    Boys Volleyball Information: Tryouts take place the first week of September. Practices run twice a week throughout the season, and each team competes in 8 to 15 tournaments at various Chicago suburban locations. All teams will participate in the Chicago National Qualifier (at McCormick Place) in either the open or club level. Top teams will also compete in the Indianapolis Bid Event, and the National Championship in Phoenix Arizona. 

    Our boys volleyball teams draw young athletes from across the western suburbs and are led by some of the most qualified coaches in the Chicago area. In 2016 our middle-school boys program was one of the best in Illinois, and we can't wait to take that reputation into our 2017-18 season. Our club teams are an outstanding tool for developing boys' skills, love for the game and understanding of the strategies and tactics of volleyball while strongly preparing them for their middle-school and high-school seasons.
