CAMERON PARK, Calif. --- MaxPreps.com and the American Volleyball Coaches Association (AVCA) will continue their partnership in an effort to promote high school girls volleyball and highlight accomplishments of the nearly 400,000 student-athletes participating in the sport annually throughout the entire nation.

MaxPreps will continue to serve as the official statistics and results provider for the AVCA's High School Player of the Week program and the AVCA's Under Armour Girls' High School All-America program.

Each week the AVCA will choose an athlete in each of the eligible states who had a great week in play to receive the award.

"Every player has the opportunity to win this award. If you have a great week in play and your coach enters your stats into MaxPreps, you can win." MaxPreps Coach Marketing Manager Megan Loghry said. "You don't have to be on the best team in the nation or even be the best player on your team. This program is unique in that way; every athlete has the potential to get recognized."
Coaches must submit statistics to MaxPreps.com in order for their athletes to be considered for both programs.

MaxPreps publishes schedules, scores and standings for each of the nearly 17,000 schools participating in girls' volleyball across the country. MaxPreps also provides high school coaches with free team pages, statistical software and a variety of other free services.

The American Volleyball Coaches Association, based in Lexington, Ky., is the national leader in volleyball coaching education. With a membership of over 4,900, the AVCA supplies educational materials, creates media content and provides recognition opportunities for coaches and players at all levels of the sport.

2013 will be the 6th year of the program. The program recognized 385 in 2011 and 389 in 2012. Winners receive a MaxPreps/AVCA branded letterman's patch and recognition on both MaxPreps.com and AVCA.org.
