Why Choose Academy?


Mission Statement

Formed in 1998 by Raynani Reinhardt, David Weitl, and Diane Flick, Washington Volleyball Academy was established to provide advanced technical volleyball training to qualified student-athletes enabling them to compete successfully at the national level in their age group.

Founding Principles

We are a community-based non-profit organization committed to training and developing student-athletes through competitive participation in the sport of volleyball.

We are a staff of professional coaches supported by a strong administrative structure with clear areas of accountability and channels of communication.

We are committed to developing the whole athlete through the latest coaching techniques and philosophies consistent with USA Volleyball® (USAV) as well as the American Volleyball Coaches Association® (AVCA) of which our instructors are members in good standing.

We train our athletes through a coordinated academy-wide program that ensures consistency and efficiency of coaching methodology and playing systems from the youngest teams to the elite levels.

We maintain strong working relationships with all other Washington volleyball programs from junior high school through collegiate levels.

We provide educational assistance to families whose son or daughter may be qualified to solicit collegiate athletic scholarships.

We provide, when available, needs-based financial assistance to ensure that participation is available to all qualified student-athletes.
