Columbia Junior Volleyball Club











"Since 1990, the purpose of Columbia Junior Volleyball has been to provide the highest level of volleyball competition, and the best volleyball experience for our players. As a club, we strive to be the best on and off the court, and to help our players to be the best they can be in volleyball, in the classroom, and in life."

Columbia JVBC 2017 Season

Don't miss this camp!

One of the most instructive volleyball camps for HS & MS age players is returning this July. Don't miss the chance to work with Dr. Mashallah Farokhmanesh (Associate Head Coach at UNLV) on both general and positional volleyball skills. His collegiate programs have made 11 trips to the NCAA tournament, including three sweet 16 appearances and twice in the Elite 8.

The All-Skills camp is July 10-12, and the Positional Skills camp is July 13-14. Both camps are at Southridge HS this year, and players can sign up for both camps to have a full week of instruction.

For more information, check the camp brochure for registration information.

 

Post-Season updates

We're steadily adding to our information for teams headed to post-season Summer tournaments. Check out our Post-Season Team Update Center by clicking the menu entry on our schedule page. We have three teams already scheduled, and we may add additional teams. Keep checking back as we add information.

Thank You!

We'll have more about the results shortly, but a very big thank you to all the players and parents who worked so hard to make both Columbia tournaments a success this weekend. We had lots of fun, drank plenty of coffee, saw some amazing volleyball, and hauled plenty of garbage out at the end of the day. These tournaments couldn't happen without lots of people pitching in to make everything happen. We notice when players and families pitch in, and we're very grateful for all the help!

A big thank you as well to Steve Bump who served as our day official for both days. Steve did a great job!

Grade Reports are due

Columbia players in High School need to bring a COPY of their latest grade report showing grade point average to their coach. Bring your copies to practice no later than Sunday, Feb. 26th. (Team coaches will give copies to our club director.)

Middle School age players should bring a copy of their most recent progress report. (They probably don't have gpa yet.)

How to be famous. The 2017 edition.

If you've been watching Columbia's website for any length of time, you know that we write about every team's results. When we have great results to write about, we also like to include photos. Sometimes, we are actually waiting for a team photo to do the story about another championship. We get those photos from all kinds of places... text or email messages to Chris, Instagram (columbiavb), Facebook (it helps to be friends with Chris, find him), Twitter (@columbiajrs), or even (believe it or not) handed to us on disk or usb.

If you've got a great couple of photos, send them to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it., and remember to take a team photo EVERYTIME your team wins out at the end of a tournament. We love those championship photos.

Attention Las Vegas-bound parents

Mandalay Bay ResortFor 16-Black and 17-Black parents... If you haven't already (or even if you have), please email John L - This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. with you request for rooms for the Las Vegas Classic. (He needs the number of rooms, single king or two queens preference for each room, and a list of people who will be in those rooms. He also needs your arrival and departure dates.) Please get this to him asap. Once we have finished our room block, you'll be given a phone number to call in and reserve your room from our block. Update: Treasure Island seems to have backed out of their original pricing, so we have blocked rooms at Mandalay Bay. We'll have instructions for parents to claim their rooms from the club block in about a week according to the tournament housing office.

16-Red, continue to watch our website. We hope to have that team make it off the waitlist, but have no idea how likely that is yet. Thanks!

Practice Reminders

Please! Remember the following rules for behavior around our practices:

  • Park only in designated parking spaces. DO NOT park in the bus loading zone. This is not ok even if you see someone else from another event doing exactly that.
  • DO NOT enter the gym until a Columbia coach gives the ok at the start of practice. We are often following school teams and we need to respect their time in the gym. (Even if the gym appears empty, wait for a Columbia coach to give the ok... until then, wait in the hallway.)
  • We always welcome parents at our practices. Please let your child be in charge of their own practice time. Let them work with our coaches without worrying about your approval, and let them learn to take charge of their experience. We support your coaching of your children through everything else in their life, but practices and matches belong to them and their team.
  • Let your team coach know if you would like to help in any way. We're a volunteer organization.

Thanks!
