2014 Fall-Winter Camp Coaching Staff

Students From Cascade High School Win Spring Open Tournament

Mostly comprised of students from Cascade High School
Mostly comprised of students from Cascade High School

Last year the group of students from Cascade High School were caught flat footed in the championship game against a seasoned club team mostly from Graham-Kampowsin High School, this year they were not to be denied.  The foe in this years final was a group of students from Curtis High School, most on the South Sound  Volleyball club team.   As the afternoon wore on it was becoming apparent that this group comprised mostly of Jrs and Srs were not going home without hosting the trophy.  There commitment to volleyball was evident when after the tournament the group huddled together and talked about playing later that evening in Mill Creek, WA, close to the Cascade High School Campus.

The differences in style of play could not be any more apparent in the championship game.  The team consisting of mostly students from Curtis High School ran a consistent 5-1 throughout the tournament.  The Cascade students ran the setter out of the middle and rotated to the setter position.   As the commissioner put it, “It’s not the style of play, but the perfection of the style of play that wins at this level of volleyball.”   To get to the championship the students from Cascade played a host of students from Washington High School, the first ever member school.  The play was great, and though the eventual champions won in two, Washington came within a few points to push the game to three.  The more energized match, which may have been the students from Curtis’s downfall was the O’dea students pushing the young team to three games and losing only by a score of 17-15 in the third game.   The Tournament Team will be announced tomorrow.

This years tournament featured only 4 teams, but the commissioner blamed it more on moving the date into June, than on lack of interest.  “If we had kept the same weekend, we would have easily eclipsed 7 teams and really pushed to eight teams. ” said Brian Boyer The commissioner of the WSHSBVA. “It’s a great lesson to learn now, and next week we will have our dates for next year all finalized this time much earlier in the year.”  WSHSBVA also announced that they would be hosting a Boys Doubles Grass Tournament, next year.   Dates and locations have yet to be determined.    The tournament was held at the Five12 courts in Puyallup, home to the Lake Tapps Volleyball Club.

New Summer Camp/ Club Team Information

Nate Ngo, one of the assistant volleyball coaches at the University of Portland has announced in an effort to promote the sport of volleyball is extending an invitation to the boys playing volleyball on any team to join the Pilots at their summer camps. The only restriction (for this year) is they will not open up the overnight option for their advanced camp to boys. Boys are welcome to be a commuter camper for the Overnight Advanced Camp, but just not as an over-nighter. They will look to open this to boys in the future.

You can find more information as well as registration for the camps at www.portlandpilots.com/camps and clicking on “Volleyball Camps”. or http://www.portlandpilots.com/sports/2014/4/7/VB_0407142122.aspx

UP also has a team camp option on July 18-20 and that is also open to boys teams if they wish to train as a team. You can contact the assitant coach directly at ngo@up.edu.
UP also has hosted free clinics on campus in the past and that is something they want to continue to do and will open that to boys as well. The Pilots will continue to look for dates, generally on the weekends, to host these clinics. Portland will post the information mainly through their social media accounts which are: http://www.facebook.com/PilotsVolleyball

Thunder Beach
The sport of sand volleyball is growing with the NCAA looking to add it as a collegiate sport. Last year was our first year training on the sand with Thunder Beach and we are happy to say it was a huge success! Those girls that came out and trained came back to the club season ready to compete. Sand volleyball really helps your all around game and what better way to spend your summer, than in the sand!

Here are just a few things to note about Thunder Beach

1. We are a registered Puget Sound Beach Training Program so our coaches have to maintain certain certifications, plus being under the umbrella of USAV helps to keep us up-to-date with tournaments and other events.

2. Thunder Beach is run by Jen Baklenko. Jen played professionally on the beach on the following tours;WPVA, 4 person BL tour, MPVA . She is the Puget Sound High Performance Head Coach and was the volunteer Assistant for University of Washington Sand Volleyball team in their inaugural season. She is USAV Beach Impact and CAP certified. In other words, Thunder’s coaching experience is unparalleled in the region!

