Lone Star Championship Series to come to American Bank Center Exhibit Hall

 (Corpus Christi, TX January 28, 2015)

– The American Bank Center is happy to welcome the Corpus Christi Force Volleyball Club for its first ever girls’ junior volleyball power league tournament – the Lone Star Championship Series Corpus Christi Stop (LSCS-CC).  The tournament is hosted by the Corpus Christi Force Volleyball Club and will take place at the American Bank Center Exhibit Hall, on Saturday, January 31 from 8:00am-9:00pm and on Sunday, February 1 from 8:00-5:00pm.  The tournament will include two divisions, combining for 60 teams from the Corpus Christi, San Antonio, Austin, and Houston areas. 



This tournament is an integral component of the nationally recognized Tour of Texas Power League, which serves as the premier Texas pathway to the USA Volleyball Girls’ Junior National Championship (Junior Olympics) and AAU Girls’ Junior National Championship.  As one of the strongest volleyball leagues in the country, the Tour of Texas attracts college recruiters from all over the nation to witness the competition and to seek out the future stars of college volleyball.  The top 12 teams from each age category at the Tour of Texas Qualifier will join 12 prequalified teams from the prior year power league.  These 24 teams will move on to the Tour of Texas – Stop 1 (Dallas) and the Tour of Texas – Stop 2 (Houston).  Teams finishing in places 13-24 at the Tour of Texas Qualifier qualify for the Lone Star Championship Series and move on to the Lone Star Championship Series – Stop 1 (Corpus Christi) and the Lone Star Championship Series – Stop 2 (Houston).  This will still be an extremely competitive level of play.
