VISION Youth Academy

Athlete Instruction

Whereas most teams in the VISION Premier League are coached by parent coaches, the VISION Youth Academy involves instructors running the training sessions.

Parent coaches are still required to bench coach and are asked to assist instructors during practices. 

All instructors undergo training  with VISION Elite on the unique techniques the club uses to train young athletes.

Youth Academy Venues

There are three venues around the city which offers the VISION Youth Academy. These are:

1- Monday evening from 7-9:00pm at River Heights School, 1350 Grosvenor.

2- Tuesday evening from 6-8:00pm at Dalhousie School, 262 Dalhousie Dr.

3- Friday evening from 6-8:00pm at Munroe School, 405 Munroe Ave.

How to Join

The VISION Youth Academy is part of our VISION Premier League. Although there are no tryouts to join the VISION Youth Academy, resources are limited and participation must be controlled so as to properly accommodate every athlete who registers and ensure each venue has the numbers of participants that are manageable. 

As a result, we ask every athlete attend our Premier League Evaluation where they will be separated into groups according to the training venue they would like to join. We would recommend athletes attend early evaluations to ensure they make it into the venue they would prefer.

Live Life... Play Volleyball

The vision coaching was the best I have ever had! All the coaches were very willing to give you great advice! Playing with Vision has been the best time for me to improve. - A.E.

I learned a lot this season thanks to the help of my coaches. I couldn’t have asked for a better team because I truly made best friends on this team! - K.B.

I’m glad to have had Vision Elite Volleyball as my first ever volleyball club. Everyone at the club was nice, and patient when learning new skills. The practices were informative as well. - C.D.

I really like the coaching style of the coach, he is very honest and I believe that that is the best way for me, and the whole team to learn. - C.T.
