Putting the Experts Where the Players Are

The USA Volleyball National Team Development Program (NTDP) has enlisted 90 of the top volleyball coaches and experts in the United States to be part of its 2021 Scouting Network.

The NTDP Scouting Network serves as the NTDP talent identification process for age group national teams as well as the NTDP training series. This process replaces the former tryout selection process that was part of the High Performance Program.

The Scouting Network includes coaches and experts from across the United States, covering many of the USAV regions. Due to the NCAA dead period, scouts will remain remote through the end of May, but will soon be attending many events and training sessions around the country.

Among the coaches scouting on the beach side is Andrew Fuller, head coach of Stanford’s beach program, has a long history with USAV NTDP.

“I’m thrilled to help the Beach NTDP alongside some of the best coaches in the world,” Fuller said. “I’m excited for us to cast a wide net into communities all over America to help young people achieve their dreams of wearing a USA uniform. Great beach volleyball players can be found in every corner of this country and it’s going to be a really enjoyable challenge to identify them.”

Scouting will be a continuous and fluid effort of the network. Program selection for summer NTDP will begin in early May. To assist our scouts, beach athletes will have their own profile site and should check back for more information.

What Scouts Are Saying...

“I am inspired to be a part of this groundswell change to help develop the USA Beach Volleyball pipeline. As a longtime coach and tryout leader on the Girls HP side, I am particularly excited to expand into a dual-gender scout role to help grow the boys beach game and help bring some of our uniquely talented Hawaii boys into the great tradition of excellence that so many before them have walked for Team USA.”
