Parent/Player Handbook


Cloud Peak Volleyball's mission is to create a place where players have a positive atmosphere and where athletes who want to be better volleyball players have the opportunity to reach their goals. Cloud Peak Volleyball is the vehicle that provides that opportunities for players to reach their PEAK. We exist to make a positive difference in the lives of our players. Our goal is to develop happy, healthy, and confident players and we strive to provide a safe, fun, and successful experience for every player. Cloud Peak Volleyball strives:

  • To establish an environment where dedicated coaches and supportive parents help young athletes to realize their potential in the sport of volleyball.

  • To set the standard for quality in teaching, training techniques, administration, and professional responsibility.

  • To prepare and then promote athletes for college and their next level aspirations for volleyball whether it is to advance in school or playing collegiate volleyball.

  • To teach athletes how to learn new things quickly and improve their focus on and off the court.

  • To cultivate pride and tradition in the program by creating an atmosphere where athletes will return each year, promote the sport, interact positively in their communities, and believe in the Cloud Peak Way.

  • To create an experience athletes will remember for the rest of their lives!


Cloud Peak Volleyball employs many coaching and counseling techniques that are designed to effectively accomplish our training goals. In general, these techniques fall into the following main methods:

  • Instruction - Learning to play volleyball, or any sport, requires the guidance of an experienced coaching staff who can communicate with the players to help them develop their fundamental and advanced skills in the sport.

  • Repetition - We believe that repetition of skills is necessary to master the sport. Our training techniques look to include every player extensively in each drill to increase the number of touches that they get in practice.

  • Feedback - We believe that player development is enhanced when coaches interact with the players by providing feedback. This feedback can come in many forms and may include both constructive criticism and positive reinforcement.

  • Competition - We believe our players must compete. Whether it be to make the program, the team, earn a starting position, or simply competing on their team, competition is at the core of what we do. We provide many opportunities to compete in practice and have an extensive tournament schedule for each program to fit the needs of our athletes. Players must earn their playing time through competition for their spot. Players are given opportunities every day to compete and learn a valuable life skill as well.


The first goal is to develop each individual player. This is accomplished in several ways. First, we strive to develop complete volleyball players that are taught all the skills of the sport. Second, we also focus on the development of self-discipline, dedication, and confidence in each athlete; qualities that will assist them as they progress through life.

The second goal is to develop our teams. We believe that learning to function in a positive team environment is one of the most useful life skills a player can develop. We want our teams to compete at a high level relative to their program and have them compete not only in tournament play, but also in the training environment. Teaching our players to compete within a team environment will help them in every phase of their life. Check out our Laws of Teamwork HERE.

The third goal is to prepare our players for the next level. We excel in preparing those players that have the desire, athletic ability, and academic standing to play at the high school and collegiate level. Whatever their goals may be, we know that we will strive every day to help them reach their potential and take it to the next level.
