Playing travel volleyball is an avenue for athletes to receive advanced training and competition on local, regional and national stages.

Volleyball is becoming more and more competitive and players are picking up the sport at earlier ages. There is really no substitute to developing good fundamentals and game knowledge early on. Players who start early, 6th or 7th grade or even sooner, typically have a huge advantage over their peers who do not pick up the sport until later.

West Florida Waves teams are made up of athletes with strong skill level and the desire to train and push themselves to their highest level of play. Our coaches work hard each season to prepare our players for the next level. Whether that level is collegiate volleyball or their upcoming  school season, our club focus is to teach our players the fundamentals and develop each players skill in a highly competitive environment.

Purposeful Friendships
From team bonding to teamwork, Club volleyball brings together like-minded athletes with similar goals and helps form friendships that can last a lifetime.
Grow the Volleyball IQ
Athlete’s must grow past rote repetition and understand the game of volleyball and how to compete at a high level.
Challenge to Develop
In the right atmosphere, failure can be a great teacher – we challenge our athletes to push just beyond their current skill level so they can develop into the players they are meant to be.
Wide-Range Competition
Volleyball tournaments are some of the largest, most competitive and fun sporting events out there. Test yourself against athletes & teams from all over the region and possibly the nation.
