In an incredible display of power and dominance, East Coast Power has qualified teams in every age division of the USA Volleyball Girls Junior National Championships.
ECP is sending a record-setting 8 teams to USAV Nationals, including two teams in the 18s division. At the Keystone Region Volleyball Association (KRVA) bid in Harrisburg, EC Power teams won bids in every age group 12-18, the first time one club has advanced to the finals in every age division. East Coast Power already won two bids this year at national qualifiers in Jacksonville and Boston.
Congratulations to all the coaches, players and parents who have worked hard all season to support this amazing effort. No club in our region has ever sent this many teams to USAV Nationals! Go Power!
