HERE ARE SOME TESTIMONIALS FROM PAST XCELERATION PARENTS AND PLAYERS
A Letter from Stephanie and Rob Doud... June 5, 2017
A note to all the new Xceleration Families .. You don't know this yet, but you have just made the best decision! It's been 4 years since my daughter committed to play on the Xcel 18 team coached/mentored by Andy, Jeremy, Paul and Jim and every day since we have been showered by nothing but positive coaching, kindness and support, straight through into her senior college year. Doesn't matter what age group or if it's the White/Blue team .. I promise you, every effort your daughter puts into this season, she will be rewarded times a thousand. Xcel is the best and your daughter is the lucky one!
The coaches’ commitment to the team, love of the players and families, intensity of practice and love of the sport created the perfect environment for learning and bonding as a team. If a family is lucky enough to call Xceleration 18 Blue their home next year, their child will develop not only as a player, but as a person, learning through example what integrity, commitment and loyalty are. The coaches work on ALL skills, EVERY practice… Read more
Our experience with Xcel this season has been truly remarkable. Kelley has played for three different clubs in the Bay Area and we have found Xcel to be the most organized and professional. Everyone involved in the program from travel organizers to recruiting specialists to coaches communicate so openly and often with parents and players. This communication amongst personnel and families made the transition very easy for all of us... Read more
Xceleration Volleyball Club has been a wonderful experience for our family - not just for highly competitive volleyball and college recruiting opportunities, but also for community and friendship. The leadership is people we respect and admire. They were selfless and tireless advocates for our daughter Molly during the recruiting process. They helped her to hone in and define her priorities, then provided phenomenal support, availing themselves of their extensive college coach network and guiding her, as she contacted coaches and they contacted her...

We have two daughters that have played for a total of seven years with Xceleration. I can't say enough about the club, the quality of their coaches and how supportive they are. The parents are great. It's like one big happy family. If your daughter wants to play after high school, this is the club for her. The coaches, along with a College Development Directors will contact schools and talk to coaches on your child's behalf. This will be our last year with the club (our daughter is a senior). We will miss it.
My daughter played four exciting years with Xceleration. The club was supportive, fun, and serious about improving my daughter's volleyball skills and play. Xceleration strived to improve themselves and offered whatever my family needed from clinics, private lessons, and best of all, guidance in the college recruitment process. They were always there to lend a helping hand.
Our daughter has played for 4 volleyball clubs since she began playing at age 12. Her senior year playing for Xceleration gave her the volleyball experience every player hopes for — fantastic, supportive, and passionate coaching, wonderful team camaraderie, and serious player commitment. From a mom's point of view, I will add that Xcel is the best run club in the area! No club offers the kind of support and commitment to players that Xcel does.
Having our daughter play for Xceleration was the best decision we have ever made concerning picking the right volleyball club for our daughter. The coaches and staff were fantastic. We still have contact with them to this day, three years after her season ended. We consider them part of our family!!!!!! I would recommend this club to anyone!!! Best in the Bay Area!!
My daughter played one year at Xceleration and our family was incredibly impressed with their coaching staff and administration. The Xceleration guys really do care about each girl individually. They spent untold hours contacting colleges around the country, meeting with college coaches and trying to match up girls with colleges that fit their needs and their abilities. On my daughter's team, each and every senior had offers from college(s), due to the Xceleration guys' connections and their time. Our family has participated in literally six different volleyball clubs in the greater Bay Area, and we highly recommend Xceleration as a wonderful place to play.
My team, coached by Andy Schroeder, Jeremy Swann, and Paul Harrison, was a special case. We came from various teams, many of us never playing together before. Yet we came together and made it work. Synthesizing both our talents and personalities, we created a unique type of teamwork that allowed us to eventually take fifth at the National Level of the Junior Olympics at the end of the year. Off the court we were great friends, joking around enjoying our time together. On the court we were focused, intense, passionate, flexible. Motivated by our coach’s plea to play at “fifth gear” (manual car reference), we never gave up and left everything we had, as individuals and as a team, on the court.
Most importantly, Xcel encouraged me to play with heart. To never compromise the passion and intensity I had always, and will always, bring to the game. I cannot thank the club, my coaches, the parents, and my teammates enough for making my senior club season so incredibly instructive, rewarding, supportive, and unique.
