Member Testimonials

Hi Dana,

Just wanted to say how much we love having the family membership to Glass City. It is wonderful to be able to have gym time to practice volleyball with our daughter not only because we are able to improve her skills but also allowing us to spend time with her doing something she loves.  We really appreciate the extra effort you put into making sure this is a great experience for us.

Wayne Martin

Glass City provides an excellent volleyball and basketball experience.  I have been very impressed with the high level of service we have received. The growth in skills we have seen with kids in Glass City's programs has exceeded my expectations.  I'm looking forward to another great year at Glass City!  

Jim Nowaczyk 

I love the annual facility membership I have through Glass City. My daughter wants to keep up with her volleyball skills all year long, and we now have the ability to do that at Glass City Athletics. In this Northwest climate, it is a terrific option, at a very reasonable cost. Also, Dana has been so wonderful and accommodating whenever we schedule the court, which is often. What a great idea!!!
