Chicago's Leading Volleyball Club

Tryout Information now posted under Tryout Page

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, thus having no more than 3 teams per age level. 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.

In just 3 years, Michio has gained tremendous respect nationally and is ranked one of the top clubs in the state of Illinois. Michio Chicago VBA qualified 6 of its teams for the USAV Junior National Championship in 2013 and won the USAV National Championship in 2012 in the 15 Open division.

Michio Chicago VBA draws players from many different schools including Andrew, Bolingbrook, Chicago Christian, Crown Point, DeLaSalle, Fenwick, Immaculate Conception, Homewood-Flossmoor, Jones, Latin School of Chicago, Lemont, Lincoln-Way East, Lincoln-Way North, Lindblom, Lyons Township, Marian, Marist, Mother McAuley, Munster, Oak Forest,  Oak Lawn, Oak Park River Forest, Providence,  Richards, Sandburg, Shephard, St. Ignatius, Tinley Park, U of C Lab School, and Valparaiso,
