Change is good and our new board is focused on providing the absolute best volleyball training and character development to our athletes for the best possible rates. This Board believes that you can give the girls great coaching, highly competitive schedules and excellent clinics all at a reasonable rate.

 

Budgets are complete!!! While we could have given a preliminary budget months ago, as a club we wanted to assure you that our numbers were FINAL, would NOT change based on a 12 man roster, would give our girls appropriately competitive schedules at the lowest cost possible and promote exposure for our recruitable athletes. We are also introducing a DISCOUNT for full payment of tuition at the beginning of the club season, a new personalized payment plan that includes a 4 month – 9 month payment plan. We are introducing each Age Group below and including the deposit amount (referred to as participation fees by other clubs), the budget amount based on a 12-member roster, a list of the tournaments included in the budget, the breaking news and coaching cadre.

Entering into the 15s year is the first step to the recruiting process! This is when our athletes are considered PSAs (Prospective Student Athletes). This is when we will start making contact with college coaches, asking athletes to fill out questionnaires and begin developing future collegiate athletes. With this understanding of athletic development, the club has decided to keep Coach Stephenson at the 15 National level to lead the 15s cadre. Last year, Tom was able to put our team in front of the best Division I coaches in the Nation and our girls received incredible interest to play after high school. We expect Tom to be able to put our newly recruitable girls in front of the best coaches as he has a great reputation for developing talent among college coaches.

Coaches

 

Coach Joe Ortiz – Coach Joe Ortiz brings coaching experience from the University of Texas, a top Division 1 school in the country and two NCAA appearances! His focus is bringing volleyball to everyone and competing at a high level without excessive costs. Joe has decided to revamp the 18s program this year to make it a more relaxed year with the same level of competition and allow the seniors to end the season early so they can get ready for college and spend time with their friends and family before they leave for the next stage in their life. After meeting with college coaches to determine what level of play they are looking for in their recruits, Joe has come up with the best possible schedule for our seniors to meet their needs and the desires of the college coaches. This is a revamped program and a great opportunity for our athletes.
