Play in Europe
at the European Global Challenge
AAU Volleyball is excited to announce the opportunity to play in Europe this summer at the 2017 European Global Challenge. The 2017 Team will land in Vienna, Austria and travel to Maribor, Slovenia for pre tournament trainings and matches, then head to Pula, Croatia for the tournament.
For the past 10 years, the town of Pula, Croatia has witnessed a volleyball showdown between youth and junior national teams from Russia, Italy, Slovenia, Croatia, Czech Republic, Austria, Hungary and Denmark. Add to that a mix of club and country federation teams from Romania, Germany, Bosnia, Montenegro, and Puerto Rico. USA regional HP, youth national, junior national, and USA collegiate national teams have all traveled across the globe to compete against some of the best youth volleyball teams in the world.
Competitive international volleyball. That’s what you get at the European Global Challenge. All teams, regardless of their nationality, stay in close quarters at the beach front Hotel Pula to encourage a cultural exchange between players and coaches. The hotel is perfectly positioned within walking distance to both the competition arena and the crystal blue coastline.
The tournament kicks off with an opening ceremony honoring past Olympians in attendance from various countries at the edge of the one of the last remaining fully intact Roman Colosseums in the world dating back to 68 AD. For itinerary and application, please click here:
