of volleyball to the athletes in our community. 

  • The National Program: This program is for the athlete who has a strong desire to play volleyball in college. The athlete must be fully committed to making volleyball a number one priority over other activities. The members of our elite teams will travel out of state to National Qualifiers where they will compete against the top teams in thecountry. The players on our elite teams must have the desire, athleticism, and skill level required to compete with the strongest college prospects.
  • The State Program: This program is designed for the player who may also have an interest in playing volleyball in college. The athlete must be willing to make the sacrifices necessary for her/his progress and that of the team. While not quite as intense as the Elite Program, these teams are still very competitive. 
  • The Regional Program: The regional program will be offered for the beginner to intermediate volleyball player.  Athletes will receive training in the fundamentals of the game with a strong focus on game situations. The first three practices will be skills and drills only. We offer these programs for the young athletes who want to learn the basic fundamentals of volleyball. These athletes may have interest in playing on their middle school or high school team and may have some interest in playing in college.
