"The only thing that seperates a successful volleyball player
from the ones that aren't is a willingness to work very, very
hard. We have been producing these type of players since 1987."
CLUB INFORMATION REGARDING WEATHER
In the event of bad weather practice may or may not be canceled. If weather conditions in your area prohibit safe travel, players should NOT go to practice. Players are responsible to contact their coaches to report the absence. If coaches are unable to make it to practice, we will cancel the session and post this information to the club website. Posting will be made no later than one hour prior to the start of practice.
In the event weather conditions prohibit players from attending a tournament, they are to call and email (both) their respective coach prior to 6:00am on the day of the tournament to report their absence. Coaches will confirm with the remaining players on the roster, that there will be enough players to compete (we do not want to have less than 6 players arrive in Indy for the tournament and discover they do not have enough players on their team to compete.)
Historically in the past, tournaments have never been canceled due to weather. Teams that can attend are realigned and the tournament goes on. Safety must be taken into consideration when inclement weather occurs. Individual families must contact their coach if they feel that travel is unsafe and they will not be able to attend. (Note: Tournament entry fees are paid in advance and are not refunded to teams who do not attend. Tournament billing to players will not be adjusted due to weather conditions.)

Brigitte Slack -
After a seven year career with the Fort Wayne Volleyball Club and leading her high school team to the IHSAA State Finals, Brigitte went on to become an award winning setter for the University of Alabama. Slack finished out her Alabama career as the program's all-time assists leader with 5,578, more than a 1,000 better than second place. All four of her single-season assists totals rank among the Tide's top-10. She also ranked in the Southeastern Conference's top-10 as a sophomore, junior and senior. Following her career at Alabama Brigitte spent three years as a professional volleyball player with teams in Germany and Denmark. We welcome her back home to the Fort Wayne VBC as she joins our staff to coach the 9/8/7 level and assist other teams.
