Greatest Coaches!

Many thanks to all the Iowa Rockets coaches!  Over 500 players have tried out for Iowa Rockets volleyball in the past 5 weekends.  Players did an AWESOME job – sooooo much talent.  Coaches were outstanding.  15 – 20 coaches at every tryout session have made this the biggest and best tryouts ever.  Their dedication and commitment to “Kids First” have made Iowa Rockets volleyball a phenomena (and affordable) club year in and year out over the past 19 years!
