PORT ST LUCIE, FL.- The National Volleyball League (NVL) is expanding their indoor volleyball program this 2015-16 season. The NVL Academy teams will coincide with NVL’s current beach volleyball initiatives and will be based on Florida’s Treasure Coast at Club Med Academies in Port St. Lucie.
This increased focus into indoor volleyball comes as Club Med NVL Volleyball Academies’ director and NVL founder, Albert Hannemann, increase their efforts to develop the complete volleyball player. By combining elite indoor and beach volleyball training, and collaborating with the most experienced professional coaches, trainers, nutritionists and sports psychologists: NVL Academy hopes to become the ultimate training volleyball program in South Florida.
“Our goal is to build the perfect athlete on and off the court. At our Academy we focus on making sure our kids have a great experience in the best possible environment to help them find their full potential,” said Hannemann. “We had so much success in our first year that we have had overwhelming requests to grow our programs so we have committed to offering more opportunities for kids of all age groups.”
Long time successful Jensen Beach head volleyball coach and NVL Academy indoor coach Mike Sawtelle stated, “Sand volleyball is quickly becoming a popular sport in South Florida and around the country. With over 200 colleges offering scholarships for beach volleyball in 2016, I felt it was critical that us high school coaches start developing their players in both sand and hard court. NVL has a tremendous beach volleyball facility and I felt that our local players could have the best of both worlds without leaving their own back yard.”
The NVL Academy’s goal is to provide girls, ages 10-18, the opportunity to train and compete at the highest level in South Florida by competing on the USAV and AAU indoor club circuit and at the Club Med NVL beach volleyball academy year round. Beyond the circuit and school, the NVL Academy looks to provide opportunities to players of all ages and levels to explore and develop their volleyball skills through camps, clinics, tournaments, and private lessons for both indoor and beach enthusiasts.
Tryouts for NVL’s Indoor Academy will be held on Saturday August 22nd at Jensen Beach High School: 2875 NW Goldenrod Rd. Jensen Beach, FL 35957.
