Nationally-renown club based in Deerfield Beach, FL, joins 3STEP Sports’ rapidly expanding volleyball division to take program to new heights


WILMINGTON, Mass. (Jan. 20, 2022)3STEP Sports, the most impactful youth sports ecosystem in the nation, has acquired nationally-renowned Tribe volleyball, an elite club out of Deerfield Beach, Fla., to add to its growing volleyball division.

Tribe has adopted the Gold Medal Squared (GMS) methods of teaching and training and is GMS certified. The club draws on its experienced group of coaches—more than 100 years combined at every level—and bases its training and philosophy on human kinetics, psychology, organizational behavior and statistics.

“Tribe has been synonymous with success over the years and so has 3STEP,” said Tribe club director Dean Barboza. “By aligning with such a tremendous organization with unbelievable resources and talent we will be able to continue to take Tribe to new heights.”

Tribe has produced dozens of Division I college players over the years and prides itself on discipline, consistency and the ability to help players reach their full potential.

“Knowing that our players will be trained using the best methodology and developed as completely as possible in a uniform system from year to year not only builds confidence in our players, but our parents as well,” Barboza continued.

“Tribe is a huge addition to our volleyball group,” said 3STEP founder and CEO David Geaslen. “Tribe has long been the leader in its region and is one of the best clubs in the nation. We look forward to helping them build and continue to develop and train players at every level.”

The 3STEP reach spans 40+ states and serves more than 3 million athletes across eight sports through industry-leading events, nationally spanning club programs, premier media content and more. The mission of 3STEP is to be the standard of the youth sports experience and create consistency in the industry.
