Our Goal

Developing the younger athlete and allowing them to mature into an excellent volleyball player is our goal. Asics Willowbrook is a true training facility that stresses consistent teaching of technique and strategy across all teams and age groups. We train each athlete the same way from the age of 10 to 18. Each year in our program, she will advance her skills by learning more advanced techniques that build on what she has already learned.

Being an Asics Willowbrook player is more than just being part of a volleyball team: it’s being part of an elite group of girls, all ages, that have the same goals! Each girl will form bonds with other players, find positive mentors, meet her next best friend, and above all, HAVE FUN! She will learn good fundamental skills, and at the same time she will find out what self-discipline, confidence and leadership is all about! And if she works hard and stays with the program, she can excel at the sport of volleyball.

What makes this Developmental League different from other volleyball programs, such as YMCA or a local sports association?

While those programs can be fun, they also have their flaws. Many times the coaching is inadequate, and there is no consistent training methodology. Without good coaching, you will find that each successive year brings more poor skills and bad habits that must be torn down, so that proper skills can be learned in their place. Plus, there are many programs out there that have no capital investment other than a few dozen volleyballs.

Do you want a band-aid for your daugther’s current volleyball techniques? Or do you want to start her on the right track, learning the correct fundamental techniques from the start that will allow her to play at a high skill level?

Our idea is simple -- Each year, we will build consistent skills in young athletes by ensuring that every one of our coaches teaches "the Willowbrook Way" under the direction of our Training Directors.
