helping the next generation soar

AVPFirst is proud to be the signature youth volleyball initiative of the AVP Pro Beach Volleyball Tour.  It is a nonprofit organization founded to create a national pipeline for youth volleyball development by establishing the highest quality beach volleyball standards while investing the necessary resources to ensure improved participant performance.  It is specifically designed to create access for all children and their families, regardless of the neighborhood in which they reside or their economic status, by offering a series of community clinics, training camps, coaching education workshops and junior beach tournaments.  All of which feed into a culminating annual event, the AVPFirst National Championships.
