Welcome, Erin, to the NORCO Coaching Staff!
I am originally from Lincoln, Nebraska where I coached high school volleyball at Lincoln Pius X (6-time state champion), club volleyball for Nebraska Juniors (4-time JNQ Open Championships & two AAU Open National Championship Top 5 finishes), and college volleyball at Doane University for two years (finishing top 15 in the country). I’ve been lucky enough to work with and learn from some incredible coaches in my career and help develop some of the most elite volleyball players in Nebraska. I am extremely excited to be able to continue doing so in Colorado.
My full-time job is teaching the game of volleyball (all skills) to players of all ages through individual and group lessons, specialized camps and clinics, high school camps, and coaching the Norco 17 Black team in the upcoming 2017-2018 season. I can be reached anytime via email firstname.lastname@example.org or by cell 402-770-0200.
Congratulations to Mackenzie Fidelak of 18 Black! Mackenzie was named to Prep Volleyball's All-American 3rd Team for her performance at Nationals this summer. Congratulations, Mackenzie!

NORCO Prep is the perfect opportunity for someone who loves to play volleyball, but cannot make the full commitment to Club volleyball. The emphasis of this program will be on skill development and game play. This is a great program to either get a first exposure to the sport or to get better and improve on skills outside of a school team, without the full schedule of USAV volleyball. With one practice a week and three tournaments, the commitment is less for those with busy schedules. The coaching and training will still be intense so all players improve!
Practices will start October 26th and run every Thursday through mid-February (excluding Thanksgiving and Christmas week). The Prep teams will participate in three tournaments throughout the season.

Our focus is more than volleyball and our qualified coaches strive to teach young men and women how to be successful. Every year, we hope to instill lasting impressions on these players that they will carry with them for a lifetime. Club Volleyball is a tool that teaches young men and women how to face difficult circumstances where they are forced to be uncomfortable and pushed to balance school, life, family, and volleyball. This is a challenge for every young adult and a necessary part of preparing for the next stages in life.
