Updated 5/27/20: 
Hello Thunder families!  We are excited to get started too!
However, our theme right now is, "GO SLOW TO GO FAST"!
As of today 5/27, emails were sent out to those incoming and returning players regarding updates. If you did not receive an email please email me and I will add you to the list.  I did have a few emails bounce back so please double check with me if you expected one!
UPDATE: Tempe Union is still discussing strategies for phases of opening and safety strategies to use to open this summer/june-mid July.  Nothing has been decided....yet!  There are other districts promoting opening on June 1st in different phases meaning limitations for training.  Tempe Union and Desert Vista are not rushing into a reactive decision and are working out the best possible plan for the safety of all involved.  I will post more information as I receive it shortly.  In the mean time, it will be helpful to continue working through the clearing process for eligibility through so that your daughter will be cleared by August 1 and able to start right away with boot camp and tryouts.  Please feel free to email me any questions you may have.
Due to the COVID-19 Pandemic lock down and the Governor's state restrictions for social distancing...all summer training, boot camp and tryouts as well as our 2020 fall season are on hold.  Tentative Boot Camp and tryout dates are posted.  The 2020 fall schedule is on our calendar but the reality of any activity is halted until the state, district and AIA clear the way for the safe return.  Please continue to check this website weekly and calendar for updated information regarding summer.  I will be sending out an email soon to all returning players and those incoming players who signed in at the open house in January.  If you are new or did not attend the open house, please send me your email address so I can include you with any information we are sending out.  In the mean time, please feel free to email questions!

Stay safe!

Mission & Vision

Desert Vista is a recognized and well respected volleyball program in the state of Arizona. The success of our program is a direct reflection of the hard work our players put in during the season as well as in the off season. You can expect success that is measured beyond the win-loss record. Success is within the journey as much as it is about reaching the destination. Our success is about uniting a group of individuals to pursue a common goal and overcoming individual differences in order for the team to achieve its potential. Success of the athlete excelling on a personal level on the court as well as off the court by being a part of something bigger than the individual. Our success is about teaching life skills through sports that are necessary to be a winner. The expectations are high for Desert Vista volleyball players. Being on the Desert Vista Volleyball team is a commitment to hard work and dedication that requires the selection of athletes who "bring something special to the court and their team".
