A New Way to Identify and Nurture Talent

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

NTDP increases the opportunities for athletes to be seen and evaluated and to develop within the USAV National Team system. This is fluid system with an athlete-centered focus that emphasizes the health, well-being and overall development of each individual player. Players will 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-group categories begin with girls under-15 and boys under-16 with the oldest age groups for both genders being under-21. Athletes U15 and older may participate in the NTDP Training Series held quarterly at locations across the country. A new series of local events called NTDP Accelerators will offer athletes the chance to train against top competition in their area.

Younger athletes may participate in USAVplay. These single-session and summer-camp programs allow any athlete to participate in a development-focused training session.

There will not be tryouts for NTDP. Athletes will be selected to  training and competition via a nationwide scouting network. Scouts from around the country will be selected to identify athletes at qualifiers, bid events and high school/club tournaments across the United States.
