ATHLETE CENTERED

Our PEAK values are perseverance, empowerment, attitude, and kaizen. 

Focusing on these things helps athletes become more skilled and more confident.

We help athletes reach their potential by developing sound fundamentals.

Our principles-based approach ensures athletes will excel both now and in the future.

We help athletes MAXIMIZE their abilities by cultivating a growth mindset.

Instilling a love of the game, as well as life-long learners who are students of the

game is our highest aspiration.

Coaching is an honor and a privilege.

Our coaches believe all athletes are capable, resourceful, and full of potential.

We consciously create an environment for learning and growing.

Our coaches walk the talk. We are students of the game and life-long learners.

Coaches spend time planning thoughtful practices. We are trained in using consistent terminology and coaching keys to provide consistency for our athletes.

While we do not focus solely on winning as our only desirable outcome, we know that is it a pleasant and expected by-product of our commitment to excellence.

COACH DRIVEN

Perseverance in the face of failure is the key to success.

Empowered athletes play their best when their best is needed.

Attitudes are the intangible yet powerful thoughts and feelings expressed through actions.

Kaizen sets the standard for life-long learning & becoming just a little bit better today than we were yesterday.

OUR GUIDING PRINCIPLES

"Principles are fundamental truths that serve as the foundations for behavior that gets you what you want out of life."

- Ray Dalio -

WHY DO PRINCIPLES MATTER?

Principles create the foundation for everything that we do.

They allow us to make better decisions, more quickly, and to correct behavior promptly.

We use proven methods that WORK for athletes of all ages and across all skill levels.

Here are our guiding principles:

STRONG WOLF, STRONGER PACK

First, be strong.

Choose a pack that strengthens you. Bring out the best in each other.

EVERYONE PLAYS EVERYTHING FOR AS LONG AS POSSIBLE

Being well-rounded will allow athletes to play longer and deepens their volleyball IQ.

BORROW FROM THE BEST, THEN MAKE IT YOUR OWN

Using proven coaching systems are more effective; making it your own encourages mastery.

1 + 3 = 6

When copper and tin come together in the right way, they make something new and stronger (bronze).

In a similar fashion, the strength of the pack can be much greater than individuals alone.

IF YOU CARE TO WIN, FIRST CARE FOR EACH OTHER

Showing care for others and treating them kindly is something we seek after.

Additionally, great teams put the success of the team above themselves.

GROWTH COMES THROUGH THE PURSUIT OF EXCELLENCE

Striving to be our best and facing challenges head on leads to true joy and fulfillment.

BRING YOUR BRAIN TO THE GAME

Thinking critically is a skill that must be turned on. This is a skill we train.

Performance may decrease at first, but learning will be enhanced long term. 

YOU CAN FOOL A FOOL, BUT YOU CAN'T KID A KID

Being authentic and genuine is vital for our athlete-athlete and coach-athlete relationships. 

MECHANICS MATTER

Healthy and effective movement patterns benefit athletes most. Bad mechanics = limited athletes.

EVERYTHING IS A SKILL

Skills can be improved. This includes things like athleticism, competitiveness, and focus.

LET BREAKING POINT BECOME TURNING POINT

What stands in the way becomes the way. Struggle is part of the deal. We seek to struggle well.

EARNED = ESTEEM

Earning a role on a team creates ownership. Athletes get the most value from earned experiences.

NEXT PLAY > LAST PLAY

Winning the moment and focusing on the play in front of us is the mindset we embrace.
