Flooring & Equipment
2008, after experiencing a good amount of success with our juniors’ club program, we were pleased to land a sponsorship with Asics America, which continues today. Premier Academy has advanced in many other areas over the recent years, keeping us on our toes but always excited. For example, 2010 brought our sport the introduction of sand volleyball as an NCAA sport and decisions once again needed to be made with our facility. Once again we jumped in with two feet and made the decision to install outdoor sand volleyball courts adjacent to our indoor facility.
In 2011, our most recent project was an extension of our weight room, which allowed us to hire a second strength coach and take on training more athletes at a time. At the same time, we expanded our Pro-Shop and installed an area for our Athletic Trainer that we were able to bring on our payroll. We felt that bringing on a certified Athletic Trainer added to our investment in injury prevention. During this phase of construction, we also built a private team room that is used exclusively by our 18-1 team when they are in club season. The team room serves as a private recreation and lounge area reserved for the players on our club’s top team. It is sort of a rite of passage and plays a part in promoting the, “work your way up,” club culture in our gym.
