Upward Stars Upstate

Stars Volleyball REGIONAL teams overview

Upward Stars is committed to 100% developmental, growth and maturity of our young players in the sport of volleyball and in life through our unique 360 Progression. Here at Upward Stars we strive to develop the players in four key categories...

  • Mentally- Deeper understanding of the game and how to make right choices on and off the court while learning to read the ball and each other. (Proactive)

  • Athletically- Developing in physical strength, agility, coordination, stamina, and skill set.

  • Spiritually- Anyone can lead when it's easy-who's willing to lead when it's hard? At Upward Stars we use a curriculum that has been widely accepted to help develop our young athletes in character, faith, and relationships.

  • Socially- Learning to be a team player while encouraging others around you.

Our goal is to make sure our REGIONAL level athletes aspire to the levels of skill and competition that they are fully capable of reaching. Our goal is also not only to help our team in the game of volleyball, but also to help them reach towards their full potential in their lives as well as impact the lives of those around them. Our REGIONAL team coaching staff is made up of current and former athletes, high school, middle school coaches who understand what it takes to win at a high level while developing relationships that reach beyond the scoreboard.
