First Point Volleyball Foundation, was founded in 2016 by John Speraw, head coach of the USA Men’s National Team and UCLA Men’s Volleyball, and career nonprofit executive Wade Garard, First Point Volleyball Foundation exists to provide opportunities for young people to mature and develop through volleyball. Specifically focused on growing boys’ and men’s volleyball in the United States, First Point Volleyball Foundation initiates and celebrates FIRST POINTS whether that is the first point of a new collegiate team, a new high school team, or the first point of competitive volleyball for a 12-year-old. First Point Volleyball has raised $3.5 million in less than four years and has helped start 18 new collegiate men’s volleyball programs. The Foundation has three strategic initiatives: (1) Growing collegiate opportunities especially scholarship opportunities; (2) Growing high school boys’ opportunities; and (3) Extending our Reach Diversity Initiative – expanding volleyball opportunities to boys and men of color.
