The Junior Volleyball Association (JVA) is pleased to announce Mizuno USA as title sponsor of six JVA hosted and run events in 2019. 

The JVA and Mizuno have a shared history, as Mizuno was the first ever title sponsor of the 2007 JVA World Challenge, the organization’s first hosted and run event.

JVA is happy to welcome back Mizuno as the Title Sponsor for our JVA Tournament Series” shared JVA Executive Director Jenny Hahn.. “Mizuno came on board with JVA in our early growing years and their support was integral in helping us fund our education programs. Mizuno is well-known and well-respected in the industry and we look forward to our renewed relationship.”

Similar to the JVA’s mission to give back to it’s member clubs, Mizuno’s approach is to give back to the communities that support the brand. Both organizations approach everything with a unified front about making a positive impact on the junior volleyball community and cultivating a passion for the love of the volleyball.

Mizuno is very excited to partner with a great organization like the JVA and to increase our list of tournament sponsorships for 2019 and beyond” shares Clint Sammons, Brand Manager for Mizuno USA. “We are committed to volleyball and to continuing to support the athletes who make the sport great, and we feel the JVA embodies these same values.
