For the last year and a half, COVID-19 created interruptions and uncertainty in the youth sports community. We're certainly not out of the woods as it relates to the pandemic, but we are optimistic for continually improving circumstances as we progress toward the club season. We approach the 2022 campaign with a new sense of appreciation for the opportunities to train and compete, while continuing to maintaining the standards of health and safety on behalf of our athletes, parents, coaches and staff members.
Crossfire is guided by core principles and a philosophy that makes us unique in the world of youth sports. A major theme for our training comes from a key scripture verse in Hebrews 12:1 - "Run with perseverance the race that is set before us". This scripture verse from Hebrews 12:1 continues to be a major theme for our training. Our goal is to train our athletes to fight the good fight, to run the race with a great attitude and supreme effort, to stay on course and finish well. "How" our athletes conduct themselves (character & class) is just as important as "what" they achieve through competition (results & outcomes). Review our club overview page for more details on what makes Crossfire different.
To parents who are considering Crossfire as a home for volleyball training on behalf of your daughter, I hope the information on our website provides the detail that enables you to make an informed decision. If not, please let us know and we will be glad to answer your questions. Email is the best form of communication (firstname.lastname@example.org). Crossfire Volleyball may not be the best fit for your family due to our location, practice schedule, cost of program, program philosophy, etc. If that is the case, there are a number of other volleyball clubs in the Twin Cities to explore.
To the prospective Crossfire athletes of 2022, I want to ask you a few questions as you consider our program. Are you willing to enter the race and run with all your heart? Are you willing to put forth your best effort with a great attitude? Are you willing to put your personal agenda aside in order to contribute to a team effort? Based on our unique approach and philosophy, does Crossfire Volleyball seem like a good fit for you? If the answer is "yes" to these questions, I hope to see you in October and November!
Sincerely, Tom Fuglestad Club Director Crossfire Volleyball
