What is PVL?

The USA PVL is a grass roots professional volleyball league that began in 2012. It is made up of teams from among of the forty (40) regional volleyball associations across North America. Sanctioned by USA Volleyball, USA PVL offers tournament play and a League Championship event each year. The stated mission of the PVL is to create a successful and sustainable indoor professional volleyball league for elite-level post-collegiate male and female athletes in the United States.

 

What is the Dream Team?

The Dream Team is the official PVL team of the Northern California Region (NCVA), which encompasses Northern California, Bakersfield to the Oregon Border, and Northern Nevada.

The Dream Team seeks to embody a number of goals and objectives:

  1. To represent the region in national competition by developing the highest level teams possible.
  2. To contribute to the growth of a professional volleyball league in the United States.
  3. To influence and develop NCVA junior players through exhibition matches, clinics and other outreach activities.
  4. To provide further opportunities for top-level adult players in the region to continue playing volleyball at a high level.

 

Who plays on the Dream Team?

Tryouts for the team are held annually in September and December. The top former collegiate and pro players from the region will be selected to play for the Dream Team.

Any female athlete that is not in high school or college may try out for the Dream Team.

 

Where can I see the Dream Team play?

The Dream Team will participate in the President’s Day PVL Invitational, in San Jose, CA, and the Far Western PVL Invitational, in Reno, NV. All additional matches will be posted on the Dream Team page.

 

Who does the Dream Team compete against?

Foremost, the Dream Team competes against all other PVL teams in the Nation. The closest competitors are the teams from the Puget Sound (Washington), Arizona, and North Texas. CLICK HERE for a list of other PVL teams.

 

Will the Dream Team offer any outreach or training?

A central goal of the program is to contribute to the growth and development of volleyball in the NCVA region. Subsequently, the Dream Team is working to organize events in the area to help juniors and adults improve in the sport. These events may include exhibition matches, clinics, and other volleyball events taught and run by the Dream Team coaches and players. Stay tuned for more details!

 

I am interested in sponsoring or supporting the Dream Team – how can I get involved?

The Dream Team is actively looking for corporate and personal sponsors to contribute in any way they can – financial or non-financial. Funds given to the team go directly into the purchase of equipment and the subsidization of jerseys and travel costs. In exchange for sponsorship, corporate promotional material can be featured on jerseys and other marketing materials. Please contact NCVA for more information at [email protected].
