Skill Training & Competition Program


Thank you athletes, parents, and coaches for a great STAC 2019 :)

We hope to see many of you at SMASH Camp this summer!

Winter 2019 STAC Program

SMASH Volleyball Club's Skill Training & Competition (STAC) Program takes place at Newton North HS on Sunday mornings from 10:00am-12:30pm.  In case of inclement weather, please be advised times/dates may change. 

This 12-week, 30-hour program will run from January 6 to February 10, and from March 3 to April 7.

(There will be no STAC sessions on February 17 & 24 during the MA public school vacation week.)

The STAC Program offers high-quality volleyball instruction in a safe and active environment where athletes of all backgrounds and levels of experience are encouraged to work hard at developing their ability and potential.  Each training session includes skill instruction, drills, and a variety of fast-paced, competitive play.  SMASH coaching methods are in accordance with current motor learning research findings and follow the same principles of instruction used by the USA National Teams and most top collegiate programs nationwide.

This program is designed for Middle School and High School girl athletes.

  • Coaches are chosen for coaching ability, knowledge, and most importantly, positive skills with young players
  • Coaches include college and high school coaches, top area players, men and women, and club coaches
  • STAC is a no-cut program
  • There is a certified trainer on site for taping and other medical issues
  • We are very serious about our coaches; we have many, and they receive a 1-hour training session before each session


The total fee for this program is $500.

The STAC fee is $450 for players who paid the SMASH Travel Team Tryout fee in Oct/Nov 2018.
