About 850 Elite Volleyball Academy

850 Elite Volleyball Academy is a competitive volleyball organization that strives to be the premier club in the Gulf Coast Region. We are the only facility designed and built for volleyball from Tallahassee to Mobile, AL. We have a 16,500 square feet indoor space with 4 indoor courts and 3 beach courts. Our facility is close to Eglin Air Force Base, within a 30-minute drive from the communities of Niceville, Ft. Walton Beach, Destin and Crestview and less than an hour away from the beaches of South Walton.

Our coaches are in the gym 7 days a week.

We are all volleyball, all the time, with programs including:

  • Indoor travel club teams for junior girls ages 12 to 18 years old
  • Beach volleyball
  • Grassroots programs for Elementary school kids, ages 7 to 12 years old
  • Private Lessons
  • Skill camps
  • Strength and Conditioning
  • Summer Camps
  • Fall Camps
We have 13 coaches who have more combined experience than any other club in the area. Most of our coaches have either played or coached at the college level, and some have competed, or coached, internationally.

We strive to teach the fundamentals of volleyball, through Gold Medal Squared, to maximize the potential of each of our athletes. We use the Gold Medal Squared system to teach consistent skills across all age levels. GMS is the same system used by the U.S. Olympic Team and U.S. National Team.
Our coaches and staff work with our players to assist in the college recruiting process and prep them for success at the next level.

ATTITUDE IS EVERYTHING – our goal is to train, encourage, and empower young student athletes at every level as they grow!
