    How To Start A Jr. Volleyball Club

    By Weaver 09/07/2016, 8:15pm CDT

    Starting a Junior Olympic volleyball program can be both a rewarding and a frustrating experience. The sources of the rewards are rather apparent – the opportunity to see those young people grow and develop, the excitement of athletic competition, and the joy of a job well done.
    The challenges, on the other hand, can mostly be avoided by careful preseason planning which must then be carried out throughout the entire year. The majority of the frustrations arise not out of the players or the coaches, but the administrative details.

    How to Start a Junior Olympic Volleyball Program Basic Guide

    When declaring a club in the Gulf Coast Region, please contact our region commissioner, Philip Bryant with the following information:

    • Club Name
    • Club Director
    • Contact Info (email, phone, address)
    • Practice Facility Address

    Once you declare your club for our region, you will be assisted with registering coaches and staff as USA members, safe sport certificates and coaching requirements.
