OUR PHILOSOPHY

Our main philosophical belief is that we want our players to be better teammates/people in the end as well as better volleyball players.  Athletics provide young athletes with excellent real-life situations and guidance without any real-life consequences.  We believe this is a fundamental element of participation with CCJ and Juniors Volleyball.  The competitive athletic experience can enhance social development, contribute to mental and physical health, as well as teach the values of teamwork, goal-setting, responsibility, self-discipline, and self-motivation.

OUR GOAL

The Club Cactus Juniors coaching staff thrives on training athletes from the entry level player to the elite athlete.  We want our athletes to be able to compete at the highest level possible, whether it is working to make their freshman volleyball team, winning a State championship, winning a national championship, or aspiring to play in college.

Our primary goal is for our athletes to learn to compete and behave as winners; while the goal of winning should be a by-product to the process.
