OUR STORY

 

THE DIFF STORY

Alan and Trisha Kroll built The Diff in the Fall of 2010. They established this non-profit organization with the sole purpose of trying to make a difference in the lives of young athletes. Alan and Trisha have had a heart for young people and sports for as long as they can remember.


In 2012, Trisha started The Diff VBC. In the club’s first year the 14 Black team finished 3rd in the region and qualified for Junior Nationals in the USA Division. In 2013-2014 (The Club’s second year of existence), the 15 Black team finished 4th in the Region and qualified for Junior Nationals in the National Division. In 2014-2015 The Diff 16 Black got 5th at Nationals in the Patriot division. In 2015-2016 The Diff 17 Black team won JNQs and clinched the National bid for the RMR region and The Diff 16 Black team  earned a Bronze Medal at Girls Junior Nationals in Indianapolis being one of the only teams from Colorado to Medal at Nationals that year. In 2016-2017 The Diff 17s team placed 2nd in Open in Las Vegas and Qualified at the Big South Qualifier in the USA Division. In 2017-2018 The Diff 17s team won the Windy City Qualifier and qualified for Nationals and the Diff 18s team got 2nd at Crossroads and qualified for nationals and The Diff 16s won the Junior National Qualifier for the Rocky Mountain Region and qualified for nationals.  In 2018-2019 The Diff 18s won Crossroads and placed 5th at Nationals, The Diff 17s won JNQs and qualified for Nationals and The Diff 16s got second at Far West Qualifier and qualified for Nationals. Trisha has loved seeing the positive impact The Diff VBC has made in the lives of so many athletes over the years and is excited for The Arete Volleyball Club to continue to make a difference in years to come!

THE ARETE STORY

Since 2010, the Diff became a very well known club in the Colorado area and nationally because of their success and character on and off the court. The positive impact the club had on each player and their families was very apparent and something that meant a lot to the then coach, Josh Kreunen. In the new role of club director, Josh aspires to continue the vision of the Diff club director, Trisha Kroll. Arete Volleyball Club will continue a strong track record of preparing athletes for the next level and placing them into various levels of post-high school volleyball that fit each individual by developing the mental and physical aspects of being a complete athlete.
