Elite youth athletes in baseball, volleyball and other sports will compete in front of thousands of fans as well as hundreds of college coaches and pro scouts during the three-day Publix Fall Flex Weekend.
In the Baseball Village, over 60 of the top high school baseball travel teams will participate in the Prep Baseball Reports’ PBR Cup, the must-see baseball tournament of the fall.
Next door in the 170,000 square-foot Champions Center, Rally Volleyball’s Rally High will be in action. This GHSA sanctioned event will feature the top high school volleyball players in the state of Georgia.
“Publix is proud to support the 2021 Champions Weekend featuring Georgia’s high school athletes,” said Brenda Reid, community relations manager for Publix’s Atlanta Division. “Family events like this create great memories and instill a competitive spirit that these young people will carry with them for years to come.”
Beyond the sporting events, the weekend will also feature guest promotions and giveaways, a radio broadcast from the southeast’s top sports talk show 680 the Fan, and much more.
“Publix is the perfect partner for our final Champions Weekend of 2021,” LakePoint Sports Director of Marketing David Pate said. “Both our brands are focused on the guest experience and are excited to have them be the title partner for the Publix Fall Flex weekend.”
