JVA World Challenge presented by Mizuno USA

April 3-5, 2020. Louisville, Kentucky.


The JVA World Challenge is a 3 day event run by the JVA at the Kentucky Exposition Center. This is a midyear championship that awards the 1st and 2nd place teams in each division with a paid entry to the AAU National Championships in Orlando, Florida! The JVA World Challenge is an AAU sanctioned event and participants need to be members of AAU.

The age divisions are for all girls 18 & under. Each age division is broken into 2 or 3 competition divisions: Open, Premier, & Club. 840 of the top teams from across the country compete in this highly recruited midyear event year after year, making it the best midyear championship event. 

"Your staff puts on an amazing event with the World Challenge and I wanted you all to know how much it's appreciated. Everything from communication, registration, check-in, scheduling, organization and on and on...! Very few people truly understand the effort that's needed to get an event of this size to run so smoothly and you guys get it done every year. Great job everyone. We look forward to seeing you guys again next season." ~Sean Gritzman, Top Flight VBC Director
