At Valkyrie Volleyball we strive to develop strong athletes by focusing on overall athleticism, individual confidence and teamwork.
We are a small club where each player is not only important, but is considered part of the family. Our experienced coaches get to know and work with each player individually to enable her to reach her maximum potential while developing a team that trusts each other and competes at the highest level. In addition to developing the players' volleyball skills, we focus on overall athleticism to make each player more dynamic on and off the court.
The Valkyrie coaching staff are committed to our athletes and strive to maximize each student athlete's growth. Our athletes come to us with different athletic skills, academic skills and from varied socio-economic backgrounds. Our desire is to see every athlete develop to their full potential both on and off the court.
We work hard to identify athlete's strengths and weakness, so they can develop the skills needed to succeed. We recognize that every player is unique and requires different approaches to excel. Being able to identify those needs have been the secret to our success.
Community service gives our athletes an opportunity to serve others while bonding in a selfless goal - being a light in the lives of those who desperately need hope.
