Ocean Volleyball Academy

Ocean Volleyball Academy is open to players of all ages and skills. Whether you are new to volleyball or you want a lesser commitment than being on a club team, we have a program that will work for you. This is a 10-week program consisting of a one-hour practice once a week. Practices will be from 4-5pm at Saint Barbara Greek Church, 2200 Church Road, in Toms River. Ocvbc registration opens on February 11th. The fee for this 10 week program is $155.00 for all ages and will cover the cost of the program and an OCVBC shirt.This registration is available on the Ocvbc registration tab after February 11th. If your player is only doing this program than they will only need the developmental membership with USA Volleyball (additional $25). If you have a current USA Membership then you will not need to do this part. USA membership for eight and under is free but still needs to register with USA at the link in the next sentence.  That separate membership is good till August 31, 2019 and good for all non club programs. It is available at https://www.geva.org/registration (bottom of page). You will need a copy of your paid receipt from USA or membership card and a paid OCVBC invoice for the Ocean Volleyball Academy at sign in the first day (two separate memberships). Ocvbc registration opens February 11th.

Please read the descriptions of each program to see where your child will fit best. Please contact oceancountyvolleyballclub@gmail.com with any questions.

Ocvbc reserves the right to combine sessions, using separate courts, if necessary. Your day could change, before the session starts based on class size. 

All clinics are overseen by CACC D2 Hall of Fame Coach Dan Williams and taught by Coach Sydney and our other Ocvbc club coaches.
