WHAT IS IT?
The TK Volleyball Academy program is a revolutionary new concept in volleyball training. It is designed with the specific intent of training all levels of athlete from the beginner to the D1 collegiate player. Furthermore, no matter what skill level they are, every athlete will be challenged by training with athletes of a similar level, or a level or two higher if their coaches feel they’re ready for the added difficulty.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
The first step is an evaluation. This process is conducted at our state-of-the-art facility by one of our award-winning coaches. You will be taken through a series of drills that assess everything from your feet to your fingertips – and that includes your brain. Once the evaluation is complete, you will be assigned a level or rank – like a martial arts belt. That level will come with a list of proficiencies and where you stand with them. It will also come with a list of requirements you must meet to move to the next level.
HOW AND WHEN DO I TRAIN?
Once you have completed an assessment and have your rank, you will enter a six to eight week training cycle with a written curriculum and list of anywhere from 12 to 20 classes per month available to athletes at your level. This means that when you sign up and attend a class, you know that every athlete in that class has been through the same evaluation process and has been assessed at essentially the same skill level as you.
IS IT JUST SKILLS TRAINING?
No! Fridays are Academy Fun Days where we open up the gym to the levels to participate in 6 v 6 scrimmages and put all those hard-earned skills to the test...
HOW DO I ADVANCE?
Testing will occur at the end of each training cycle and those who have met the standards required will advance to the next level.
WHAT IF I ALREADY PLAY CLUB OR HIGH SCHOOL VOLLEYBALL?
Because The TK Volleyball Academy would like to work with the athlete during both high school and club seasons, the sessions are 60-75 minutes long and are extremely specific to the level of player and to the Academy course curriculum in each session. This is not a high-impact, high-stress environment. Rather it is designed to be used in conjunction with the athlete's school and club program and will utilize a system of communication where the athlete's respective club and school coaches can work WITH the Academy instructors.
WHAT AGES? IS IT JUST FOR GIRLS?
The TK Volleyball Academy program is for all athletes – boys and girls – ages 5-18.
IS IT JUST VOLLEYBALL?
No, the TK Volleyball Academy will also offer add-ons (at additional costs) like Strength and Conditioning classes custom tailored to the volleyball athlete. We are also working on having seminars where athletes can learn things like leadership, time management, study habits, mental toughness, stress management, scouting, coaching…etc. Our goal is to become a place where athletes learn to be athletes and people – not just volleyball players.
HOW MUCH DOES IT COST? DO I HAVE TO PAY FOR EACH CLASS?
The TK Volleyball Academy program will function much like a gym membership. An athlete will pay a monthly fee of $200 and have access to an unlimited number of classes within their skill level. The initial evaluation will take from 60 to 90 minutes and the cost for that session is $50. Once an athlete has been evaluated, they will receive their assessment and be offered an opportunity to commit to the TK Volleyball Academy Program.
HOW TO I PARTICIPATE?
The TK Volleyball Academy is unlike any other training environment anywhere. We are thrilled to be the innovators of this and hope you all come experience our revolution in volleyball training!
