Teams

Philosophy:

The staff at Revolution Pittsburgh is looking forward to the 2022 season. At Revolution Volleyball Club, our purpose it to build up the hearts, minds and bodies of young people. The length of a club volleyball season provides the opportunity for each individual athlete and team to demonstrate growth in a variety of areas (i.e., athleticism, sport-specific techniques, volleyball “IQ,” and intangibles). These four pillars serve as a design framework for both practice and competition. We are proud of the girls for their hard work and success for the past two years. We also appreciate and value the relationships that developed between the athletes, parents and staff. These are important elements of the overall program.

Facilities:

GRIT Athletix (2920 McKelvey Road, Pittsburgh, PA 15221) will be the host for all of our tryouts. Practice locations include GRIT Athletix, Baierl Center/North Allegheny HS (10375 Perry Highway, Wexford, PA 15090) and St. John’s Lutheran Church (311 Cumberland Road, Pittsburgh, PA 15237).
