While many clubs use their name to describe the areas they serve, our name strives to represent our club philosophy:
P – Purpose - What are we doing, why are we doing it, and what is our purpose for doing it.
A – Attitude- A positive attitude regardless of the situation for all players and coaches.
C – Commitment – Commit to being the best person you can be for not only your teammates and coaches but for yourself! Commit to giving your best efforts in every aspect of the club.
We have a new location!
Harris County Community Center is the home of PAC Volleyball. It is a 42,000 square foot state-of-the-art facility. It has two air conditioned or heated volleyball courts, restrooms/locker rooms, several meeting rooms, and much much more.
We have new programs that are designed to celebrate you the player!
This season, we will have many unique celebrations that only other clubs can copy. We love celebrating diversity among our players, as well as support all their extra-curricular activities..
Holistic Approach/Servant Leadership Style Coaching:
We believe in helping and mentoring every player so they can become their best, not only on the court but off the court too - in the classroom and in life. We believe in uplifting each player and helping them become college ready if that is their goal. We do not believe in using fear or aggression to produce results from players. We aim for our atmosphere to be high energy and full of fun through competitive skill building drills.
We will be offering a very unique program that we will announce after commitment night. This offering is one that no other club around our area is offering.
What’s to hide?
We have an open door policy for all practices and scrimmages. We encourage parents to stop in and watch their daughters in action at any time.
We believe in having a family fun environment since you all are family once you join PAC Volleyball.
To help both players and parents better understand the selection process in a tryout, we have outlined some key things the PAC staff is looking for in a player:
First and for most, all player candidates must have an awesome, positive, energetic attitude. We look for drama free players. Our players will put their teammates first with the concept to better the ball and help make their teammates be good and look good in all aspect of the game. One of our goals is to teach the WE concept and not the ME, therefore we tolerate drama, or negative players.
Hitters: We want our hitters to be a triple threat on the court by being able to consistently hit in all front row positions: Outside, Middle, Right Side. Players should be able to run multiple routes in all positions. Players should know how to do various shots: tip, roll, swipe, cut, various tops spin speed. Proper defense/blocking footwork and the fastest movements at the net.
Defensive Specialists: We are looking for players who have the best technique, reads opponents early, verbalizes what they see, and has relentless pursuit to the ball. We decide when the ball touches the floor not the ball. Power/Speed movements to defensive positions. Works well with others and uses positive communication to narrate the game. Players have mastered all types of passing types.
Liberos: This position will be given to the player(s) that have high energy, who controls the court through leadership and positive communication while being able to read the court. This player will be the most consistent digger and passer and can make immediate adjustments to herself, her teams and team offense and defense. This player would be a backrow captain and extension of the coach.
Setters: Setters are able to use multiple concepts and decision making skills to create high percent point scenarios. Can set all routes. Knows how to dump, attack, jump set. Player has a vision for not only her team but is able to read opponents teams to create more scenarios for finishing points. Plays defense first and is the fastest to the ball to better the ball for attacking.
What does a typical tryout look like?
Since tryouts are close to parents and/or spectators we would like to provide an insight to what a PAC tryout would look like. Our program likes to challenge players to grow in the sport and get out of their comfort zone so we can 1) stop the plateauing process and 2) elevate their skills to a whole new level. During a tryout we will encourage players to go all out, play hard, take smart calculated risks, and think outside the box. Players could participate in timed drills so coaches can collect data all speed and agility. Players could participate in the one step approach test, two step approach test, 5-10-5 speed drill, ladder speed drill, ball rotation test, and ball power test. Players will be tested in their position based off court movement, touch ball consistency, and even attitude. Players need to keep in mind: we learn from our failures and mistakes so it's not about the error, it's about how fast you can recover from the error, if one is made.
