Welcome to the Most Distinct and Exciting Volleyball Club in the Region.



Instinct is led by 2 former professional and Olympic athletes. Our Head Trainer is a 2 time Brazilian Olympic volleyball player and renowned coach and clinician. We are a very competitive volleyball club and our philosophy is to emphasize sound fundamentals and provide individualized attention while training athletes for sports and life in general. We will bring exclusively to our athletes the best training processes in the world developed from our experiences as high level athletes and from our ongoing relationships with the top coaches and athletes in the world. We will also push our athletes mentally and strategically because we have faced and conquered every challenge they will face in their athletic careers. We have been there!!!

Instinct begins its 8th season in 2015-16. In only 3 years of existence, Instinct won a National Championship in 2010-2011 (17 Division) and finished 2nd in 2011-2012 (17s Division). We have qualified teams for Nationals every season. In 2014-2015, Instinct qualified 4 teams for Nationals, 2 of our teams won National Qualifiers, 12 Wild-MidEast Qualifier and 16 Wild-Show Me Qualifier, and our 12 Wild finished 3rd in the National Championship.

Our Head Trainer (2 time Olympian) and our director (former collegiate and professional athlete) have hired several coaches with international coaching experience to train our younger coaches and create consistency in training for our athletes across all age groups.
