We will be running Position Specific Training throughout the season. Shannon Smolinski, Director of Player Development, will be running these sessions along with other Premier coaches specializing in those areas. These sessions are designed for players who have chosen a position or want to increase their level of experience and expertise. The training is for athletes who want to take their ability of play to the next level.

All Position Training sessions are open to Premier Athletes Only and are included in your fees!

- Setters Training: No Registration. See Calendar for dates. NOTE: This is specific to setters ONLY.

You must register online for Position Training in order to attend! No Walk-Ins! All training sessions will be open to the first 35 players who sign up! Registration will open up the Sunday evening at 8:00 pm before each training session. This will give those who are in tournaments on Sundays the chance to register.

Schedule and Registration

Email Shannon if you have any questions!

Xplosive Edge and Premier Volleyball

Designed specifically for Premier Volleyball athletes since 2005, the Xplosive Edge has teamed up with Premier to create the superior power athlete. Trained on site at our "Courts" satellite facility, premier athletes can train immediately before or after practice with X-edge. The Xplosive Edge satellite facility at The Courts is the Midwest's premier training facility for volleyball athletes. Equipped with Power Lift and Hammer Strength equipment, the courts satellite facility is nicer than most of the universities in the nation.

Emphasis is put on increasing strength, balance, agility, and range of motion, all while developing more power. These Premier Volleyball athletes are increasing their vertical jumps while at the same time learning how to jump and land on the ground as well as accelerate and decelerate. Plyometrics are included in our training regimen only when the athlete has become strong enough to control their bodies in space.

The courts training facility is exclusively for the use of the Xplosive Edge in its training of Premier Volleyball. Premier Volleyball is one of the nations best volleyball clubs and is on the rise. Since the inception of Xplosive Edge working with Premier Volleyball, Premier has increased its winning percentage by over 66% all while decreasing the injury rate by over 88%.

Premier athletes are trained twice a week (45 min. sessions) right before or after their practice. Each athlete is pre and post performance tested to see their own individual performance index score created by Boyd Epley of Epic Athletic Performance.

This is Premier Nebraska Volleyball!


We have the focus, drive, passion, character, discipline, confidence, power, determination and HEART!!!!! This is Premier Volleyball.....
