Chicago's Leading Volleyball Club


Michio Chicago Volleyball Academy has 4 core principles: integrity, teamwork, discipline and dedication.

Our mission is to provide our players and coaches with the highest level of mentoring, both on and off the court . We believe that a small family atmosphere is critical. We know that it takes a collaborative effort from players, parents, and coaches to make this an unique experience for all involved. Our passionate and enthusiastic  staff includes college and high school coaches along with experienced players working constantly to develop their teams. All of us work together to ensure that all players in our club are receiving the best training possible. We also provide a staff to help guide and assist high school players in their college recruiting process. Every week, colleges are reaching out to our staff about our players and staff members have formed great relationships with these colleges.

In just 6 years, Michio has gained tremendous respect nationally and is ranked one of the top clubs in the state of Illinois and in the country. Michio Chicago VBA qualified many of its teams for the USAV Junior National Championship since its inception and won the USAV National Championship in 2012 in the 15 Open division.
