COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (Nov. 2, 2021) – USA Volleyball has selected Tulsa, Oklahoma, to host the 2022 USA Volleyball All-Star Championship on July 19-23 at the Cox Business Convention Center.
Approximately 100 all-star teams from USAV regions across the country are expected to converge on Tulsa to vie for championship titles. Regions will select up-and-coming girls and boys athletes from clubs in their areas to represent them on the court in multiple age groups and divisions.
“We are excited to partner with our 40 member regions to bring the USA Volleyball All-Star Championship to Tulsa,” said Jamie Davis, USA Volleyball President and CEO. “The tournament will offer volleyball athletes from around the country the opportunity to face high-level competition and will put the spotlight on the top talent from our regions.”
“We’re thrilled that USA Volleyball selected our city to host its flagship domestic event,” said Ray Hoyt, President of Tulsa Regional Tourism. “Knowing this season’s best-of-the-best junior players will be competing on our courts is an honor and continues to elevate Tulsa as a premier sports destination.”
“The City of Tulsa is honored to host this coveted championship in volleyball,” said City of Tulsa Mayor G.T. Bynum. “Teams will be giving it their all over the course of five days, and that’s exactly what the city will be doing for them. We can’t wait to show our support and hospitality for these athletes.”
The event is anticipated to bring a total economic impact of $8,558,529.48 to Tulsa with 9,509 room nights booked.
The USA Volleyball All-Star Championship was formerly known as the USA Volleyball High Performance Championship.
USA Volleyball will live stream all courts from the All-Star Championship as part of its partnership with BallerTV, so family and friends who cannot attend the event in person can watch on their favorite device.
