MORE THAN A VOLLEYBALL CLUB

Fire Volleyball is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization on a mission to provide elite volleyball training to underserved female athletes in the Atlanta area. Our goal is to change lives and prepare young females for a successful adult life through the game of volleyball. Sports can open doors for so many opportunities, but financial barriers can often times prevent players from getting the training they need in order to play at the next level. We not only want to provide the training they need to play at the college level, we also want to equip them with the confidence, leadership skills, and life skills needed to be successful at that level and beyond.

WHAT WE DO & WHY WE DO IT

Elite Volleyball Training

We specialize in preparing young athletes for the next level. College and a college education is the goal for these high school student athletes. Combined with their work ethic and our volleyball training, we are excited to see what doors open for college volleyball scholarships!

Leadership Training

Learning how to be confident in who you are and serving others around you are vital characteristics of leaders. Many want to lead, but few want to serve. Serving others is a huge part of our leadership training. If a leader has the best interest of the team in mind, over any personal gain, then they can actually lead successfully.

Faith

Applying lessons in faith to sports goes hand in hand. If you want confidence, look to God who created you to the detail and never messes up. If you want to learn how to let go of your mistakes on the court, look to God who lets go of all of our mistakes because of Jesus. A player’s game takes off as they learn about God and apply their faith to their sport.

Education

Education takes priority over sports. Our goal is to prepare and equip each student athlete with the proper support, guidance, and knowledge to achieve a higher education. We understand that our goal of college volleyball scholarships cannot happen without the education preparation done in high school. It is our goal to prepare and equip our students to become future college graduates!
