The Association of Volleyball Professionals, or AVP, is the United States’ premier beach volleyball tour, headquartered in Newport Beach, California. Every U.S. beach volleyball Olympic medalist has toured with the AVP throughout their career, including gold medalists Karch Kiraly, Kent Steffes, Misty May-Treanor, Kerri Walsh Jennings, Todd Rogers and Phil Dalhausser. The 2016 season, the AVP’s 33rd, will run from April through September. The season will consist of tour stops in eight cities across the United States, including an FIVB Beach Volleyball World Tour Olympic-qualifying event.
After a 2010 reorganization overseen by the investment group RJSM Partners, the tour resumed operations on October 22, 2011 in Huntington Beach for its inaugural AVP Championships event. RJSM Partners, which was originally a minority investor in AVP, had a controlling interest starting April 2009 until 100% of AVP’s assets were purchased by AOS Group, LP. in 2012. Additional events under a new operational model were held in 2012, including the AVP Cincinnati Open, held Aug. 30 – Sept. 2 in Cincinnati, Ohio and the AVP Championships, held Sept. 7 – 9 in Santa Barbara, Calif.
