July 21st we had our 1st Annual "Battle for the Horizon" Outdoor Grass Volleyball Tournament Fundraiser and it was AWESOME! I couldn't have done it without the many volunteers, mama crews, papa crews, players crews, our fabulous athletic director and all of the participants that help our program out this season. We had 12 courts and 68 players... what a GREAT first year!!

We are dedicated to utilizing innovative speed, agility, and quickness (SAQ) training techniques as well as in-depth strength training instruction, including Olympic weightlifting exercises to improve performance. The program developed is designed to provide each individual with the knowledge necessary to maximize her physiological potential.
Girls, this is SUPER cheap and SUPER worth it. We are also going to be instilling an additional volleyball specific dynamic and explosive series at the end of this workout, totaling about a 1hr 30 minute workout.
