Club History

Team Momentum was founded in 1997 by Mel Askins. In 2005 Keith O’Leary became Club Director and guided the Club from three teams into one of the largest and most successful clubs in the Gateway Region. Along with Associate Club Director Heather Cumbee (Kea), the club has established a solid reputation for quality training and competitive teams.
 A focus on complete training has produced excellent results. Players should start developing good habits and strong fundamentals at younger ages. Combined with consistent speed and agility training (plyometrics) at practice, players build on a solid foundation to develop skills and improve athletic performance over time. Each season players learn advanced skills, practice consistent playing systems and build athleticism to achieve long term success in volleyball.
Full time staff include club administrators and master coaches. Each master coach oversees specific age groups to promote consistency and quality for each team.
Each season Momentum regularly has teams placing in the top brackets of tournaments and earning appearances at National tournaments.  Team Momentum players are consistently recruited to play volleyball in college. At the high school level Momentum players typically earn starting positions on many top varsity teams in the area.
