2019 USA Boys Future Select

National Age Group Programs Born in 2005, 2006 and later

USA Boys Future Select A1 National Training Team Program

The A1 Program is the highest level of programming available to athletes in the Future Select age group.

Participating athletes train as a group for five days before splitting into ability-tiered teams of 12 to compete at the USA High Performance Championships immediately following training. 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 High Performance Championships is an international tournament hosted by USA Volleyball annually and features international teams from a variety of countries plus Region High Performance teams from all over the United States. In past 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 event is frequented by many college coaches across the country including the staff in the A1 program, Continental team programs, and Region HP programs, and by unaffiliated collegiate coaches attending to actively recruit at the tournament. (see below details for more information on the A1 program at High Performance Championships).
