Congratulations to coach Karen Schmitz who received the 2018 USA Volleyball Junior Assembly Service Award for Outstanding Female Coach on behalf of the Service Award Committee. Karen will receive her award via a banquet in Dallas, Texas on May 23rd. We are extremely proud of Karen and are so excited to have her working with our kids at High Performance. She continually makes a difference club-wide as she paves the way for our 8-10s program to learn, grow, and most importantly love the game of volleyball. Karen has been coaching in St. Louis for 41 years and has spent about half of those years at the club level. Thank you for your dedication to this sport and these kids, Karen!
This past weekend the St. Louis Convention Center hosted the annual girls’ President’s Day Classic, and our High Performance teams made a dominant impact! We had over half of our teams placing in the top 10 and 7 of them medaling, and to top it off 18 Orange won the Premier division and 13 Orange won the Club division. We had the highest finishes of all Gateway Region teams at the 11s, 15s, 16s, 17s, and 18s age groups. Now our girls travel teams are getting ready and excited for their qualifying season! Tune in next week for updates on our Boys at their St. Louis bid event.
