Dedication to Fundamental Skill Development
Entering our 19th year of volleyball training, Crossfire is committed to building a solid foundation of fundamental skills. Our purposeful training methods are designed to effectively facilitate growth on behalf of our athletes. Collectively our coaches have decades of experience to guide our athletes in a positive learning and training environment.
Competitive Elite Teams
Crossfire Volleyball has a proven track record of elite team success. We've had a team finish 1st, 2nd or 3rd in their respective divisions at the AAU National Volleyball Championships in Orlando, Florida, which is the largest volleyball tournament in the world. On the local level, our teams posted many high finishes in events in our region.
Exceptional Training Facility
For 10 years, Crossfire Volleyball is proud to call Champlin home. Conveniently located and easily accessible on Highway 169, our facility has 4.5 training courts, a strength training area, and a clean, comfortable lobby. Our volleyball center is a terrific environment to facilitate training and growth most effectively.
Developmental Teams and Training Opportunities
While many of our athletes are experienced, we feel it's important to provide training opportunities for those new to the sport. During the summer we offer general skill camps for 4th to 12th grade girls. Our fall league for 4th to 8th grade athletes is a great team option for young athletes who are new to volleyball as well as advanced players. Our Youth Development Program is an entry level option for 4th to 7th grade girls to build a foundation of fundamental skills.
Our coaches make the difference and are the backbone of our club. Using the language of Joe Ehrmann from InsideOut Coaching, we look for "transformational coaches" to lead our fine group of young athletes. Our objective is to take a strong group of coaches and make them better by providing training from within our organization.
Using an education parallel, Crossfire is similar to a private, Christian school where elements of faith are invited to be part of our athletic training experience. Honoring God with our gifts and abilities, handling adversity, overcoming fear, building self-confidence, competing with integrity, and exhibiting good sportsmanship are some of the faith and character-building lessons we seek to teach and reinforce. Although Crossfire incorporates the Christian faith as part of the athletic training experience, all athletes are welcome no matter their faith journey. Resources that may be used in our team meeting times include the Fellowship of Christian Athlete's Bible and devotional lessons, Growing Leaders curriculum by Dr. Tim Elmore, mental training videos by Joshua Medcalf, 3D coaching by Jeff Duke, and other lessons developed by Crossfire coaches.
For all Crossfire teams we do our best to select tournaments that will provide a positive and competitive experience. Crossfire runs a number of tournaments at Crossfire Training Center, Bethel University and Hopkins Lindbergh Center, which are good venues for players and spectators. Our elite teams play a competitive tournament schedule against some of the stronger teams in our region and beyond.
