Training at NAVC & Tentative Practice & Tournament Schedules

NAVC West offers teams for girls ages 10-18. 

The team offering has been updated as of September 19, 2018.  We have made the decisoin based on feedback from those who played at NAVC and prospective families that we needed to offer levels of teams that allowed players to focus on academics as well as volleyball.  The teams we offer are very similar to our offering in the 2016-17 season.  

We have also received a generous financial donation through Pro Volley allowing NAVC to reduce cost of our teams.  The donation from Pro Volley and the new level of teams offering have allowed NAVC to reduce cost for families substantially.  The new Player Fee schedules will be posted on Friday September 21st at latest Saturday Sept 22nd.

  • NAVC, founded in 1993 is the longest running junior girls volleyball club in meto Atlanta.  We are a family friendly organization that offers a rigorous training program as well as our NAVC Serves community service program and we have a lot of fun.  We understand the need of balance between our rigorous trainng and making sure that the girls love the game of volleyball.  We want all of them to remember their club volleyball experience as a time when they became a better player but more importantly when they learned life lessons and made life long friends whom they had a lot of fun with during their volleyball career at NAVC.
