Our program is designed to prepare our athletes to advance to the next level both mentally and technically.
Our programs instill and continue concepts of: autonomy, mental requirements for the next level, technical and tactical demands of a more advanced game.

“Development Team” Playing Time
Our club teams are created to develop the young player. This may be their first time playing volleyball. Learning basic skills while enjoying the sport is emphasized. Playing time and position are balanced between each player’s need to learn a skill or position and that player’s ability to contribute to winning. This allows for every player to play part of the every tournament, although play time is not equally distributed. Competition provides the context for players to learn and develop. Players who show a poor attendance recorded should only expect to play in positions with an amount of playing time that benefits the team, not the individual.

*Performance-Based ” Playing Time
These teams are nationally competitive and operate according to the rules of performance-based playing time. The “Performanced-Based” coaching guideline requires that players be fully committed to attending all practices and tournaments while adhering to all team and club rules. The athletes’ performance and attitude on and off the court will determine their play time in tournaments. The evaluation of player performance for the determination of playtime, as well as team strategy decisions, is entirely up to the discretion of the coaching staff. These guidelines are used to keep teams nationally competitive and to achieve team goals. Coaches will provide a fair and impartial environment for each player to earn playing time. Coaches will not discuss playing time as it relates to other players, and will not discuss strategy and techniques with any parent or player.
Uniforms are included in tuition
They include: Warm Ups, 2 jerseys, 1 practice shirt, backpack, socks, whistle and lanyard.
