OEP

Under the direction of Outdoor Directors, Molly Dean and John Rodgers, current members of High Performance programs will have a complimentary Outdoor Extension Program provided at no additional cost. Yes, a FREE Program! The OEP will have the opportunity to develop ALL 6 skills compared to the indoor game where players routinely specialize in 2-3 skills.  Players exposed to the outdoor game not only enjoy themselves by playing outside in the fresh air, but are challenged with more volleyball touches, more movement, increased communication, and a completely different style of play that pushes their comfort zone and encourages growth of their indoor game. 

Not a member of High Performance and want to join OEP? 
If you are not on a High Performance team and you would still like to participate in the Outdoor Extension Program please contact one of our directors, Molly or John, for details. Non-members can join for an additional fee.

Outdoor Program

As part of their membership with HPSTL, players on our teams will have a one month program which will provide investigatory instruction & competition related to the outdoor beach game.  During that time, players will participate in 2 practice sessions per week. This program will focus more on game time decision-making skills which will help open the minds of our players to think differently about their own game, their competition, and the environment in which they are playing. Players will be grouped with their indoor teammates for the duration of the program.

Under the direction of Outdoor Directors, Molly Dean and John Rodgers, HPSTL players will have the opportunity to participate in OEP at NO ADDITIONAL CHARGE. Players will have the opportunity to develop ALL 6 skills compared to the indoor game where players specialize in 2-3 skills.  Players exposed to the outdoor game not only enjoy themselves by playing outside in the fresh air, but are challenged with more volleyball touches, more movement, increased communication, and a completely different style of play that pushes their comfort zone and encourages growth of their indoor game. 

We believe this program will provide new challenges that will push our athletes and offer them a special development opportunity never before seen in the St. Louis area. We want your child to be a part of it!
