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.

Info on Open Gyms


On September 30th, the Ohio Valley Region commissioner issued an edict that bans open gyms, tune up activities, etc. prior to tryouts except for non-participating OSHAA athletes and players 8th grade and below and only during certain timeframes. This policy change was surprising and unexpected to all USA Volleyball clubs. The reasoning cited by the commissioner concerns the “welfare of the athlete” in that there is not enough time between the end of the school season and beginning of the club season.


While we agree that the welfare of the athlete is important, we feel there are better ways to address that issue and also believe that a ban on open gyms, tune up activities, and other programs takes away opportunities from parents and athletes.


We believe that open gyms and instructional programs are beneficial in the following ways:

  1. Open gyms allow athletes and parents to preview a club, their coaches, club culture and facilities prior to a tryout while allowing clubs to preview prospective members as well
  2. Provide low cost supplemental skill development prior to club tryouts
  3. Allows athlete’s whose school program has ended to keep up their skills while the Ohio High School Volleyball tournament concludes. (This can be up to 6 weeks)
  4. Allows clubs to generate revenue in order to pay bills such as rent and utilities during non-club season months


Despite this policy change, USA Volleyball clubs believe there is a huge demand for open gyms and instructional programs.


We would like to hear your opinion on this issue. Please take one minute and complete this short survey.
