What Is AVP America?

AVP America is the largest grassroots outdoor volleyball organization in the United States. Created in 2011 by East End Volleyball and Great American Volleyball, AVP America has over 100 member organizations from throughout the US. In 2017 there were 22,000+ dues paying members from 45 states and 10 countries.

The goal of AVP America is to foster cooperation among beach & grass volleyball promoters throughout the US to build up the sport. This is being done with the following items visible at www.avpamerica.com :

  • AVP Ranking System based on player’s results from tournaments throughout the US
  • Online Registration that seeds players based on AVP Ranking System in all divisions
  • $40,000 Beach Grand Prix Program that awards cash prizes based on results from the year’s tournaments, professional to novice for male, female and coed tournament players
  • $10,000 Grass Grand Prix based on a player’s results in grass tournaments
  • Doubles National Championship Tournament for beach teams. Players can win trips to the nationals by winning regional championship tournaments. A Grass Nationals will be created in the next couple of years.
  • League National Championships for league teams that win their regional championships
  • Junior Program with tournaments, clinics and a Junior Nationals
  • Discounted prizes and equipment from AVP America and its affiliated corporate partners 

AVP America promoters have access to a sophisticated website database system. Combining these benefits into one master system for all the members lets them grow faster than if they ran as unconnected individual organizations. We are developing regional programs fostering cooperation, which has never happened in beach or grass volleyball that will help the sport grow! 

AVP America is committed to returning member dues to the players directly as prizes or through member organizations.  

Our goal is to offer benefits and programs for players of all levels.
