Mabuhay and welcome to the Philippines!
The Asia Pacific Activities Conference (APAC) was founded in the 1995-1996 school year and increased from six to twelve teams for the 2008-2009 school year. That year Brent hosted the first ever Girls’ Volleyball Super Tournament with all twelve teams. Nine years later we are thrilled to be holding the fourth ever Girls’ Volleyball Super tournament. It is a fitting first APAC Tournament to be played in our newly renovated Gym 1.
Volleyball is the one of the most popular sports in the world. It has over 100 years of history from its beginnings in the U.S. in 1895, and the love of volleyball has spread to every corner of the world. At this tournament alone, we have schools from five different countries and athletes from many more joining together for the love of the sport of volleyball. You have all put in many hours of preparation. May you play your best and be supportive of your teammates over the next few days.
An APAC tournament brings a vitality and excitement to the entire campus, not just the participants. Our students and faculty are looking forward to cheering you on as you compete over the next few days. We wish everyone a safe, positive experience on the court, in your home stays, and in the Philippines.
Good luck to all participants and coaches.
