The USA PVL is a grass roots professional volleyball league that began in 2012. It is made up of teams from among of the forty (40) regional volleyball associations across North America. Sanctioned by USA Volleyball, USA PVL offers tournament play and a League Championship event each year. The stated mission of the PVL is to create a successful and sustainable indoor professional volleyball league for elite-level post-collegiate male and female athletes in the United States.
