Take a group of former collegiate All-American and professional volleyball players who truly understand player development, and you have Pipeline Volleyball Club ... My daughter has greatly benefited from the top-notch team and positional training; but unlike other clubs, this group of coaches brings an extraordinary holistic mind-set of what it takes to be an ultimate athlete and compete at the highest levels of play.
— dawn , pipeline volleyball club parent
...The training at Pipeline is from top level coaches with both collegiate and professional experience. Not only do the athletes learn the game of volleyball but also focus on positional training, teamwork and strategy. The athletic development is outstanding and is instrumental in the muscle development, stamina and foot work necessary to play volleyball at a high level...

CULTURE


...It doesn’t matter which team a player is on, the coaches give instruction to all players to ensure each one excels. This sense of family leads the players to also encourage and mentor each other. Best of all, they have fun doing it. At Pipeline, they really live their motto: “Work Hard, Stay Humble”.
— Joan, Pipeline Volleyball club Parent
BJ’s attitude is the key to this club. He is completely invested and it shows in how he interacts with the players and teams. He cares about all levels, not just the Nike teams. It is only a matter of time before everyone will want to model their club after Pipeline.
— Bruce, Pipeline Volleyball Club Parent

COACHING STAFF


BJ Boldog and the staff at Pipeline are amazing. We were looking for a highly competitive club with a knowledgeable and experienced coaching staff. We found just that at Pipeline. Communication between parents and staff is stellar and the club was instrumental in helping our son commit to a Division I College.
— Jamie, Pipeline Volleyball Club Parent
...What sets Pipeline apart from our past club experience is ongoing, targeted feedback on specific actions my daughter can take – the implementation of that feedback not only improves her skills, it leads to her desired time on the court during tournaments.
Pipeline’s atmosphere is professional, positive, and fosters team cohesiveness. The Club communicates well-defined, clear expectations and prepares their athletes for college recruitment.

COMMUNICATION


...Last, the communication is the best that we have had from any volleyball club. It is set up to ensure that every parent and player is well informed of practices, tournaments or schedule changes. The staff is approachable and accessible. Overall, my daughter is looking forward to the continued development in her volleyball journey at Pipeline for several years to come.
— Jennifer, Pipeline Volleyball Club Parent
...Location was a factor as was communication and both were above and beyond the expectation. Would highly recommend PIPELINE to any parent considering club Volleyball.
