Rick Huls, 22 year coach with the Fort Wayne Volleyball Club will retire following the 2015 AAU National Championships next week. Words cannot express our appreciation for all he has done for our program and the impact he has made on our players. A veteran coach in the Fort Wayne area for over 30 years, he has been an incredible role model for our players along with a master teacher in the sport of volleyball. He will be greatly missed. Rick plans are to spend more time closer to his family and continue his love for golf and outdoor activities. We wish him the very best and more.

Many thanks to all the parents/players who donated to our annual can food drive. Your thoughts and efforts are much appreciated.
"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."
