About

One of the fastest growing programs in the midwest, we are a competitive volleyball club for players ages 8-19 located in Springfield, Illinois. We currently train girls to compete throughout the midwest with our top teams competing on the National Level. 

Our Mission

We offer lessons, group training sessions, youth volleyball leagues, training teams, regional travel and of course national exposure, while keeping costs to a reasonable and yet competitive amount.

We have plans to expand into a new facility in the near future and hope to expand into boys volleyball at that time. Currently we offer training opportunities for our male players. We are located at 1401 N. 8th Street, Springfield, IL 62702.

History & Growth

  • 2010: Shock started as a concept from a locally run developmental club in Athens. The early years consisted of mostly regional teams and anywhere from 30-50 girls in the club.

  • 2014:  I brought our current Director and my friend John Komnick on board to work closely in the development of the club. We have since grown to over 300 players and 30 teams traveling the midwest and nationally. With the growth has come success on the national level and the placement of several girls in the collegiate ranks.

  • 2019: 17 Under AAU National Runner-Up, 2021- 17 Under AAU National Runner-Up, 2021- 15 Under 3rd Place at Nationals, 2012- 5th Place 16 Under at Nationals, 13 Under 13th at Nationals.
