NBC, NBCSN and NBC Sports Live Extra will air live coverage of all eight AVP beach volleyball tournaments for a second straight year as players work their way toward the Rio Olympics.

More than 14 hours of coverage this spring and summer starts with the New Orleans Open on April 17 at 1:30 p.m. ET on NBC.

All NBC and NBCSN coverage will also be streamed on Live Extra.

AVP Tour stars include Olympic champions Kerri Walsh Jennings and Phil Dalhausser and London silver medalist April Ross, all of whom are on pace to make the Rio Olympic team.

Pay special attention to the Cincinnati Open in May, which doubles as an international FIVB event that goes into global Olympic qualifying standings.
