Evergreen Region Volleyball Association (ERVA) is one of the 40 regions of USA Volleyball. When you register for a membership with the Evergreen Region, you also become a member of USA Volleyball, just like the players who won medals in the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio do Janiero, Brazil! ERVA, in partnership with USA Volleyball, serves the lifetime sport of volleyball at all ages and levels. 

Residency Registration Requirement: ALL members residing within the ERVA’s geographical jurisdiction are required to register with ERVA. Members whose center of activities is closer to adjacent regions may petition ERVA for authorization to register with the adjacent region and should state the specific basis for the request. Such authorization must receive the written approval of each region’s Commissioner/Executive Director.

Where do my membership fees go?

When you purchase a Evergreen Region membership, about half the fees within the Region to fund and support our local programs. The other half goes to USA Volleyball to fund national-level programming. There are no refunds once a membership is purchased. 

Are there any requirements to become a coach?

Coaches, for youth, junior and adult play, must be registered members of the region in which they live, and pass an thorough background screening. Coaches are also required to have the USAV IMPACT/SafeSport certification in order to coach in a junior program. This covers the risk management issues and ethics of coaching, as well as information on drill design, skill-learning research and much more - all annually updated to the latest information.
