    Our Mission 

    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.


    CLUB PHILOSOPHY

    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:

    • Volleyball should be fun and educational.
    • Everyone must put their own interests second to the needs of the team.
    • There is value in hard work and sacrifice.
    • One should exemplify true sportsmanship.
    • Every time you enter a gym, you should learn something about yourself.
    • Athletics should complement academics.
    • Making your best effort takes courage. Courage is habit-forming.
    • Focus and passion are components of effort

    Why MDJRS?

    MDJRS is a non-profit organization that was founded by Club Director, Xiangrong Liu, in 2003. Started with 4 teams, MDJRS now has become one of the largest and professional training clubs in Maryland. In the 2020 season, we had 25 girl’s teams, 2 boy’s teams and a total of 306 players. MDJRS not only creates opportunities for various levels of volleyball athletes, we also provide student-athletes with sound fundamental volleyball skills and develop each player to their maximum potential.

    • In 2020, we have 4 teams qualified for USAV Juniors National Championships (13,14,16 and 17 Elite Black). 3 Elite Black teams ranked top 2 in the Chesapeake Region and rest 3 Elite Black Teams ranked top 5 in the Region. Our Open and Regional teams also make huge improvements over the season every year.
    •  Year after year, MDJRS continues to help numerous players to play Division I, Division II, Division III volleyballs.
    • Varsity athletes, from Maryland Juniors, compete throughout the area, many of whom earn all county and all state honors.
    • We have our own dedicated 11 courts practice facility; our teams never have to worry about where their next practice will be. 
    •  MDJRS hosts many CHRVA tournaments, which not only provides a valuable opportunity for players to compete and improve in game plays, but also create a convenient environment for all players and parents.

    SERIOUS ATHLETES

    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.

    SERIOUS COACHES

    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.

    SERIOUS COMPETITION

    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.
