Boys Volleyball 12U

The Boys’ volleyball program at BVA Lions is designed for athletes and families who aim to train and compete at an elite level. We customize our tournament schedules based on each team and age group to guarantee optimal competitive exposure.

All athletes who secure a spot in our Elite club program are expected to compete in prestigious tournaments such as the USAV National Championship (if qualified), the AAU National Championships, or the ASICS National Championships at the end of the season. 

This commitment is an integral part of the BVA Lions experience.

Our academy is a small, high-energy environment where talent is nurtured and competitive spirits are welcome. We offer our athletes elite-level training and the chance to participate in the most challenging tournaments. 

But it’s more than just about playing games; at BVA Lions, we emphasize a holistic approach to player development.
