Developmental

Upward Stars York County offers the most comprehensive volleyball and athletic training for aspiring young athletes. We now offer year-round skills training for players striving to improve. For those able to participate, there is measureable long-term growth by receiving quality instruction throughout the year. Our coaches are some of the most talented, experienced teachers in the area and provide excellent technical and tactical instruction.

Upward Stars York County is 100% committed to developmental growth and maturity of our youth in not only the sport of volleyball but in life through our unique 360 Progression. At Upward Stars York County we strive to develop the players in four key areas...

  • Mentally- Deeper understanding of the game and how to make right choices on and off the court while learning to read the ball and each other. (Proactive)

  • Athletically- Developing in physical strength, agility, coordination, stamina, and skill set.

  • Spiritually- Anyone can lead when it's easy-who's willing to lead when it's hard? At Upward Stars we use a curriculum that has been widely effective in developing our young athletes in character, faith, and relationships.

  • Socially- Learning to be a team player while encouraging others around you.

Our goal is to make sure that athletes aspire to the levels of skill and competition that they are fully capable of reaching starting at a young age. Our goal is also to excel our players in the sport of volleyball but also to help them reach their full potential in their lives as well as impact the lives of those around them.

Our Developmental Programs are for athletes of any skill level and experience. These programs build and enhance an athletic foundation that will prepare each athlete for long-term success. There is a high focus on fundamentals, individual skill training, and motor skill enhancement. We recommend each athlete participate in a Developmental program before participating on a Travel Team.
