2018 West Region Volleyball Showcase Pods Set

Showcase schedules will be released soon.
With game schedules to be announced soon, here's a look at the lineups for each of the six pods that will make up the 2018 West Region Volleyball Showcase in late August.

This regional crossover features all 36 teams from the West playing at six sites in California (the PacWest Conference has hosting rights this coming season). The two-day extravaganza will be played at Azusa Pacific, Concordia-Irvine, Fresno Pacific, Dominican, Academy of Art and Holy Names.

Each team plays four non-conference matches over two days in their assigned pod -- one each against the four teams from the other two conferences.

The makeup of the pods is based on the 2017 final regular season conference standings. Pod A features seeds 1 and 2, Pod B features seeds 3 and 4, etc.
