What do we BELIEVE?

Growth mindset

Having a growth mindset means that you recognize skill and abilities can be developed. Athletes and coaches work together to cultivate a growth mindset and view events as challenges rather than threats.

motor learning

The science of motor learning reveals a number of flaws in the “traditional” approach to athlete development. Non-linear pedagogy, ecological dynamics, and constraints based learning are fancy terms to suggest we’re interested in utilizing the best methods to support learning and retention.

s

Chaos

Applying the principles of Growth Mindset and Motor Learning will create a little chaos, confusion, and ugliness. But, they will also help to develop better, more well-rounded players who are prepared to perform when it matters most. We don’t practice to look good in practice. 

What’s different about Momentum Volley?

believe | accelerate | grow

We believe that we have assembled an outstanding core of like-minded community members, who are committed to providing quality learning & training opportunities for young athletes and their families.

What’s in your “b-a-g”?

Right next to the smelly kneepads, socks, and sweaty shirts… we want to stuff it full of belief. The belief that new challenges can be overcome, that you are a powerful learning machine, and that feeling uncomfortable when attempting a new task might just mean you’re on the right path.

Together we want to pack quality training opportunities into your “bag” by applying training methods and providing healthy, competitive experiences that accelerate your development.

And finally, we are grateful for the opportunity to work with today’s youth and feel that they are the best investment communities can make.
By doing so, we grow together.
