Before we embark on what will be our 5th official season as a club program, we couldn’t help but take a moment and reflect on how lucky we have been over the past few years!
If you took a chance on us four years ago and helped kick-start this journey; thank you. If you are returning to register with us for another season this upcoming year; thank you. If you are starting volleyball and we are a place that makes you feel at home; thank you.
It is humbling to think back on the last 4 years: In our first inaugural season we had over 150 athletes tryout to be a new member of our club. Excited (& a little shocked) in both the interest AND talent of the athletes who came out to our gym, at the time we only had the bandwidth, gym space and coaching staff to fill 4 teams. Just as quickly as we started, a global pandemic came barreling through and shut down not only our program, but everything in its path, only a few short months later. Our coaches & athletes are special though, and maintained connection during this time. During this time we saw them have weekly meetings via Zoom, virtual workouts, training classes, and constant communication.
During the past few years, a lot has happened: we have continued to see an increase in the number of teams we can offer, as well as tryout and registration numbers on the rise. We have sent athletes to continue on their athletic careers and are currently playing collegiately across all three NCAA divisions (DI, DII, DIII), in addition to both beach & club-level teams. We have secured National Rankings that landed some of our teams in the top 100 (nation-wide) based on the given age, time and year. We have competed against teams from more than 35 different states and traveled to almost 15 states to do so. We just concluded up on our 3rd consecutive year of sending teams to compete in the AAU National Championship in Florida, allowing 13 different teams to represent and compete on behalf of our club and New Hampshire and the New England Region. We are also fortunate enough to have former athletes come back as spectators, fans, & now, even coaches.
Thank you for learning and growing with us, for trusting us, and for working with us to further the development of your individual student-athlete and the greater volleyball community in New Hampshire!
