NCFS - VELOCITY was developed by area
coaches Oct. 2006, in response to a need we perceived as we visited area schools and met with players and their families.
We noticed a lack of teams and programs in place to expand competitive, high school and college-preparatory volleyball experiences
to area players and families. Our goal is to make the club experience accessible, enlightening,
competitive, and fun. Allowing them the exposure they need to make a college team by participating in 1-2 out of town
tournaments in the older age groups. We seek to offer a competitive club experience and to prepare high school
athletes for a more elite experience in college athletics if possible. We
also aim to give players more depth and breadth of experience by targeting specific skills, exposing players to a broader
range of competition, and by developing desirable mental and physical characteristics in each athlete. It is our club philosophy
that during the 11-14 age range, specialty positions are not picked for the girls, other than setter's, in an effort
to make sure they are all competent in all aspects of the game, prior to entering their high school teams. An additional
benefit to playing club volleyball is that it will aid in your efforts to make your high school team. Many girls participate
in these clubs now making it difficult for girls who have not played to make their high school teams. Which is why this club
was begun, to ensure girls in our area have that opportunity. Through community efforts such as these we can help strengthen
the players of our high schools giving them the opportunity to feel increased success at that level.
