NASA Mission

Founded in 1990, the purpose of the North Alabama Spiker’s Association (NASA) Volleyball Club is to promote volleyball in the North Alabama area, to prepare our players for the next level of competition, and eventually to attract college recruiters. 

NASA will strive to develop, through intense training, the skills both physical and mental, to compete in volleyball at the collegiate level.  The Club will provide a positive, well-balanced competitive environment in which young women develop skills to be successful in volleyball as well as life endeavors. 

Additionally, through wholesome, competitive volleyball experiences, the club will develop young women emotionally, physically and spiritually to meet the challenges of life.  It is of the utmost importance to provide personalized training to each athlete so they have the opportunities for more playing time among their respective school teams.  NASA will do everything possible to obtain the maximum exposure to collegiate-level coaches to help our student athletes continue their volleyball careers as well as their education. 

The primary mission of NASA is to have a positive influence in the life of all of our players.
