Intensity Volleyball Club (IVC) is an independent volleyball club that trains out of our facility. Our partnership with IVC started after Upward restructured their sports programing to only support recreational sports and the competitive branch of Upward STARS was retired.

IVC was started by Bryan Johnston when he saw a need for a volleyball club that practiced the art of coaching the complete athlete. IVC incorporates Christian character through a great team of coaches. The foundational verse for the club is Romans 5:3-4.

Coach Emma Wien and Coach Matt Wien began with our STARS program at NH 5 years ago. Coach Neal Emminger also converted from coaching STARS through NH to coaching with IVC.
