  • 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.
  • Teams will be trained and will compete in competetive tournaments, this is not recreational volleyball program, we practice and attend tournaments to play at our highest level possible. All players on our teams including Metro teams are expected to attend each practice, position training, all tournaments and team activities for the length of the volleyball season.
