A5 Sister Club Restructures to Make More Club History!
A new facility and leadership changes on the south side will position our sister club for growth and results!
 
As the 2020-21 club season wraps up, this year has proven to be one with its share of adversity but also great opportunity. We are excited to share the following leadership changes at A5 South that will ultimately help the program grow in its ability to execute our mission. 
 
Our mission is to teach girls and boys life lessons through the sport of volleyball.

Over the years as a sister club Director, Joe has gained valuable insight on how A5 can better serve the players, families, coaches and communities surrounding its sister clubs.
