History of Locals

Allegro created the Locals program Spring season of 2006 as an option for athletes interested in high level club experience but could not commit to a travel team.  Since then over 3300 individual girls have played over 5700 seasons of locals. Each year 400+ girls participate in travel and local teams making Allergo the #1 program in NJ by choice. 

Learning Objectives

We have a curriculum developed by the best instructors and coaches in the world! The curriculum incorporates systems taught by Gold Medal Squared, American Volleyball Coaches Association, Art of Coaching, Positive Coaching Alliance, USA Volleyball and used by teams like BYU, Penn State, Team USA and others top level teams! We have also developed and adapted these systems over the last 20 years for our younger players allowing them to accelerate learning skills.

Positive Coaching

A positive approach gets the most from youth and high school athletes, which is what coaches, parents and the athletes themselves want. Staying positive also helps youth get the most out of sports.  The positive approach includes a program for coaches, players and parents reducing pressure and stress while still encouraging competition and improvement.

Virtual Coaching

Allegro Virtual Coach complements your on court coaches with video analytics and evaluations. Virtual coach starts on day one at placements when each player gets skills video recorded and then analyzed by our club directors. Player’s skill are assessed and development plans are created to assist the coaching staff with practice plans.

Placements

One team or two does not fit all.  Most age groups at Allegro have 3 to 4 teams. It is important that athletes are placed in groups by age and ability to create optimal training environments.  Proper grouping starts with player assessments of skills at placements. Getting placed incorrectly too high means the player won't get to work on fundamental skills that are taught at the lower groups while struggling to succeed.  

Competitions

Gameday's provide competitions at the right level featuring teams from Allegro Locals, Allegro Travel, outside clubs and town teams.  Gamdays typically will have 15-20 teams competing.

COVID-19 Pre-Cautions

Keep Allegro Safe - As a requirement to participate in Allegro Volleyball we all must agree to actively stay away from the virus.  Everyone wants to get back to playing volleyball but we want to also be safe.   We will disinfect and have pre-cautions but more important than disinfecting the gym, we want to stress the importance of not getting infected and not bringing the virus to the gym.

Reduced players per court.  In the fall season we will reduce the number of players per court.   PowerZone is 30,000 Sf at 6 courts, normally we have 2 teams practice together. We will keep the courts to 1 team per court this fall so we are doubling the space per teams and have room to properly social distance.  We will keep the bay doors open and fans on thru the fall and winter as long as we can to improve air circulation.

Redesigned Drills - We have redesigned many of our drills to increase social distancing while still providing the necessary training.  More individual skills work and drills with the full court as opposed to shared courts and less crowded drills.  

Disinfecting the gym:   We have invested in a ozone disinfecting system. Volleyballs are round and very hard to effectively wipe clean.  We disinfect our locker rooms and equipment with a ozone fogging system.  This allows for all surfaces to be properly sanitized.  

Player Covid-19 Contact policy: We have strict protocols on when player, coaches and family members who comes in contact with someone who tests positive for covid-19.
