Community and Giving

Being a successful non-profit organization and working with children in a positive environment is a priority for Premier Volleyball coaches and staff. Having players and parents that also assist with community involvement is a huge bonus our club provides to the community. Helping with Nebraska Special Olympics by raising funds, conducting volleyball clinics and assisting with the NSO championships is a way we can give something worthwhile back to the community. The annual Premier Volleyball Golf Outings have raised over $7,500 for the Nebraska Special Olympics.

Premier Volleyball Players' Financial Aid Recipients

Updated January 10th, 2012

Congratulations to our 2011 Premier Volleyball Players' Financial Aid Recipients!

The Premier Volleyball Players' Financial Aid seeks to recognize its recently graduated high school seniors who continue to pursue their education. Applicants must demonstrate active participation in club activities, a willingness to excel in the classroom as well as on the court, leadership potential, and strong work ethics. This financial aid is sponsored by the families, coaches, and staff of Premier Volleyball. Funding for this aid is made possible through the fundraising efforts of the Premier Golf Classic Tournament Committee. The financial aid recipients for 2011 are:

Niki Gregory is a May graduate of Daniel J Gross Catholic High School where she was a four-year member of the varsity volleyball team. Niki is studying sports management and communication arts at Bellevue University in Bellevue, Nebraska. She says, "Premier did not just teach me how to be a great volleyball player, but they taught me how to have fun and still be competitive. When you play for Premier, you are joining a family that has many generations of a competitive, fun, hardworking atmosphere!"

Kelsie Pettit is a May graduate of Millard North High School. In high school, Kelsie was an active community volunteer and a member of the volleyball program for four years. Currently, she is attending the University of Nebraska at Omaha pursuing a Bachelor of Science degree. Kelsie's advice to other volleyball players is to never give up. "There will be times along your journey that you will be faced with extreme obstacles and setbacks. Just don't give up. These are the times when your character is built."

Bailey Vance is a May graduate of Papillion-LaVista South High School. Bailey has been an eight-year member of the Premier Volleyball program. Currently, she is attending Northwest Missouri State University in Maryville, Missouri where she is a member of the volleyball program and is studying pre-physical therapy. Premier has taught Bailey many lessons. She's learned to be a good player and the importance of teamwork and dedication. The club "has presented me with both success and failure, and how to deal with both of them". Most of all, Bailey says "don't be afraid to go after something you want and play with confidence

Way to go ladies!
