What is HIGH PERFORMANCE?

USA Volleyball is the National Governing Body for the sport of volleyball in the United States. The national organization runs and manages the USA National Men's and Women's Volleyball Teams, the USA Olympic Teams, and also USA Youth and Junior National Teams for each gender. The Youth and Junior National Teams, along with a number of tiered training programs, fall under the High Performance (HP) Department. The national HP Department works to advance volleyball talent and build a broader and stronger pipeline of athletes and coaches for our USA Olympic Teams.
The HP Program at USA Volleyball is the "pipeline" for young volleyball athletes who aspire to reach the elite level of their sport and who dream to one day represent the USA on the National Men's or Women's Volleyball Team. HP provides many team and camp opportunities for young volleyball athletes in three designated age groups for each gender. These age groups are determined by an athlete's year of birth (using international criteria) and begin approximately when they are 13 or 14 years old, continuing for six seasons, often into their collegiate years.
The mission of the USAV High Performance Program is to build a national pipeline of junior volleyball athletes and coaches, creating broad opportunities for advancing the level of play, competition and skill development throughout the sport.

What is happening in the Arizona Region with HIGH PERFORMANCE?

The Arizona Region is working with directly with USA Volleyball to provide the best possible opportunities for all members in our region.  We are doing this in the following ways.

  • The Region hosts USA Volleyball National High Performance tryouts in Arizona each year.  There are separate tryouts for the girls and boys.  The National tryouts in Arizona for boys is held in late January or early February; the National tryouts for girls are held in mid-late March.  These dates are arranged each year around the girls’ national qualifier schedule. 
  • The Arizona Region forms HP teams to compete in the High Performance Championships in July each year.  The Arizona Region will sponsor up to three girls’ teams (International Youth, National Select and/or Future Select) and up to three boys’ teams (International Youth, National and/or Regional.  For 2020 the HP Championships will be held in Pittsburgh, PA.

What is the advantage of attending the Arizona Region Tryout? 

The Arizona Region tryout is exactly the same at the other tryouts held at national qualifiers all around the country.  Attending the Region hosted tryout is for the Arizona Region team selection only.  It also means that athletes can play HIGH PERFORMANCE even though they may not participate in national qualifiers with their club team. If an athlete does not tryout in Arizona, they will not be chosen for the AZHP teams.
