BUFFALO VOLLEYBALL ACADEMY  

A Junior Olympic Volleyball Club in Western NY

About Us

BVA is a sanctioned WEVA regional club of USA Volleyball offering clinics and Jr Women's/Men's play.   Our goal is to give players the opportunity to develop their fundamental volleyball skills while emphasizing teamwork, personal responsibility, and team camaraderie.  The 2018-19 season is our 9th year as a club (and third to offer boys clinics with the Town of Hamburg), and we have consistently placed teams in the top 5 of our region over this span.  We are proud to be the most affordable and competitive club in WNY and our players are consistently given opportunities to play at either the Division II or III collegiate levels each of the past 6 years.

 

BVA's club practice season begins in mid-December and runs through the first week of May.  Our teams compete in local, regional, and national level tournaments along with open gyms, skill clinics, and weekly practices.  Practice sites include schools within the Hamburg School District and ECC South Campus.

 

Directed by Hamburg Girls Varsity Volleyball Coach John Crangle, experienced Head and Assistant coaches are assigned to support each team ranging in possible age groups from 14 and Under to 18 and Under teams. We are a NON-PROFIT organization, and all coaches volunteer their time to better girls volleyball in Western New York.  We are proud of our alumni that have gone on to play Division II or III Volleyball.  Please see our alumni page.
