We have close ties with many college programs and have guest coaches like Todd Rogers (2008 Olympic Gold Medalist) and Canyon Ceman (World Silver medalist, Volleyball Magazine Fab 100) who come to work with our program. Past guest coaches include: Olympic gold medalist Todd Rogers; Rob Machan, the Sacred Heart University head coach; our technical director, Lehigh University head coach and YMCA Volleyball Hall of Fame inductee Bob Bertucci; and Charlie Sullivan, the head coach of Springfield College, 2012 NCAA Division III National Champions.
Our goal is to teach the game of volleyball, ensure sportsmanship and to build the finest club possible. We welcome beginners and also work with developed players who strive to play in serious college programs. If you have the desire, we will teach you the game. We have multiple teams and players at every level. We want you to improve, we want you to meet your potential, and we want you to love the game.
We were the only New England club to send teams to the boys national championships the last three years.
