Each fall, QCVA organizes a few competitive travel teams who play club volleyball through early summer.

Training

Since we are a small club with a number of coaches, athletes benefit from multiple points of individualized instruction and a diversity of inputs. Practices consist of a mixture of drills/skills development, strength and conditioning, and scrimmage play based on the needs of the team. Teams often practice together to work on specific skills and build unity among the athletes.

Development

In addition to volleyball training, QCVA places a priority on developing young people into active and productive citizens in the world. Our ‘off the court’ programming includes discussions on emotion management, interpersonal skills, leadership development, nutritional consultation, volleyball IQ enrichment, college recruiting and more.

Community

QCVA was intentionally designed to offer local residents an opportunity to feel truly a part of youth sports community. We do so through great coaching, strong teams, life skill programming and a supportive community. Our athletes are expected to sit together at tournaments, cheer on other QCVA teams, study our competition during breaks, watch film to learn from mistakes and celebrate each other’s successes. We actively involve each athlete’s entire family, so that they feel a genuine sense of belonging within the organization. Learn more about our expectations.

Tournaments

QCVA teams attend 8-9 regional tournaments each season. In making our tournament selections, we try to strike a reasonable balance between high competition for our athletes/coaches and travel expenses for our families.

Tuition

QCVA understands that every family wants to make the most of its investment in your child. We offer our services at cost-effective rates with the aim to offer the most value to our participating athletes and their families. Tuition ($1,800 for the 2020-21 season) covered tournament entry fees, facilities, equipment, team building activities, coaching fees, fitness classes, college recruiting support, and leadership workshops. Tuition did not include: Apparel, shoes, bookbags, and travel expenses. 

Scholarship

No one will be turned away due to an inability to pay. If the need is established, we’ll work with that athlete’s family to support their participation on the team. This is inclusive of finding efficiencies in traveling to/from tournaments and stays during tournaments. We also offer a limited number of tuition scholarships to athletes who demonstrate a need and submit an application.

Skill Development

In early 2022, we are planning to launch a program that teaches the fundamentals and helps young athletes (ages 12-16) grow in the game. If you’re interested, please email us at getinformation@qcva.org so we can reach out to you once we launch this program.
