If I play recreationally for my Park & Rec or AAU team, can I also be a member of USA Volleyball?

Yes! You can be on a different USAV team, while playing park and rec, or sign up your whole team and play USAV events as well. Some of the 40 RVAs may choose to run a friendship tourney period that runs in the fall, which allows players to practice and/or play with various USAV teams in advance of the regular season. Contact your local RVA office for details.

What kind of memberships are there? 

Each RVA has a variety of registration levels from which to choose. Check with your region to see which types are available in that region. In general, they are:

  • Adult (for players, coaches, officials)
  • Junior Volleyball (for players ages 18 and under)
  • Youth (for players ages 11 and under)
  • Outdoor (for late spring/summer only play)

Are there any requirements to be a coach?

Coaches, for youth, junior and adult play, must be registered members of the region in which they live. Since 2005, USA Volleyball has been protecting the children who play by requiring coaches who work with players under the age of 18 to have a current background screening.

U.S. Center for SafeSport "Core" Training is required training for adults who have regular contact with amateur athletes who are minors, and/or have regular contact with or authority over an an amateur athlete who is a minor. The training must be completed before regular contact with an amateur athlete who is a minor begins; or within the first 45 days of initial membership, or upon beginning a new role subjecting the adult to the MAAPP. 

Coaches are also required to have the USAV IMPACT course certification in order to coach in a junior program. IMPACT is a four-hour clinic presented either locally onsite through your region office, or online through the national office.

The IMPACT course, started in 1990, covers the risk management issues, legal duties and ethics of coaching, drill design, USAV insurance, skill learning research, techniques and team systems, and much more - all annually updated to the latest information. Contact your region office for the schedule of local IMPACT clinics or register for IMPACT OnDemand.

Are there any requirements to be an official?

All referees and scorekeepers must be registered members and background screened by the region in which they live. Depending on the level of certification and the region, requirements vary.
