OTHER PROGRAMS OFFERED BY ATOWN:
Clinics: April to October
A-Town offers an Hr Clinic once a week to help players practice basic skills and court knowledge. These clinics allow the player to keep practicing their skills and lock in the muscle memory movements. We review each skill and teach outdoor volleyball differences. This is an OUTDOOR GRASS program. 2 groups are offered; Beginner and Advanced. Normally our beginner group consists of mostly 8 to 11 years who have never played before or have just been introduced to volleyball. Our Advanced group ranges in age from 12 to 16 years and the players have basic skills but want to be pushed to the next level and get reps. Clinics are also available for your school, club or group of girls. Upon request clinics can be booked in your area. Email Angela at atownvb@yahoo.

OUTDOOR TOURNAMENTS: Sign up under the "Tournament" Page and read more about The World of Outdoor Volleyball!
INDOOR TOURNAMENTS: The Friendship tournaments are for club teams or groups of girls that would like to play together. Teams can sign up for any of our Indoor Friendship tournaments and come play against our AVA non-travel teams from November to March. Last year we had a group of girls who formed their own team called "The Red Flames". These girls came to all 4 of our indoor tournaments. These tournaments are always scheduled for Saturdays! Below are more details about our Friendship tournaments and how you can get involved.
Please fill out the Player Registration form (located under "Important Forms") for Open House. If the season has already started you will be contacted by Angela for day and time for the placement evaluation. Placements and practices will be held at the Anderson Civic Center, unless specified. Players can join AVA at anytime during the program, however based on the training program the players are building levels of physical fitness, body awareness, court knowledge, and more during each week of the program; so players may start with a "Quick start" program to get them up to speed before we assign them to a team. You and your child may need to schedule an appointment with Angela to get caught up based on when you start the program. Players receive a packet of information during the 5 month Non-Travel program to help transition them to the next level of volleyball; both for physical skill and mental awareness.
This year we have changed some of our programing. We evaluate all players for the first three weeks of the season (November) to focus on proper skills, muscle memory, and get players up to speed with core strength and conditioning. Then, a month before the first tournament players will be assigned teams. After each tournament the players are re-evaluated and moved based on skill and court awareness; Please understand MOST players will remain on the same team all season. Only 2% of the total players will advance aggressively to be able to move to the next level within our 5 months season. We have found because all the players are interacting during the core & skill session there is a smooth transition from team to team when players have been moved in the past. Players are placed on teams based on many different factors. If you have questions please ask.
All players are required to fill out registration for an provide placement fee for a 2-day trial. This includes AVA gear and evaluation! Anytime with-in this trial the player can finish the commitment form and make payment for the Academy season.

FRIENDSHIP TOURNAMENT "GUEST TEAM" REGISTRATION:
The Friendship Tournaments are offered to other clubs and even a group of girls wanting to put together a team! AVA holds the Friendship Tournaments to offer a tournament setting for the Academy with no travel involved. We like to offer outside teams to come and join the fun to help us give all the girls involved a solid environment to play locally and continue to grow on the court. ANYONE can come from ages 8 to 18 years old. We had a great group of girls from Pickens during the 2013/14 season who attended all of our Friendship Tournaments. They were a groups of 7 girls who wanted to play and enjoy the sport while had shirts made and became "The Red Flames". They had one of the parents volunteer as their coach and they did very well in all of our tournaments. We like to think outside the box at AVA and this group of young ladies helped us do that.
