exposure, in order to fulfill their dreams of playing in college.
  3. Fun Environment:  Volleyball is a sport, and sports are ultimately designed for enjoyment and growth.  We choose events that not only the athletes love, but that are extremely fun for the whole family as well.  

On top of all the major events, we will also be participating in the newly combined Midwest Smack Power Series that combines 8 host clubs and 2 successful power leagues into 1 large well diversified and talented Power League.   These events have been perfect for getting every team the competitive prep they need for the major exposure events!
