Training Programs

 

 

Queen City Volleyball Academy offers a number of training programs to develop young athletes, create pathways to college volleyball and expand access to the game.

Since we are a small club, participating athletes benefit from multiple points of individualized instruction and a diversity of inputs from our coaches. In addition to volleyball training, QCVA places a priority on developing young people into active and productive citizens in the world.  It is our intention to build community and foster a genuine sense of belonging among athletes and their families. Though many of us will cross paths through volleyball, our hope is that any athlete’s experience with QCVA will lead to bigger things on and off the court. We’re guided by our values and our expectations, which we ask all QCVA community members to by abide by.

Travel Teams

QCVA organizes a few National level teams during each club volleyball season, with team sizes between 10-12 athletes. Travel teams practice three times per week and usually attend a minimum of eight tournaments from January to May of each year. Practices consist of a mixture of drills/skills development, strength and conditioning, and scrimmage play based on the needs of the team. We also integrate positional training, so athletes can build their craft in a specialized way. Read more about our program and register for tryouts here.

High Performance Training Program

As part of our mission to expand access to the game of volleyball in the Charlotte area, this intensive program develops volleyball skill and builds volleyball IQ among young people who are eager to grow as players. Participants will train two days per week with QCVA coaches. The program launches in early November. Learn more and register here.

Private Lessons

QCVA coaches offer private lessons at our training facility for athletes who want to benefit from individual training time. We’ll launch registration for private lessons soon.

Open Gym

QCVA hosts open gym sessions to give athletes the chance to experience our club, meet athletes and coaches and simply have fun playing volleyball. Register here for our current open gym sessions.

Summer Camp

During the summer of 2021, QCVA partnered with 2004 USA Volleyball Olympian Keba Phipps to host a five-day summer training camp. Stay tuned for programming for the summer of 2022!

Scholarship

We work to make decisions that we feel are best for the athletes and our coaches, and in service of our mission. As part of that pursuit, QCVA aims to provide our services at cost-effective rates with the goal to offer the most value to our athletes and their families. If your athlete’s participation in our programs is hindered by financial challenges, contact us at getinformation@qcva.org to discuss further.
