HOME OF MIDWEST VOLLEYBALL POWER!

Welcome to Midwest Volleyball Power, Siouxland's Premier Club Volleyball Program!

 

Midwest Volleyball Power (MVP) Volleyball Club is building a new tradition of volleyball in the Siouxland area. MVP is a unique and diverse youth sports organization that has over 120 active members. Midwest Volleyball Power Volleyball Club is recognized as the premier volleyball organization in the Tri-state area (Northwest Iowa, Northeast Nebraska & Southeast South Dakota). This is best accomplished by developing highly competitive teams whereby recognition is gained through winning and respect.  

We believe that our club volleyball program promotes competitiveness, teaches individuals to excel, and develops leadership skills that transcend athletics into every aspect of a member's life.

MVP offers professionally run programs administrated by qualified individuals in the sport of volleyball. Our goals are to provide the opportunity for highly skilled athletes to pursue college scholarship opportunities as well as giving the less experienced player the chance to improve their skills for their school teams.

MVP, a 501C3 non-profit corporation, is governed by a board of directors and practices at Longlines Family Rec Center in the heart of downtown Sioux City, IA.

Lindsey Smith - University of Nebraska-Kearney

Playing for MVP not only developed my volleyball skills, but it really molded me into the person I am today.  I formed deep bonds and lasting relationships with people who continue to impact my life today.  I was coached by passionate coaches who wanted the best for me and pushed me to compete at a level I never thought possible.  I attribute many of my successes and accomplishments thus far to the experiences and opportunities I had with MVP.  I found a love for a sport that I want to continue with in some capacity for the rest of my life.  I was fortunate to have the opportunity to play club volleyball for six years and I truly loved every minute of it.  My advice to younger/current players is to never take a moment for granted because it is over before you know it!


Alexis Conaway - Iowa State University

My experience playing for MVP was awesome! It provided the perfect opportunity to get better and have fun playing with other girls who loved the game as much as I did. The coaching staff was very knowledgable and pushed us to be the best we could be every day. The girls worked hard and really enjoyed competing together. We were all multi-sport athletes, and the coaches did a great job of working with us so we could be successful in all of our activities. By the end of our season, the coaches, players, and families really became one big family. Overall, I am so thankful for my time with MVP. I was exposed to a whole new level of volleyball that challenged me and prepared me for the rest of my athletic career. The relationships I formed and skills I learned go way beyond the volleyball court!


Kasey Reuter - University of Iowa

The years I spent with MVP were irreplaceable. I developed not only my volleyball skills, but I developed relationships that will last a lifetime. Playing club volleyball is a unique experience because you know that you will play with other players who are as serious about volleyball as you are. It’s pretty special to have the opportunity to play with some of the best players in the area and to really form a strong, family-like bond. I still consider the girls that I played with as some of my best friends. I also can’t say enough about the coaching staff. They truly care about each individual player and they invest so much time into the program. From a skill aspect, the coaching staff helps break things down into specific skills that will help make your daughter a better overall player. The sheer extra reps you get from doing MVP is invaluable for your daughter to become a better player! It’s so much fun to be in a competitive environment that pushes you to be the best you can be all while you are having a great time. I didn’t want to spend my Sundays with anyone else. MVP helped me form a strong work ethic that I know will translate past just the volleyball court. I am so thankful for the relationships and experiences I had through my many years with MVP!


Brianna Eaton - Briar Cliff University

 I loved my years of playing club volleyball with MVP.  Each year we would build not only volleyball skills and play against tough competition, but also build strong and lasting friendships.  As a member of MVP, it also helped me build a strong work ethic, both on and off the court!  From the many years of playing with MVP, I’m blessed to say we remain a volleyball family!  My MVP coaches and players are some of my favorite people!  With the extensive training, mentorship and direction from MVP coaches I earned a 4-year college volleyball scholarship at Briar Cliff University.  For this I’m truly blessed and forever thankful!  I couldn’t have done it without MVP!


Lauren Waite - Augustana College

Playing volleyball at MVP was a great experience. Not only did it prepare me for playing at the college level, but it also gave me lifelong memories and friendships. I always looked forward to practice because I was surrounded by great people who loved volleyball just as much as I did. Playing MVP is a great opportunity to improve volleyball skills and to get seen by college scouts. The coaches encourage and help build new skill and perfect technique.Besides volleyball, MVP gave me a second family who is always there for support even still today.
