a lot of young girls grew up watching the 3 time Olympic Gold Medalist popularize the game over the Olympics. Nationally there are four organizations represented in the Beach scene, USA Volleyball (USAV), Amateur Athletic Union (AAU), Rox VB, and Association of Volleyball Professionals First (AVPFirst). These four organizations host a variety of tournaments throughout the year that are spread out over the entire United States. Because there are four main organizations, there is no one elite entity compared to another.

It is really dependent on the club and what their goals are for their athletes. Colorado offers opportunities for our junior beach athletes with most of these programs.
