About Junior Volleyball Association:
The Junior Volleyball Association (JVA) is the only association that is solely focused on junior volleyball and the needs of junior clubs. The mission of the Junior Volleyball Association is to promote the growth of youth and junior volleyball through program and resource development, education and events.
About The Side-Out Foundation:
The Side-Out Foundation is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that was established in 2004. Inspired by one mom and embraced by the entire sport of volleyball, the mission of The Side-Out Foundation is to educate young athletes and their communities about breast cancer, both with respect to prevention and treatment, and to fund cutting edge breast cancer research. Side-Out is focused on changing the way breast cancer is treated forever.
The term side-out refers to a situation in volleyball when one team wins a point while its opponent is serving, thereby regaining serve or control of play. It is hoped that Side-Out will do the same for breast cancer patients, providing them with the support, education and best available treatments to regain control of their lives.
