About Orlando Tampa Volleyball Academy
Orlando Tampa Volleyball Academy is a volleyball club that provides serious athletes the opportunity to train and compete in the sport of volleyball at the highest level.
In September 2015, Orlando Volleyball Academy (OVA) and Tampa Bay Volleyball Academy (TBVA) merged their nationally successful volleyball clubs to create the largest volleyball club in the United States.
In August 2017, OTVA added two additional prominent clubs: Tampa Elite in the Tampa Bay area and Wave in the Bradenton/Sarasota area. In August 2018, OTVA added No Fear and MOVA in Jacksonville and Sideout in Palm Beach.
During the 2018-2019 season, the club had approximately 125 teams and 1,300 players. OTVA qualified 25 teams to the USAV National Championship – the most ever by a club in USAV history. OTVA operates eight facilities in Orlando, Longwood, Oviedo, Tampa, Sarasota, Jacksonville and Palm Beach. The goal of the combined club is to provide the finest coaching and training available in the country, whether it be for elite players or beginners. During its 22 seasons, the club has won 37 National Championships, the most of any club in Florida.
To date, 400 members of the club have moved on to play in college. In 2019, approximately 40 members will graduate and begin playing in college this fall.
