TEAM

Much of what makes up our club is our tremendous coaching staff. Our coaches are skilled volleyball players with years of coaching and playing time. There is more to being a good coach than just an extensive knowledge of the game – you also have to be able to teach the players how to effectively identify and work towards goals.  We have very high standards for our staff to ensure that your daughters and sons are being taught good life lessons both in and out of the competition. 

 

Our coaching staff follows the rules and guidelines set forth by USA Volleyball. They believe, "Any player who enters a volleyball program has the right to expect quality coaching and instruction." With having our coaches certified by USA Volleyball and the Garden Empire Volleyball Association (our regions governing body - GEVA) we ensure that the style of coaching we provide to our players is that of USA Volleyball standards.
