This program was previously offered through VolleyGirls and taught by Hurricanes coaches. The migration of the program to within the club environment is a natural step for athletes in grades 5 or 6 wanting to take their game to the next level from the VolleyGirls fun environment to a more competitive level. 

What is the Hurricanes Volleyball Academy?

The Academy is a development program for Grade 5/6 female athletes who aspire to be leaders on their school volleyball teams and want the opportunity to learn the necessary skills to eventually play at the club level. Participants will have 1 practice per week with Hurricanes coaches that will include 75-90 minutes of skill development and 15-30 minutes of game play that will apply these skills. During game play, participants will gain a better understanding of offensive and defensive transitioning alongside court positioning. The intent of the Academy is to prepare young athletes to eventually play at the club level.  Last year, almost half the athletes on our current 12U Hurricanes team came from the Academy while some even found homes on our 13U teams.
