Marin Juniors is a youth volleyball club sponsored by San Rafael Community Services. Established in 1983, we have a proud history of producing accomplished athletes while fostering a life-long love for the sport. Our balanced approach emphasizes skill development, confidence, and teamwork in a competitive, yet supportive, environment.
We attract and develop outstanding players at all levels and our highly experienced coaching staff presents consistent and unified philosophies and teaching methods. The lessons we teach and the experiences that club volleyball provides will stay with players for years to come. Confidence, integrity, perseverance, sportsmanship, commitment and teamwork are all principles that are introduced in the sport but extend far beyond the gym.
We are not focused on any single high school program. Marin Juniors takes great pride in the diversity of middle and high schools that both our players and coaches represent. The relationships that players build across schools are an extremely valuable part of the club volleyball experience. We support and encourage our players who have aspirations to play in college, and we recognize hose who take their game to the next level.
The club season begins in October with a series of clinics designed to introduce players to the club, our staff and teaching methods. Tryouts are in November and teams are formed shortly after.
Once teams are formed, November and December is filled with organizational and introductory meetings and events, as well as skills clinics and team practices. From January through April, teams will practice twice per week and compete 2-3 times per month on weekends. Starting in March/April (weather permitting), teams will also be introduced to beach volleyball and in May the plan is to move all of the teams outdoors.
During the summer, the club will host summer camps to improve players skills throughout the year and get them ready for their school seasons.
