The year 2019 marks the 36th anniversary of the Northern California Volleyball Association (NCVA) servicing Northern California from the Oregon border to Bakersfield including Northern Nevada.
Under USA Volleyball, the national governing body for the sport of volleyball in the United States, the Northern California Region became incorporated as a non-profit corporation called the Northern California Volleyball Association, NCVA, in 1982. The NCVA abides by the rules set forth by USA Volleyball; however, it operates as a completely separate business entity. The NCVA hosts and approves competition, fellowship play, clinics, leagues and tournaments. The NCVA also hosts three National Qualifying Tournaments for USA Volleyball. In addition, the NCVA aids in the development of players, coaches, referees and scorekeepers. The longevity of our service has enabled us to create strong ties to the volleyball community, which, in turn will help us to reach out to our members as well as other players, parents and coaches within the community.
The “Vision” is to promote participation in a quality program that provides a positive and safe athletic environment through a variety of developmental and competitive opportunities for junior players of all ages, skill levels, and diverse groups.
The Division will create a diverse and varied system of competition. It will develop education and training programs for all players and participants. The Division will create non-discriminatory entry-level playing opportunities. It will create reciprocal relationships for inter-regional, national, intra-regional, and international competition. The Division will establish partnerships with related groups to promote volleyball.
As we continue striving to uphold our mission of supporting and developing NCVA programs, community volleyball programs and organizations, actively collecting and distributing volleyball-related information, providing educational opportunities for the regional volleyball community while working in conjunction with volleyball’s national governing body, we look forward to increasing our membership base for the new season.
