All WAVE teams practice at the Fairgrounds Volleyball Center. The “Big White Tent” is located just west of I-5 near the San Diego Fairgrounds. Completed in 2003, the center was designed strictly for volleyball. With easy access, ample room around each court, high ceilings, and hundreds of volleyballs, the center is an ideal location for volleyball training. WAVE is located at the Fairgrounds Volleyball Center. The volleyball facility is easy to spot from I-5, it is the big white tent just west of the freeway and South of the Via De La Valle offramp in Del Mar.
What You Need to Know About WAVE Volleyball
We are a family-oriented club, and the goal of WAVE is to provide the finest possible volleyball experience to every athlete that is involved in our program – as a player, person, and student/athlete. To achieve that goal, we strive to maximize the individual skill level of every player, and then combine those players into the best possible team they can be. We stress development of fundamental skills as a player, learning to work together as a team, and personal habits that lead to success in any walk of life. The only way we can help each player reach their potential as a student/athlete is to assemble, what we believe, is one of the finest coaching staffs in the country. As a minimum requirement to be part of the WAVE staff, all of our coaches have excelled on the court at the college level and/or in the sand. In addition, numerous coaches have indoor and beach pro experience, NCAA Championship rings, Olympic medals, and have played for the USA National Team. We pride ourselves in being excellent teachers and good role models for aspiring student/athletes. We also take pride in providing a clean, safe, and healthy environment in our practice facility at the Fairgrounds Volleyball Center.
Outstanding teams are the result of fundamentally sound players in every facet of the game and great team chemistry. WAVE’s results from last season speak for themselves.
The Southern California Volleyball Association is the most competitive and deep region in the country, with over 1,200 teams in five divisions. In a testimonial to the quality of the players, families and the coaching staff at the WAVE, the club won the overall title in two out of five SCVA divisions in the 2011 season, WAVE 14 Katie and WAVE 16 Jeanne each won their respective divisions. In addition, WAVE 11 Tammy was the highest rated 11-year-old team, and WAVE 17 Brennan was the highest rated 17-year-old team. In essence, WAVE finished atop four of eight individual age groups in the SCVA, a remarkable achievement considering the depth of volleyball talent in Southern California
In addition to our success on the regional level, 8 WAVE teams qualified for the USA Volleyball Girl’s Junior National Championships held in Atlanta, Georgia. The club earned five Top 10 finishes, with WAVE 12 Casey bringing home a Bronze Medal. At the Volleyball Festival in Phoenix, WAVE 13 Abra won their division as well.
WAVE can only achieve such remarkable success by attracting the best student/athletes from throughout San Diego County. We are searching for players who want to excel on the volleyball court and classroom as well, with the goal of eventually competing at the collegiate level. We highly encourage any player who desires to compete at the highest level of club volleyball to come by and check out our club!
