Starlings Volleyball Clubs, USA
Beginning with a single inner-city San Diego team in 1996, today Starlings is the largest Junior Volleyball Club in the nation„Ÿserving some 2,500 girls in 38 clubs across America. Clubs stretch from New York City to Los Angeles, from Portland to Phoenix, Arizona. The guiding concept has been to provide an opportunity for girls (ages 10 to18) to participate regardless of their socioeconomic background. Club dues, if any, are a fraction of most Junior Club costs and no girl is turned away because of inability to pay.

The Starlings philosophy is a holistic one: competition is good but sports should also be fun. Finally, an athlete should seek to develop all her talents and for this reason, we proudly promote our annual Literary/Art Contest.

Since its inception, over 150 girls have received collegiate volleyball scholarships.

As we begin the 2007 season, the organization welcomes the addition of new affiliates in Louisville, Ganado (AZ),
Watsonville (CA), Pomona (CA), Shonto (AZ), Cudahy (CA).
