BJNC in Dallas
The 2019 USA Volleyball Boys' Junior National Championships will be held in Dallas from June 30-July 7 at the Kay Bailey Hutchison Convention Center Dallas. The BJNC, which will be in its 40th edition in 2019 after Phoenix hosts the event 2018, typically draws over 450 teams and nearly 5,000 competitors from across the country competing for one of 12 titles from ages 12-and-under to 18-and-under.
"Dallas continues to prove to be one of our best cities for USA Volleyball Championships," Pingel said. "It was very popular in 2016 for the BJNC and we know it will again in 2019."
Dallas has served as a tremendous host city partner of many past USA Volleyball events. The BJNC was also staged in Dallas in 1998 and 2016. The GJNC have been held in Dallas in 1998 and 2008, while the GJNC18 was held at the Kay Bailey Hutchison Convention Center this past April. The USA Volleyball Open National Championships have been held in Dallas four previous times (1960, 1996, 2002 and 2011). Dallas has hosted two weekends of the FIVB World League as the U.S. Men's National Team hosted Italy, France and Korea in 2012 followed by Russia, Australia and Bulgaria in 2016.
"We consider volleyball a strong part of the sports fabric here in Dallas and are honored to serve as the host of the 2019 USA Volleyball Boys' Junior National Championships," Dallas Sports Commission Executive Director Monica Paul said. "We look forward to welcoming all of the USA Volleyball family, players, coaches, officials and fans for another big event in Dallas."
