Training is conducted by some of the top High Performance Pipeline Coaches in the country and features an intense international skill and system focus, including hands-on opponent scouting training. Teams are selected based on athlete performance during training.

The USA HP Championships is an international tournament hosted by USA Volleyball annually and features international teams from a myriad of countries plus Region High Performance teams from all over the United States. In the last two years, teams have come from Canada, Chile, China, Dominican Republic, Mexico, New Zealand, Peru, and Puerto Rico. USA A1 Teams typically “play up” an age group for this tournament; for instance the Select play in the International Youth Division. The USA HP Championships is frequented by many college coaches across the country, both on staff in the A1 Program, Continental Team Programs, and Region HP Programs, and by unaffiliated coaches attending to actively recruit at the tournament.
