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. We authorize and conduct indoor tournaments throughout the fall & winter months and authorize outdoor, beach and grass tournaments in the spring & summer months. GEVA conducts Adult and Junior Division programs including Junior High Performance and Paralympic Volleyball.
Tournaments are held on weekends at various venues throughout the region and usually last all day. A team can expect to play at least eight sets per tournament; more should they advance to the playoffs.
GEVA offers four skill levels for Adult Men and Women (AA, A, BB, B) GEVA offers age level competition for Junior Boys and Girls (single age groups starting at 10).
GEVA also has a variety of opportunities for officiating from training the novice to advancing the professional development of all.
