Your gift can truly make a positive impact! Over the last several years, USA Volleyball accomplished a great deal – thanks in part to the generous support of so many.
Here is just a glimpse of what USA Volleyball achieved in the past year:
- At the 2020 Olympic & Paralympic Games in Tokyo, USA Volleyball’s women’s national team programs made history. All three teams – the U.S. Women’s Indoor National Team, U.S. Women’s Beach National Team of April Ross & Alix Klineman and the U.S. Women’s Sitting National team won gold medals. The U.S. Women’s Indoor team brought home its first gold medal in the history of the program with a historic win over Brazil.
- USA Volleyball membership and the growth of the sport of volleyball is at an all-time high with over 470,000 members in the 2021-2022 season.
- The introduction of the USA Volleyball Beach Tour created new opportunities for young athletes all across the U.S. to play in beach volleyball as they compete for a bid to the USA Volleyball Beach National Championship.
- In partnership with the First Point Volleyball Foundation, USA Volleyball invested in the growth of volleyball for boys and men by giving a $1 million grant to the Southern Intercollegiate Athlete Association (SIAC) to assist in the formation of sanctioned Division I and II men’s volleyball programs in historically Black colleges and universities.
- Event participation in USA Volleyball events continues to rise and offer more opportunities for junior players to compete.
- The National Team Development Program (NTDP) was formed to enhance and streamline the National Team pipeline offering opportunities for athletes to receive continuous training and support as they pursue their Olympic and Paralympic dreams.
- The discipline of Beach ParaVolley (3 vs. 3 beach volleyball for athletes with disabilities) was officially recognized by USA Volleyball and the program accelerated its impact with the establishment of a development center at Hickory Point Beach thanks to a generous grant from the Norelli Family Foundation.
