In the Spring of 2016, I was joined by former Head Coach of the Australian Women’s National Team and decorated Division 1 US College Coach, coach Blase to assist me in offering young athletes from 3rd to 12th Graders, who are either true beginners or almost accomplished players a true, high quality and high tempo volleyball program with a real competitive edge.
The sole objective of this Academy is to help its young members in making the best MS & HS school team possible at a fraction of "club" costs.
Academy programs run non-stop, all year long in an 8 or 10 weeks session format. I have created this academy solely out of passion to give young players the opportunity to participate in volleyball year round. It is the only affordable and logical option to try volleyball first and see how your young athlete will perform.
In this coming 2017/18 season, our travelling Spikes™teams will compete only in a few local tournaments and privately organized scrimmages against club teams. These will serve as preparation to the much larger Super Regionals or Grand Prix AAU sanctioned qualifiers tournaments with the ultimate goal of the season being the 45th AAU Girls' Nationals in Orlando FL.
The JVA and the AAU are at this time our Academy sole affiliations, and because of our deeply rooted philosophy the height of a player will NEVER be prioritize over talent, work ethics and attitude.
Except for the Elite and travelling Spikes™ teams, there are no tryouts to enter the academy, but spots are very limited. JumpStart® Volleyball Academy will always strive to be second to none in terms of practice quality, time and value.
I invite you to compare our coach's credentials, practice time per $ spent, our actual teams' past and actual seasons videos and results on this website but more importantly to watch your child's red cheeks and smiley faces after an hour and a half of practice. I am confident that you will find our Academy to be your first and most likely your one and only Volleyball home.
If you wish to see your young athlete experience our academy first hand? Don't hesitate! Come along for a free practice session. Just email me for availability/booking: email@example.com
