National Pancake Day

13 Extreme and our 12's 1's team had fun celebrating National Pancake Day on February 27th.

The "Pancake" is a defensive play and type of dig where the player throws themselves on the ground and uses the back of their hand to hit the ball. The athlete - usually a libero - attempts to hit the ball by diving with their arm extended and their palm facing the ground so that the ball hits the back of their hand.

A Club Arrowhead coach of 10 years has been inducted into the Volleyball Hall of Fame. We send a sincere CONGRATULATIONS to our very own Lisa Stuck!

"The National Junior College Athletic Association announced its 2017 Hall of Fame inductees Monday. This year's class features three current or former Division II coaches- Lisa Stuck of Glendale Community College (AZ), former Cowley College (KS) head coach Jenifer Bahner and the late Mary Davis of Black Hawk Community College (IL). Story here.

For the past 20 seasons Lisa Stuck has steered the ship for the Glendale volleyball program. This past season Stuck surpassed the 500 win mark for an overall record of 502-221.

During her tenure with the Gauchos, the program has experienced unprecedented success. Glendale has won the Region 9 championship nine times which resulted in nine national tournament appearances. In 2014 Glendale won the NJCAA Division II Volleyball National Championship – the only volleyball championship in program history.

Individually, Stuck has garnered numerous coaching awards, including District Coach of the Year (9), ACCAC Coach of the year (6), and NJCAA DII National Tournament Coach of the Year (2014).

Stuck also coached for four years at Mesa (AZ) prior to her arrival at Glendale.

As a player, Stuck was an All-American standout at Arizona State from 1980-83 and is a member of the Sun Devils' Hall of Fame. Stuck was also a member of the USA National Team and participated in the World University Games.

Stuck continues to guide the Glendale program as the Gauchos posted a .625 winning percentage in 2017." ~NJCAA

Kylie Waters verbally commits to Seattle University

Kylie Waters verbally commits to Seattle University


We are so incredibly proud to share that one of our long-time athletes, Kylie Waters, has verbally committed to Seattle University. Kylie verbally committed to the private, Division I university the night of October 3, 2017.

Kylie is a 5’ 1”, 95 pound libero. Don’t let her size fool you. She’s dynamite on the court!

Coach and Club Arrowhead Director Deb Martin cried with joy when she got the news, “I’m so proud of Kylie and ecstatic about her future and what’s yet to come.”

Kylie is a sophomore at Millennium High School in Goodyear, Arizona. She’s been playing with Club Arrowhead Volleyball since she was just 11 years old.

Club Arrowhead begins assisting athletes with prospective college opportunities and recruiting beginning at age 14. We work with a program called SportsRecruits to help our players get seen and find the right opportunities available to them.

A heartfelt CONGRATS to Kylie! We’ll be watching you for years to come!

"Jessica Youngberg never truly left volleyball." We are so proud of this Club Arrowhead alumni is one of the top players for Ottawa University Arizona.

Club Arrowhead is humbled and proud to recognize our athletes who stand out on the All West Valley Preps volleyball team including the top players in the Northwest Valley for the 2017 season.

Player of the Year

Ashley Lifgren, Centennial: "This year, it was almost a flip of a coin or more like the roll of a die. The three first team attackers, Lifgren, Allen And Harte, received serious consideration, as did Gandara and Wise, who narrowly missed a first-team attack spot. In the end Lifgren won out for the things she does beyond the kill. The sophomore was third on the 5A semifinalist in blocks, averaged nine digs a match and received the second most serves on the Coyotes despite missing a part of the season." Article

Runner-up: Bre Allen, Valley Vista - If player of the year goes to the most versatile attacker, it's only fair that the runner up goes to the most ruthlessly efficient offensive player around these parts. Harte had more variety to her game and showed some exquisite placement skills with her attacks. But she can't match Allen's numbers as few Arizona players can. The powerhouse finished the year with 408 kills (3.9 per set), a kill percentage of 54.7, and when errors are factored in, an eye-popping hit percentage of .418 a third in the state and tops in 6A.


OH  Bre Allen, senior, Valley Vista


OH/L – Kyla Chavez, senior, Valley Vista

Many of the athletes mentioned have played for Club Arrowhead for at least three years or more at some point in their young career. We are so very, very proud of each and every one of them! CONGRATS!


Why I Don't Pay For Club Volleyball - A Blog

A Letter To My Daughter Allie

Blog by Dr. Jeffrey Kerns

"During a recent dinner one of my friends asked, 'Why do you pay so much for club volleyball?' Here is what I really “pay” for and what I hope you gain from these experiences. The truth is... I never intend to pay for club volleyball."
