“Excel has given me the opportunity to compete at the highest level of competition. As part of the USA Youth National Team, I had the opportunity to travel to Costa Rica and represent my country. I would not be where I am today without my Excel coaches. Through Excel, I have created many cherished memories and made life long friends.”

What Parents Have to Say...

"There is a saying that success as a coach should not be measured by wins and losses, but how many weddings you get invited to.  Wins are never guaranteed, but Excel coaches will build a player’s character, support positive relationships, and provide an environment for personal and athletic growth.  When coaches are fair, work hard, and expect hard work in return, players rise to the occasion.  This Club sets high goals and expectations, and is always striving to do better.  All the coaches at Excel bring a love for the game and their players.  Mickey has been with Excel since she was 10 years old and each year we add more names to her future wedding guest list."

What Players Have to Say...

"Our daughter has been with Excel NW since she was 10 years old. Excel has a "family" feeling, not only with the individual teams, but also as a club as a whole. Abby is now playing Varsity volleyball for her high school team as a freshman. We feel it is due to her hard work, dedication, and also the encouragement and opportunities provided through Excel NW. Her club coaches have truly cared about her success."

“Excel was more then a club for me it was definitely a family. I made so many close relationships with my teammates and coaches from playing at Excel for a few years. I learned a lot about what it takes to play at the next level and had so much fun doing it. I would not be where I am today if I hadn’t played with and learned from the best at a young age.”

"Choosing a club can be overwhelming.  There are coaches with great resumes throughout the region which might make it hard to decide where to play.  My girls and I chose Excel because in addition to the distinguished level of coaching and competitiveness within the club, the coaches have positive relationships with the athletes and genuinely care about their success.  That was extremely important to our family when making our decision."
