CAV focuses on the personal and athletic development of our student-athletes, and creates a safe, positive, and effective learning environment in which student-athletes strive to achieve individual excellence within a team dynamic.

We view the volleyball court as our classroom, transformed to teach lessons of character, discipline, respect, responsibility, accountability, commitment, leadership, work ethic, teamwork, courage, integrity, communication, cooperation, the importance of sacrifice and sportsmanship.

Who Is CAV

The Charlottesville Area Volleyball Club is a not-for-profit, competitive, community-based volleyball club dedicated to helping players develop excellent volleyball skills, compete locally, regionally and nationally, and learn the life lessons sports offer, including fun and family bonding. It is our goal to inspire, encourage and improve every athletes’ level of play and empower them with the ability to creatively progress themselves for the rest of their lives.
