A Message from Our Director
Hello, my name is Julie Myers-Dailey. I have grown up in Birmingham and very proud to still call Birmingham my home. I played at Bush Middle School, Ramsay High School and UAB. I have been coaching Junior Olympic Volleyball in Birmingham for over 30 years now. My college coach Brenda Williams from UAB encouraged us to coach while we were college players and it became one of the best experiences of my life and has become a lifelong passion.
I began Team Sting, now Southern Performance Volleyball Academy, in 2003 and initiated the process of making Birmingham a regional and national volleyball destination. We have amazing athletes here in our area. My desire, as well as our coaches, is to provide the most intense, fundamental and technical coaching in the southeast while helping develop these young ladies by competing against the hardest players around the country. As shown with hundreds of scholarships offered to our players, Southern Performance is dedicated to a high level of expectations. Southern Performance was the first club in the state of Alabama to receive a collegiate sand scholarship and most of our teams that play every summer receive National Qualifying bids.
Southern Performance has a steady flow of college coaches that come through our gym and that watch our players at tournaments all across the country. Although a college scholarship is the ultimate goal for many of our players, we are committed to building the best high school and middle school players in the area. Many of our players are All Metro Tournament Middle School Players, All County Middle School Players and All State, All Area, All Region and All Metro High School Players.
On the national indoor level, SPVB has won two AAU National Championships, the most recent in 2017. We are a club of integrity and solid foundational instructors with an enormous amount of experience. Our goal is to lead your daughter to love the game of volleyball while learning commitment, hard work, determination and leadership to be the best young lady they can be.
