(Milwaukee, Wisconsin) The JVA is pleased to release the 2023 JVA Watch List powered by Fivestar featuring over 3,600 girls indoor junior volleyball athletes from 200 JVA member clubs across the country. The players nominated are among the best in the nation in their age division this season.

“”We are extremely proud of the athletes selected to this year’s JVA Watch List powered by Fivestar. These athletes represent the highest level of volleyball performance across JVA member clubs nationwide. Each year the JVA welcomes more member clubs, and this year’s growth is not only a testament to the growth of JVA, but also to the astounding growth of our sport, along with the exceptional training the athletes are receiving at their respective clubs. We look forward to following the success of these athletes this season and viewing the highlights shared on the Fivestar App,” said Jenny Hahn, JVA Executive Director.

The 2023 JVA Watch List honorees will be eligible for selection to the 2023 JVA All-National Team powered by Fivestar in June. Every athlete on this list will have the opportunity to display their skills to be selected as National Player of the Year, by uploading their highlights onto the Fivestar App, a social media platform dedicated to creating and rating sports highlights.

“Fivestar congratulates all athletes who earned a spot on the 2023 JVA Watch List,” said Fivestar’s CEO, Erin McNeally. “Entering our second year of partnership with JVA, we were thrilled to see the growth of the program year-on-year. Fivestar is dedicated to showcasing sports highlights for all athletes, everywhere, and we are impressed by the caliber of talent these female volleyball athletes have displayed on the court and on their Fivestar profiles.”

Fivestar launched in June 2022 with the mission to create a single aggregate location for all athletes–across all sports, at all levels of play–to curate their performance highlights and receive feedback and exposure from sports fans, peers and coaches worldwide. Focused on creating a positive-only environment, Fivestar does not allow comments and focuses rather on a 1-5 rating system, leveling the playing field for athletes everywhere. 2023 JVA Watch List athletes are encouraged to download Fivestar in the Apple or Google Play stores and continue uploading their highlights to their Fivestar profiles, which will be utilized for consideration in forming the 2023 JVA All-National Team.
