How do you lead a team that's seeded 89th in a field of 144 to a second-place finish in the AAU National Volleyball Championships? You start with a smart training and conditioning program, then add hard work, dedication, faith, focus and effort.
That's how Premier Volleyball Academy's Premier 17 Onitsuka Team [Maumee, Ohio], under the leadership of head coach Jodi Schramm, fought through the tournament last week, compiling a 13-2 match record and earning a spot on the finalists' podium. The team was also honored by having four of its players recognized as 2011 All-Americans: Maggie Halloran, Alaina Turner, Kelsey Lahey and Tara Heald.
Take your game to the next level, train like Premier, and learn how the Academy lives its motto, "Teaching Excellence–Inspiring Greatness," both in-season and out, by visiting STACK.com. The Academy's conditioning program is highlighted in our just-released 4th Annual STACK Summer Training Guide, which features an 8-week Strength Workout for Volleyball designed in collaboration with Coach Schramm.
