Edina Volleyball Association believes in promoting the sport of volleyball and promoting life skills through the sport of volleyball.
Among the many life skills learned through sports, and in participating with our club, are learning the values of prioritizing schedules, working together toward common goals, working hard for group and individual success, along with respect, honesty, and integrity toward others and themselves.
Participation in Junior Olympic volleyball requires a high level of commitment of time, body, and mind. We believe that this commitment has its place among priorities. Family, faith, and school (including school sports) come first, followed by volleyball.
Players and parents will be expected to make every effort to schedule their priorities so that they avoid as much conflict with their volleyball practice and playing commitment as possible.
EVBA is an Edina youth sports association formed to allow girls an opportunity to play and practice volleyball in a competitive environment. EVBA is equivalent to traveling volleyball, and is called “club” or “JO” (Junior Olympic) volleyball. EVBA plays USA Junior Olympic Volleyball and hosts a variety of teams, including grades 4-8.
Our coaching staff will emphasize the fundamental skills of serving, passing, hitting, blocking, and digging, as well as the court movements that are necessary to be successful in playing volleyball. Depending upon age and ability, we will train players for specialized positions such as setter, Libero, and the different hitting and defensive positions. In addition, we will train every player in team defensive and offensive systems.
We look forward to working with athletic, committed, eager to learn, and motivated players wanting to have fun playing volleyball and to play competitively, while still having a strong desire to improve their volleyball skills and knowledge of the game.
