Idaho Crush Volleyball Club, Inc. ("Idaho Crush") is premised on the belief that volleyball players are made not born. We focus on practice even more so than on competition. We believe in learning fundamentals and skills and then developing consistency through high volume and high intensity repetition. Volleyball is a challenging sport for young players. It takes hours of practice to develop the skill level needed to compete at the highest levels. If you are looking for a club that teaches correct fundamentals, demands maximum effort, and that will challenge you to be the best player that you can be then Idaho Crush is for you.
At Idaho Crush we believe that we can compete with the best clubs in the United States and that our athletes are as good as the best volleyball players in the country. Despite being a relatively new club, Idaho Crush has been recognized by US Club Rankings and Prepvolleyball.com as a regional power and our athletes (see commitment list above), are being recruited by some of hte top volleyball programs in the nation. Our top teams compete at the highest levels of club volleyball. We encourage you to review our record--we will tell you exactly how we place at regional and national tournaments. If you aspire to play at the highest levels of club volleyball and to be tested against the very best in the sport, then Idaho Crush is for you.

Parents can play many roles in sport: current or former athlete, coach, fan, motivator, role model or critic. A few studies have shown that family members may influence an athlete’s involvement and achievement in sport more than coaches. Parents also are the first and most critical agents at socializing sports.
