About Our Programs

We offer several programs for participants of all levels.

Camps & Development Programs - We have several camp offerings throughout the year, but the majority of camps are in the summer.  There is something for everyone!

Competitive Club Teams - There are several levels of teams available from local to national.  Tryouts for these teams begin in November.  

Recreational Leagues - A great opportunity for a group of friends or previous teammates to play together in a weekly competitive environment.  Most leagues are held after the school season in the fall/early winter. 

Private Lessons - If you feel your daughter needs more individualized coaching then this is your best option. 


Little Bumpers Camp

Welcome to Dead Frog Volleyball!

Dead Frog Volleyball is a premier club that has served the southwest Michigan area for several years. The original mastermind behind the club was Jack Magelssen who is the winningest high school coach in the United States with approximately 1,800 victories!  He worked to establish Dead Frog as a premier club in the area and has seen several players go on to play at the highest level.  The club recently moved into the Courthouse Athletic Center in Portage and has been able to expand its offerings because of that merge.

We are committed to teaching the game of volleyball and training our participants grades K-12 in a positive, competitive, and family-oriented environment with coaches who are well-educated, passionate about the sport and will lead with high integrity.
