TVC Recruiting Services handed over to Varn & Hills and other fall notes

By LGleim, 08/24/17, 12:45PM EDT


Happy 'Fall' from TVC! It's such an exciting time around here to see our travel players & their families continue their growth & leadership as they get into a school schedule. We loving following our 250 athletes as best we can throughout the fall and would love to hear from you and/or post any pictures you send along!

This fall we--TVC Admin--are working hard to continue to improve and refine the services we provide. As we tackle the 'big' discussions, we also manage administrative work schedules--with only one full time paid employee on staff--to meet office coverage needs, organizational & facility demands, and volleyball gym time--which occurs mostly during evening hours. After two years heading up recruiting services, I will be handing over recruiting coordinator duties to Michael Varn & Michelle Hills. I've really enjoyed working with our recruitable age athletes and their families. It's been very rewarding to help assist families through this roller coaster ride that is recruiting. Whether they are just starting the process as U15 players or ready to commit at U17s or U18s, I'm constantly amazed at how vast & personal each journey is. I will greatly miss these interactions but needed to make this decision for my family. In addition to my office work and coaching hours, the evening & weekend availability I needed to hold in order to do recruiting services to the best of my ability was putting undue burden on my husband and young family. I'm very lucky to be involved in an organization and work for a Director, Michelle Hills, that not only puts family first in word but in deed as well.

Mike & Michelle are already working hard this fall as we begin the transition period to make sure our athletes and their families continue to get questions answered and the recruiting timeline support they need. If you or your athlete have questions before tryouts, please feel free to review our recruiting resources on the Player Info Page here and reach out via phone, office (419) 794-4656 or e-mail--Mike Varn & Michelle Hills. 

Mark your calendars! Our Fall Open House will be Sunday, October 22nd from 4:00p-6:00p. During this time you can visit our facility,  meet staff & coaches, and view 2018 season information including team fees, tentative coaching lists & travel schedules.
