More About Us
AirBorne Volleyball is a Developmental Program that was started in August 2009 by Linda Irvine who serves as CEO. After coaching on the varsity level, Coach Irvine recognized the great need for kids to receive proper instruction in the sport. Many had participated in youth sports in their communities but had developed "bad form" that was hard to break. At ABV our goal is to teach proper form in a fun environment. We want to assist the local junior highs in "preparing" their future athletes.
In addition, it is our goal that the kids that come through our program will move on to compete on a Texas Diamonds Club Team for their next level of training and competition.
At Airborne Volleyball every participant will receive the same instruction and the coaches will help everyone advance at "their pace". Proper form of all skills is a must. In addition to form and skills work, there will be fun games played at every practice. Coaches will "build" on skills learned.
We have 3 levels of training based on age and skill level.
MINIS, Developmental & Elite.
MINIS- ( K5- 2nd ) 8 week Program
Developmental- ( 3rd-6th ) 10 week Session
Elite - ( 7th & 8th ) 12 week Session
* Boys programs all levels will begin in early 2024 when we move into our new gym The Core Sportsplex.
We currently offer spots for boys in our Minis program.
Our Programs & Sessions
AirBorne is a great place to start ( beginners are welcome! )
We offer 8, 10 & 12 week programs/ sessions for girls K5 thru 8th grade. (Boys K5-2nd grade are welcome in our Minis program!)
We will be working to add more boys programs in 2024.
Practices are geared toward the quick advancement of skills. Conditioning- core training and drills that will be seen on the junior high and club courts are taught. Our training is for the beginner and also those preparing for junior high, club try-outs and high school. We work on "progression" - once a skill is learned - we take it to the next level.
AirBorne is excited to offer a Mini's Program for girls and boys in K5, 1st and 2nd grade. This program is fun and fast paced! We work on motor skills, eye/hand coordination and the fundamentals of volleyball are taught all while having fun and introducing the game of volleyball to our youngest athletes.
Summer Camps, Competition Leagues, Position Camps and privates
Summer camps, position camps and private lessons offered to girls in 3rd-8th grade.
We have something for everyone!
Beginner camps, next level and elite training.
We also offer "competition leagues" each summer for 6th,7th & 8th graders. CL's are a great way to get in the gym and prepare for school or club try-outs. Must have prior training at AirBorne, a club or school team to join the competition league as it is competitive game play.
To provide youth the opportunity to learn the basic skills of volleyball (passing-setting-hitting-overhand serving) and then help them soar to new heights! Preparing young athletes for school and club teams. Helping each athlete reach their goals while teaching the importance of good sportsmanship-perseverance-and setting and reaching goals. Our desire is that every young person who comes to AirBorne Volleyball will not only take flight on the volleyball court but in life as well.
