BOYS CLUB

NEVBC Boys Vision

Our vision at NEVBC is to train our athletes with high level technical and skills training, and in doing so, build the most competitive teams in our region at every age group. 

Our Boy's Club Director, Jon Mercado, is deeply committed to providing the most professional boys volleyball experience in the area. Jon's goal is to build a community around the sport that is dedicated to the NEVBC values of SIMPLICITY, GROWTH, COMMITMENT, & COMPETITION.

NEVBC Boys Club Teams

In Fall 2019, we started our first Boys Club for Grades 7-12. Here's what you can expect from NEVBC Boys:

  • Team practice at Northeast Volleyball Club in our 10,500 square foot facility with 3 dedicated Sport Courts

  • Expanded 17-week season, starting in late October and finishing in mid-March before high school tryouts

  • Elite coaching staff, including proven boys high school and club coaches and former Division I and pro players

  • Focus on fundamentals and individual technique in team practice, in addition to competitive team play

  • 2x weekly (Regional teams) or 3x weekly (National teams) practices

  • Custom sublimated Ren Athletics game jersey, shorts, and gear

  • College recruiting process guidance and support 

  • Access to NEVBC coaches for private and small group training

  • U16-U18 Teams - 2x weekly strength and conditioning sessions with Upper Deck Fitness, including one session in our onsite weight room 

U15 Team Program

Our U15 Team will practice 2x/week in our gym for an expanded 17-week season and play a modified tournament schedule, with three regional 1-day tournaments. This program is perfect for multi-sport athletes who are looking to try club volleyball, with less of a commitment than the U16-U18 level teams.

Tournament Dates: Jan 4, Jan 25 or 26, and Feb 29

Head Coach: Coach Frog (Mark) Ogilvie

U16 - U18 Teams Program & Costs

Our U16-U18 teams will practice 3x/week in our gym for an expanded 17-week season, including one Compete Day on the weekends. In addition, these teams will have a volleyball-specific strength and conditioning program in partnership with Upper Deck Fitness, which will include 2 weekly workouts before or after team practice. These teams will play a competitive tournament schedule and attend at least one qualifier. Team rosters will be kept small to increase each athlete's game experience, so this program requires the highest level of commitment.

Program Cost: $2750 + $525 Travel Fee

Does not include Nationals postseason practice and tournament entry fees.

Head Coaches: Coach Jon Mercado & Coach Matt Somerville

TOURNAMENT SCHEDULES:

16-1 Boys Tournament Schedule

18-1 Boys Tournament Schedule
