3/6/12 UPDATE:
Due to low registration and lack of secured coaches received to-date, the Western Empire Volleyball Association has decided to postpone its High Performance Program until next season. There will be no tryout session on Sunday, March 11th or 25th.

------------

The Western Empire Volleyball Association is pleased to announce the formation of a region High Performance Program for the 2012 season.

The Western Empire Volleyball Association HP Program is designed to further develop the top junior volleyball players in our region by expanding the opportunities our players have to train and gain national level experience. For our athletes, the goals of the program include providing top-level skill development and training, additional exposure to collegiate coaches, and providing elite region players with the opportunity to compete in the highest level junior tournament available in the United States by representing WEVA at the High Performance Championships against the best players from other regions and other countries. We also look to provide additional and unique development opportunities for our region’s elite and aspiring coaches.

WEVA looks to form one boys’ team in the Youth or Select age group and one girls’ team in the Youth or Select age group with the goal of attending the High Performance Championships at the end of July.

WEVA strongly encourages all its players and coaches to get involved in WEVA HP!!!

How are players selected?
Players are selected through a multi-tiered competitive tryout process in compliance with USA Volleyball National Team Development Standards. Athletes who wish to be part of the WEVA HP Program will attend two WEVA HP tryouts. From those two tryouts, the HP Staff will ask a certain number of athletes back for a third tryout. At the conclusion of tryout #3, the HP Staff will invite players to the WEVA HP Camp and to participate as members of the WEVA HP travel team that competes in the USA Volleyball High Performance Championships in July.

Youth:   1995 and 1996

What is High Performance?
USA Volleyball is the National Governing Body for the sport of volleyball in the United States. It establishes and manages the USA National Men's and Women's Volleyball Teams, the USA Olympic Teams, and also USA Youth and Junior National Teams for each gender. The Youth and Junior National Teams, along with a number of tiered training programs, fall under the High Performance (HP) Department. The High Performance Program works to advance volleyball talent and build a broader and stronger pipeline of athletes and coaches for our USA Olympic Teams. HP is designed to bridge the gap between our USA National Teams and youth volleyball programs across the country. This is done through a system of national tryouts that qualify athletes for training programs, camps, and youth and junior national teams. The HP Program at USA Volleyball is the “pipeline” for volleyball athletes who aspire to reach the elite levels of the sport.
