Our Club

Advancement Academy (aka A2 or A-squared) is a youth volleyball program that was founded in 2012 to serve the Columbus and Central Ohio area.  A2 participates as a licensed member of the Ohio Valley Region (OVR) of USA Volleyball.  A2 practices out of a 6 court facility in Lewis Center called the A2 Sports Gardens. In 2019, we launched a new extension of our club called A2 East.  This club focuses on the same goals and philosophy as A2, but practices at TAD Sports in Granville. 

Additionally, the A2 Boys program is continuing to grow and in just a few short years has become one of the larger boys programs in the OVR. In 2020, we expanded the boys' program to include A2 West, which is based just outside Dayton.

Our Philosophy

Advancement Academy believes in motivating our athletes to use volleyball as a tool to develop healthy habits throughout all life experiences. Our staff knows that training our athletes goes beyond the court; we want our athletes to apply our training and guidance to their education, peer relationships, and all life decisions.

Our Mission

Advancement Academy will focus on developing athletes into well-rounded volleyball players as well as strong, young men and women. Our concentration will be on skill development, ball control, and mental toughness.
