Each player has a different experience as a club member. Players and parents who put more effort into the program will get more out of it than those who do not attend practices or tournaments. Here are some primary benefits of the junior’s club volleyball program.
Quality Instruction: Our coaches are committed to providing our members with quality instruction every day they come to work. Fundamentals and advanced game strategies are developed every season.
Extended Training Schedule: Since high school programs are restricted to a few weeks of practice followed by an intensive match schedule, good technical instruction is hard to obtain during school. Our December to April training and competition phase allows ample time to work on techniques so players may improve their skill levels.
New Friendships: Since Whiteout players are committed to becoming excellent players, many new friendships are formed with players from different schools. Sportsmanship is strengthened by the mutual interests and competitive drive of each member during club season.
Learned Discipline: Good study habits and time management are learned skills commanded by participation in Whiteout volleyball. These skills will be used for the rest of our player’s lives. It is also vital that players have disciplined work habits on the court in order to be successful.
Exposure: As a member of most high school programs, it is likely that the only way a college coach will see you is if you or your opponent has an outstanding player. Due to NCAA regulations, budgetary and time constraints, collegiate coaches regularly attend junior competition in order to view more players in one sitting.
Competition: Through practices, scrimmages and tournaments, participants will compete against some of the top players in the nation.
Fitness: Conditioning does not play a large part in our plans because it takes vital time away from practices, however, it is necessary for players to be fit in order to succeed. Conditioning for volleyball will take place during practice drills. Conditioning outside of Whiteout Volleyball practice sessions is strongly encouraged.
Leadership Skills: The age-group system requires that younger players become leaders. The oldest players in the 16-unders, for example, are sophomores. Players returning to high school as juniors are often leaders ahead of their time due to their junior volleyball experience.
Education: We are trying to create smarter players, not just better players. Volleyball is a sport in which new situations happen frequently and players must learn to deal effectively with each new situation.
Fun: We think it is a lot more fun to play volleyball at a higher level. As players progress, and the speed of the game increases, it becomes more fun all the time.
