About AVL

Academy Volleyball League is a 6 week volleyball training and competition program for girls AND boys in 3rd-9th grade. This is an opportunity to train with some of the best volleyball coaches in the NW.  We  train on Mondays and Fridays and will have 2  in-house tournaments as well.

We are committed to training the whole athlete through the latest coaching techniques and philosophies. We do very little talking during the training portion of our practice, with most of their time spent in drills that emphasize a maximum amount of quality ball contacts. Players that are learning need to have as many opportunities for a trial and error experience reading movement and contacting the ball. A Trial – Feedback – Strategy – Repeat process is utilized as much as possible, allowing our players to attain tremendous levels of competence in all six skills of volleyball. All players are trained in all skills.

What kind of experience do I need for the AVL?

The AVL is for a beginner or intermediate player who wants to improve their skills to play club or for their school.  Athletes who have only had YMCA or Boys and Girls Club experience are encouraged to join AVL. 

The first two weeks of each session - coaches will assess players and put them into groups based on their skill level.  This assessment is done through competitive ranking games that places players into groups of similar ability. Court Teams will train together as we introduce the skills and they will compete in two in-house tournaments during the 6-week season.
