What is the Academy?

 Upward Stars volleyball offers the most comprehensive volleyball and athletic training for young players.  

We currently have 3 different locations (Spartanburg, Gaffney, and Savannah, GA) and have academies all year long. We really see the long-term growth when our players continue instruction past one academy and would encourage your athlete to train in multiple academies throughout the year. Remember, our academy is for the beginner to players who play school and/or club ball (ages 7-14).  We provide 3 levels of participation and training- beginner, intermediate and advanced.  Each group is leveled by experience in the game and led out accordingly.

Each academy features 2 practices/week conducted by our proven staff and led by a master coach, one or two Saturday tournaments against outside competition and cool Stars gear.
