NC Coastal will field two advanced level teams in our Premier Team Program again this season.   The Premier Team Program is designed for the athlete who is one of the top players in skill and athletic potential for her playing position. The Premier Team player seeks to experience an advanced level of training, competition, and an extensive tournament schedule. The Premier team player is at the top of her High School or Middle School team and her club age division team. Our Premier Team training program was designed by former USA Volleyball National Team Assistant Coach Joe Trinsey. Joe is back in our gym after a season coaching a professional team in South Korea and as the NC Coastal Volleyball Instruction Advisor, he will Head Coach the 17 Premier Team and will advise on the training for the 14 Premier Team and the top teams in each age division. His vision for the Premier teams is to bring together players with the highest level of skill, potential, and athletic ability in each position and train them to compete together against Open level competition in the U17 and U14 age divisions. NC Coastal Premier teams will play in tournaments against the most competitive clubs in the east region and beyond to ensure they are competing against teams that will match their skill level and challenge them at every tournament.  NC Coastal’s staff has extensive experience and a comprehensive network to help student athletes navigate the recruiting process. We provide Sports Recruits profile services for each athlete,  recruiting workshops and guidance to all players on a Premier team to help achieve their goals to  play on the next level.
