What is the Academy?

Upward Stars volleyball offers the most comprehensive volleyball and athletic training for young players - both male and female.

  • Prep Academy (grades 1st - 4th)
    • We use a lighter ball, smaller court segments and lower nets.
    • The program’s focal point is developing agility, hand eye coordination, body movement, and ball control work.
    • Team play is incorporated with motor learning, skill development, and court movement.
    • More game play situations are introduced. 
  • Youth Academy (grades 5th - 8th)
    • We provide 3 levels of participation and training - beginner, intermediate, and advanced. 
    • Each group is leveled by experience in the game and led out accordingly.
    • Beginner - We use a lighter ball, smaller court segments and lower nets. The program’s focal point is fun and enjoyment; at the same time developing agility, hand eye coordination, body movement and ball control work. Team play is incorporated with motor learning and skill development. 
    • Intermediate - We continue to develop agility, hand eye coordination and court movement. More game play situations are introduced. This is a great way to hone skills or prepare for middle school or club tryouts
    • Advanced - For those who want to keep their skills sharp, cannot commit to playing club volleyball or just want additional training. Sessions will cover instruction-based drills then progress to competitive play where athletes will be divided into teams using a regular leather ball, on a standard court, with a regular height net. Competitive game play situations are the norm and rotations are introduced.

We really see the long-term growth when our players continue instruction past one academy and would encourage your athlete to train in multiple academies throughout the year. 

Each Academy features practices conducted by our proven staff and led by a master coach, tournaments for Prep and Academy participants against outside competition, and Stars gear.
