WE WILL BE HAVING AN INFORMATIONAL MEETING ON THURSDAY, APRIL 14 AT 7PM, St. Mark Presbyterian Church, FLC (Gym) Room 107. 208 W. Bandera Rd. Boerne



A Message from Hill Country Volleyball Director, Pat Stangle:

At Hill Country Volleyball, our mission is to provide the highest quality volleyball training possible, teaching players to play the game the right way, from the beginning.

Having coached volleyball for over 24 years, with stints at the highest level of Division 1, I have had the opportunity to train, coach against and observe some of the greatest minds our sport has to offer. I’m excited to bring that experience and knowledge to the youth of Boerne and the Hill Country.

I will personally oversee the development of each and every player, as well as every team, in our program. Alongside each coach, I will meticulously plan all training sessions. Each practice will begin with the teaching/training  of the fundamentals of volleyball, followed by a progression to small group training, finishing with wash drills and games, the way the game is supposed to be played: 6 on 6. All under the watchful eye of experienced coaches.

The main issue in the proper development of any player is transfer. Does the skill and/or drill transfer to the game itself? Introducing artificial conditions inhibits a players ability to develop and improve. Anything less than 6 on 6 limits transfer.  As such, teams will consist of 13 players: Two Setters, Three Middle Hitters, Five Pin (OH/Opp) Hitters and Three DS/Liberos.

Every coach in our club will be on the same page, teaching and training the same techniques, fundamentals, systems and philosophy  This is critical in the development of young players. Seeing and hearing multiple forms of feedback, from multiple sources, is confusing and impedes a players progress. Players in our gym will receive consistent feedback from multiple coaches, all with the same goal in mind…helping them improve.

At Hill Country Volleyball, our passion is GOOD VOLLEYBALL. We will purposely limit the number of teams in our club, in order to remain relatively small, allowing us to invest more time in each and every player in our program.

There are many options out there when it comes to club volleyball. Explore them all. Each is unique in it’s own way. If your goal is to train at the highest level possible, Hill Country Volleyball just might be the home for you.
