Dear AZ Sky Families,

      Lastly, DT and I thank all of you for entrusting your daughters in our care for club, it is a privilege that we do not take lightly and we work very hard to exceed your expectations in all aspects of club volleyball. We take a different approach in that we believe in developing the overall student athlete, body, mind and spirit. Developing integrity, humility, strong work ethics, leadership skills, teamwork and sportsmanship are equally as important as mastering fundamentals. We promote service and academic success along with team preparation for competition, so that our athletes have greater opportunity on the court and in life.
      AZ Sky is a work in progress and we will continue to strive for excellence. We will make decisions based on core values with our student athletes in mind. We look forward to the 2014 club season and we will provide several pre-season clinics and an Open House this fall before tryouts.
      I am proud to call myself the Director of AZ Sky Volleyball Club and I thank each and every one of you for your support and friendship throughout the year. Enjoy the remainder of summer and good luck to all of our student athletes trying out for school programs in August.
Many Thanks,
