Team History

The history of the AVHS volleyball program begins in 1976 with the opening of Apple Valley High School. Walt Weaver was the first coach. He served in that capacity for thirty years and was inducted into the Minnesota Volleyball Coaches Association Hall of Fame in 1996. Long-time assistant coach and equipment manager, Jeff Groves, is also a member of the MNVBCA  Hall of Fame; he was inducted in 2012.
