Maryland Juniors Volleyball Club is non-profit community athletic organization which is under the leadership of Chesapeake Region Volleyball Association and USA Volleyball Association. MDJRS provides volleyball training to students 10-18 years old, from the DC and Baltimore areas. Our goal is to promote volleyball development for juniors in the area and prepare the young student-athletes to play high school volleyball and beyond.
First and foremost, Maryland Juniors VBC is an educational organization designed to develop responsible members of society. We believe the underlying values of athletics are fundamental to players' development as athletes, students, and young adults. Although our primary goal is to develop teams that will be competitive in the Chesapeake Region and at the national level, we recognize the most important lessons we teach extend beyond the gym. The value of work ethic and team work are at the heart of everything we teach and emphasize. Here are some examples of things in which we believe:
Maryland Juniors is looking for athletes with strong volleyball skills but more importantly is looking for athletes with high potential (attitude, size, strength, speed). Athletes must commit to 4-6 hours a week of practice and 2-3 tournaments a month. Grades are also important for college play and must be maintained.
Heavy emphasis is placed on learning fundamental skills correctly as well as volleyball specific conditioning and court sense. This coaching team currently has prepared players for national teams and has taken club teams to nationals.
Teams will be traveling to many of the best tournaments in the nation. This exposes the athlete to a higher level of competition than found in the region and provides the exposure needed to locate the best college program for them.
