Believed that the mind, body, and soul each had to be developed and prepared for a [person] to live a life of areté. This belief led to the thought that athletics had to be present in order to obtain and fully achieve a true state of areté.  

Pursue Perfection, Settle for Excellence.  

We focus on developing our athletes.  Teaching the specific skills and techniques of volleyball, enhancing overall IQ, & truly what it takes to play this game as a positive teammate, leader, encourager, resilient player, and much more.  We pay attention to the unique intricacies of being an impact player and person on & off the court ("Development Beyond the Court").  We are passionate about assisting & mentoring every athlete who wants to play at the next level...the highest her/his fullest potential!  

This is the meaning of Areté...the constant pursuit of excellence, leadership, moral virtue, grit, bravery, & digging so deep within oneself that we reach our highest potential and help others achieve theirs.  Leading by example, we live & breathe it in partnership with the athletes we are blessed to coach!  

Everything we do at Areté is with pure intent, purpose and make a difference, a positive impact and help mentor our future leaders for years to come - beyond the court & beyond their successful volleyball career.  Our athletes' life-long career & what they can learn from playing this game is of greater purpose!
