OUR CORE VALUES

OUR CORE VALUES

We believe that we have an educational program built on the fundamental skills of volleyball. The life lessons and values that we teach will be essential to a player’s development as an athlete, a student, and a person. We also believe “working hard” is a core value that goes into everything we teach and train.

  • There is inherent value in working hard.
  • Put winning in its proper place, its the result of working hard.
  • Create and retain a positive learning environment.

  • We believe in striving for success through player development.
  • We believe that coaches are a significant influence on the lives of our players; therefore, we exercise great care in selecting our coaching staff.   In addition to demonstrating excellence in volleyball, coaches must enjoy working with young players.
  • The club experience should be challenging, fun, and educational..
  • Each time an athlete takes the court, it is an opportunity to better themselves.
