The following are a few opportunities to play boys volleyball at an elite level. Most will involve travel and extra cost but are a great experience for Utah boys to test their skills against other teams in the nation.
USA JR Nationals & High Performance
USA Volleyball is the National Governing Body for the sport of volleyball in the United States and is recognized as such by the Federation Internationale de Volleyball and the United States Olympic Committee. Each spring, USA Volleyball hosts High Performance Tryouts for boys at various locations across the nation. Depending on your evaluation, you may be offered a spot in a USA Volleyball High Performance National Training Program hosted at locations across the country. You would then have the opportunity to register for the program and enter the USAV High Performance Athlete Pipeline.
AAU JR Nationals
AAU sanctioned tournaments can be found all over the country and the pinnacle finish each year is hosted by the AAU itself: the AAU Boys Nationals. No qualifying is needed so you can plan to participate well in advance. AAU offers discounts on many hotels and college coaches are in attendance. Your annual AAU membership is valid at any of these tournaments.
