The Garden Empire Volleyball Association (GEVA) is the local Regional Volleyball Authority of USA Volleyball, the national governing body of volleyball, and as such is responsible for the promotion and growth of volleyball in New Jersey, Long Island, and the Greater Metropolitan Area of New York City (to include Westchester, Rockland, Dutchess, Putnam, and Orange Counties).
GEVA promotes volleyball by offering competition, training, and education in a multitude of disciplines. We authorize clubs who in turn offer training programs, and competitive opportunities on many levels. Many of these opportunities include indoor tournaments throughout the fall & winter months and outdoor, beach and grass tournaments in the spring & summer months.
As the volleyball community is diverse, GEVA conducts Adult and Junior Division specialty programs including Junior High Performance and Paralympic Volleyball.
For our Adults division, we offer five levels of play for both Adult Men and Women; Open, AA, A, BB and B. At the Juniors level, we offer age level competition for Boys and Girls between the ages of 10 and 18 years of age.
The growth of the game also encompasses officials and in such GEVA also has a variety of opportunities for officiating from training the novice to advancing the professional development of all.
In today's world, we are constantly on the go so make sure you are connected with us on social. On our Facebook, Twitter and Instagram pages, we will be sharing all of our latest updates on USAV and SafeSport registration, coaching certifications, High Performance, tournaments and much, much more.
