Summer Volleyball Academy



Our certified trainers will perform FMS testing for all the athletes. This testing is allow our trainers to identify areas of imbalance through their shoulders, back, hips, and legs. With this information in hand we are able to best provide a conditioning program that helps address each individual athletes needs.Training sessions will take place between their indoor and beach training begining in July. During these training sessions our trainers will focus on the proper execution of each exerciser, providing error detection and correction to ensure optimal performance is being achieved. This program is only available to those participating in the FULL ACADEMY.


The Indoor Academy brings together some of our countries top professional athletes and coaches each summer. In addition to having an outstanding coaching staff we also provide the low coach to athlete ratio of 1:9. This ratio ensures that each athlete is receiving optimal error detection and correction from the coaching staff at every training session. Athletes will have regular use of  video analysis to ensure they have a clear understanding of how they are currently performing a skill and to also identify the changes that are still needed. All this makes the Indoor Academy a perfect fit for the athlete who is serious about taking their game to the highest level and is dedicated to put in the time and effort needed to do so.


Our Beach Academy begins the last week of May and running until August 14th. Our professional coaching staff will guide teams through a seasonal plan of technical and tactical skills designed to prepare them for OVA competitions.

The Competitive Beach Academy is a perfect fit for athletes who are looking for the Club practice environment that is designed to optimize their training efforts and help push past comfort zones in preparation for competition.

Please note that those attending the Competitive Beach Program should be registering with a playing partner who they will train along side to help ensure optimal performance.

Instructional BEACH ACADEMY

Our Regular Beach Academy begins the first week of July and runs for 6.5 weeks.

Similar to our competitive program, athletes will have the opportunity to learn the unique technical and tactical skills used in Beach Volleyball.

This program is geared more for those who are not looking to compete in the OVA Beach events on a regular basis.

Athletes can register as an individual simply looking to develop their beach volleyball skills or as a team that may wish to test their skills at an OVA event during the summer.
