Believe in the VISION

What Makes VISION Elite and VISION Volleyball Club Different

Coaching is not an easy undertaking. 

A strong practice coach must study seasonal training principals; understand fundamental skills and techniques in how to develop these skills while avoiding the incursion of bad habits; move athletes to the next level of development through the introduction of advanced technical training, not to mention a strong understanding of the sport’s systems of play.

A strong bench coach must be a strong communicator and strategist; he/she must be sensitive to the emotion of the team and that of individual athletes; master mental preparation and translate that into consistent performance in demanding environments.

Simply put, training athletes requires exceptional analytical ability with strong attention to detail while game-day coaching requires a strong communicator with proficient inter-personal skills. Finding part-time coaches who can dedicate themselves to mastering these very different sets of skills is a rare occurrence.

With twenty years of club volleyball experience in Manitoba, in 2019 VISION Elite Head Coaches came to the conclusion that the best way to provide athletes with a consistently positive club volleyball experience was to train instructors who would be uniquely responsible for training VISION Elite athletes while bench coaches would be trained separately in the strategies of the game and mental preparation. 

VISION Elite is dedicated to the continuing education of its instructors and bench coaches and, with an ever-increasing inventory of training videos, believes it has developed the strongest volleyball program in the province. Furthermore, with instructors training athletes, VISION Elite athletes always have a neutral club representative they can approach should they have issues with the team bench coaches or their roles on 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.

Learn to Compete

VISION CLUB GOALS

  1. We are a community-based non-profit organization committed to training and developing athletes through competitive participation in the sport of volleyball;
  2. We provide guidance to families whose athlete may be qualified to pursue post secondary athletic opportunities;
  3. We expect coaches, players, and parents to always encourage good sportsmanship and act with high personal integrity when representing the club;
  4. We create positive awareness within the community by developing a working relationship with area colleges, schools, and community groups.

TOURNAMENT PLAY
All club teams are tournament teams. Although tryouts start in December the tournament season doesn't officially begin until March. Tournaments can then be found on a weekly basis until Nationals in May.

Due to the nature of these events, club teams are often marked by the stress of winning and losing. Unlike "League Play" a tournament format does not allow for the fun-free, fair-play environment found in recreational leagues. Simply stated, tournaments are inherently stress-filled events with winners being announced at the end of the day. Parents and athletes should prepare themselves for this environment.

VISION CLUB VOLLEYBALL
The primary goals of Volleyball Winnipeg is to establish sustainable programs while developing coaches. In the fall of 2002, Volleyball Winnipeg coaches first began offering elite club volleyball programs under the "Titans Volleyball Club". Over the years these same coaches have provided young Winnipeg-area female athletes one of the largest elite volleyball programs in Canada and subsequently changed program names as the philosophy of the program changed. Volleyball Winnipeg coaches have been involved in a number of community club programs including: Stars Volleyball, Fusion Volleyball, TSF United Volleyball, Junior Bison Volleyball and the River City Volleyball Club.

In the fall of 2011 Volleyball Winnipeg coaches decided to focus on the growth of its grass-roots volleyball programs and limit its participation in club to one or two teams per age class. This would allow our Head Coach the opportunity to focus his club involvement on the very best development for our teams by working more closely with all participating club coaches. Limiting our teams would result in better quality control and a better, more competitive club experience for all our athletes. Volleyball Winnipeg coaches therefore renamed their elite development program: VISION Elite Volleyball Club.

VISION Elite Volleyball strives to provide top level training by experienced coaches dedicated to offering a higher level of volleyball instruction. This program was developed for those athletes who desire more skills training and competition than can be provided after the relatively short school volleyball season. The program runs from December until May.

Furthermore, VISION Elite Volleyball has some of the most experienced coaching staff in the province. The average coach has eight years of club coaching experience and is fully certified. We are especially proud to provide young volleyball enthusiasts a coaching staff that is committed to professional improvement and offer our coaches the largest volleyball library of books, videos, DVD’s in the country. Coaches are also provided with a VISION Volleyball Coaching handbook provided by the Head Coach.

In brief, Club Volleyball is the feeder system to university and college volleyball programs. If athletes aspire to make a post-secondary volleyball program they must participate in club volleyball.

ATHLETE SELECTION
Tryouts: All VISION Elite club teams are high performance teams with athletes being subject to a selection process. All ID Camps are held in early December. For a list of VISION Elite ID Camps please visit our "ID Camps" page.

All club coaches must be certified as follows:

  • 14 and under: Technical One
  • 16 and under: Technical Two
  • 18 and under: Certified Level Two

Try outs may vary, but it is fair to say that most coaches are looking at the basics. Can you pass? Can you hit? Although some of the elite teams may take note of height and reach, most club coaches will focus on the fundamentals. And remember, most coaches will notice your attitude. Are you supporting others during drills and picking up loose balls? And you can bet that if you and your parents have a history of poor sportsmanship it will make its way to the coaches.

Many student-athletes remember their club experiences fondly. They would have made new friends and learned how to train like an athlete. The improved discipline would impact all aspects of their lives and they would have moved on to excel in both athletics and academics.

Athletic achievement is important to us. However, Winnipeg Regional Clubs also strive to develop the athlete as a person. When approached positively, athletics teaches important life skills.

OUR ATHLETES LEARN…the lessons of winning and losing: Winning with grace and without false pride that may cause future failure; and losing with honor and respect for the opponent.

OUR ATHLETES LEARN…how to deal with pressure. The butterflies an athlete may feel playing important matches - not unlike the butterflies they may feel when preparing for an important job interview later in life. 

OUR ATHLETES LEARN…respect for teamwork. The best player on a team cannot succeed by themself. The contributions of every player on the team are important.

OUR ATHLETES LEARN…the importance of goal setting and how hard work during preparation leads to success. They learn to approach practice as a time to change how they play for the better. Doing the wrong thing more often is not much help. It is better to change and do the right thing.

It remains true that much of an athlete’s improvement remains up to the individual. A good work ethic and commitment to personal improvement are necessary for personal success and as an athlete. And although God-given gifts of athletic ability, size and speed are empowering, athletes also need quality training and a positive, well-managed organization.

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.
