Who We Are:

BVA is a sanctioned WEVA regional club of USA Volleyball offering clinics and Jr Women's/Men's play.   Our goal is to give players the opportunity to develop their fundamental volleyball skills while emphasizing teamwork, personal responsibility, and team camaraderie.  The 2020-21 season is our 11th year as a USA Volleyball affiliated club, and we have consistently placed teams in the top tier of our region over this span.  


About our Director:

Directed since our beginning by Hamburg Girls Varsity Volleyball Coach John Crangle, experienced Head and Assistant coaches are assigned to support each team ranging in possible age groups from 12-18 year old teams. We are a NON-PROFIT organization, and all coaches volunteer their time to better girls volleyball in Western New York.  Coach Crangle sat on the WEVA Board of Directors as a Junior rep for 6 years, and has led Hamburg to 5 Sectional Final appearances, 3 Section Titles, and a Buffalo News Top 5 ranking in each of his 10 coaching seasons in Hamburg.

Club Calendar:

BVA's club practice season typically begins in mid-December and runs through the first week of May.  Our teams compete in local, regional, and national level tournaments along with open gyms, skill clinics, and weekly practices.  Tournament play runs from January through early May.  Our practice sites include schools within the Hamburg School District and the Town of Hamburg's Youth and Recreation Center.  However, this 2020-2021 year our club season is scheduled to run from November-March, when the changed high school season is scheduled to begin.
