Our program is built on a foundation of mind, body and soul.

Focusing on the student-athletes’ minds, academics in the classroom is a priority when playing a school sport. We make it part of the mission to help build a well-rounded female athlete who can learn life lessons, as well as volleyball skills throughout their time in the program. The bodies of our female athletes are equally important when it comes to training; therefore, all student-athletes participate in the strength and conditioning program and work with Lipscomb Academy’s nutritionist. And last the soul - the volleyball program spends time in devotionals, reflecting on life, building relationships and giving the student-athletes a place to grow spiritually, emotionally and physically. The Lipscomb Academy Volleyball Program competes in the TSSAA Division II AA Central Region.

Human Performance Weight Room

With the renovation of the human performance weight room located at the Upper School, the enhanced performance center is accessible now for the entire student body. The renovations have expedited our ability to install methodologies based around teaching movement, core strength and proper lifting techniques. Sixteen racks, numerous dumbbell and kettlebell racks and increased space give the athletics program the necessary tools to teach effectively.
