“Have not I commanded thee? Be strong and of a good courage; be not afraid, neither be thou dismayed: for the LORD thy God is with thee whithersoever thou goest.”

There has been an abundance of spring volleyball opportunities, and the Patriots have taken full advantage. The highlight last month was our Sand Volleyball fundraiser at Sideliners Grill. More than a dozen teams turned out for a Saturday filled with fun and beautiful weather, and the day would have been a complete success without raising a dollar. But those in attendance made it even better, helping to raise almost $3500 for the program.
The Patriots also enjoyed a wonderful fellowship day during Spring Break, the first social action for many of our new families. The day kicked off with sand volleyball (of course) at Landa Park and was capped with a movie at Stars and Stripes Drive-in. However, the social event of the month was a group excursion to San Marcos to watch world-class indoor
volleyball between Texas State and Texas. More than 25 families enjoyed a rare spring collegiate contest between these two national powerhouses right in our own backyard.
Aside from all of the fun, the players have been busy in the gym, too. Skills clinics have been in session since February and will continue through May 3rd. These physically fun and
challenging two-hour sessions are open to 5th-grade to 12th-grade players of all skills levels, from beginners to collegiate hopefuls. These clinics are a great way for off-season athletes to get into the gym. Sessions are held weekly on Mondays at San Antonio’s premier volleyball facility, the brand new Force Sports Center at 7218 N Loop 1604 E., and led by the FEAST coaching staff. Cost is $45/mo per player. Register below!

We would like to take the time to welcome our new Head Volleyball Commissioner, Kevin Force! Kevin and his lovely wife Laura have been members of FEAST for several years. They have two daughters who enjoy playing for the FEAST Volleyball program and a son who plays for the FEAST Basketball program. We look forward to a great season with Kevin at the helm!
Volleyball is enjoying a slower pace here in our off-season, but we are still doing some work behind the scenes to prepare for all that is to come. We hosted two successful dining fundraisers raising just over $200 for our program. These were such enjoyable ways to spend some time with friends with benefit to FEAST Volleyball. Stay tuned to the Manna and our social media for the next opportunity. Thank you in advance and high five!
Skills clinics begin in February. Both boys and girls fifth grade and up of all athletic levels are invited to join us on Monday afternoons through May. Come and see what all the hype is about. The cost is $45 per month per player. Our clinics will be held at FORCE Sports gym at their new location, 7218 N Loop 1604 E in San Antonio. Knowledgeable, experienced, and FUN coaches will be on-site to help new players get started, and veteran players get better. Training will be available for all levels.
Until then, we encourage our FEAST volleyball Patriots to stay active. Activities including low impact plyometrics are great for conditioning and maintaining some strength and endurance. Work on quickness and footwork with multiple sets of drills like ladder drills or low impact jumps for 15 seconds with short rests in between. Watch for more training suggestions from your coaches on social media throughout the season.
