Success starts here

Iowa PowerPlex Volleyball Club is Iowa’s premier volleyball organization for amateur volleyball players in Iowa. Established in 2008 PowerPlex is a club devoted to the development of not only the volleyball player but the athlete in general.  A combination of skills and athletic development give the athlete the right avenues to succeed.  Members of Iowa PowerPlex will receive the best in coaching, the finest professional philosophy, the best strength/ speed coaches and state of the art training facilities. The members will receive instruction from coaches who have played, coached, evaluated and developed at the highest levels of athletics.  As Iowa PowerPlex players continue in the program, by age 17 and 18, Iowa PowerPlex teams historically have put the best teams on the court.

The teams will compete locally, regionally and nationally in competitive volleyball tournaments.  Since the formation of PowerPlex in 2008, PowerPlex volleyball is changing the way we view amateur volleyball.  First class and always professional, PowerPlex volleyball understands youth development and the importance of not just succeeding now, but getting better from day to day and year to year.

Summer Club Tryouts for 12U-14U & 15-18u for the 2022-2023 Season

Iowa PowerPlex is entering our 13th season as the premier volleyball program. PowerPlex has produced more than 120 college volleyball players, 30 plus D1 commits, collegiate freshman of the year and All Americans, and 2 USA Girls National team players. Every year PowerPlex make strides to improve our training and this year will be no different.

Why PowerPlex: As the biggest club in Des Moines, we look forward to sharing our knowledge and background of more than 65 coaches with experience running 18 programs. Our coaches are highly vetted and have volleyball experience as players and or coaches. Last year 39 of our club coaches played at the collegiate level and many were Collegiate All Americans. We have a strong foundation of youth programs and a beach program which has fueled our club teams into extreme success. In 2022 we had 5 teams qualify for nationals.

Why summer tryouts: There are so many advantages for teams that fully commit over the summer. PowerPlex holds tryouts over the summer to solidify our teams early to help families in many ways: better hotels, better rates, order gear, more time to pay tuition and breakup fees, more time to set up calendars and prepare for travel events.
