Prime Volleyball Club provides athletes with high-level technical skills training and tactical instruction in a positive learning environment that fosters personal growth and development and a passion for the game of volleyball.
Prime VC Core Values
We are committed to ensuring that every Prime Volleyball Club athlete has a positive experience that fuels their love of volleyball and competition. We focus on the process over outcomes and developing a growth mindset; in other words our top priority is always striving to improve and giving each athlete the feedback and tools to help them improve as a volleyball athlete and person every day. While we do provide our athletes with the highest caliber of volleyball training, it is equally important that athletes learn life lessons that will stay with them long after their volleyball career comes to an end. Our coaches are mentors, role models, and above all, teachers. We teach our athletes the game of volleyball including all aspects of skills training, tactical knowledge, and match strategies. Additionally we teach our athletes to be disciplined, compete and train at full effort, be a positive and supportive teammate, be a problem solver, push beyond their comfort zone, and compete with confidence and enthusiasm. Above all we teach and expect all of our athletes and coaches to conduct themselves with the highest level of integrity and character. Winning matches is far less important than competing with character, being honest, ethical, and kind, and respecting everyone and everything we encounter along with this wonderful sport we all love. That is the ultimate win.
We expect both our athletes and our coaches to constantly find ways to improve and grow. Our coaches get together at least once a month to discuss training methods and techniques and share their successes with their teams so that we can learn from one another. Prime’s Directors train and work with every coach on staff to ensure that each team is receiving the same high-level coaching and to create continuity between all of our teams and age groups. Having a Director of Training who has won an Olympic Gold Medal with Team USA and has coached with the USA Men’s Team for over a decade allows our Prime Staff to learn from someone who has coached volleyball at the very highest level. That knowledge and experience greatly benefits our developing Prime athletes as they train with their coaches and teams using the same principles our USA Olympic Teams utilize to be the best in the world.
Prime Volleyball Club is a family. Our older athletes work with and get to know our younger athletes and our teams support and cheer for each other whenever they can. We host club wide events and activities throughout the season that give all of our athletes and families the chance to get to know each other better and grow as a family.
Prime has no aspirations of growing into a sizable club with numerous teams at each age group. Limiting the number of Prime teams allows us to focus our organizational abilities and maintain our attention to detail, providing the highest quality club volleyball experience possible. Prime can then ensure that every team has extraordinary coaches. We are very fortunate to have an outstanding group of coaches upon whom our athletes can rely on for instruction, guidance, and support.
Prime Volleyball Club teams are formed with the goal of creating nationally competitive teams at every age group and work throughout the season to qualify for the USA Volleyball Junior National Championships. We expect a high level of commitment from everyone involved with Prime VC and seek athletes who want to put in the time and work necessary to be the best volleyball player they can be. Our Directors and Coaches share that commitment and work tirelessly to build highly successful teams and athletes.
