The 35th annual Emerald City Classic was held this weekend with our SVA U14-1, U16-2 and U16-1 teams having a great showing.  Our U14 team was runner-up in the U14 club division as was the U16-2 team in the U16 club division, our U16-1 team made it to the semi-finals in the U16 open division.

This was a great accomplishment being that we are only in our first year as a full program. 

We are excited for the future of our athletes and for the continued growth and success of our program.

Welcome to Seattle Volleyball Academy – the newest premier, club volleyball program in the city of Seattle.


Founded in 2021 by Genne and Joe Baleto, we are humbled and excited by the growth and success of our program so far. Seattle Volleyball Academy teams compete both regionally and nationally. In addition to our Girls U12, U14, U15, U16 and U17 teams, we will offer a Boys U14 & Under team for the 2023-24 Season.


SVA players train with intention and learn firsthand what it takes to play at the collegiate level from coaches who have been there. Our players develop the technical skills, championship mindset and team connection needed to perform at an elite level. Strength/agility performance training, specialized instruction, nutrition lessons, yoga and community service opportunities round out the club experience and empower our players to become better athletes, teammates and all-around good humans.


We have partnered with SportsRecruits to give our high school student-athletes the additional tools and exposure to help guide them through their college recruiting process.


We also offer developmental teams/training to prepare our younger players for their middle school and high school teams.


Throughout the year, our dedicated coaches offer skills camps, clinics and private lessons. Our facility also hosts open gyms and rentals.


Seattle Volleyball Academy trains out of Go Time Athletics West Seattle – the only private indoor volleyball court in Seattle.



“To provide high-level coaching and foster the best possible learning environment. To teach our family of athletes the fundamentals of the game of volleyball and cultivate the desire in each to compete at the highest level. We want our athletes to develop the work ethic and discipline it takes to play volleyball, along with the importance of sportsmanship. We strive to create complete athletes on the court, and even better people off the court.”
