Club Philosophy

Club Ace Long Island is a USA Volleyball affiliated junior developmental program for youth, ages seven to eighteen. We are dedicated to providing high quality training at all levels via our experienced and knowledgeable coaching staff. Our CALI athletes have the opportunity to train for and compete at local, regional and national levels. We proudly say that have been very successful at all levels of competition. 

It is our main goal to provide a solid foundation of fundamentals to enable participants to develop not only as players, but as young adults as well. This competitive athletic experience will enhance their social development and contribute to their future mental and physical health 

CALI strives to provide an environment that creates and instills such values as self-discipline, confidence, accountability, sportsmanship and team work. 


CALI Travel Program: Age 11 -18

Travel teams: Black, Blue, Red, Gold  

Our CALI Travel teams are designed for those athletes that have a desire to eventually play in college and for those that want the highest possible level of training and competition! The team head coaches (generally 2 coaches per team) are some of the best coaches in the northeast, and most of them are current and former college coaches, very successful high school coaches, or have played and coached the game at the highest levels. Our Travel teams practice 4 hours a week with their own court at Hofstra University; They will play in 7 to 9 tournaments during the season (of which 3 generally multi-day events with overnight travel involved) and the teams are among the best teams in the region across all age groups. Travel teams require a high level of dedication and commitment to be the best of the best!
