Big Changes at Uprising Volleyball in Mukilteo
The Summer of 2018 was a mixed bag for the Uprising Volleyball family. More athletes than ever before represented Uprising Volleyball at the AVPFirst National Championship in Hermosa Beach, all while the club was moving forward anticipating not having their indoor training facility for 2019. Summer season has ended and fall is just around the corner and with that is a second shot at building a year-round Uprising beach volleyball program with an indoor beach court to train at.
In early August a deal was reached that allowed Uprising Volleyball to keep their indoor beach court in Mukilteo. The deal did not include the hard court, so Uprising Volleyball is going back to being a 100% beach volleyball program featuring their year-round Beach Mastery Program along with leagues, clinics, camps, tournaments and more.
Here are three things that you want to know about the new programs at Uprising Volleyball.
1. We've added a new series of Foundation Skills clinics that will focus on the execution of individual technique. Each session will focus on a different foundation of the game, such as serving, passing, setting, reading, etc... with the intent of helping athletes to improve on both the beach and the hard court. Our foundation skills clinics will also include tryout prep sessions to help athletes get ready for Beach Mastery tryouts.
2. Our Beach Mastery program is changing formats to provide better training opportunities for committed beach volleyball athletes to prepare to play at the next level. The program will run in 12 week sessions with one and two night a week options available. Training groups will include up to eight players and athletes can come to the program as an individual or a team. Tryouts for the winter program are scheduled for October 13-14 at Uprising Volleyball in Mukilteo.
3. We're expanding opportunities for league and drop in play for both juniors and adults at Uprising Volleyball in Mukilteo. Our overall mission of building a beach volleyball hotbed in Snohomish County will be supported by opportunities for athletes of all ages and experience levels to get their toes in the sand.
