At OPV we pride ourselves on providing the best, truly qualified coaches around. To us, that means they have the context of playing at a high level (college) or coaching at a high level themselves (or both!) Afterall, how can we train our players to play at a high level if we haven't been there ourselves? We pay our coaches better than anyone around because we value their experience and expertise. Club is an investment, take a look below at what you are investing in when it comes to coaching.
