"SportsRecruits will allow players and families to better define the right academic and athletic fit for Xtreme student-athletes."- Mark Robinson, Club Director
SportsRecruits is a technology solution that automatically organizes the recruiting process for club staff and players. With SportsRecruits, players share their athletic stats, academic transcripts, event schedule and video. The Built-In Messaging System connects the club to every college coach in the country.
Every college in the nation has a profile on the platform. Using Advanced School Search, a player can easily sift through the options based on the features that matter most to him. For example, if a player has a poor SAT score, he can choose to view only those schools which accept his range. Maybe location is a priority, along with student population density. The search considers this criteria, and displays only the schools most likely to prove a good fit. “SportsRecruits will allow players and families to better define the right academic and athletic fit for Xtreme student-athletes,” said Mark Robinson. When players find the right schools for them, they can contact coaches at those schools within a few taps.
About Xtreme Volleyball Club The Xtreme Volleyball Club was formed in the fall of 1999 by a group of volleyball parents who were looking for a local, affordable, professionally run volleyball organization that could help their daughters improve as players, teammates, and individuals. It was also formed to help improve the level of play in the Finger Lakes Region. This team of parents sought out the help of Kathy and Mark Robinson, the Varsity Volleyball Coaches at Bloomfield CSD, to help provide a strong teaching atmosphere and a professional attitude to their entire coaching staff. After several months of preparation, the team was able to launch a successful season in November of 1999, supporting one 18 year old team and two 16 year old teams. The following November, the Bloomfield Varsity volleyball team went on to win the State Tournament and the word spread through the Finger Lakes Region and beyond that there was a successful club based in Bloomfield. In November of 2000, 112 girls tried out for six teams - two 18 year old teams, three 16 year old teams and one 14 year old team. The 2001 - 2002 season again yielded six teams: one 18 year old team, three 16 year old teams and two 14 year old teams. In summer 2012, Premier Volleyball Club, based on the west side of Rochester, merged with Xtreme under the Xtreme Volleyball Club name. Premier had a history of striving toward the same mixture of player and personal improvement as Xtreme, allowing a smooth merger. After more than fifteen successful USAV seasons, the Xtreme Volleyball Club continues strives to help its players, parents and coaches meet or exceed their individual goals within the framework of a team setting.

Third Annual Xtreme Fair A Huge Success!
The Third Annual Xtreme Fair kicked off the 2016-2017 Xtreme Volleyball season on a high note. New teammates got to know each other as they participated in an array of fun and challenging team exercises.
The Cookie challenge would have been all over Snapchat (if the girls had their phones). The faces were great as the scrunched and squished to move those cookies. And getting to eat the cookies at the end was a nice bonus too!
Xtreme teammates work together to move a tennis ball from one end of the gym to the other without using their hands.
For the second year in a row, (the very competitive) Coach Laura's team narrowly edged out (the EXTREMELY competitive) Coach Robinson's team to take the win. Congrats Fusion!
Thanks to all for a great day of fun all around!
