The Regional Program will be a great opportunity for families to choose the right program for their family. This program will have a fixed cost (no additional fees), a shortened season (December 1- March 31), competes locally (less school and work conflict), and provides the same great training that has made Nebraska Elite the top club in Nebraska. Regional teams will practice twice a week, compete in competitive USA sanctioned tournaments, and our 13-17U teams will also compete in the ASICS President's Day Tournament. The addition of the regional program will offer more opportunities for players to train for prep volleyball and potentially a scholarship someday. Between our Youth Development Program and our National Level Program, the Elite pipeline will now offer players and families to pick the program that best meets their needs and goals. Read more.

As we evaluated the programming we offer, it became clear that we had a problem. We need to do a better job of offering programs that match the needs of our community. Read more.

Many of the families in our club have multiple children participating in club sports. Some have multiple children playing club volleyball. Parents want to give each child the same opportunities to excel in the activities their children love. However, club is expensive. Read more.
When we were growing up, an athlete could play multiple sports and still have time to spend with family and friends. In today’s sporting world, athletes are encouraged to focus on one sport. Many athletes maintain a schedule as challenging as a CEO of a company. I can only imagine how this affects the family schedule. It takes a special athlete to passionately engage in one sporting commitment from the time the athlete is two through college. Not every athlete is Tiger Woods. We want to empower multi-sport athletes by offering a club experience designed for them. Read more.
