O’NEALS — With the school season for volleyball coming to an end, it’s time for most volleyball players to start thinking about playing for a club. Club volleyball has become more and more popular over the past few years for high school and elementary age girls.

Volleyball players will often play for a club to stay conditioned during their off season, or, new players will join a club to improve their skills and become familiar with the game. Club volleyball begins in January and ends midway through the month of May.

In the past, there have been few options for girls in the mountain area who want to play for a club, especially the girls who attend or live near Minarets. Often times these girls will drive all the way to Fresno to play club volleyball.

Last year, the Minarets Volleyball program started its own mountain area volleyball club, to provide an option closer to home for a lot of girls. The Mountain Precision Volleyball Club offers teams for ages under 14, 15, 16. They also offer a 12 and under team which will take players from ages 9 to 12. The more players that try out, the more teams the club will be able to put together.

Because the club is so new, organizers currently only provide “area” teams, which means all tournaments that the teams attend will be in the Fresno or Madera area.

The cost to play may vary based on the number of players but the baseline prices are: $300 for 12 and under, and $400 for all other ages. The cost to play will also include a $75 NCVA membership fee.

Mountain Precision is a club that strives to not only make volleyball fun, but to create a bond between players.

This mantra is echoed by Synovia Wold, a Minarets freshman and player for Mountain Precision who says, “I loved playing for Mountain Precision because it gave me the opportunity to meet new people and to play under new coaches. I made new friends that I will never forget.”

MPVB is open to experienced players and beginners, all girls are encouraged to tryout!
