AVL Hoppers is a recognized 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization and is one of the fastest-growing adult volleyball leagues in Asheville. It is the only adult sports league dedicated to promoting upper-level competitive play, while fostering social integration and philanthropy within the community. Driven by a passion for volleyball as a catalyst for change, ALV Hoppers hosts three seasons of coed, grass-doubles volleyball (spring, summer and fall) where division winners donate their cash prizes to their local charity of choice. Our unique approach transforms competitive drive into a larger sense of purpose for social good—what we like to call Playing it Forward!  AVL Hoppers also hosts a free youth clinic for boys and girls that runs alongside our adult leagues, as well as a variety of year-round tournaments and mini-tournamentsJoin AVL Hoppers and be part of our passionate community working together to support each other on and off the court! 


Our purpose is to create an intentional space where our passion for volleyball brings positive change and lasting impact to our players and our community.


Our mission is to round out the growing volleyball scene by providing both a high-level of competitive play and an inclusive environment—empowering athletes to improve their volleyball skills and knowledge. 

The challenge is not for everyone, but everyone is welcome to take on the challenge.


Our vision is to be an example of excellence and inclusivity in our sports community and city. We want to inspire every one that plays with us to challenge themselves and discover their full potential, both through athletic development and a strong sense of community.
