USA Volleyball High Performance Program praises Court & Spark

Award-winning documentary will screen October 18 at 7th Annual Indie Spirit Film Festival in Colorado Springs

Some terrific feedback from Denise Sheldon, manager of USAVolleyball’s High Performance Program:

This summer, Court and Spark was viewed by more than 1000 Olympic hopefuls at USA Volleyball High Performance Programs and 300 more volleyball-enthusiast military kids in Germany. Every single girls' program had an evening scheduled to watch the Court and Spark video, from our 10 and 11 year old Future Select athletes all the way to the girls and young women on our U.S. Youth and Junior National Teams.

 I can tell you that, at all levels, the response was terrific. Players were mesmerized and inspired by your journey and learned so much about the possibility of playing overseas and for Team USA. They saw the faces of our National Team athletes and staff and have new players to root for when they have the opportunity to watch Team USA play. The athletes and the coaches laughed with you and cried with Kristin and asked lots of intelligent questions about all things volleyball.

All I can say is that it was a huge success, and I really appreciate everything you all did to create this video and allow us to show it to all of our High Performance athletes.

Our deepest thanks to Denise and to all her staff, athletes and parents at USA Volleyball High Performance!
