Attack Volleyball Club’s (AVC) philosophy is to provide a competitive, fun and learning environment for athletes who want to compete at a competitive level of volleyball in high school, club and eventually college. We strive to instill in our athletes the belief that competitiveness, hard work and fun can and should co-exist. We believe in positive attitude, leadership, athletic ability and continuous improvement. We encourage our players to learn the game of volleyball, compete at the highest level, develop a positive view of themselves, their teammates and their coaches and always maintain respect for the game of volleyball itself.

Attack Volleyball Club Memberships
ATTACK is a member of USA Volleyball and NCVA. ATTACK can participate in any tournament within California sanctioned by the NCVA and in any tournament nationwide that is sanctioned by USA Volleyball.

How does Attack Volleyball Club structure its coaching staff? 
ATTACK believes in a co-coaching philosophy, which enables our coaches to be able to provide their specific expertise to all of our players. Our co-coaching philosophy provides for the assistant coaches to be equal in responsibility and supervision so that they can both enhance the team with their individual talents while providing a united front in dealing with and coaching our players. We will also have our assistant coaches provide an additional level of expertise for our players. All of our coaches have played or coached at the collegiate level and/or have prior club level experience.

How long is the season and how many tournaments will Attack Volleyball Club participate in?
Tournament Season will begin in January 6, 2014 and run thru May 20, 2014. Click on Calendar for practice dates once teams are formed. For NCVA (Northern California Volleyball Association) information, member registration, tournaments, etc.) check out the premier league at the NCVA website:

We practice exclusively in the gymnasium at the College of Alameda, located at 555 Ralph Appezzato Memorial Pkwy., Alameda, CA 94501


Does every player get to play?
ATTACK uses college level rotations, which allow for substantial and consistent substitutions. ATTACK believes in giving every player an opportunity to play in every tournament as long as each player fulfills their obligation to the team, which includes practice and game attendance, a positive attitude, on time payments, enthusiasm and effort at all times. Playing time is not automatic or guaranteed and each player must earn her position.


Can I go to tournaments with my child?
Yes!! We encourage parents and family attendance at all tournaments. ATTACK encourages parents to help provide snacks and drinks for the players at the tournament sites. For travelling to local tournaments, parents will be responsible for providing transportation and meals for their daughter(s). When our team travels out of town, all players and coaches will travel as a team, stay together as a team and eat meals as a team.


What is your policy regarding parent involvement?
ATTACK encourages and welcomes parents to be involved and show the same level of commitment to the club as expected from the players. Getting your daughters to practices and tournaments on time, being supportive and upbeat as spectators for both wins and losses, helping with snacks, etc. is important to the success of any club and helps to make the club volleyball experience special. At the same time, helping your daughters understand the importance of following club rules and policies and allowing the coaches to do their jobs, make decisions and develop the team into a successful winning team, both on and off the court, is equally as important. If a concern ever arises regarding practice or game issues with your daughter, please make an appointment to meet with us at an appropriate time. Due to the nature of everyone's enthusiasm and emotions at tournaments, parents will not be allowed to discuss an issue immediately prior to or directly after any game or tournament. The club administrator or head coach will be more than happy to discuss any concerns or issues you may have at almost any time, other than at games or tournaments.
