2023 Next Level Volleyball Season - Monte Vista High School

Join us for our 5th season of Next Level Volleyball in Danville at Monte Vista High School! We are excited to get things back rolling with our Next Level Sports staff and Coach Sara Dukes-Johnson.

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 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.

General Registration is now open for any and all particpants.
