Vision Elite Volleyball Club

Realize your Potential

TRYOUTS
VISION Elite athletes are selected at our annual ID Camps which are held in early December of each year. Registration for these selection camps begins in early October. For a list of camps see our ID CAMPS page.
 

VISION RECRUITMENT POLICY
Most VISION Elite team coaches will look to pre-select as many as six (6) athletes prior to the December selection camps. This process is undertaken in the months of September and October. Please note that no VISION coach will complete his team prior to the December tryouts. Therefore, every VISION team will be looking to recruit some athletes on to the team.

Love Life... Play Volleyball

The VISION Elite Volleyball Club was formed to provide athletes with  the best opportunity to play volleyball in a highly competitive environment. We emphasize the values of teamwork, self-discipline, self-motivation, good sportsmanship, and encourage all of our players to strive to be their very best. VISION Elite coaches will deliver superior technical instruction with a focus directly on the personal growth, development and support of our young athletes. We aspire to bring a little joy and happiness to the lives of our young athletes. 

All VISION Elite teams will be trained under the supervision of a team of coaches from Club Head Coach to team coaches. The coaching staff will utilize a variety of skill-specific drills that have been developed by our head coach over the years. Athletes will also be exposed to physical conditioning requirements and mental training principles. All VISION Elite coaches have worked hard over the years to ensure our athletes get the most out of their playing experience. Our exceptional coaching staff will provide a great opportunity for each team to excel in competition at the local and national levels.

Coaches at VISION Elite Volleyball have earned recognition for producing some of the top club athletes in the country, and past athletes can be found at colleges and universities across North America. The strength in our program is based in the development of fundamentally sound athletes, well-trained in all aspects of the game.

The mission of VISION Elite Volleyball is to be a leader in teaching, coaching and training young female volleyball athletes in all the aspects of the sport including; strong fundamentals in all volleyball skills; a sound understanding of team tactics; exposure to physical conditioning; and an introduction to mental preparation. This competitive athletic experience will enhance the social development, contribute to mental and physical health, and teach the values of teamwork, responsibility, self-discipline, and self-motivation to each athlete.

What people have to say about our program...

When I first came to VISION I was not a very strong volleyball player and didn't know much about the game. That changed after about two weeks of practicing which were sometimes tough but you could tell it helped us in the long run, plus you get to know your team really well with all the team bonding our manager puts together, so there lots of fun. As the year went on my skills improved more and more, and they will continue to improve as I will go back to playing with Vision. All of my coaches were fantastic and knew tons about the game. They helped me and my team improve mentally and physically on the court. I am excited to play again for VISION this year and hope the year will be even better than last year! - D.M.

The VISION coaching was the best I have ever had! All the coaches were very willing to give you great advice! Playing with VISION has been the best time for me to improve. - A.E.

I learned a lot this season thanks to the help of my coaches. I couldn’t have asked for a better team because I truly made best friends on this team! - K.B.

We've appreciated the opportunity to work with our athletes over the past 18 years and look forward to meeting our new group this coming season.

Hello Vision Families,

It is with sadness, that we announce the passing of one the faithful Vision Volleyball Moms. Jackie Hartog (mom to Jaelene Hartog) who played for Vision U14 Thunder last club season) passed away suddenly of an unexpected medical condition on Nov. 11, 2018. Jackie was always present in the gym cheering on her daughter with enthusiasm and passion. She would willingly volunteer to be scorekeeper and help in any way that she could. This Fall Jaelene is playing on the Vision Youth League team "Fire", coached by Deirdre Khan. Jackie has never once missed her daughter play a volleyball game as she loved watching Jaelene play. 

We encourage everyone who knows her family to take the time to reach out with care and support. Jackie was also a nurse dedicated to helping other. 

Jackie was a single mother of 4 with one of the biggest hearts we have seen. A GoFundMe page has been set up to help cover funeral costs and family expenses.

However, in addition to the GoFundMe page, Vision is like a big volleyball family and would like to support Jaelene more directly. Vision will be contacting families in the coming months to offer an opportunity to contribute to an idea that would directly help Jaelene. Please stay tuned for that opportunity! 

If you would like more information or have some ideas on how to help, please contact Milli via email: milli.khan@gmail.com
