HPSTL is Now Offering a Hybrid Indoor/Outdoor Team Experience!!!

Hello Volleyball Players and Families!

High Performance STL-VBC is continually searching for ways to improve its existing presence in the volleyball community. Creating opportunities allows us to grow the game in the St. Louis area, train and increase our player’s volleyball skills, and provide additional opportunities for our players to pursue volleyball in college and beyond. We are offering the first club run Outdoor Program this season in the Gateway Region. High Performance STL-VBC recognizes the increased skill growth that playing the outdoor 2 vs 2 game has on the indoor game. By combining the outdoor game with the indoor game, a 'Hybrid' experience can offer a great new opportunity to our volleyball athletes development, it is with great pleasure that High Performance STL-VBC is introducing it’s inaugural HiP Hybrid Program!

HPSTL is truly excited to take on this unique idea to grow the game of volleyball in the STL area. HiP Hybrid will be a 15U & 16U Girls Junior Volleyball team that will take on the challenges of both outdoor and indoor volleyball. Utilizing the already successful High Performance STL-VBC staff and coaches, we are spearheading this new program with the intention of offering its players a full Indoor volleyball experience while preparing the team to transition to the Outdoor 2 vs 2 Beach game.

What will HiP Hybrid Program Offer?:

  • 4-5 Month Indoor Season (Dec.-April)
  • 3-4 Month Outdoor Season (March-June)
  • 2 Practices Per Week
  • 6-8 Indoor Tournaments
  • 2-4 Outdoor Tournaments & Leagues

2014-2015 Hybrid Indoor/Outdoor Tryout Registration

Throughout the indoor season the coaches will instruct indoor aspects of the game with a focus on complete player development, and a universal approach to positions. This approach will ensure all of our players are prepared to transition to the outdoor game. The coaches will also instruct outdoor aspects of the game to raise the volleyball I.Q. of the players. These are crucial elements of the HiP Hybrid Program. To accomplish this coaches will evaluate players strengths and weaknesses and find a balance of instruction to ensure complete player and skill development.

With the rapid growth of beach volleyball in universities across the USA, we believe our Outdoor and Hybrid programs only increase our athletes opportunities to play at the next level. College exposure to this growing sport will be a goal of this program. We are excited to take on this new challenge and we would like to offer this unique opportunity to you. Those interested in being a part of this program need to attend a tryout being held Sunday November 23rd at C4 Courts 12691 Conway Road, Saint Louis MO, 63141 from 12-1:30PM.