3. This is our SECOND year of Thunder Beach. We have grown and changed the program to best instruct and supply the beach player with the skills she/he needs to stay active, involved, in shape and still learning and loving the game. We have added one three hour session per week to let the player play while being instructed and coached.

For Summer 2014, Thunder Beach will be practicing on Monday and Thursday evenings starting on June 2nd through August 4th at Sandbox Sports in Georgetown 5955 Airport Way S, Seattle, WA 98108 . Players age U14 and under will practice from 6-7:30pm and players age U15 and older will practice from 7:30-9pm. No practice on 7/3.

On Wednesdays we will be practicing at Golden Gardens (8498 Seaview Pl NW, 98117) from 12:30-3:30pm. This practice starts on June 18th and ends on August 13th. As stated above, Wednesdays will be more competition with coaching during games. This will also allow players to play together and decide on partnering for tournaments. All ages are welcome for the entire three hour session.

We are offering two packages this season. We recognize that vacation schedules and other activities will take precedence from time to time. To best plan and schedule staff and courts, we are asking you to sign up for the entire season. You can choose between 2 times a week or 3 times a week to help defray costs. However, because we are being flexible for the summer, those players that sign up for 3x a week will have priority in signups and those that sign up for 2 x a week might be put on a waitlist. If you are placed on a waitlist, we will contact you very soon to let you know if you are in the session or not . The cost for Thunder Beach 3x a week for the entire summer is $725. The cost for 2x’s a week is $550. Tournament entries are separate from this as there are 4 different venues to play in, however, our coaching staff will help you select appropriate tournaments and level of play.

Included in this cost is over 50 hours of instruction/beach court time, Thunder tanktop or teeshirt, coaching at tournaments that allow coaching and where a Thunder Beach staff member is in attendance. This is open to both Boys and Girls. Siblings will receive a $25 discount per player. Please make sure to pay at time of checkout otherwise you will be placed on a waitlist. No refunds for sessions not attended.

If you did not play club volleyball this past season, you will need to register with USAV through our region. It is a $15 summer membership.
Let us know if you have any questions at jenb@goitvc.com.

Moxie will be fielding beach volleyball training teams this summer!

There coaches will be Keon Price, Kelsie Peterson, Cindy Huang, and Mike Bailey. We will teach fundamental skills and strategy as well as knowledge of rules necessary to play the beach doubles game. Emphasis will be placed on high quality repetition.

WESCO 2014 District and Why High School Sports Matter

Last week the association was at the WESCO District Macho Volleyball Tournament in which 14 schools were represented at the Tournament. The tournament features many athletes most of them Seniors, since to qualify you have to go through another tournament put on by each school. To help with the fun of the tournament the nets are at girls height. Towards the end I met a young man who was downtrodden after his team had lost in the quarterfinals. This student looked shocked and stunned, staring into the distance. I knew who he was, that he played for Space Needle, the high octane club that produced Matt West, and I sat with him and told him he was slightly overreacting because in a week and a half he would be playing on guys size nets against competition that would make this brand of volleyball look childish at the CEVA tournament which features about 10 teams traveling from across the northwest. It cheered him up slightly but the reality set in as a friend from his High School, the other dominant volleyball player on his team a non club member, sat with him and began to nudge him toward leaving.

The truth is the student athlete wanted to win this tournament more than he wanted to win any other local tournament this year. Hec, he may have wanted this low level tournament more than the National USAV boys tournament. What makes it so different? Even if his team wins the Gold/Open highest level (not sure what they call it) U-18 bracket, no one at his school will know. He could tell them, and then they may look it up, but other then that, no one knows. However if he won this tournament, maybe not everyone at the school, but at least a larger portion would know, and he would have been the best player on that team. SNVF may win this weekend, and they have a good shot of doing it, but again, I will know, his family will know, the volleyball at large community will know, but no one at his school will know. That is what makes high school sports so important to the student athletes, more then varsity letters, jackets, or gym bags, is the fact that there community knows they are good at something.
