Coaches are more than welcome to attend for free.  Please e-mail me for details.  Thanks in advance!

Advanced Volleyball is coming to the Quad Cities!

The Nation's #1 volleyball skills clinic taught by Olympic Gold Medalist--Pat Powers--invites you to come share in the fun at Black Hawk College.

When: Monday, June 30th,  9:00 AM-4:00 PM and Tuesday, July 1st, 9:00 AM-2:00 PM.  Want to take volleyball further? I will be discussing college scholarships, high school and club volleyball immediately after the first session with both players and parents.

Where:
Black Hawk College
Quad Cities Campus
6600 34th Avenue
Moiline, IL 61265
309 796-5000

Free Camp T-Shirt!

Q: What does this clinic offer the Advanced player?  A: It fills in technical gaps for experienced players.

Q: What does this clinic have for the Beginning player?  A: It is easier to teach skills as novice players have not acquired bad habits.

Who: Designed for novice through advanced level girls and boys ages 12-18 and Adults.

Why: Permanent results by using the "over-correction" learning method combined with --Survivor--The popular king/queen of the court game. Skill development results from actual play, using a unique approach beyond six-on-six competition.  Current skill level is not an issue.

Eastside VBC Recruiting Combine
Posted On: 11/01/2013

The Eastside Volleyball Club is pleased to host a Great Lakes Region Volleyball Combine. The Eastside VBC Recruiting Combine will be held on December 28, 2013 from 7:30 am to 12 noon. This combine is open to ANY athlete, not just Eastside VBC players. Please link to the Great Lakes Volleyball Combine Registration to register and set up a profile. The following is the registration information sent from Great Lakes Region Combine Director Creig Federico.

"The Great Lakes Region has created a "Eastside Volleyball Combine Tryout" Membership that is listed in the NEW MEMBERSHIP section. Here is the link to the Region Membership page. It may show a cost BUT they WILL NOT be asked for payment...



They will select: Eastside VBC Combine Special One Day Membership (December 28)

Per the region, if the kids were PREVIOUSLY registered with USAV they will go into their records as a renewing member and if they are brand new they go to our website first and click on the Register Now link and then
under Registration Links they click the one for NEW MEMBER.
 
As a quick reference, below is a short list of what separates the Great Lakes Region Club Combine from others:
  • Each athlete receives their own Online Profile for their entire high school career.
  • They can update all personal information at any time.
  • They can add their own up-to-date highlight links at any time.
  • This is the only combine which includes skills video.
  • The Online Player Database and all player profiles are available to EVERY College Volleyball Coach in the country...FREE! We don't just say we send out a report....we mass email all coaches so they know there are new players in the database...where they can login 24/7 at any time in the year...etc.
  • Club Directors have or receive FREE access to their players results...
  • The cost is very competitive compared to similar services whose programs offer way less! 
In the end, this program will provide your athletes/parents with a reasonable, trustworthy and cost-effective program versus the many "outside" recruiting services.

The program also provides a marketing tool that parents, player's and club recruiting coordinators or directors can forward when reaching out to college coaches."
