First off let's just start by saying this club is not your normal let's get your money type club. This club is dedicated to parent bonding as well players. The main goal is to teach your children volleyball and life skills.
The coaching staff at Trailsend is top-level. These are coaches with many years of experience coaching at competitive high school levels, pulling from their own careers as players, too. They create such a high-energy, fun and dynamic environment in the gym that's backed up by a truly impressive level of game play and skills training. Most importantly, I've seen the level of care and dedication the coaches give to the players first hand. My daughter looks forward to practice, even on the tough days, knowing they will be supported, challenged and understanding that you get out of something what you put into it. They're having FUN.
The standards for the club are high, and reflect the values we're cultivating at home: commitment, communication, working hard, being the best you can be for yourself and your team. Conversation with the coaches is specific and honest, with development in mind, both as volleyball players and as growing people. There's def a long-term focus here. So many lessons in the ups and downs of pursuing something at this level.
Trailsend is very well-run and professional, with dedicated staff!! The biggest unexpected benefit of being part of the club is the sense of family and support from other players, coaches, and families across all age levels. We spend a lot of time together, and this sense of true community is huge.
Looking forward to the 2019/2020 season with Trails
