We individualize realistic short-term performance goals for our players and encourage them to set their own. Long-term goals are the treasures to strive for, but it is the short-term goals which, when achieved, motivate and instill confidence and the desire to set and reach their next goal.

Volleyball is absolutely a team sport – unlike other team sports where 1 or 2 strong individuals may make the difference. In volleyball, every player and position is equally important for the team’s success.

​We play, we win or we lose as a united team. There are no individual, game-resulting, mistakes. We are not concerned with mistakes. If we practice and play our best and hardest and we make mistakes, we will take those mistakes all day long. Our athletes are encouraged to take risks and make mistakes at practice.

An athlete can’t make positive change and improve without making mistakes and having the freedom to try something new and different.

coach Dave's coaching philosophy

While winning at this level of competition and beyond is important for girls’ self-esteem, team morale and college recruiting efforts, it is not the primary directive of our coaching. Through our coaching style, winning simply becomes a natural by-product of disciplined athletes who practice, train and compete at their fullest effort, who are committed to themselves and each other as positive and supportive teammates, and most importantly, who have a lot of fun throughout it all.

We firmly believe that volleyball skills improve quicker through proper instructional practice, strength and agility conditioning, and playing the game. Our practices and conditioning give our players the required thousands of valuable reps and training to ensure improvement in their skills and fitness. Every athlete will be provided tournament-playing time. Many athletes will play as close to as many matches in just one multi-day tournament as they would during an entire high school season.

“I’ve missed more than 9000 shots in my career.

 I’ve lost almost 300 games.

26 times, I’ve been trusted to take the game winning shot and missed.

I’ve failed over, and over, and over again in my life.

And that is why I succeed.”

– Michael Jordan

“Practice does not make perfect. Only perfect practice makes perfect.”
