The Academy for Volleyball Cleveland

OUR MISSION:  We believe that it is imperative for young players to receive proper volleyball training while learning important life lessons in responsibility, preparedness, and teamwork. At AVC, we prepare players with the physical and mental skills they need to be better athletes, overcome obstacles, and achieve their goals, both on and off the court. We provide a training environment for all skill levels to develop volleyball aptitude, build confidence, and most importantly, have fun. This is what we do.

                    AVC ANNOUNCEMENTS:

Looking for a new club for next Season?

Choosing the right club for you and your family depends on your goals. Whether it be to learn the basic skills, improve your overall volleyball aptitude, enjoy the travel volleyball experience, or compete at the highest level possible and possibly earn a college scholarship. We feel that AVC offers the opportunity for all of those experiences and enable you to achieve those goals. So...


...What makes AVC different?

  1. Culture and Training Philosophy - AVC has built a culture based on an advanced training system that builds consistent fundemental skills at younger ages and then implements advanced game strategies at older age groups. Players and parents agree to a code of conduct that supports our culture.
  2. Organization - Communication is paramount and AVC keeps you in the know. Tournament schedules, hotel bookings and other important information are communicated up front.
  3. Location - AVC is centrally located in Valley View which is key to attracting players from all corners of Northeast Ohio and making teams the most competitive in the area.
  4. Cost - AVC is not the least expensive club nor the most expensive club in the region but the value is the gratest. Be sure to compare what is and what is not included in your club fee when coparing clubs. Click here for the Quick Fact Sheet to compare.
  5. Exposure - AVC's top teams play at the Open level in tournaments which is the highest possible skill division. College coaches work with our recruiting coordinators to attract AVC players to their programs and to find good fits between athletes and schools. Click here to see our recruits.
