Summer Academy Program Options

Full Academy

The full academy includes the Indoor Academy, your selection of Competitive or Instructional Beach and the Conditioning Program. This is for athletes looking to develop their skills on both the beach and indoor side. The full academy offers the best of both with beach and indoor practices. This is our most popular program selection for all ages of volleyball athletes.

Competitive Beach Academy

Our Beach Academy begins the last week of May and runs until mid August. 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.

Indoor 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 putting in the time and effort needed to do so.

Instructional Beach Academy

Our Regular Beach Academy begins the first week of July and runs for 7 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 or with a partner. These athletes are simply looking to develop their beach volleyball skills or as a team, They may wish to test their skills at an OVA event during the summer.

Conditioning Program

Our conditioning program is designed as a general conditioning program to complement any club program. Our program focuses on speed, agility quickness, core strength, and general strength development. During these training sessions, our coaches will focus on the proper execution of each exercise, providing error detection and correction to ensure optimal performance is being achieved. This program is only available to those participating in the FULL ACADEMY. If those in other programs are interested can join for an additional fee of $210.
