Welcome to Renegades Volleyball Club!!
ANNOUNCING...there's a new partnership at Renegades Volleyball Club!
We would like to welcome Shanon "WADDY" as a partner of Renegades and we couldn't be more excited about what lies ahead for our club! We feel that our club is now stronger than ever and the possibilites are endless. We look forward to constant growth within the club and can't wait to see where this road leads...Please congratulate and welcome Waddy as a new partner at Renegades Volleyball Club!
At Renegades Volleyball Club, we offer area volleyball players the chance to improve their skills and help them attain their personal goals. Our club travels and plays in tournaments in and around Texas as well as competes against teams at qualifying events from all over the United States.
Renegades Volleyball Club does not strive to be the biggest, best or winningest club. We seek to be the best for the individual player who commits to herself, the team and the club. During our most recent season, the 2012-2013 season, we assisted ALL 8 seniors in our club with receiving college scholarships. During the 2011-2012 season, we assisted all 4 of our eligible seniors in obtaining their dream & playing at the college level, via scholarships! During the 2010-2011 season, we assisted 11 out of 14 eligible & willing seniors in obtaining college scholarships...our FIRST YEAR to train this age level at Renegades. Not a bad record...AND THAT IS WHY RENEGADES IS ONE OF THE TOP CLUBS IN THE GREATER HOUSTON AREA!
We support the philosophy that when the player achieves personal success and the team works together, the wins will follow!
R~Respect yourself, your teammates, your coaches, opponents and the game.
E~Enjoy your time on the court. After all, it is a game.
N~Never give up, quit or accept defeat.
E~Eliminating errors is the key to winning.
G~Guts and Glory ~ without them, you've got nothing.
A~Always work hard to improve your last performance.
D~Dedication, Determination, loyalty, commitment and sportsmanship will allow you to prevail.
E~Excuses are unheard of and are for those who know they are going to lose.
S~Strive to be the absolute best you can be!
10 Guidelines for Being a Positive Player-Parent
(from Volleyball USA, Winter 2000)
1. Cheer your player on, be supportive of her, console her, but do it without judging her, the coach, officials or teammates.
2. Many things will aggravate you that do not even faze your player. Do not make something into an issue if it is not an issue.
3. Encourage your child to seek her own answers. Coaches respect players who come to them and privately question their playing time or role; it immediately indicates they want more.
4. Understand the rules of the game and the coaches philosophy. Substituting in volleyball has consequences.
5. Do your physical part as a parent. Get your child to practice on time and pick them up promptly. Demonstrating responsibility and commitment can be incredibly effective.
6. Positions and talent sometimes do not match up. Coaches attempt to do what's best for the team, putting the best physical mix and best "chemistry" on the floor. That may mean that sometimes your daughter may be playing "out of position" in an attempt to strengthen the team. A positive spin by you can go a long way in helping your child adjust to a new role. Stay positive, and maybe your child will flourish.
7. If you have real concerns, and your player has attempted unsuccessfully to work things out with the coach on her own, schedule a meeting with the coach and have your child attend with you (you may not be hearing the whole story - a common occurrence). If you are trying to resolve a problem, help your player by being a role model in the problem solving procedure.
8. Never approach a coach with complaints after a tough game. Wait and schedule a visit after everyone cools off. Most coaches are highly competitive, and just like players, do not like being confronted after tough games.
9. Please think before criticizing anyone connected with your player's club or team. Criticism is contagious and often hurtful. The damage could be irreversible.
10. Visibly show that you enjoy watching your child perform; this will make her feel better about individual participation, no matter what the role is.
