A smile can change many things. Imagine what a smile can do for someone that is in pain.

Drop by drop a river is formed.

Good evening!

I regret to announce that I am closing the door for Club Fifthteen for the moment and will not be offering any summer camps or training at this time.

After a few days of thinking, it was not easy to make this announcement. Covid19 affecting our communities and other forces that I have no control were some of the variables that forced me to take this painful decision.
Club 15 was founded around Sydney and other local volleyball kids.

From a group of 8 athletes we jump to help over 200 kids a years for the past 8 years. What a ride!

I have seen athletes with tears of joy and sadness or nervousness on the court. I have seen athletes grow and learned how to become a better athlete and young adults. I have seen pictures of us share by parents were we can see ourselves having a special moment on the court. I saw positive relationships growing between coaches and athletes. The type of relationship that help you grow as an athletes and help us grow as a coaches. These moments I will never forget. Many times I saw a little bit of my daughter Sydney in each one of our trainees.

I am broken. But many times you brought a smile back to my face without you even knowing it. Dancing on the sidelines when the music was playing, high pitch screams of joy, crazy comments, jokes, a high five, great plays, great training sessions, big smiles, and big hugs. For that I want to thank you. These moments, I will never forget.

To my trainers, thank you! Thank you for being there with me to help with all this wonderful athletes that we help in the area and adjacent town as far as Mount Vernon and Jerseyville. Mariah Vahlkamp, Michelle Nicole, Julia Billhartz, Alexa Hoelscher. You guys helped me to keep Sydney Irizarry legacy alive and helped without hesitation whe. I needed you the most. I will never forget this.

To all of our old abs new athletes please remember these words:

-You are strong and you can do anything.
-Be yourself at all times. Do not allow others to influence you path because everything you do now will shape your future.
-Love your friend(s) and do not let go that friendship(s). There will be a point in time that you will try to come back to that person and it may be too late.
-Open your heart to new people regardless of who they are. You never know what that person is going through.
-Be diverse.
-Give without expecting something in return.
-If you make a mistake, do not quit. Find a solution so you can learn how to handle it in the future.
-Hard work and team work is more valuable than win and a championship.
-Follow good positive trends. Do not get caught in the bad.

You are learning to navigate through life. Not everything in life will be good or positive, but you will learn from these hard times. Remember, you are strong, you are beautiful, you are you. Become a warrior and never step down. And if you fall, stand up and rise to the occasion. Do not let others take your joy.

Every day I tell myself this phrase: “Drop by drop a river is formed” Little by little we grow. You have a great life ahead of you. Do not worry about those who ignore us or are bad to us. Be happy, be wild, be adventurous, stay positive, be yourself. Meet more people. Make your circle grow with positive people.

I want to say how proud I am of each one of the athletes that we touched their life’s at one point in life. Please remember this: “In a word that You can be anything…..Be yourself”.

Volleyball was my last connection to my daughter and it is very hard to let go.

Thank you! You will be always in my heart and I love each one of you in a very special way.
