JVBC is a non‐profit organization that provides youth opportunities to develop and improve their volleyball skills in a competitive environment. The focus is to gain knowledge, improve skills, promote sportsmanship, and have fun all while working together as a team to accomplish goals.

JVBC was established in 2000 as a feeder program to the Johnston Community Schools.  Since that time, JVBC has strived to become a competitive club in the state.  All teams are formed using competitive tryouts each fall. JVBC attempts to field two teams at each age group.  If there is coach availability, a National team and a Regional team will be formed.  Tryouts are open and you do not need to be part of the Johnston Community Schools.

Team Levels:  National and Regional
National level teams compete in at least one National Qualifier tournament, where they compete against teams from across the country.  The remainder of their tournaments are within Iowa or surrounding states.  Regional teams typically compete in tournaments within Iowa.  Both teams also may play in the Regional tournament at the end of the USA season. All tournaments are typically one or two days and are held on either Saturdays or Sundays.  National Qualifiers are three days of play.

            Regional 12U: $300 (metro league only)

Club Tournament:
Each year JVBC hosts a tournament called Spiketacular.  This tournament is a fundraiser for JVBC as well as an opportunity for the teams to play “at home”.  We will have two 2018 dates, in January and March.
Each year JVBC players are asked to participate in a fundraising event to help keep the club costs to a minimum.
