VISION Volleyball Club is a new initiative launched this year to address the growing expense of participating in club volleyball.
There are no cuts with VISION Volleyball Club teams. Athletes who participate in try outs simply need to let coaches know they would like to participate in the VISION Club program and they will be accepted.
Fees for the program are also approx. 60% of the cost of playing club volleyball. Teams will practice twice a week and play league games on Sunday afternoons. They will also participate in four club tournaments during the club volleyball season.
Please note that athletes interested in making a VISION team attend a VISION Fall Camp where they can meet coaches and other VISION athletes. These are outlined below.
The Registration "VISION Volleyball Club" is not currently available.
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.
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:
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.
