The NERVA HP program seeks to identify, train and provide a completive opportunity to the top players in our region. The program consists of tryouts, trainings camp and participation in the USA Volleyball High Performance Championships.

What makes NERVA HP different?
This program is subsidized by the New England Region and this allows us to tailor our program to suit the player’s needs. All training that our players receive will be in the same format that the USA National Team uses for its training sessions. This style of training and the intensity of the competition is designed to bring the athletes game to the next level.

How can you become part of this program?
We will be having tryouts for NERVA HP teams.

There will be a combined USAV HP and NERVA HP tryout before the Mizuno Boston Volleyball Festival.
