A5 Boys Volleyball
We are very excited about the record turnout of athletes we had for our boys tryouts. We had over 45 players in the gym competing for spots on our 14's, 16's and 18's teams. Due to the large number of 14 and under players, we are in the process of forming two teams at that age group. The 16's and 18's tryouts were extremely competitive and unfortunately we were not able to find roster spots for all the players, as we have done in the past. Commitment Night is behind us and now the pre-season training begins.
We are also proud to announce our first two college commits of the Class of 2018, Kyle Ferguson, who signed a National Letter of Intent to play for Nolan Albrecht at Belmont Abbey College outside of Charlotte, and Braden Boyle who will play for Chad Nelson at Emmanuel College. Congratulations Kyle and Braden!!
The 2017-2018 season is upon us. Great ready to work hard and have fun!

Boys Volleyball Frequently Asked Questions
What is the length of the boys’ volleyball season?
The boys’ season starts in mid-November and goes through the first week of July. We typically play in 6-8 tournaments and practice twice a week.
How many teams will A5 have this year?
We will have as many teams as we can field, based on the tryouts and interest.
What if I decide after the season starts that I want to play at A5?
We may consider a practice player role in which athletes will have no travel expense, but will participate fully in all practices and training. It’s possible that we may add teams during the season as interest grows.
What if I have never played competitive volleyball before?
Most players that have joined A5 do not have previous volleyball experience. Our strong coaching staff is dedicated to helping each player develop the skills to be successful.
What if I play other sports?
Many A5 players participate in other sports. We only ask that you inform your coaches in advance of any conflicts.
How much are the dues?
Player dues will be $1000 for the 2018 season, plus travel. Practice players will only pay $1000 and have no travel fees.
What are the opportunities to play in college?
A number of colleges around the south have recently added men’s volleyball as a varsity sport, including one in Georgia and several in North and South Carolina, in addition to the national powers like Penn State, UCLA, Ohio State and Pepperdine. There were over 500 college commitments from the Class of 2017.
