A Message from Our Director
Hello, my name is Julie Myers-Dailey. I have grown up in Birmingham and very proud to still call Birmingham my home. I played at Bush Middle School, Ramsay High School and UAB. I have been coaching Junior Olympic Volleyball in Birmingham for 28 years now. My college coach Brenda Williams from UAB encouraged us to coach while we were college players and it became one of the best experiences of my life and has become a lifelong passion.
I began Team Sting, now Southern Performance Volleyball Academy, 10 years ago and initiated the process of making Birmingham a regional and national volleyball destination. We have amazing athletes here in our area and my desire as well as our coaches is to provide the most intense, fundamental and technical coaching that we can while helping develop these young ladies to become the best volleyball players they can be. With over 80 scholarships in just 8 years of seniors, Southern Performance is dedicated to progression.
It is an exciting time to be a part of Southern Performance. We have a steady flow of around 5-10 college coaches a week come through our gym during season and have our freshmen, sophomores and juniors already in the recruiting process with many close to committing. Although a college scholarship is the ultimate goal for many of our players, we are committed to building the best high school and middle school players in the area. Many of our players are All Metro and Metro All Tournament Middle School Players, All County Middle School Players and All State, All Area, All Region and All Metro High School Players.
In addition to court training, we have our SAND training program called, “Southern Performance Sand Elite”. We began the program with our Elite players 15 and older who were already in a consistent training situation as they were preparing for AAU Nationals. Our teams immediately became nationally known as players with a keen court sense and great skills. In our 1st Season, our teams won 4 tournaments, came 2nd in two tournaments as well as our 181 and 161 team both winning Bids to the USA Volleyball National Sand Championships. Our 181 team won the Bronze Division losing by two points to the eventual champions and our 16 team placed 19th in the nation. We also added the state’s first collegiate sand scholarship. In 2014, we had over 80 players, had 8 teams receive National Qualifying bids. We also enhanced our program by the addition of the states only indoor sand court.
We are a club of integrity and solid foundational instructors with an enormous amount of experience. Our goal is to lead your daughter to love the game of volleyball while learning commitment, hard work, determination and leadership.
