Meet Britt

Brittany Joy Hochevar

I come from a lineage of hard-working, fun-loving, faith-abiding, life-enthusiasts. The name was Hočevar when my grandparents crossed the big drink from Slovenia/North Italy.  I was born in the steel city of Pueblo, Colorado. But, I grew up all over the “Nations Playground” where chasing dreams was bred and nurtured and sport became the family business.


I attended Long Beach State University where I got  Broadcast/Journalism and Marketing degrees. While I was there, I went to 2 NCAA Women’s Volleyball Final Fours, was a finalist once and an “All-American” twice. 


I’ve racked up about 100,000 miles every year for the past 6 years circling the globe competing on the FIVB Beach Volleyball World Tour and the AVP domestic Pro tour. 


My core business right now is still volleyball.  My “in the mean time” minutes are filled with writing, designing, speaking, and teaching.


I am always seeking the renewing of the mind and the spirit is home no matter where in the world I am.  It gets messy and it gets hard… real hard.  But, I dig that. 






JustB strong.

Hochevar reunited with Fendrick for the first time since 2007, and the duo advanced to six semifinals in seven tournaments, placing second in both the season opener and finale. They were the top-ranked team on the tour in terms of points. Hochevar was third in hitting percentage (.465). On the FIVB Tour, Hochevar opened the season playing once each with Summer Ross and Emily Day. She and Fendrick had a best of fifth three times in their nine FIVB events together, including a 5th at the World Championships in Stare Jablonki, Poland.


Hochevar decided to take one final indoor contract in Siberia. After returning from her indoor professional season in the Russian Super League, Hochevar formed a partnership with Angie Akers. The duo played in 10 FIVB events. Hochevar finished the season with a tournament with Emily Day, placing 13th. Domestically Hochevar and Akers had a best of third in their four events, while she also placed third in her only domestic tournament with Branagh.


Hochevar reunited with Fopma to compete internationally, progressing from country quota to qualifier to main draw (Hochevar's first ever) in their first three events. In Myslowice, Hochevar partnered with Kerri Walsh for the first time, and the duo advanced from the qualifier to place seventh. Hochevar teamed with Lisa Rutledge for seven tournaments, with a best of ninth, before concluding the season with a ninth with Nicole Branagh. Domestically Hochevar played three events with Rutledge, winning once, and one tournament with Branagh.


Hochevar formed a partnership with Dianne DeNecochea, and they advanced to the finals in just their second event together in Santa Barbara after upsetting the top two seeds. The duo played all seven AVP events together.


Hochevar continued her partnership with Fopma, logging 12 top-10 finishes in 14 AVP events. In Brooklyn the pair won three straight contender's matches to advance to the finals, the first for both players.


Hochevar spent the indoor volleyball season, this time, in Istanbul, Turkey competing for Galatasaray Sport Club. When her indoor season came to an end she began the beach season with Burdine, getting a best of ninth in four events. Switched partners to Jennifer Fopma and the duo's best finish was a seventh in Long Beach after advancing from the qualifier, Hochevar's first qualifier since 2005.


Hochevar signed an indoor contract in Valencia, Spain and spent 3 months there before returning to Puerto Rico. She finished the indoor season in Agua Dia. Brittany played the first seven beach events with Lauren Fendrick, with a best of seventh. Partnered the rest of the season with Keao Burdine with the exception of two events with Holly McPeak. In her final event of the year, Hochevar placed fifth in Cincinnati with Burdine to establish a career best. (.92).


Played one event with Angie Akers, then four events with Logan Tom in her inaugural pro beach events, before Brittany injured her low back with a 9 mm disc buldge and an 18mm fragment pinning her sciatic nerve and paralysing her left leg for months. She decided against surgery and attacked it wholistically with meditation, accupuncture, hyperbarric therapy, massage, Pilates, and prayer. During her own rehab she became a certified Pilates instructor at the Pilates Institute of Southern California.


Hochevar played professionally indoor for Pinkin de Corozal in Puerto Rico, taking third in the league. She began the beach season playing in four qualifiers with two different partners. For the next three qualifiers she partnered with Kimberly Coleman, and she advanced to her first two main draws, including Manhattan Beach.

Hochevar spent the majority of the year training and competing with the USA Women's Indoor National Team. Once named "alternate" for the Athens Olympic Team, Hochevar made her pro beach volleyball debut in Chicago, but failed to advance from the qualifier.

 Hochevar has partnered with an indoor Olympian (Logan Tom), three beach Olympians (Holly McPeak, Nicole Branagh and Misty May-Treanor), and with Kerri Walsh Jennings (indoor and two-time beach Olympian).

Less than a week after Hochevar posted her career best with a fifth-place finish in Cincinnati in 2007, her younger brother Luke was called up to the major leagues.
