One aspect of Tstreet that sets us apart from other clubs is our in-house Sports Performance program. This is one of the only strength & conditioning programs in Orange County that is unique and specific to volleyball. It is coached entirely by former professional volleyball players and certified personal trainers who coach at Tstreet, meaning that we can communicate with the athlete’s on-court coaches, understand the athlete’s specific strengths & weaknesses, and then come up with a plan to help them achieve their maximum potential.Last year was our first year with this program and it was so successful. Our 15-1s added an average of 2.5″ to their vertical jump in only 8 weeks. Our 17-1s saw 3 girls join the 10′ club after being promoted from 2s teams. Our girls jumped higher, hit harder, and outlasted other teams on days 3 of those long, physically demanding qualifiers. And, perhaps most importantly, we witnessed firsthand how the girls breathed, believed, battled and bonded over shared hard work, sweat, and smiles.We have a variety of team- and individual-based options this summer and look forward to working with your daughters/sons next season. We truly believe that the sky is the limit for our athletes and look forward to harder spikes, bigger blocks, and even more sick digs next season!
