D1 Volleyball Club is committed to providing youth athletes with the highest level of training and leadership to help them reach their fullest athletic potential.  Our boys program (based in Skokie and Palos Heights) is led by Shane Davis, Head Men's Volleyball Coach of the 2014 NCAA Division I National Championship Team, Loyola University Chicago, along with his wife, Andrea, the Club Director.  Our girls program (based in Morton Grove) is led by Shari Davis, former outstanding NCAA collegiate volleyball coach and player (Loyola University Chicago, North Dakota State, and Upper Iowa University).  The majority of our coaching staff has played or coached in college and several of our coaches have advanced into careers at major college volleyball programs.   

We conduct our training using a lead coach system, meaning one highly-experienced coach is responsible for running each practice session with the support of their co-coaches.  This makes training consistent from team-to-team, regardless of age or team level.  D1 is not a club where you will spend the majority of practice scrimmaging—athletes will be rigorously trained.  Our decades of combined collegiate coaching and playing experience shape the way in which we run our club—we are volleyball professionals—knowledgeable, committed, and completely passionate about this sport.  Click to view more about our coaching leadership staff.
