When you have a dream in your life, sometimes the most important step to reaching that goal is the first step. For me that step was joining Boomers. The coaches saw potential in me and because of this, I became a varsity player at a young age, was selected for the all-dade team, and went on to earn a full scholarship at the University of Miami.
I had no idea at the time that I would go even further to play professionally abroad in Australia, Germany and Italy, and compete in the London 2012 Olympics against the best players in the world. It is the basic skills and confidence that I developed playing for Boomers that helped me to become so successful, and I am thankful every day to be living my dream.CIARA MITCHELL, OLYMPIAN/PRO VOLLEYBALL PLAYER
I owe my volleyball success to Boomers (volleyball club) and the expertise and dedication of the coaches.
With only a couple of years experience playing volleyball, Boomer's took my game to levels I never expected. I knew I was athletic, but I didn't fully know my talent and potential until Boomer's pulled it out and pushed me to be better.
I went from being just a player to a champion and full scholarship collegiate student athlete. I was apart of a 3 time State Championship high school team under Terri Jimenez, represented my state as a part of Team Florida, played for Clemson University, and spent summers training with volleyball greats.
I truly believe that many of these wonderful opportunities were a direct result of playing with Boomers.BRITTANY ROSS, CLEMSON ALL ACC FRESHMAN AND SECOND TEAM ALL ACC
I started my volleyball career with Boomers at the age of 9 and spent the next 9 years learning from some of the best coaches around. One thing that made Boomers special was the fact that it offered more than just team training, but also had many individual position practices that allowed me to work on my skills more than other players at different clubs.
Those skills helped me excel at the University of Louisville and now in Poland where I play professionally. But the best part about Boomers had to be the girls that I got to play with for all of those years. I was able to form friendships that has lasted far beyond high school, and that is what really makes Boomers a special club.JUSTINE LANDI, UNIVERSITY OF LOUISVILLE AND POLISH PROFESSIONAL LEAGUE
I have both worked at clubs, and been the parent of a player, for many years. The biggest draws for me in switching to Boomers several years ago were the integrity of the staff, the elite level of training, and player results.
I truly believe that Terri and her staff have the girls best interest at heart, teaching them not only volleyball skills but also life lessons that often can only be learned through sport. And to top it off, the teams win. No other club in South Florida has had four teams qualify for Nationals in one year. Quite an accomplishment. I look forward to continuing to be a part of the club for years to come.MICHELE VILLANO, MOTHER OF BRIDGETTE VILLANO
