FAVA, provides high-level coaching and competition in girls’ Junior Olympic volleyball as well as regional competition. In 2015, we expanded to include a summer beach volleyball progam
Each year, we try to field teams in different age groups: 12s, 13s, 14s, 15s, 16s, 17s, and 18s. Our goal is to develop self-esteem and physical fitness in our community’s young women and to produce winning Junior Olympic volleyball teams.
FAVA Started as a semi-organized pair of teams in 1995, the association has now grown to field as many as nine teams in the 2009-10 season, with 89 girls on the rosters.
Club volleyball, or Junior Olympic volleyball as it’s sometimes called, is a chance for girls and boys ages 12 and up to play the sport year-round.
FAVA currently fields only girls teams, drawing players from Cumberland County and the surrounding areas.
The goal of the organization is two-fold: to provide players with an opportunity to play volleyball year-round, a system that Fields said has increased competition among area school teams; and to get local players exposed to college coaches for a chance to play volleyball beyond high school.
