Tryouts Oct 11th – Sign up NOW !!

Tryouts are scheduled to be at Harker Heights Rec Center this season (different than years past). We have been able to work with our partners at HH Rec Center to use the facility from 1230-530 on the 11th of Oct. Make sure you pay attention what time your age group is scheduled to tryout.

Please make sure you go into the Registration System and signup under online registrations > Tryouts > Register and then click register on the team your daughter wishes to tryout for or click here.

The parent has to register for an account and you have to add a family member to register for the event. This system will give us the ability to communicate with all the members in the club as well as give the parent the ability to see all the information on the player and their team’s upcoming events. You will also be able to make payments and check balances throughout the season. This being our fourth season, we believe this is the best way to set up the season and make sure everyone has the information that you need during the season.

Please fill out the child’s information as best as you can. If you do not have information please enter NA – or TBD and we will complete the rest of the information once the season starts. If you have questions please email or call us.

We are excited about the upcoming season and look forward to answering any questions you may have. We can be reached at 254.307.7407 or email us at pureenergysports@gmail.com.

Tryout Registration and Season Update

Hello and welcome to the 2014-15 Pure Energy Volleyball Season. We are working diligently to update our new Customer relationship management (CRM) website for registration and prepare it for the season. Pure Energy Sports has selected with Sports-CRM to help create a more transparent experience for the parents and players. Our site will be linked off of this website or you can go straight to it here (https://www.sportscrm.net/pureenergysports/default.aspx) Our intention is to have the site up and working no later than Tuesday morning. This will give you the ability to register online, create your profile and be ready for the season. You will also be able to shop at our online store for some great items. We will update our catalog as the season progresses.

In the next few days we will be also updating the website with more information about the upcoming season. This year I am excited to announce that I will be coaching our 18s team. Coach Lisa is working on her MBA and we support her in her pursuit of her higher education goals. She will be assisting other coaches during the season, but will not be able to commit to the time needed to be a head coach. We look forward to her graduating and returning to her position. We have been interviewing coaches for the upcoming season and are still accepting applications for head and assistant coaches. If you are interested in volunteering with us please make sure to email use with your interest. We already have a few volunteers lined up and always looking for great people to help with our athletes.

Tryouts are scheduled to be at Harker Heights Rec Center this season (different than years past). We have been able to work with our partners at HH Rec Center to use the facility from 1230-530 on the 11th of Oct. Make sure you pay attention what time your age group is scheduled to tryout.

2013-14 Awards Party

I would like to thank everyone for a successful 2013-14 season. I would like to thank my coaches for executing the clubs vision. I would like to thank the parents for your commitment to your athlete’s passion to play this wonderful sport of volleyball.  We had a few struggles at the beginning of the season and had to change some aspects of the club. We are continuing to pursue our own facility and we hope to have more information on that in the coming months. We continue to support the local school district and rec centers and are looking forward to continuing our relationship.

This year we had some great success with our senior players going to the next level and younger players are starting to get interest from schools so they can play collegiality.

Stay tuned for tryouts dates and next season play. I expect to have it finalized in the next month.

I will be checking in on the High School Teams over the next few weeks, keep sending us updates and posting on the facebook page. We love to hear how things are going. If you need anything please contact me.

Morena Redmon commits to Oklahoma Wesleyan University

morenaHarker Heights (JSG) 7/28/14 – It is with great pleasure I announce the Morena Redmon has verbally committed to play basketball next season at Oklahoma Wesleyan University in Bartlesville, Oklahoma.

I am very proud of Mo and all the hard work that she put in the last few years.  I had the pleasure of watching her play over the last few years at Harker Heights High School and with our club. She worked hard and followed her dream. I cannot put into words how blessed this club has been to have such talented and special athletes, and more important young adults over these last few seasons.

When we formed this organization over 3 years ago it was to have days like this. I am so proud that this organization can help kids achieve their dream of attending college and continuing playing the sport that they love.

Morena will have her signing on August 3rd at 4PM at Belton Christian Youth Center, 505 E Avenue C, Belton, TX 76513.

Volleyball End of Season Party – Award Ceremony & Basketball College Signing

Well, we are finally getting to holding our season party for this past season,  My sincere apologies for this taking so long.

We had a hard time getting a location and with the weather being so terribly hot lately, we opted to have in indoor party instead of at the lake… The girls would enjoy the lake but honestly for those that don’t make it to the water, it would be a miserable day.

We will be holding an open gym/award party/basketball signing this Sunday, August 3rd 2-5pm at Belton Christina Youth Center, 505 E Avenue C, Belton, TX 76513.

It is very easy to get to and is pretty much right off I35 on the access road. Click on the address for a map.

Party is for the girls as well as family.  We will only be doing snacks and finger type foods and drinks due to the limited time of  3 hours(as opposed to all day at the lake).

Please RSVP to the email you received as soon as possible so we have an idea of how many will attend. If you did not get an email please contact us at pureenergysports@gmail.com or 254.307.7407

We welcome parents to come out and be ready to play volleyball as well as the girls, if you would like.  We will have the open gym time, followed by awards and 2 college basketball signings from our PE Basketball family.

We look forward to seeing you and this is a great day to get one last touch on the ball before high school tryouts and for our younger girls, anytime on the court in the summer helps you get ready for your tryouts as well.

See you soon!

 

New Online Registration and Online Store

Happy Forth of July weekend to the Pure Energy Family !! 

This has been and exciting few weeks for us. We have started the migration to a complete online presence with account management. This will free up time from the previous way we kept records and will give all parents the ability to go online and make payments, check their balances and order items. You will also be able to set up for automatic payment on a set date. The new system will also give us Player Profile Page for each player. This will be a great location for the players to point college coaches. It will list their schedule as well as highlight videos. It will also be a location to pass data for upcoming tournaments as well.

The portal is powered by SportsCRM. The board selected them based on the ability to meet our requirements and our future expansion. If you have signed up for a summer camp you have already experienced the new site. You do not have to wait to signup for lessons or a class to enter into the system.

Here is a preview of what the new site will look like when you log in:
