Olivia really enjoyed her experience in Colorado and greatly improved in such a short amount of time! The coaches were amazing and I personally loved how hard they worked the girls! The atmosphere of the venue definitely sparked something in Olivia and we are just thrilled to have been a part of this incredible experience. We plan on attending more in the future.
I reached out to a couple of other girls from the Charlotte area that attended the training in Colorado Springs. A colleague of mine at WBTV (local CBS affiliate) is going to do a story about their experience on their new morning show. I will be sure to send you the link when it airs!
Thanks again and we will be on the lookout for the updates to her player profile!
Coach Tillie Kerna
Sorry it has taken me so long to reply. I've been very busy with club, high school and family activities. I had a blast on the trip. I learned so much and really appreciated the opportunity I got to work with the coaches and the other girls. It was hard work but I enjoyed being pushed with the other girls I worked with. Thank you for the all opportunities you've and everyone else has given me. I really appreciated it.
Good afternoon Dan,
I would like to thank you for giving me this opportunity to attend the Under Armour Volleyball Factory. It was a great experience and full of laughs! Thank you for helping my mom and I with registering for this event, but most of all, thank you for helping get further in my recruiting process. Thank you so much Dan!
My daughter raved about her experience at the event tonight. And from a mom's point of view, the entire staff was hands-on, genuine and true pros. What a great opportunity. Thanks Volleyball Factory.
I was privileged with the opportunity to be a part of the Volleyball Factory camp in Pensacola. It was an incredible experience, much like none other I have been a part of. The camp had a small number of girls, which made the training much more meaningful and beneficial because lots of attention was given to each of us individually. I learned many different valuable skills which have helped to improve every aspect of my volleyball game such as arm swing, platform, and serve.
The coaching staff was incredible and had wide knowledge of the game which has helped me to improve my technique and court awareness. They provided me a daily workout plan for conditioning off the court which is really challenging me to be a better athlete.
Dave Packer, my Player Development Coordinator has been extremely helpful in putting together my player page and answering all my recruiting questions. I don’t know how I would tackle this recruiting process for college without him.
Everyone at the Volleyball Factory has been so good to me. I enjoyed every part of the camp and would definitely participate in more of these wonderful programs with the Volleyball Factory!
It was an awesome experience for my daughter. She learned so much. It was well organized and very efficient.
I really enjoyed my experience in Lake Placid at the Advanced Summer Training!!!
Thank you so much for inviting me to participate in this program. I had such a great time and I learned a lot of technique and specific things for my positions. All of the coaches were great and very helpful. I am so glad I was able to figure out that my primary position should be libero. I’m looking forward to hearing my evaluation and seeing my video!
Thanks for putting this together and emailing me the rotations.
I wanted to send you a quick note to let you know how impressed Alex and I were with last night's session! -I noticed (& Alex experienced) that the coaches and players were very supportive and encouraging towards each other. The parent information was very helpful -The personal recruiting experience shared by Julia was a great "lesson learned"
The session was a great value for the time and cost. I think the girls maybe had a total of 15-20 minutes of rest/water all night, yet they all seemed happy and energized.
At the end of the night (and even after a 2 hour high school practice that afternoon), Alex said she was so glad she participated and had "a lot of fun"! We came into the night not knowing what to expect, and would gladly participate again!
My only suggestion would be to remind parents to bring a chair....there was no seating available at this location.
Great job, and thanks again for all of your very prompt answers to my pre-session questions! We are looking forward to hearing from Julia regarding Alex's feedback.
I took part in the Volleyball Factory tryout in Lenexa, KS. My tryout number was 7. I would just like to thank you all for your time and instruction last Friday, it was incredibly helpful and much appreciated. I really hope to be seeing more of you and receiving more of your help in the future. Thank you again for your time and sharing some of your knowledge with me, also please thank the other coaches for me. Thanks!
Thank you for getting me into the Lake Placid clinic. It was a ton of fun. I learned a lot. Even though it was a 9 hour drive, it was totally worth it. I did hurt my knee on Saturday though, but I was able to play on Sunday. I did receive an email from Henderson State and Morgan State. I will happily add them to my list of colleges and check them out. Again thank you for the awesome opportunity and I hope to hear from you soon.
Two of our players last year went and they said they had a great time and so far their skill level has increased. They took their high school all the way to become Conference Champions. So good luck with these players. Hopefully a few of them will take care and continue on with the training.
