2018 Top Flight Winners

The American Volleyball Coaches Association (AVCA) has unveiled the inaugural class of AVCA Top Flight Award winners. This new awards program is designed to recognize excellence in beach volleyball from all over the country and across all flights.

Greatness in Beach Volleyball isn’t limited to the #1 pairs on each team – the AVCA Top Flight award is designed to reward hard work and consistent play regardless of roster position. In order for a pair to be eligible for the award, two athletes must compete in at least 15 matches together and at a specific flight number. Should that pair win at least 75% of their matches – regardless of the overall result of the dual – those athletes will achieve “Top Flight” status.


The award is open to all teams whose active head coach is an AVCA member.
