The League welcomes teams and individuals and features coed, men’s and women’s divisions.
Our volleyball programs are not team oriented; we specialize in building skills and athleticism on an individual basis. We work on the individual needs of the volleyball player in order to make her a better athlete.
Our entire program is focused on skills and mechanically breaking them down so the athlete can achieve control of themselves and the ball. Getting and being in shape is the athlete’s responsibility. Students will get a workout – but our goal is to teach proper mechanics, how to implement each skill, and building on those skills so the athlete can reach the next level. We expect 100% effort and attention, a positive attitude, hard work and complete focus by the athlete.
Although our focus is on individual skills, we do teach the individual everything they need to make a team, play on a team, and become a starter on a team.
