What Makes VISION Elite and VISION VBC 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 Volleyball Club athletes while bench coaches would be trained separately in the strategies of the game and mental preparation. 

VISION Volleyball Club 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 Volleyball Club 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.

VISION Volleyball Mission Statement

Based in Winnipeg, Manitoba, VISION Volleyball is a partnership of volunteers, coaches, athletes, and their parents. We are committed to the pursuit of excellence while providing young female athletes the opportunity to perform at their absolute best. We strive to develop enhanced confidence, increased skill levels, genuine competitiveness and a positive self image for all our participating athletes. We also stress a positive attitude during play, the importance of preparation for top-level competition, teamwork and the value of volleyball as a sport. 

VISION Volleyball players improve their skills and gain valuable experience by competing from January to May at local, regional and national tournaments. Athletes receive additional instruction throughout the season at positional camps and workshops conducted by our head coaches and other volleyball experts.

Our goal is to provide a positive coaching environment where athletes can:

  • develop good sportsmanship; 
  • take their volleyball skills to the next level;
  • promote team pride and positive self-esteem; 
  • inspire a strong work ethic and a winning attitude; 
  • maintain their love of the game and continue to have fun. 

Athletic achievement is important to us. However, VISION Volleyball also strives 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 she 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 herself. 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 as an elite athlete. And although individual gifts of athletic ability, size and speed are empowering, athletes also need elite training and a positive, well-managed organization. If you share our philosophy and our commitment to excellence, we hope you will consider VISION Volleyball Club.

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.
