The most important measure of success is not just in the win column, but in the quality of the environment that is created, and the number growth opportunities that are available to our athletes. Included on this page are a number of thoughts that our Sparks Families have shared.
“Love that it is Family oriented and the players have such a good time.” — Laurie C.
“Best group of parents and players you could ask for. We were so fortunate to be able to be a part of Sparks!” — Tiffany F.
“Over the top dedication to the girls and their families.” — Kenny F.
“Great coaching and it is a family atmosphere. I would recommend to anyone.” — Cindy G.
“The one and only club experience my daughter had in the five years she played, that should tell you something. Sparks Volleyball Club is more than a club, it’s family and relationships that will go far beyond playing volleyball. The coaching staff was second to none and it was truly a lifetime experience!” — Donna M.
“The amount of support, given and received, from every person involved in Sparks was incredible! The bonds of friendships that turned into extended family are insurmountable. The adults and coaches learned just as much as the players, about volleyball and about being part of something bigger than themselves. The team extends beyond the 12 young ladies rotating on/off the court. The team is a huge family! In one word, I would describe Sparks as SYNERGY!” — Bobbi C.
“What a great club! Dedicated parents, coaches and players that work hard and have fun. A close, family atmosphere that cannot be matched with the bigger clubs.” — Dianne H.
“Our daughter was with Sparks Volleyball Club for five years. She received strong coaching, but even more importantly, gained some excellent people skills and work ethic through the great coaching of Terry Sutter. The camaraderie and friendships that were created for both the girls, as well as the parents, was tremendous. It was clear from the beginning that Terry’s purpose went well beyond volleyball, and included turning the players into respectful young ladies as well as productive members of society. I would not hesitate to recommend Sparks Volleyball Club to anyone.” — John M.
“By far the best club volleyball experience! Great coaching with a great price. My daughter’s first three years of club volleyball were spent with two other larger clubs. Her last three years were spent with the Sparks Volleyball Club. We wish we would have found the Sparks sooner! The club owner and his wife really care about the girls on and off of the court. We have made lifelong friendships during our three years with the Sparks Volleyball Club.”– Brandy W.
“The core group of girls that made up the majority of the “Eclipse” team came from an AGAF recreation team and no one on the team had any club experience at all. With a great group of parents sharing the same concerns, we all wanted to make sure that the girl’s first experience with club volleyball was as positive and fun as possible. Keeping the core girls together was a must and having the right coach to put the proper perspective on the game was imperative. Pete McGloin, under the watchful eye of Terry Sutter, was the perfect coach selection and Sparks was the perfect club to introduce our girls to the club scene. Terry was always there to give a great perspective on the game and “Coach Pete” provided the knowledge and enthusiasm that the girls needed. We all received exactly we had hoped…a great atmosphere for our girls to not only learn the game but grow their love for volleyball. The surprising results of this first year 14-U team exceeded our wildest dreams. Out of a Club Division of 152 14U teams the Sparks Eclipse team placed 9th in the final standings…and did beat the over all champions, Club One Gold, at the “Memorial Day Classic” to win the tournament. What a truly great season!!!” — Bob G.
“Sparks Volleyball was “home” to us for many years. Our daughter grew incredibly as a volleyball player, as a leader, and as a compassionate person during her years with the Sparks. It was also a great experience for our entire family because Terry Sutter was always looking for ways to strengthen not only the bond between the players but also among the families. Terry has a great talent for seeing the best in people and challenging them to be all that they can be. Truly a wonderful experience!” — Sharon M.
