Advice From a Former Director, Coach and Parent
Category: News & Updates
  • Have fun! After all this should be fun.
  • I will throw stones and I will call people out, why? I don't live in a glass house I hold myself and this club to the same standard as I would hold anyone else, and when we fail to meet those standards we hold ourselves accountable.
  • If there is a general email sent out or a general statement made calling out an action or deed and you're offended, you are either guilty of the action or insecure. Please correct either of those.
  • Savor these moments. Once it is gone it is gone. Before you know it you will be the grandparent. Perspective!
  • When attending a multi-day tournament. Go see something you would never see or eat something you would never eat. Memories will happen on the court but you will have those on video. The courts in the Philadelphia convention center look just like the courts in the Kansas City convention center, but the BBQ at Q39 is insane and everyone should see where they signed the Declaration of Independence.
  • Parents only go out for a drink with other parents if you are in a good mood. Kids remember this for later in life. Alcohol makes you more of what you were when you started to drink. If you were happy you will be more happy. If you were grumpy you will be more grumpy. Nobody needs more grumpy in their life.
  • All parents have rose colored glasses when it comes to their children. Although, some parents have a way darker tint.
  • Every parent wants the 5 best players on the floor plus their athlete.
  • For most ages, but definitely for 14s and below, parents care more about winning or losing than the athletes do. Ask your athlete how they feel before you project your positive or negative emotions to them.
  • Want to entertain yourself, go watch a volleyball match at crossroads from two courts away. Watch the parents not the game. Yes you do look that crazy.
  • As a parent if you regularly come to practice use that time for one of two things. If you are an actual coach of the team then coach. If not make friends with the other parents and socialize. Everyone needs more friends. You watching your athlete practice results in one of four things: more anxiety for your athlete, more anxiety for you, more anxiety for both of yo...

TCV Changes: Co-Director Chrissy Elder
Category: News & Updates
Athletes and Parents,
              Within the last month I, Lance Phair, began the process of transferring the Co-Director postition of TCV to Chrissy Elder, UCCS head coach. Chrissy joined the TCV family last season. I have been planning taking a reduced role within the club for a few years. However, I wasn't going to make a change until the club was on solid ground and I found someone that I could trust to carry on the TCV philosophy.
              TCV had never been in a better position. Chrissy and Kyong leading the overall club and Justin Hertlein directing and leading Boys, Beach and Prep, have allowed me to feel comfortable with this transition. We will have at least two teams that will play in the Mixed division next season. We are the only club in the Springs to have a Boys team and a Beach team. I also started TCV Prep, our developmental program. In the past 6 years we have built the best club coaching staff in the area. From the four college coaches on staff, to the coaches that have been with us for years, to former players that are now coaching for us, there isn't another staff that compares top to bottom. So given all this, the timing is right. We just needed the right person.
             Chrissy is that person. She understands and believes in the TCV philosophy. If I didn't trust that Kyong and Chrissy could build on the growth of TCV I would not be making this move. I will still be involved in the club, I will still coach, I will be on the board of directors, and I will provide guidance as we get into the start of next season. Running a club is not easy and we will all work together so we continue down the TCV path and don't make mistakes of the past and only move forward. I have full faith this will happen.
             Thank you. I have truly enjoyed doing this for the last 6 years.
Lance Phair

12s and 13s Lead Coach: Justin Hertlein
Category: News & Updates
TCV Announcement: For the 2019/20 club season Justin Hertlein is going to take an expanded role on the Girls side of the club. Justin will continue to be the Boy's and Beach Director, but he will also now be in charge of the 12s and 13s programs, and the 14 National Head Coach. Justin, in conjunction with the great youth coaches, will make sure that our youngest athletes start their volleyball lives with strong fundamentals, and the willingness to be held accountable. This group of coaches know how to make the game fun while being disciplined. We look forward to the progress these athletes will make this season.
