We use the evaluations to determine skill level so that we can make teams as even and fair as possible. Please bring knee pads and water bottle for evaluations.
Our coaches are all volunteers from the community who are passionate about volleyball and giving back to their community. We rely on our volunteer coaches to provide a nurturing and enriching learning environment. We want to teach our girls how to play sports – starting with a solid foundation of the fundamentals while gradually implementing new skills and challenging them throughout the season. If you are interested in coaching this season, please complete our application! All coaches are required to complete to a Level 2 FDLE Background Screen prior to coaching.
