3Big Cat Mission Statement
The Big Cat Volleyball club cultivates enthusiasm for the game of volleyball by providing players the opportunity to develop solid fundamental volleyball skills, understand the dynamics of the game, work cooperatively with teammates, enjoy healthy competition, and build confidence.
About the Big Cat Club Season
The club season generally runs from early December to early April. Teams typically practice twice a week starting late November/early December. Teams compete in tournaments, which generally start in January and culminate with the Regional Tournament in Des Moines in March or April. Most Pride teams enter either the non-qualified or qualified regional tournament. Generally, teams decide at the beginning of each season, with their coach, on the number of tournaments they wish to participate in as well as how far they want to travel.
