Community Sports Development Program Volleyball



The Community Sports Development Program – Volleyball focuses on building consistency in basic volleyball fundamentals and incorporating those skills into competition. The head coach of the program is 2-time Olympian and 1992 Olympic Bronze Medalist, Lori Endicott-Vandersnick. Lori is originally from Springfield and her experience as an Olympic athlete allows other young players to realize that Olympic dreams are possible.

CSDP volleyball is about creating a complete player. We strive to help each participant to build the skill, character, and work ethic of an elite athlete, so that they can reach their own volleyball goals.
