The games provide an opportunity for advanced level athletes from south central Minnesota who may or may not receive the opportunity to showcase their talent in other state all star events. This is a first class event and the following link details last years all star game at St.Olaf College.

SCHSVBASG Philosophy: Our philosophy does not eliminate any athletes who are nominated. We value the head coach’s judgment in nominating top level athletes in their region. We will add more games rather than eliminate nominations.

Seniors Are able to be sponsored while underclass women need to pay their own free via their family. The waiver will be sent to nominees. A class picture needs to be sent electronically or postal mailed to the address listed above on the letterhead; a game day program will be produced. Final Stats need to be sent electronically to by the deadline.

Each All Star Athlete receives: (a) top quality Russell Dri-Fit Volleyball jersey w/number and logo (All Star provides her own black/navy spandex short); (b) All Star Game gym sack; (c) lunch; (d)All Star Games roster t-shirt; and (e) game day program.

Nomination Process: Each varsity head coach is encouraged to nominate their athlete/s who she/he believes are worthy to be in this showcase event. The nominee needs to be an all-state and all-conference caliber volleyball player. The All Star Game is open to seniors as well as underclasswomen.
