Mission Statement

Empower young athletes to grow through discipline, commitment, and teamwork.

Program Philosophy

At Toledo Volleyball Club, we specialize in training volleyball skills, technique and game strategy to young athletes. As such, we continue to support & educate our coaches in teaching the game effectively. TVC strives to build a passion for the game of volleyball. High expectations and accountability are a priority in our gym but we acknowledge that our athletes are not professionals and promise to treat them like young women.   

Teamwork- At TVC we know that team chemistry adds to the success of a team. Camaraderie between the girls and between teams is very important to us; thus, we focus on this with team bonding exercises, support at tournaments, and in our training. Being called a great teammate is one of the greatest compliments a player can receive. Everything we do is about the team, not the individual. We win together, we lose together, and we grow together.  Our gym culture is loud, intense and fun! 

Volleyball IQ - For players 14 and under, we want to develop sound fundamentals and a passion for the game. The focus of these age groups is to build an understanding of game and enforce correct technique. Our goal is to prepare these young athletes for the next level, develop sound technique, and have a lot fun while doing it! For players 15 and older, TVC’s focus is to refine technique as we educate players on the skills and game strategy coach's desire at the next level, whether that level high school varsity and/or college. 

Competition- At TVC we embrace the competition that is naturally present in sport and life. We strive to teach our young athletes how to excel under pressure and train in an exciting, competitive practice atmosphere to raise the athlete’s composure and confidence on game day. When creating our teams’ tournament schedules, we are mindful to enter our teams in tournaments with strong competition and collegiate exposure. We train to win but measure our success on more than wins and losses.
