There is no substitute for hard work; there are no short cuts for success. There are no easy roads to achieve worthwhile goals. Everything precious in life requires goal setting, discipline, determination, persistence, commitment, and a passion to succeed. It is this relentless pursuit of excellence that makes a TCA athlete different from others.
WE WORK HARD AND WE PLAY HARD
If it were easy, then everyone would be doing it. We are committed and that is what makes us different. We believe in competitive greatness, which means doing your best when your best is needed and enjoying the challenge of a difficult situation. Winning is the important but your daughter’s improvement is most important.
WE ARE PRINCIPLE CENTERED
We teach the values of commitment on and off the court. Of course, we cannot guarantee success, but we know that success takes guts and staying power to make it as an elite athlete. A total commitment on and off the court – at practice and even during off time is required of our athletes.
WE KNOW CHARACTER COUNTS
Character in a player is just as important as the athletic skills that our players possess. History proves that the culmination of all “little things” emphasizes the fact there are no the little things. All athletes, especially the great ones, understand and enjoy the mastery of little things.
“WHAT YOU BELIEVE, YOU BECOME.”
The foundation to all success is the setting and pursuit of stated goals. We expect all players to set a goal of excellence and in turn strive for it. We know that the skills taught in volleyball can and will transfer into life skills off the court. We work on both the mental and the physical sides of the game with our athletes. We train them to work hard for what they want, and that giving up or giving in is never an option.
Our unified vision is to create an environment where we can provide character development, build self esteem, and teach valuable skill sets and good sportsmanship, while providing fun through the game of volleyball. This environment will enrich the players, coaches, and parents by incorporating core values such as work ethic, persistence, discipline, determination, competition, goal setting and accountability. This vision will create winning players with universal core values who will positively contribute to multiple communities throughout the nation.

If you have $200,000 put aside for college, and the money is burning a hole in your pocket and your daughter can get into any school of her choice. Then this information is NOT for you!
If we agree a college scholarship is potentially worth $200,000, how hard would you work for it? Many people treat it like the lotto. Buy a ticket, pray and HOPE. It’s not the lotto, it’s a job. YOU work now you get paid later.
For those of you who are not lucky enough to win the lotto Let’s get Started!
What’s on the line? How much can this potential be worth to you?
- Get into a good school as a preferred walk on (UCSD,UCLA)
- Get a scholarship to a school not of your ideal dreams (save $30-50,000/year)
- Get a scholarship to the school of your choice
OLD: I hope I will get recruited (passive)
NEW: I will take all necessary steps to get recruited(directive)
OLD: I will let someone else (director, high school coach, club coach do the work)
NEW: I will take this most important matter in my own hands
If I work hard enough, do enough research, ask the right questions and follow up, I can get to college.
