Skyline Club Amenities
Junior’s volleyball is a major investment in your child's life. Perhaps the most satisfying outcomes is to see your child play for the college or university of their choice. No junior’s club program is complete without informing both players and parents about the important topic of scholarships and college recruiting.
Skyline offers Recruiting Workshops for both players and parents that cover the “do’s” and “don’ts” of timely and effective communication with colleges and universities. Topics covered include different ways parents may videotape matches and how to construct recruiting videos. We set aside time to video athletes’ skills and design proper introductions for these tapes, and provide examples of various ways athletes can set up their profiles to make them appealing to college coaches. We recommend the recruiting workshop for all Skyline athletes regardless of the sport they may pursue in college. In addition to the workshops, our recruiting coordinator holds individual and group meetings throughout the season for further help and instruction.
Online Recruiting Database
Skyline has a one-of-a-kind recruiting database. The Contact Management Software is organized to collect important information about each athlete and may be used as each athlete’s online Contact Management Software for college recruiting activities. Included behind the athletes’ personal login are recruiting timelines, college comparison spreadsheets, articles on “Visits to Colleges,” templates for letters to college coaches, sample emails to colleges, and a comprehensive college search engine. Using their PDA, our coaches and staff are able to download each athlete’s information while court-side. These features and the database constitute an exceptionally powerful recruiting program that is unique to Skyline. No other club can boast comparable programs.
Player Profile Pages
Each year, Skyline develops profile pages containing information about each player such as awards, accomplishments, playing experience, vertical jump, a personal section, and the athlete's plans for her athletic career. The profile page will be posted on our website enabling each player to send it to the college coaches of their choice via email or by letter.
Team Bonding Training
In order to facilitate team cohesion and purpose, Skyline coaches organize specialized team training in early January. This training will consist of six (6) practices in three (3) days. The teams will be given difficult tasks and will be required to find solutions as a team. They will also set individual and team goals for the season.
