The National Team Development Program Accelerators will provide opportunities for clubs and regional high performance programs to nominate promising players to receive an invitation to local best vs. best training sessions. These sessions will be organized by USA Volleyball and run in a manner similar to competitive sessions within the NTDP Training Series. Accelerators give opportunities for “next level” athletes to play with and be challenged against the best athletes in a more localized setting.
After an initial roll-out in 2021, Accelerators will be held monthly in ways that do not interfere with athletes’ club or school programs.
The age definitions below have been defined with reference to growth and maturational data and study that drives USA Volleyball age-eligibility and selection processes.
