A New Way to Identify and Nurture Talent

Young beach players who want to take the next step on their path to the podium can now be part of USA Volleyball’s Beach National Team Development Program (NTDP).

The NTDP is an athlete-centered and fluid system focusing on the health, well-being and overall development of each individual player. Athletes have increased opportunities to play with and against the best athletes from across the country and to learn from some of the best minds in the game.

Age groups for the Beach NTDP fluctuate between under-15 to under-21 for girls and under-16  to under-21 for boys. Athletes are selected for the NTDP via our nationwide Scouting Network. Scouts from around the country have been selected to identify the top athletes in the country, and. scouting takes place at top events and qualifiers across the United States. Once identified by the Scouting Network, top athletes have the opportunity to be invited to participate in the Beach NTDP Training Series held quarterly across the country.

In addition to the Training Series, athletes may also be nominated by their club coaches and club directors to participate in the Accelerator programs. Accelerators are held regionally and promote additional opportunities for athletes to train with and against the top competition throughout their region. Both the Training Series and Accelerator programs feature elite beach coaches.
