5th-7th grade and 8th-9th graders are given an opportunity to train the fundamentals of the game while also learning the necessary skills for team play. Our 8th & 9th grade training is being led by Kennedy Wade a recent TN Tech Volleyball Libero graduate who is working toward her strength and conditioning certificate. "Kennedy has played at the next level and can help our players understand all the extra aspects of the game to achieve what these players desire." adds Shannon Mincey We are still accepting 8th-9th graders if you know of a player interested have them contact us!
Our 5th-7th grade has been led by a group of coaches: Igor, Melanie, Bailey and Madi. "Melanie has coached at the middle school level with much success for many years and understands what all is needed to make the team and be a contributor for the team. Her goal is to help each player understand the entire picture." comments Shannon Mincey. The goal of our Rising Stars 5th-7th grade training is to help them not only learn individual skills but to learn what it feels like and means to be on a team. Much of the training includes talking about eye contact, getting along with others, working together, work ethic, hustle. "To enhance the education with needed social skills is a plus for our athletes." Shannon Mincey comments.
