General Info

In conjunction with USA Volleyball, the NCVA will continue our Regional High Performance program. Participating athletes will represent our region in either an inter-regional USA Volleyball High Performance Championship tournament in July or the East Coast All Star Championships in July. The goal of the High Performance Program is to provide volleyball athletes with the best coaching and competition available in Northern California. Many athletes attend the National Tryout to compete with the best athletes in and around the Region. Attending a National Tryout can help to increase an athlete’s visibility, particularly if the players plays for a team that does not get much exposure to collegiate recruiting.

Members of NCVA High Performance teams will have the opportunity to:

  • Compete with the best athletes in the country within their age groups both in the USA & abroad.
  • Play with some of the best athletes in Northern California.
  • Receive top quality coaching and instruction.
  • Learn USA Volleyball systems and techniques.
  • Increase individual visibility, particularly for those from club teams with low exposure.
