Please contact us at advancedapproach@comcast.net or 724-242-0440 if you are interested in coaching with Advanced Approach

Advanced Approach is looking for enthusiastic, dedicated, hard working coaches who have a passion for the game for the upcoming USAV juniors season. Experience is unnecessary, as we train our coaches. Enthusiasm, morals, ethics, a love of the game, a desire to learn, and a desire to improve as a coach and a person are all required traits.

Our club is headquartered in Pittsburgh, PA. We draw athletes from western PA, eastern OH, and northern WV. We will practice in and around Pittsburgh, PA. We are fielding teams in the following age groups for girls (National and Regional levels): 10&Under, 11&Under, 12&Under, 13&Under, 14&Under, 15&Under, 16&Under, 17&Under, and 18&Under.

Coaches of younger teams (10,11,12,13,14) will practice approximately 2 times per week and attend approximately 4 weekend tournaments. Coaches of older teams (15,16,17,18) will practice approximately 3 times per week and attend approximately 8 weekend tournaments (some overnight).

Contact the club with questions via e-mail at advancedapproach@comcast.net or by phone at 724-242-0440.
