Volleyball is the #2 sport in the world, yet is often understated in our American sports culture among males. Resources for boys volleyball are limited. TVP is working to change that. You can help.

TVP teams spent four days during the first week of July competing in USA Volleyball Junio National Championships, along with more than 500 teams from the USA and Canada.
TVP 16s and 18s competed in the Boys East Coast Championships in Richmond, Virginia May 27-29 against top teams from New York, New Jersey, Virginia, Texas, and Florida. The young TVP 16s narrowly missed the gold bracket and a qualifying open bid to the USAV Junior National in a loss to Orlando Gold. However, a consistent performance and a bounce back in bracket play earned the team a runner up position in the Silver bracket and a 10 place finish overall, of 32 teams entered.
TVP 18 shows flashes of brilliance, and, inconsistency
The 18s worked through several lineups to find the consistency needed to grind through tough competition. Highlights include a victory against highly ranked Warren Sixpak in a tough first day pool play.
USA Women’s Professional Indoor Volleyball League:
On its Feasibility and an Examination of the WNBA
In 2016, more girls participated in high school volleyball (432,176) than basketball (429,504) for the first time (Friedman) in history. Girls in the latter sport have the WNBA and NBA to look up to, but there is still yet to be a professional indoor women’s volleyball league (from here on out, for sake of brevity, I will refer to this as a “volleyball league”). In comparison, boys in the United States have male professional leagues to look up to in almost all of the top boys’ high school sports. Although the prominence of female sports has risen dramatically since the implementation of Title IX, this is still evidence that there is a dramatic drop-off between male and female athletics. Recently, Jamie Davis, the new CEO of USA Volleyball, stated, “My target is to see the league launched within this Olympic quadrennial (before 2020)” (Fischer). While Davis does not specify the gender of his intended league, it is imperative that a women’s volleyball league be created for the reasons Davis suggests: “to create stars out of our athletes and build role models for our next generation of players.” In order to tackle the viability of such a league, this paper will examine the current state of volleyball in the United States. Then I will look at the performance of the WNBA as a model of a prospective volleyball league. Now that the popularity of women’s volleyball is surging, it is crucial to create female role models and sports icons for these young girls to look up to in order to bridge the gap between male and female athletics.
