- This is Breaker's inaugural year as a girls program. Why should we choose Breaker over other reputable clubs in the area?
Yes, we understand that this is our first year as a girls program and that we do not have the history that other clubs may have. However, all great things must start somewhere! We have talented Directors and an impressive coaching staff eager to see their players succeed, both on and off the court. We have big goals and would love for your family to be part of it!
What are Breaker's future goals?
Breaker strives to be the premier volleyball club in the Chicagoland area. Our goals are to consistently compete on the national stage and provide our players with an elite volleyball experience that will set them up for future success. All the decisions we make reflect these goals.
- What is Breaker's playing time policy?
Breaker is dedicated to providing all athletes with equal attention and opportunity to improve during practices. However, we are a competitive program. Therefore, we believe playing time is earned, no given, to the athletes. Multiple variables are considered when creating lineups: practice attendance, effort, growth, skill level, attitude, etc. We trust our coaching staff to consider all variables when making their lineups.
- How does Breaker approach practices?
We believe that practices offer our players opportunities to improve and those improvements are showcased during tournaments. Improvement is an individualized learning process. Our practices are designed to push players outside their comfort zones, increasing their physical skills and mental understanding of the game. We believe that continually raising the bar and expectations are how players grow and develop over the course of their careers.
- Who is responsible for running the practices?
Directors Stephanie Holthus and BJ Boldog are Breaker's "lead trainers" and are responsible for creating practice plans and running all practices. Their extensive playing resumes and coaching experience allow Breaker to offer all its players (Premier and Regional programs) an elite training program unmatched by others.
What other programs does Breaker offer throughout the year?
We offer players amble opportunity to improve their volleyball skills throughout the year. Therefore, on top of our National / Regional teams, we offer numerous programs throughout the year:
- Summer / Holiday Camps
- Private / Group Lessons
- Sand Volleyball (coming summer, 2018)
Dues / Payments
All clubs offer different experiences, therefore, pricing varies between clubs. Our prices are a reflection of our talented coaching staff, competitive practice schedule, and tournaments Breaker teams compete in. We strive to offer a high-level volleyball experience for all our athletes, and we believe you will see the value in our product, separating us from other clubs in the area.
