Unified Volleyball is in its 5th year and located in Auburn Hills.  Their mission is to train youth athletes to improve and compete at their highest level possible, whether they are working to make their school team, winning a state championship, or aspiring to play in college.

Often a player, and sometimes their parents, put too much stock in the team their child makes.  For example, not making a 1s team can be devastating to both the player and the parents.  But at most clubs, the 2s team is often just as talented.  Here we will showcase the 17-2s team playing for Unified, who is off to a great start.

The 17-2 team coach by Rick Wooten-Smith was off to a fabulous start before the abrupt hiatus to club volleyball.  So remarkable, they took down Legacy 1 Adidas and their own club mates, Unified National 1, on the same day at JVA Rock-n-Rumble in January.  These two victories propelled them to a 13th place finish out of 24 teams in the open division.
