Junior boys and girls will have 3 opportunities to try out for our Arizona Region High Performance teams in May 2020.
Junior boys competing at HP Championships Summer 2019
Our Arizona Region of USA Volleyball is planning on forming boys and girls indoor teams to compete at the USA Volleyball High Performance Championships again in Summer 2020.
WHAT IS HIGH PERFORMANCE VOLLEYBALL?
High Performance - also known as HP - is a program working to advance volleyball talent by building a broader and stronger pipeline of athletes and coaches for the USA Olympic teams.
Few are chosen from around the country for the national USAV teams. However, Arizona has LOTS of talent! So we coordinate teams comprised of local juniors to compete at the championships, as well. Teams represent the Arizona region.
The Arizona Region provides High Performance training with outstanding Arizona coaches. Tryouts are open to all juniors in Arizona. The top athletes who try out are selected and invited to join our teams which train and compete at the championships with other teams from around the world.
High Performance works on a two-year cycle, with a cycle starting at the beginning of an even year (2020) and finishing at the end of an odd year (2021). Athletes remain in the same age group throughout the two years, then move up to the next age group at the beginning of the next even year to start a new cycle (what will happen next in 2022). Athletes may only try out and play in their own age group – there is no “playing up.”
2 weeks. Lifelong volleyball friendships.
