USA Volleyball is the National Governing Body for the sport of beach volleyball in the United States. USA Volleyball runs and manages the USA Beach National Volleyball Teams, the USA Beach Olympic Teams, and the USA Youth and Junior Beach National Teams for each gender.

Both the USAV and NCVA sand programs work to advance sand volleyball talent and build a broader and stronger pipeline of athletes and coaches for our U.S. Olympic Teams. The USAV and NCVA Sand Programs are the “pipeline” for young beach volleyball athletes who aspire to reach the elite level of their sport and who dream of representing the United States on the Beach National Volleyball Team.

Through indoor and beach volleyball. the NCVA promotes participation in a quality program that provides a positive and safe athletic environment through a variety of developmental and competitive opportunities for junior teams of all ages, skills levels, and diverse groups.

All players must be members of the NCVA to participate in tournaments.  If you are currently not a member and would like to play in the Beach Tournaments this season, don’t worry we offer a $20 Beach Membership. This membership option will be available for registration beginning on May 1, 2018.
