ABOUT US

Since its establishment in 2015 by Jesi Grisham-Perez, SetterU's mission has been to spark the passion of volleyball athletes, starting in Central Texas.  With a specific emphasis on mastering the art of setting, we've nurtured numerous setters, earning a reputation that extends well beyond Texas borders. Our dedication as a premier resource for setters to chase dreams and harness their potential is widely recognized.

 

Central to our philosophy is the belief that laying the right foundation is pivotal from day one. We're firm advocates for nipping bad habits early, ensuring a smooth player journey. We believe that greatness dwells in the finer points, and our coaches are committed to imparting techniques endorsed by top coaches and athletes worldwide. We are dedicated to the pursuit of training evolution that results in advancing skills and aspirations.

SetterU is more than a club—it's an exclusive community made for mastering the intricate craft of setting. Our experienced coaches, with over 80 years combined, are driven by an enduring passion for volleyball. Unified by consistent training philosophies, we stand firm in the belief that honing the basics is the bedrock of success, regardless of one's desired level of achievement.  

 

SetterU's influence goes beyond the volleyball court. We recognize setters' pivotal role—consistency, trustworthiness, dependability, and leadership are inherent traits. As the vital link between coaches and players, they radiate excellence both on and off the court.

 

Our vision reaches beyond individual players. SetterU envisions a broader system—a network involving clubs, colleges, parents, recruiters—all converging with a common goal: developing and enhancing setters' performance. We anticipate a future where clubs and colleges recognize the value of SetterU training, investing in this specialized coaching. Our aim is to be more than just a training program; we aspire to elevate the setting standard across the volleyball landscape.

 

For parents, SetterU represents a pathway to unlocking their child's potential. They entrust us with their children's growth, understanding the unique journey we facilitate.

 

For college recruiters and coaches, SetterU is a badge of excellence—a sign of exceptional skill and unwavering commitment.

 

Our focus extends beyond refining skills. We're committed to nurturing well-rounded individuals. As we amplify on-court skills, we concurrently nurture emotional intelligence, leadership qualities, communication skills extending to teammates and coaches, underpinned by character, integrity, and accountability. SetterU isn't just a program; it's a transformative catalyst. We're shaping not only exceptional setters but also inspiring, empathetic leaders—the very leaders our world needs.
