SODAK FUTURE 40 and SUMMER SLAM

There's a volleyball event coming to South Dakota that's going to showcase the rising level of talent in high school volleyball in our state. The Sodak Future 40 and Summer Slam touranment happen at the Sanford Pentagon July 29-July 31, 2018. Organizer and originator of the idea to put this together, Darren Tipton of Adrenaline Fundraising, is excited to see all of this talent come together. "The biggest goal for this is to bring notariety and publicity to the growing sport of high school volleyball. The attention will help grow the sport!," said Tipton. For more info on the event go to Adrenaline Fundraising's website https://www.afvolleyball.com/home.

The event starts with action on Sunday July 29th as the future 40 players take the court. These 40 players were selected by a board of South Dakota High School coaches from all over the state. They'll compete amongst each other in front of coaches, colleges, media and fans. For player profiles go here. Here's the 2018 Future 40:
