On Saturday, Oct. 23rd, we will be offering tryouts to fill a handful of remaining spots on our 11U, 12U and 13U travel teams for the 2021-22 season. Great opportunity for those that are discovering travel volleyball now during their middle school seasons! Click HERE to register.
This upcoming season will see the club grow once again. Our on-court success and number of teams and outstanding coaches continues to rise as we enter Year 5 and our first year in our NEW FACILITY!
With four courts and a 2,500 sq ft Performance & Strength area, we are doing our best to create the level of training and resources that we were able to offer our college athletes for over 20 years. Jacksonville Skyline is the ONLY club in Jacksonville with 100% CONTROL over their own facility. No distractions. No unwanted noise. Just a great place to train volleyball! Come be a part of something special and growing!
Our extremely popular Club Prep Academy is back for two different 6-session segments. Designed for younger athletes just starting in the sport as well as those that are between the “beginning” and “intermediate” levels, Club Prep is a great place to learn or strengthen your fundamental volleyball skills.
This program fills up FAST, so be sure to get registered for one or both as soon as you can before it fills up. All training has moved to our permanent home at Jax Skyline Sports. Our new 4-court facility is located conveniently in the middle of Jacksonville. We are easily accessible from all directions and just minutes off of I-95 and Butler Blvd.

Fall Mini Club season is here!! This very affordable 10-week season is PERFECT for middle school players to supplement their training and also for beginning players need to the sport. Practice twice per week and 2-3 tournaments. All participants will be placed on a team- there is no tryout process. Click HERE for more information and to register.
The tryouts times and dates for the 2021-22 travel season have been finalized. Due to the early nature of tryouts this year and the timing being so close to the 4th of July weekend, Jacksonville Skyline will be offering two separate tryout dates for interested athletes. ATHLETES NEED NOT ATTEND BOTH TRYOUTS. HOWEVER, NEW ATHLETES TO THE CLUB ARE ENCOURAGED TO GET IN FRONT OF OUR STAFF BOTH DATES, IF POSSIBLE.
“As we transition into the new facility and as our teams continue to do better and better on the regional and national stages, we anticipate that the club will continue to grow,” said Co-Director Hugh Hernesman. “We’ve got an incredible staff and the Master Training concept that Skyline incorporates is showing some impressive results with our teams and individual athletes. The new facility will only enhance our teams’ success, as we add four courts and a 2,500 square-foot ‘in-house’ Performance & Strength area. With that, joining our staff is our Performance & Strength Coach- Brandon Wright- who will be working with our athletes along with his staff.”
What a weekend in Daytona Beach it was for Jax Skyline at the FC Power Championships!! While we were dealing with some sick and injured athletes, our teams held their own. Congrats to 14 Royal on a 2nd place finish in Open…as well as 14 Black (1st in Silver), 13 Royal (1st in Bronze) and 12 Royal (1st in Silver)! Ready for Nationals in just a few weeks!
The 14 Royal team played this past weekend at the Northern Lights Qualifier in Omaha, Nebraska and took home the club’s 1st ever bid to play in the USA Volleyball Girls Junior National Championship! Playing in the USA Division, 14 Royal dropped only one match (on Day 2) and went undefeated on Sunday- winning 4 straight matches to win the championship and earn the gold ball.
JACKSONVILLE, FL, 1/19/21— Jacksonville Skyline has finalized a lease for a full-time volleyball and training facility to open in the summer of 2021. “This is a game changer for our club,” said Co-Owner Hugh Hernesman. “Since we started Jacksonville Skyline in July of 2017 our goal has been to provide the very best for our athletes and their families. This gives us a full-time home that we can call our own.”
The 20,280 square foot facility will have space for 4 training courts and a 2,500 square foot performance and strength room. Additionally, there will be over 3,500 square feet of office space for coaches offices, a conference room, a Pro Shop, concessions and restrooms. It is located at 7022 AC Skinner Parkway- right in the middle of Jacksonville and conveniently accessible from the Jacksonville, Yulee/Fernandina, Orange Park and St. John’s County areas.
“Our club has grown tremendously in the past 3½ years. We started with 3 travel teams and are currently at 12 teams for the 2020-21 travel season,” said Hernesman. “It has been exciting to watch our athletes develop over the past three seasons and we have welcomed in over 70 families to our Skyline Family this club season alone. With this influx of families, we have also seen a large addition of some of the most talented and potential-rich athletes in Jacksonville. We look forward to serving our members in an even more efficient way and with additional training options.”
A general contractor will be selected in the coming days to work on the project. A capital campaign has been established to assist with the one-time construction and equipment expenses. You can learn more about how to donate to this project and Jacksonville Skyline- a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization- by emailing info@JaxSkyline.com.
HUGE NEWS! Coach Price from Florida State will be coming to Skyline for more training for our Jacksonville volleyball community!! There is no other club that can offer this type of access to high level coaches.
OPEN TO ALL ATHLETES- whether you play for Skyline or not. Unfortunately, due to NCAA Division I Dead Period rules, we are only able to offer these clinics to those that are enrolled in 8th grade or younger. Registration for Skyline athletes has already opened up and non-Skyline athletes begins today!
Find yourself a club where ALL players receive high-level training! At Jax Skyline, we implement a “Master Training” philosophy, where our Co-Directors- Hugh and Steph Hernesman- are leading the skill training for every athlete. Veteran coaches with 40+ years at the collegiate level combined, the Hernesman’s have prioritized a common training philosophy within the club. This is drawn upon their experience in learning from some of the best coaches from the highest levels of volleyball in the country!
