Welcome to FCA Volley Academy where our athletes will have the opportunity to train all year long!
For 4th – 9th Grade
The vision of FCA Volley Academy is to equip youth athletes with knowledge of the game, correct technique, confidence, courage, and leadership skills. We will encourage our athletes to use their “platform” to impact others as they learn how to compete as a great teammate on an organized travel team.
Throughout the year, the athletes will have an opportunity to learn all the aspects of the game through fast paced practices with lots of game-like touches, and endurance, positional, station, and circuit training.
Each session we will meet for Heart to Heart time at the end of practice where we will talk openly about the biblical perspective on the issues faced by many female athletes; things like identity, body image, comparison, shame and control…at the end of the study, we hope our athletes will understand true beauty and how a strong and competitive spirit can be godly and feminine.
Come join the FCA Volley Academy Family!
What: Do have a child who is interested in developing even more the game, skill, and LOVE of volleyball! FCA Volleyball takes the excitement, energy, passion, and learning of this great team sport and puts it all together into sessions of fun-filled training geared towards the intermediate to middle school level athlete. All aspects of the game are taught through drills and exercises that focus on passing, setting, footwork, hitting, blocking, serving, ball control, and serve placement. This co-ed program is designed for the more advanced beginner to the intermediate level and will incorporate essential life-lessons such as leadership, teamwork, habitudes, sportsmanship, and a short heart to heart looking at the life and ministry of Jesus. Our volleyball staff will assist each athlete in continuing to grow the skills of the game with a solid foundation through teaching, more advanced training, encouragement, fun challenges, reps, game-based drills, and always ending each day with game-like play aimed at developing the whole player. We are excited to add 2 scrimmages to each session and we will keep you posted on tourney site and other information.
