Playing at Front Range set me up for a successful life. It was the first and last club I played for growing up and I wouldn’t trade my experience there for anything in the world. They transformed me from an unathletic 11-year-old into a Divison 1 record-breaking athlete. Along with the amazing physical and mental training I received for the game of volleyball, I also learned valuable lessons in time management, teamwork and perseverance that carried over to the other facets of my life. It is so important to learn these lessons early on because it really sets you up well for the bigger milestones later on in life. I attribute my successful volleyball and academic career to the many years I dedicated at Front Range. These days, I am still actively pursuing a professional volleyball career after finishing a great career at Northeastern University. I will also graduate with my Doctorate in Physical Therapy this May.
“Front Range Volleyball Club changed my life because the atmosphere taught me about positive attitude, work ethic, and what it takes to win. It not only made me a better volleyball player, but I also grew as a person and it is something that I will be forever grateful for.”
“Front Range offers an unparalleled combination of world-class coaches, practice facilities (state of the art flooring, weight room, video equipment, etc.), and training regimens. The overall training (speed, agility, quickness) and intense focus on volleyball fundamentals and techniques (a variety of drills for serving, passing, blocking, etc.) turned my daughter into an all-around and complete volleyball player. Her technical abilities increased at a phenomenal rate. She took advantage of all the mandatory as well as optional training offered. The coaches are always willing to put in extra time with any player.”
“I played at Front Range for four years in high school and those were probably the most influential four years in shaping my future. Front Range saw the potential in me I would have never seen in myself. They helped me recognize a dream of playing for a D1 school and then going on to play professionally. Front Range gave me the skills to ignite my passion for volleyball and take my mental and physical game to a level I never thought I could reach. I still use the disciple, leadership, and mental toughness skills we learned at Front Range every single day.”
“Playing at Front Range was honestly one of the best and most impactful decisions of my life. I would not be where I am today without the dedication and passion of the coaches I had and the skills I learned there. Not only did I learn the skills of volleyball at the highest level, but I learned how to be mentally tough, disciplined, and competitive, and I developed a work ethic that will carry with me through the rest of my life. I was fully prepared, if not more prepared than most of my teammates, to enter a Division I program and continue to use what I learned and develop it further in my collegiate career. I’m currently playing my second season professionally overseas which comes with many challenges I would not have been ready to endure without Front Range. I am the person I am because of this club and am very thankful for it!”
“From our perspective, the difference between playing at Front Range vs any other club is like having the chance to study at an Ivy League school or going to a community college. In both places you will get a degree, but her chances of achieving her full potential as an athlete and as a person are much greater at Front Range.
Our daughter played at another club for years. Our decision to join Front Range was not made lightly; since it involved a one hour commute each way through Denver. It was the right decision for us because the quality of the coaching was so far above anything else that we found in the state. When we started at Front Range, our daughter was a good volleyball player with potential. She became an All American athlete who was recruited by top college programs all over the country. She made the USA team for her age and was able to travel to Turkey to compete in the world championship. We are eternally grateful to Jim Miret and the other coaches at FRVBC, as we fully know that she would have never reached this level of play without them.”
