Men's U21 National Team Players

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (June 11, 2021) – USA Volleyball announces the athletes and coaches, selected by its National Team Development Program (NTDP), who will attend a joint training session for boys and men’s age group national teams on July 28-Aug 5 in Anaheim, Calif.

The athletes on the Men’s Collegiate National Training Team, the Under-21 Men’s National Training Team, and the Under-19 Boys National Training Team comprise some of the best of the next generation of men’s players. They have their eyes on the Olympic Games Paris 2024, Los Angeles 2028 and beyond.

The training session, which will take place at the National Teams Training Center, will coincide with the Olympic Games Tokyo 2020 and players will be encouraged to watch the matches.

Because these teams will not compete internationally in 2021, USA Volleyball has invited the U19 programs from Bulgaria, Canada, and Puerto Rico to attend and help create a strong international friendly experience.

The head coaches of each of the teams are Chris McGown (Gold Medal Squared) for the Men’s Collegiate Training Team), Kevin Burch (Ohio State men’s head coach) for the Men’s U21 Training Team and Charlie Sullivan (Springfield men’s head coach) for the Boys U19 Training Team.
