2018-19 Tryouts & New Direction

Hello club, a few announcements today. We just want to acknowledge some teams from last season. We had several teams finish with winning records and did well at regionals (14-1 made gold bracket and finished 9th out of 100 teams, 17-1 made gold bracket, 16-1 made bronze finals and 15-1 reached bronze semis). More important, we saw significant improvements in a lot of players this season. However, we can get better, and hope to build on our success this coming season. 

We hope everyone had a great summer and doing well in their school season. Club season will be here before you know it and Spike is starting it's 22nd season this year. The tryouts date is TBD as we are solidifying the location. But you should mark your calendars for Sunday October 14th for 14 and under and Sunday October 21st for 15 and above at John Overton High School. Details and age group times can be found here. We hope to see everyone return and please tell anyone else you want to play with about Spike.

And lastly, this year Spike will have a new director. Two of them actually. Emily Bean and Jay Dorsey will be taking over Spike. Former director Jay Umboh will stay on the board as an adviser. Emily and Dorsey runs the Vollis Beach Volleyball program out of Hermitage TN and have extensive volleyball coaching and training experience. Emily has been a head coach with Spike Volleyball the past few years and know the program well. Both are excited about the opportunity and will do a great job with the kids. Keep an eye out for updates, and see you all at tryouts!

Spike Beach Volleyball and Vollis Beach 2017

Spike is excited to announce that we are now offering a beach volleyball club season starting April 2017. We have secured a valuable partnership with Vollis Beach to help train our girls. Vollis Beach is led by director Jay Dorsey, a former NFL player turned volleyball player, who is a trainer and one of the best beach player in Nashville. Vollis beach have three new sand courts in the Hermitage area. Dorsey will hold an informational meeting between our practice on Sunday March 12, 2017, at 6:00PM, at Overton HS: 4820 Franklin Rd, Nashville, TN 37220. This meeting is open to everyone. You don't have to be part of Spike to attend. Please spread the word, come join us and bring a friend.

Beach volleyball is a two person game that will help athletes with their overall volleyball skills and conditioning. With the success of our USA beach volleyball teams in the Olympics, and with colleges now offering beach volleyball scholarships, the sport is gaining even more in popularity. Hope to see everyone in the sand this summer!

Some Pics From Last Season

Found a few pics from last season and thought I'd post them. Very proud of all the teams. I think each one improved and had some success. Congrats to the 13U. They came in 2nd a few times and finally broke through and won a tournament near the end of season and finished 5th over all in the Club Regionals in Atlanta! 14U made semis in a big tourney, 16U came in 2nd in a tourney, and 17U made semis in a tourney and won a lot of games against good competition. We had a great time! Thanks to all the coaches for their hard work. Can't wait for next season to get started. See you all soon! If anyone has pics from the season email it to me and I will post. Also keep an eye out on our tryout date. It's TBA but it should be around late November 2016.
