“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 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.
"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."
"“When our family moved here from out of state many years ago, we were looking for a volleyball club for our young budding volleyball enthusiast daughters. Excel NW Volleyball Club was the one club who communicated with us immediately and welcomed us into their circles. Six years later, countless tournaments, teams, travels, hotels, wins, losses, jerseys, knee pads, shoes, backpacks, miles traveled and many friends made along the way, for both the girls and the parents, Excel NW has become part of our family. The coaches have always been supportive of our girls, pushing them to achieve their goals. With competitive collegiate bound daughters and varsity high school state champions, Excel NW has contributed to their development, skills, volleyball IQ and helped grow their athletic abilities. Excel NW Volleyball Club had definitely lived up to its name and Excelled in all aspects of our club experience.”

"Excel has been an excellent club for Morgan. She has been fortunate to have played for top notch coaches who have not only developed her volleyball skills, but have also helped her grow as a young adult. Engaging in high level competition was a key motivator for Morgan and she definitely benefits from this at Excel. The club has also allowed Morgan to make great new friends making her volleyball experiences even better."
