VISION Youth Academy Coaching

VISION Elite Volleyball Club is the High-Performance program for Volleyball Winnipeg. Simply put, the coaching staff is second-to-none in the Province.
 
That being said, there are virtually no experienced coaches willing to spend a season working with young athletes in grades 5-7. As a result, all VISION Youth Academy teams are expected to be coached by parent-volunteer coaches. In fact, a primary goal of this program is that of developing future coaches. Without the participation of parent-volunteer coaches there would be virtually no opportunity for young athletes to get started.
 
Both VISION Youth Academy programs train in gyms with experienced coaches on a second court. These coaches are available to assist parent coaches as needed. Coaches simply need to ask. With that, an experienced VISION Elite coach will attend 1-2 early-season training sessions to ensure parent-volunteer coaches understand the principles of the training program.
 
VISION Youth Academy was developed to provide young athletes who aspire for a competitive introduction to the sport with a place to play and learn the fundamentals. The program is available to girls and boys in grades 5 and 6 who are interested in practicing once a week and playing on Sunday afternoons in the VISION Premier League.

Live Life... Play Volleyball

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.

I’m glad to have had Vision Elite Volleyball as my first ever volleyball club. Everyone at the club was nice, and patient when learning new skills. The practices were informative as well. - C.D.

I really like the coaching style of the coach, he is very honest and I believe that that is the best way for me, and the whole team to learn. - C.T.
