Any player in grades 9-11 nominated by a JVA Club Director that displays leadership, responsibility, and success in extracurricular activities (i.e. volunteer work, honor roll, class officer, musical achievements, etc). Nominations will require the player's name, club, team, and a list of accolades earned outside of the volleyball court. Nominees must be freshman, sophomores or juniors in high school. Limit 3 players for age division per club.

Nomination Period
Nominations will be accepted April 9th-May 4th.

Selection Process
Awardees will be chosen by the JVA Awards Committee and announced May 17, 2018.

Recognition
Winners will be presented with an award and gift from Ultra Ankle® at the JVA Midyear meeting at the AAU National Championships in Orlando, FL. Winners each receive an NCSA I Will Award to provide guidance and exposure to the recruiting process.
