HP Program Packing List
A detailed logistics email will be sent approximately two weeks prior to the program start date. Please see the information below, which is consistent across all programs.
Check In/Out: Typically check in and out will be around noon on the first and last days of the program.
Airport Shuttle Service: Athletes will be met personally at the specified home airport by coaches of the USAV staff. The exact location of pickup will vary among airports - we will specify in the logistics email. Please wear your USAV HP tryout t-shirt so athletes are easily recognized. If an athlete is registered as an Unaccompanied Minor with the airline, we will follow up with an email to athletes who will be registering as an Unaccompanied Minor. Please send proof that you have paid for this service to email@example.com.
Housing: Athletes will be roomed with 1-5 other players, depending on the type of room the facility assigns to us.
Health Services: Please bring in writing any medical issues or nagging injuries of which we should be aware. Written advice from your doctor or trainer will be helpful to the onsite athletic trainer.
In case of medical emergencies, athletes will be taken to a major area hospital based upon recommendations of staff trainer.

-5 days of volleyball attire: black or navy spandex shorts, socks, shoes, kneepads
*USAV will provide 3 training t-shirts athletes will be required to wear

Schedule: The program schedule will be e-mailed to you prior to the start of the program.
Roommates/Rooming: Athletes are not permitted to make rooming requests. Just like being on a U.S. National Team, it is imperative that athletes get to know the players with whom they are training and learn to work together with new teammates quickly. This is a terrific opportunity for players to get to know the players from around the country and make life-long friends.
If traveling by plane: Please bring a carry-on bag (backpack/gym bag) with a change of gym clothes(including shoes) for at least one night. Airlines can lose your luggage and often it takes a day or more to be returned.
What not to bring: Fragile or breakable items, jewelry or items of value.
Program Rules/Policies: Athletes are not permitted to leave the program at anytime without being handed over directly to a parent/guardian, as approved by the Head Coach.
If athletes are to have any visitors during a program, they must be family members. You will need to receive specific approval from the Head Coach. You will also need to provide the name and driver's license # of the visitor(s).
There will be no alcohol, drugs, or tobacco allowed during the program. Violation of this policy will result in the expulsion of the athlete and the athlete will be returned home at the parent's expense immediately. There will be no refunds under this scenario.
Behavior standards for this program, as with all USA Volleyball Programs, are extremely high. Athletes are expected to demonstrate respect for coaches, each other, and our program hosts. You are expected to conduct yourself as responsible adults. Any for of hostile, abusive or obscene behavior will likely lead to expulsion and a quick trip home.
