Coaching Approach

Our approach

We believe that every player deserves a chance to meet their dreams! We believe that solid training fueled by passion can give the player a chance to be admitted to High School Team. In fact, 65% of our young athletes who participated in our Recreational program made High School Teams this year!

We want your child to succeed and we offer the program that challenges each player to do his or her best! We expect all players join Thunderbolts to learn, advance and achieve! We pride ourselves in solid foundation training of core skills of passing and serving, progressing to more advanced techniques of setting, hitting and playing dedicated positions.

Our Recreational Program is tailored to player's level to ensure steady growth of skills and confidence.

Our Club Program is for advanced players who seek more competitive exposure in the region.

 

Fun Facts:

  • We do not have try outs for our Rec teams. We host evaluation night, where we observe the players and place them on the teams that will benefit them most from the learning and growth perspective.
  • Our Core program is a rec/rec-competitive league that strives to provide more competitive level of experience at affordable cost.
  • After 1 year in operation we have grown 500% in Rec Leagues!
  • In Fall 2020 Thunderbolt Volleyball is offering Select Club option for those who would like more competitive experience and exposure in the region. Join us! Play with us!
