A common myth - many players in rural Nebraska don’t get the opportunity to play club volleyball unless they are willing to travel to bigger cities. 

In actuality, smaller clubs prevail throughout Nebraska. Many high school teams have their own club or an area offers a club for numerous players from different schools.

Often these clubs start playing in tournaments in late February or early March to allow their athletes to finish their basketball season. The teams usually play in silver divisions at USAVB or JVA Tournaments. 

In addition to club volleyball in the spring, many leagues are available for high school teams to play in. Some leagues have up to 15 teams and offer varsity and junior varsity divisions.

This winter PrepDig will be highlighting many clubs in rural Nebraska.
