Missy grew up in Tulsa, OK and graduated from Bishop Kelley High School in 1990. Missy was selected to the all state volleyball team for four years and was the MVP of the state tournament in 1989 and 1990 when Bishop Kelly won state.
The Ultimate Performance Volleyball Club, founded in 2016 by Missy McCaw-Frette, is a family-owned and operated business. Believe us when we say, our family knows the business of volleyball inside and out. And as much as we have seen and experienced firsthand, it is our goal to keep evolving this club in a way that allows us to share the latest techniques in skill development from the fundamentals to the most advanced athletic skills as we seek to create a safe environment for young athletes to learn and grow.
We built the foundation of the Ultimate Performance Volleyball Club on a strong belief that sport intersects with life. That the lessons we learned as young athletes on the court were also as important in our everyday lives. Learning to work well with others as a team. Learning to communicate. Learning the importance of hard work, perseverance, and sportsmanship. And most of all, learning the value of loyalty and commitment in maintaining the highest level of ethical behavior when dealing with both adversity and success.
Our 17,000 square foot training facility is a place where we develop people as well as players, in an environment promoting positive reinforcement, encouragement and motivation along with a healthy dose of discipline and respect. Where we hope our athletes will develop the same passion for volleyball as our family has over the years, sharing memories together enjoying the sport of volleyball as our parents taught us. Adopting a philosophy of leadership where we learn by example and strive to maintain the highest level of competitive excellence as a team. And to remember that at the end of the day, when the net comes down and the balls are put away, our actions as people speak loud and clear.
From top to bottom, Ultimate Performance Volleyball Club maintains a consistent coaching philosophy designed to integrate 150+ years of firsthand playing, coaching and administrative expertise. Our coaches continuously seek professional advancement through their participation at all levels of volleyball, from the youth development programs, to high performance, collegiate, and national team involvement, and even at the professional and Olympic level.
Our focus is on the athlete’s experience and well-being. Our goal is to share the information we have learned through firsthand experience. Our hope is that you and your family will find a passion for volleyball and make lasting memories together just as our family has done for over 37 years.
“My life was enriched through my experience as a competitive volleyball athlete, opening new doors to my education as a student-athlete at the University of Southern California, meeting new and lifelong friends, and developing leadership skills that have benefitted me on the court and in my business life. Both my husband, Dave, and I were collegiate student-athletes competing at the highest level. Now, we are passing down what we learned to our children, Emma and Lars, and to yours through our efforts with Ultimate Performance Volleyball Club.”Missy McCaw-Frette, Club Director/Owner.
