MVA offers competitive teams to players that want to excel in the sport of volleyball. MVA forms teams that fit various levels of commitment and competition. Athletes who are placed on a competitive team will train multiple times per week and compete versus teams from other clubs in various tournaments through out the winter and spring seasons. MVA provides three different levels of competitive teams because we understand that everyone needs different time and/or financial commitments (see below). Athletes who wish to participate in the competitive program must attend a tryout for their appropriate age group and will be selected for a team based on their skill performance and athletic potential.


MVA hosts tryouts every year to select new players for our competitive teams. 

NEW for the 2021 Season!!!
