The Field of Dreams Academy has developed a strategic relationship with the USA Volleyball Association and the Junior Volleyball Association as part of our mission to increase competitive student athletes’ participation in non-traditional sports.
As a non-profit organization, we are committed to introducing the sport of volleyball to young inner-city girls in the Atlanta, Georgia area beginning at age 6. Our focus is on elementary & middle school girls, which gives them an early start on learning the fundamental skills and techniques of volleyball.
The will to win is important, but the will to prepare is vital.

What We Do:
1. Provide an opportunity for young inner-city girls to learn the basic techniques and fundamentals of competitive volleyball.
2. Enhance academic success and the potential for college scholarships by instilling in young inner-city girls the positive values and skills acquired through a vigorous, yet nurturing athletic program.
3. Enable post-college and high school volleyball players to experience the opportunity of serving as mentors/coaches to young inner-city girls.
