501 Volley has a HOME! 

We are about to have our very own dedicated volleyball practice facility!  As of last Friday (Oct 11) 501 Volley has acquired a 25,000 square foot building that will soon be converted into an awesome four court volleyball venue.  We believe this will be a game changer for volleyball in Central Arkansas and 501 Volley.

A practice facility has been a goal of ours from the very beginning of our tenure (this will be our 5th season directing 501 Volley – formerly Fatchmo Volley).  As the club has grown so has our need for access to courts that we could control.  Over the past 18 months our search for a solution intensified, but each avenue we explored proved not to be feasible.  And then we caught a break.

The building, located at 4107 Richards Road in North Little Rock was originally an indoor soccer facility.   When we learned that the property was on the market we were amazed to discover that it was almost exactly the size we have envisioned for a four-court volleyball complex.

Our task now is to renovate the building to accommodate four beautiful indoor volleyball courts. There is a lot of work to be done, but we are hopeful that we can be playing volleyball there by January 2020.  We will keep you apprised of our progress.    

Having a dedicated facility will allow us to offer expanded programming and opportunities for our players to work on their skills.  It will also make the scheduling of practices more predictable and efficient (no more need to set up and take down the net at every practice).

We are undertaking this project in partnership with Pat Riley, a long-time coach for 501 and someone with an extensive background in developing athletic facilities.  Our entire coaching staff is very excited about this development and those who can are pitching in to help us during this transition.

From the beginning, we have been blessed with amazing players and families who have bought into our culture of reaching for the stars and training to get to the ‘next level’.  Getting to that next level requires hard work and a commitment to constant improvement.  It also requires access to courts and good coaching.  With this facility we will have all the pieces in place to develop players to their full potential.  And, we’ll have some fun doing it!

Thanks for being a part of the 501 Volleyball family!

Note about national fee increase

Many have noticed the increase in dues for national teams. This is due to the extension of the season to include nationals at the end of June/beginning of July. All associated fees for practices and two additional tournaments during May and June, are included in the national dues. Payments are now spread out over 7months, so there is not a dramatic increase in the monthly payment amount as compared to previous years.
