Here is what teams are saying about their interest in the Inagurual MLK Invite


"Arizona State University Men's Volleyball Club is excited to participate in the MLK invite. Being a member of the SCCVL, it is important for us to support all events produced by our league and to bring with us the highest level of competition. These events are conducted at a professional level with the most important features front and center. Great competition and community building. We believe the MLK invite will be an excellent launch to the 2019 club season."

Scott Lucas - Arizona State University

"The fact that it falls over a 3-day weekend and a very important holiday is a plus, and should be tons of fun to be in California on a 3-day weekend with my teammates/friends." 

Spencer DePaso - Northern Arizona University

"North Dakota State University has chosen to participate in this tournament as a way to play against higher rated competitive teams to better prepare for the national tournament. We are attempting to be able to participate at the D1A level in a jump from the D1AA level. Also, it’s very cold in Fargo in January so it will be a nice get away from the cold!"
