WHERE IT STARTED
MW Power Volleyball was founded in 2016 as OMG Volleyball Club by former college volleyball All-American Erica Smith and husband Jason Smith. Watching volleyball grow within the state of MN, Erica and Jason felt there was a need for a similar club structure in Central MN, focusing on specific training techniques and a higher standard of coaching.
Over the years of coaching JO volleyball, doing college recruiting, and personal training, Erica and Jason decided to continue their passion for sports and experience volleyball from another angle. While growing OMG, Erica took over as the Head Volleyball Coach at Ridgewater College, where she trained and developed her players to compete at a higher level. With the growth of OMG over the years, Jason now runs the club full-time while Erica maintains her position as HC at Ridgewater and assists in directing for OMG.
OMG was created with the idea that learning the fundamental skills of volleyball at a young age can have an immensely positive effect on the growing athletes in our community. However, these skills must be taught the correct way in an environment that is conducive to experiencing discipline, success, and enjoyment.
As OMG, Erica and Jason have had the opportunity to work with some great coaches, amazing athletes, and their families. While OMG is moving in a new direction, our commitment and intention is to continually mentor and help our athlete on and off the court as they journey through life.
Thank you to all of our past and present players -- you all have given our OMG Family a deep meaning to always appreciate!
