The Global Challenge provides a great overseas volleyball experience. The level of competition combined with the cultural experience and location make it well worth the trip. I have great memories on and off the court.

The Global Challenge is one of my favorite events for many reasons.  The competition is excellent and yet the environment of friendliness and sportsmanship makes the event challenging but fun.  The fact that players and coaches all stay in the same hotel and have a chance to meet and learn about each other’s cultures makes it even more special. Any player considering it should definitely take advantage of this amazing opportunity.
