Southern Illinois Volleyball Academy
The SIVBA is a new premier volleyball academy in the Southern Illinois region that provides opportunities at both the elite and developmental levels. In partnership with Jaime Clark Verbeck and the elite Legends soccer program, Southern Illinois will now offer similar programming, training opportunities, and regional/national travel opportunities to enhance the quality of volleyball in our area. We are excited to open this new academy, but we need the help of our parents, local businesses, and our Southern Illinois community to get the word out to our talented young athletes. Under the leadership of Reggie Bateman, Johanna Mandrell, and Jessica Whitehead, SIVBA is pulling together coaches from their pre-existing clubs to create a united academy. This merge will serve to develop stronger fundamentals in the developmental program and strengthen the resources to draw a larger pool of experienced players in order to create a truly elite volleyball program for those players ready to compete at the regional and national level.
