USA Volleyball (USAV) is a non-profit organization which is recognized as the national governing body of volleyball in the United States by the Fédération Internationale de Volleyball (FIVB) and the United States Olympic Committee (USOC).[1] It is headquartered in Colorado Springs, Colorado, and was founded by the YMCA of the USA. The organization is responsible for selecting and supporting US national teams that compete in FIVB-sanctioned international volleyball and beach volleyball competitions such as the Olympic Summer Games. USA Volleyball is also charged with fostering the development of the sport of volleyball within the United States through involvement with its forty Regional Volleyball Associations (RVAs).[2]

Publications[edit]

Volleyball USA is the official magazine of USA Volleyball. Published four times a year, the magazine provides information regarding the national teams, youth programs, beach volleyball, and regional activities.

The USA Volleyball Domestic Competition Regulations (DCR), formerly published annually, is now published on a two-year cycle as of the 2009 season. The DCR is based on FIVB rules for both indoor and beach volleyball, while incorporating modifications for domestic play in the United States. Other sections of the DCR include refereeing techniques, scorekeeping instructions, and tournament guidelines.
