Are you looking for something different next season? Next Top Recruits is launching a NEW Volleyball Club for the 2022-23 season.

We have helped over 175 high school athletes achieve their dream of playing in college.

After starting a successful softball organization, Ken Carlyle of Next Top Recruits, has partnered with Jason Tew, known locally for his volleyball expertise, to start a NEW volleyball club for the elite athlete in the Triad.

“My success on the softball field made me take a harder look at the experiences my daughters were having on the volleyball court. With Jason’s volleyball expertise and my recruiting knowledge, we can make this the best club in the Triad for the athlete that wants to become a better player or compete at the collegiate level.”


“With my youngest daughter off to college in the Fall, it felt like the right time to get back into coaching at the club level. I look forward to partnering with Next Top Recruits to help shape the culture of this new program.”

Jason Tew

“I believe that preparation is the key to success. Ken and Jason have a great vision for this program and I look forward to making communication and logistics support a top priority for this club.”
