Introducing USAVplay

Looking to experience the fun volleyball brings without being forced into a high-pressure environment? USAVplay is the program for you! USAVplay is focused on developing new volleyball players in a fun, high-energy environment, according to USA Volleyball Cheif of Sport Dr. Peter Vint.

Develop your skills and have fun

USAVplay is designed to provide younger players of all experience levels with opportunities to develop skills and confidence in high energy, position agnostic, and developmentally appropriate camps and clinics. USAVplay consists of both multi-day camps and single-session pop-ups. These events will adopt the principles of small-sided games proven to help accelerate development by increasing the number of opportunities athletes have to perform key skills during training and competition. Furthermore, these are not tryouts, and there is no expectation of being “seen” or recruited. These are purely about development and fun.

When possible, USAVplay will work to incorporate both beach and indoor opportunities at camps and pop-ups. These hybrid camps will follow the same principles and design but will allow young athletes to play both beach and indoor volleyball.

For each USAVplay camp, athletes will be grouped into waves based on their age as NTDP staff evaluate the distribution in each registration. Example:  U11-U12 athletes might be in the early wave and the U13-U15 athletes are in the later wave. NTDP staff will share these wave breakdowns no later than one full week before the camp starts so that families can finalize travel plans as needed. Within those waves, athletes might be grouped based on age, gender, birthday, grade and other similar ways.

All of our staff, coaches and athletic trainers must be USA Volleyball members, Safe Sport trained, and pass a USAV background screen.
