Attention top HS volleyball players

The Breakdown's annual photo shoot invites are being sent now!

Invitations will be sent for our 11th annual Breakdown Sports Media volleyball photo shoots! Those who are invited are among a select group of players from all over Minnesota, representing different geographic areas and grades who have been selected for this honor. All invitations were sent through your high school coach via email.

Past participants include: 2010 Miss Volleyball Kellie McNeil (Lakeville North), 2011 Miss Volleyball Leigh Pudwill (Centennial), 2012 Miss Volleyball Sarah Wilhite (Eden Prairie), 2013 Miss Volleyball Alyssa Goehner (Lakeville North), 2014 Miss Volleyball Samantha Seliger Swenson, Julia Doyle (Wayzata), Kelsey Chambers (Jordan), Jessica Newman (Barnum), Kelsey Schile (Eastview), Melissa Racz (Apple Valley), Halle Enderle (Mankato East), Julianne Blomberg (Chanhassen), Karlie Hauer (Andover), Taylr McNeil (Eagan) and many more!

How are players selected? The Breakdown has a panel that consists of members all across Minnesota. At the conclusion of the season, our staff submits its picks of players worthy to be considered among the best in the state and from that list, a group of finalists is selected for this honor.

What’s next? Please fill out the registration forms, which includes information that will appear in your profile in the book.

What to bring? Your high school uniform.

How does it work? In order to accommodate a large group of top players (and to avoid unnecessary wait times), we have spread our photo shoots out over a several-hour period. Please feel free to come at any point during the shoot, but be advised that the first hour is usually the busiest.

At the photo shoot, we’ll take several photos of you in your high school uniform, as well as group photos with any teammates that have been invited. You’ll be recognized among the top volleyball players in the state! Our book is viewed by colleges across the nation.

Can't make it to any of the dates? You can still be in the book and receive the same special deal! Just fill out the registration form without selecting a date, complete the Q and A form and email a photo to

If your schedule changes, please come when you can, but be advised there may be a wait. If you have any questions, please call 612-454-1440 or email at We look forward to seeing you!
