"The Alabama Performance Difference"

Our Club Director Julie Dailey has over 35 years of coaching experience. Alabama Performance team coaches have either been highly successful college volleyball players, college coaches and/or have finished over 100 hours of Alabama Performance coaching certification. All coaches in our program are 'Impact Certified', 'Sports Performance Coaches Program Certified' and will have completed 40 hours of 'Alabama Performance Coach Development'. We have highly specialized coaches with an extensive background in volleyball as well as a minimum of 400 hours of coaching known as "Master Coaches". We have five master coaches in the gym with your child at any given practice. Your child will receive correct fundamental training with an emphasis on the technical aspects of each individual skill. Our coaches are trained and experienced enough to correct technical issues and rebuild them correctly. Each team is assured a coach with an extensive physical and technical background who is able to prepare our athletes for the next step in their volleyball career. Players are taught team offensive and defensive schemes to have them completely prepared for high level national competition. There must be a “systematic” approach of instruction to training with large groups for personal as well as team growth, that is what Alabama Performance excels with.
