2019 USA Men’s Junior

National Age Group Programs Born in 1999 and 2000

2019 U.S. Men’s Junior National Training Team

The U.S. Men’s Junior National Team is the highest level of programming for the junior age group and must qualify in order to represent the United States at the 2019 U21 World Championships. To qualify, the team will participate in a designated qualification tournament and earn a bid to World Championships, pending podium finish. If a bid to World Championships is earned a second tryout for the team that will be chosen for World Championships will occur. The second tryout, training and travel arrangements will be decided and posted once the date of the competition has been released by organizing committee. Typically, 19-24 athletes will be selected for a “second tryout” in order to then determine the final group of 12 for competition. This second tryout invitation will be received over the same invitation release dates as all other HP summer programs.

A final 12 athletes will be selected from the second tryout group to continue training and travel together to compete in the international competition. These athletes have the longest and most significant time commitment of all programs. USA Volleyball covers all associated costs for this program including travel to and from training and competition, meals, lodging, and gear. Additional details will be provided to those selected individuals along with their initial invitations.
