Tournament Schedule 2020

Need Help Finding Your Schedules?

Every tournament Empowered plays in, will have their schedule hosted on Advanced Event Systems (AES) online! You can go to their website to find yours for the upcoming weekend.

Step by step instructions:

1) Go to

2) In the filter bar search for your upcoming event name (i.e. "2020 Adidas Bluegrass Tournament" or even just a partial name)

3) Make sure you select the proper age group and/or division from the list of events

4) Once at your selected event's page, if the schedules have been posted you will see a link near the top left saying "Schedules & Results". This link will open up all possible schedules for every age and division at the tournament. NOTE: if the "Schedules & Results" link is not there it is very likely the schedules have not been posted yet.

5) From here you will be able to find your team either by selecting their division or by find your team under the "Clubs" tab. If you click this tab a list will populate and you can select Empowered Volleyball Academy. This will show all of our teams that will be present at this event and if you select yours you will find your schedule.

**AES also has an app you get on your mobile devices. The process is nearly identical on it as well.

Empowered's Tournament Selection

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

  1. Competitiveness:  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, bring out all of the top collegiate coaches, so these events  give our athletes the greatest amount of exposure, in order to fulfill their dreams of playing in college at the highest levels possible.
  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 continuing to host our Midwest Smack Power Series events, 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!
