For the love of volleyball! We especially love volleyball at a high level. Which is why we are creating and shaping professional volleyball in America. "Going Pro" are two driving words on the mind of millions of young and aspiring athletes in any sport. Only in volleyball, that dream of playing your sport on a professional level is met with the harsh realities of the absence of a viable option upon graduation. Until the establishment of the NVA, the phrase "Going Pro" meant going overseas to compete at the highest levels of the sport. The National Volleyball Association is here to change that, and provide a viable league to showcase the amazing talent we have locally in the sport of volleyball. It's time to bring the excitement, energy and competition of a professional volleyball league to the United States.
The NVA follows FIVB rules and guidelines. We do have minor deviations from the rule book such as allowing pursuit, but the majority of rules set out and established by FIVB are consistent with the league. Most of these modifications are an attempt to remain consistent with collegiate rules in the United States, which is what many of our athletes are familiar with.

Our league is divided into two five-team conferences: American and National.
Five talented American professional volleyball teams make up this conference that include three west coast teams, one southwest team and one midwest team. Representing Los Angeles the Blaze, Las Vegas the Ramblers, Utah the Stingers, Texas the Tyrants and Chicago the Untouchables.
Five talented American professional volleyball teams make up this conference that include two southern California teams and one southwest, north east and south east team. Representing Orange County the Stunners, Ontario the Matadors, Dallas the Tornadoes, New Jersey Team Freedom and Orlando Southern Exposure.
Our ten teams are becoming active participants in their local communities meeting with neighbors to develop local partnerships that make a difference.
