Some of the best senior talent trains in the greater Cleveland area. With a handful of club options, some of the best U18 teams in the region hail from this area of the state. Here are two top teams that are a must see for volleyball enthusiasts.

AVC 18 Red

Academy Volleyball Cleveland has a terrific national-level reputation for training, competitiveness, and depth of talent. Their 18 Red squad features a roster full of committed athletes set to join some of the most respected programs at the DI and DII levels. A huge strength for this group will be in their ball control and defense as both Emmy Klika Emmy Klika 5'8" | DS/L Gilmour Academy | 2021 State OH (Pitt) and Hanna Bissler Hanna Bissler 5'9" | S NDCL | 2021 State OH (Miami, FL) provide great stability in these areas. Klika has good first step reaction and quickness while Bissler provides a terrific all-around skill set and at 5’9 has great length for a defensive type of role at the next level. Another area of depth is in the middle and on the right side as a corps of athletes will fill these positions with experience and versatility to score points from both positions and defend well at the net.
