MILWAUKEE, WISCONSIN (May 16, 2022)–  The JVA is pleased to announce the 2022 JVA Athleaders powered by Fivestar to celebrate the success of an impressive group of male and female indoor and beach junior volleyball athletes who exemplify academic excellence, leadership, responsibility, and selflessness.

These 20 honorees are among the top junior volleyball student athletes in the nation who display outstanding achievement in the classroom, in addition to leadership, involvement in extracurricular activities and community service, all while excelling as volleyball athletes.

“These incredible honorees truly represent what it means to be an all-around student athlete. A successful team needs teammates that make the team better due to their leadership and love for the team, and the 2022 JVA Athleaders embody that spirit. We are so happy to recognize this year’s group of honorees, as well as the record number of athletes who were nominated for this selective award,” said JVA Executive Director Jenny Hahn.

Recipients will be presented with an award from the JVA, as well as Fivestar App, the world’s first and only sports highlight rating app designed to give all athletes a platform to showcase their achievements.

Fivestar is thrilled to be partnering with JVA to highlight these amazing athletes who excel on and off the court,” said Brett Tillett, Senior Vice President for Fivestar App. “This year’s Athleader class exemplifies the characteristics of excellence and leadership and we are so proud of this year’s award winners!”
