Next Level Girls Volleyball @ Notre Dame HS

Join us for our 2nd season of Next Level Girls Volleyball at Notre Dame High School in Belmont with Coach Jen Agresti and Coach Kimmie Washington! 

Next Level Girls Volleyball - Program Overview:

The Next Level Girls Volleyball program has been developed to provide aspiring volleyball players an opportunity to learn the basic skills and functions of competitive volleyball - at an introductory yet competitive level. Our program is aimed at the youth athlete who has 'some-to-none' exposure/experience with the game of volleyball yet would like to develop the core skills required to participate at a higher level in the future (club, middle school, high school). Our staff is comprised of current high school/club-level volleyball coaches who have taught the game to a wide variety of age groups - both at the more-casual level as well as the elite club and elite high school levels. As is traditional within Next Level, all teams will be mentored/coached with the assistance of a high school student-athlete involved within the game. 

This program is instructionally based yet will contain head-to-head game activity as a secondary focus.
