In 2016 San Clemente Volleyball Club worked with One Degree Leadership to provide Leadership training for our girls program. Through experiential learning activities, players were given the opportunity to gain insight on on their personality types, how to overcome fears and anxieties, the different forms of communication and what it means to be authentic leaders. "I realize now what an impact sports had on my life growing up. Not only did I learn how to be dedicated and work hard, I learned about myself and how to get along with people in a team setting", says Director Jen Beard. "It's my passion to give back and to inspire these young athletes to have a strong voice and to learn how to be the best they can be on and off the court". The lesson they learn here will serve them in all their relationships and will give them an advantage in future job settings. We are sensitive to the stress that teenagers are faced with today. At San Clemetne Volleyball Club we aim to provide an environment where players feel safe to learn and grow, it's esential to achieving the highest level of athletic acheievement and the confidenc and pride earned from such efforts is immeasurable.
