GCAA has offered volleyball to the Cleveland and surrounding communities since 2007. Each year we have grown in numbers and now have over 160 registered during both our Fall and Spring seasons. We currently have two age divisions, ages 9-11 and ages 12-14.
Mission: Our goal is to teach players the fundamentals of the game, to work on individual growth as a player, to teach teamwork and sportsmanship and to have a great time! Many of our players have goals of playing at higher levels and it is our goal to prepare them for it to the best of our ability.
During our Fall season we break into teams and have practices and games. During our spring season we offer Skills and Drills Clinics, 1 week of practices then games. We also have several visiting coaches from our local Middle and High school teams and some triangle area club volleyball coaches to instruct the players during our clinics.
Please like and follow our newly created Facebook page with weekly updates and our Sunday Clinic schedule: https://www.facebook.com/GCAA-Volleyball-2033217813578084/.
