What is GA-5? GA-5 is an elite girls’ Junior Olympic Volleyball Club that trains out of The Suwanee Sports Academy. The focus of the club is to train players to become whole players with the physical, emotional, and mental tools that will help them succeed on and off the court. The club consists of 12 teams for the 2008-2009 season, with each team comprised of ten to twelve players.
What is the relationship between GA-5 and A5 Pure Volleyball Club? GA-5 and A5 are two separate, competitive volleyball clubs who are aligned in the process of teaching and training female volleyball players. A5’s rise to the top of southern volleyball has happened in a relatively short time span (4 seasons). GA-5 seeks to utilize a similar business model and training methodology (both clubs are trained using VolleyPerformance) with the full support of A5.
The clubs consider themselves ‘sisters’ in their efforts to provide life lessons through the game of volleyball. By focusing on the process of providing each player and her family with a positive experience, GA-5 and A5 believe strongly that a successful product will be produced. Coaching methodology and resources will be shared between the two clubs in an effort to support growth of national caliber volleyball in the Metro Atlanta area. Both clubs will compete on a national level with travel schedules tailored to each team.
