--No Sunday Play--

We want to be upfront with our families.  We do not play on Sunday.  Though much of the volleyball world thinks that playing in huge 3-day tournaments is the ONLY way to success, our experiences give us confidence in saying that this is not so.  We’ve had numerous cases of players moving on to play at the next level whose career did not require them to play on Sunday. We’ve found that the single most important thing to a college coach, when recruiting, is that a player can execute the game at the college level of skill and athleticism.  Furthermore, we believe that abstaining from Sunday play will help our players’ bodies recover, help them stay on top of their schoolwork, and have time to spend with their families.

While it has proven harder to find 2-day tournaments that will have college coaches present, we have identified several.  We have contacted a few college coaches and they have indicated that the events we are attending WILL have recruiters watching.

Certainly, it is important for players to be seen by coaches at tournaments, and an even more crucial factor in the recruiting process is the work that our players and coaches put into contacting coaches from schools they would like to attend.  Acquiring film and sending it out will often be the most efficient way to get a coaches’ attention, rather than hoping to catch someone’s eye across the expanse of the tournaments.

We hope you will join us!
