Houston Prime Athletics Core Values:
We are a very technical club as we focus on the fundamental skills of volleyball. We Train Hard and we love what we do. The training methods we use are consistent throughout the ages but adapted based on the level of each player. We use a mixture of International and Collegiate Training techniques that we have seen to be successful in the club realm. The Director will host coaching clinics throughout the year to prep all coaches before the season starts.
We emphasize individual techniques and growth. For an athlete to reach their full potential, it is important that they are technically sound in their fundamental skills so they can help their team be successful. We will train all athletes to be well rounded players to increase versatility and add value to the team.
We want our athletes to buy into the process of growing together so we can give continuity to the work. It is crucial that our athletes stay loyal and fully engaged with the learning process and the club family.
Volleyball is a sport and it’s a game; so, it is important to us that our athletes also learn how to have fun and enjoy the game while also being competitive. We want to maintain the foundation of JOY- for the game and for the competition.
We are committed to ensuring that all of our athlete’s have a positive experience that will increase their love for the game. We focus on the process over results. Our priority is to improve and give each athlete the discipline, feedback and all of the tools they will need to help them improve on the court and in life. Our coaches are mentors, role models, and above all, teachers. They all carry our core values and understand the importance of their role and the impact they have on the athletes' lives.
Houston Prime Athletics is a family. We get to know our players so we can better coach them. We value each athlete and their families. We understand the sacrifices made and we take that very seriously. We appreciate the honor given to us by our families as they entrust their children to us, and we give that trust back.
We are committed to focus on QUALITY over QUANTITY. We believe that limiting the number of teams allows us to focus more on the athletes and better maintain our attention on the details, providing the highest quality club volleyball experience possible. We can then ensure that every team will also have well-qualified coaches. We like to encourage athletes to choose to BE THE REASON, DO NOT just be a number in someone's organization.
Houston Prime Athletics' teams are formed based on different levels. We expect a high level of commitment from everyone involved with the club and we will always look for athletes who want to work hard to be the best volleyball players and people they can be. Our Staff is also commitment to work tirelessly to build highly successful teams and athletes.
We believe it is important to develop the athlete as a whole. For an athlete to be able to perform at a high level you also must consider their complete wellbeing.
