Founded in 1992, the GCVA is the LARGEST outdoor volleyball association on the Gulf coast. We have also been rated the #1 outdoor volleyball organization by Outdoor Volleyball USA. The GCVA has been producing Outdoor volleyball events in the TexasGulfCoast area for 32 years. Some of the top talent outdoors, as well as indoors, has participated in our Tournaments/Leagues. Almost every club/Middle/High School and College coach in the area has played/came to our outdoor events. A lot of indoor players got their start in volleyball at our outdoor tournaments and still participate throughout the year. Talk to anyone involved in volleyball and they know about GCVA and our excellent reputation for producing a top quality volleyball program.
Junor Beach Team Program: GCVA was the first (In Texas) , oldest and Best Beach Team program in the AREA. GCVA had the 8th ranked Junior Beach (BVCA CLUB TEAM) program in 2022 Season. All our 2022 Beach Team players received offers to play in college. We offer a National Team year around training along with Seasonal Beach Team training. We take players from any club to participate in our Beach Team Programs. We participare un USA Volleyball (Hosting the first even USAV Junior Beach National Qualifier), AVPA, BVNE and BVCA Club Team programs.
The GCVA started our indoor program for the 2005/2006 USAV volleyball season. We are the 2nd oldest INDOOR Club in the area behind South Shore Juniors. GCVA Juniors is a Clear Lake based indoor volleyball club for Girls ages 8 through 18 years of age. Our goal is to offer a cost efficient volleyball program in the clear lake area to help area youth become the best volleyball players they can be. Our first year as a indoor volleyball club we had 7 teams (We only expected 2). We have had up to 22 club teams and 9 little spiker teams in the past. However after COV we lost a lot of our gym space and at this time we only have room for 18 teams total, 10 club and 8 little spiker teams.
We select our coaches, not only for their desire to win, but their desire to TEACH. Our coaching staff’s goal is to help someone become the best volleyball player they can be. The coaches, we select, are not worried about the players making the coach look good. Our coaches are only concerned with helping their players develop the desire to be the best player possible. Our coaches love the game of volleyball and will do anything to help the player become better in all aspects of the game. All our current coaches also still play volleyball indoors and out.
All Teams will practice twice a week plus and drill/training sessions throughout the year. Their season will begin in November and conclude in Late April or early May. Our LITTLE SPIKER program for girls 2nd - 6th grade runs two sessions in this time frame. Little Spikers practice twice a week for 12 weeks
The GCVA Girls Junior Club is for GIRLS 18’s and under. For 2022/2023, depending on available gym time we are looking to field teams in the following age groups:
Girls 8-11 (Little Spiker Program)
Girls of all ages are welcome to join the club, so far youngest is 8. We will form as many teams as we can, Players can always play up in age, but not down in age.
