Volley Ball
The Field of Dreams Academy and Volley GEMS, Inc. have developed a strategic relationship as part of our mission to increase competitive student athletes' participation in non-traditional sports.

Volley GEMS, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) non-profit volleyball club designed for young inner-city girls in the Atlanta, Georgia area beginning at age 6. Volley GEMS was established to give elementary & middle school girls an early start on learning the fundamental skills and techniques of volleyball.

Volley GEMS, Inc. is also designed to connect young girls with responsible caring coaches who also serve as role models and mentors dedicated to helping the girls value themselves, and achieve their full potential. Our coaches share their wisdom and experiences with our players to help them overcome fears and obstacles they may experience, on and off the court. Our goal is to assist as many of the girls as possible to attend college and to achieve success in life aided by the lessons learned and resources gained through Volley GEMS.


To enhance the educational experiences and opportunities of young inner-city girls through competitive volleyball.

What We Do:

  1. 1. Provide an opportunity for young inner-city girls to learn the basic techniques and fundamentals of competitive volleyball.
  2. 2. Enhance academic success and the potential for college scholarships by instilling in young inner-city girls the positive values and skills acquired through a vigorous, yet nurturing athletic program.
  3. 3. Enable post-college and high school volleyball players to experience the opportunity of serving as mentors/coaches to young inner-city girls.
