Beach volleyball just got a whole lot better (and more convenient)! 850Elite Volleyball Academy has opened a brand new location in Valparaiso that brings the beach to you! The new facility has four beach courts, four indoor courts, and an indoor wellness center. With the beach volleyball season in full swing from April to July and indoor season coming soon, there is no better time to check out the new facilities.
850Elite is an academy that prides itself on teaching success on and off the court for girls. An emphasis on mental toughness, time management, and stress management are a few of the disciplines that club owner Terri Fedonczak and the coaches believe carries from the courts and into school for a positive outcome in life.
There are multiple opportunities to get involved with 850Elite this summer! An array of camps offers fun and exciting training to all skill levels for girls in middle and high school. You can even enter your own team into one of the beach tournaments that 850Elite hosts. Along with volleyball, the indoor wellness center provides classes that promote girls to “love their body and be healthy,” according to Ligia Willis, a coach at 850Elite. Spinning, yoga, and ariel activities are among the classes offered. Anybody is welcome to these classes and memberships are available for purchase at the wellness center.
Looking for a more long-term way to get involved? 850Elite has travel volleyball teams! So far in 2016 the indoor teams have packed up and conquered tournaments in Tallahassee, Gulf Shores, Tampa, and Pensacola. There are six different travel teams, separated by age.
For 850Elite, success is key. A unique coaching method called the Gold-Medal Squared System that has been used at the US National Volleyball Team and the US Olympic Team is taught right here on the Emerald Coast! 850Elite teams often take home gold, bronze, and silver medals during the regular indoor season from Dec. to April.
Whether you’re in need of one-on-one training, team training, or just want to see if volleyball is the sport for you, 850Elite has you covered in a positive, fun, and encouraging environment!
