Junior Crusaders Girls Volleyball

About Junior Crusaders Girls Volleyball

Join the ranks of the Championship volleyball program at Catholic Memorial High School. Develop the skills needed by participating in the competitive Junior Crusaders volleyball program to elevate to the elite high school level.

The Junior Crusader program prepares volleyball players to compete within a Christian environment. Special emphasis is placed on having a “team” attitude, respect, and good sportsmanship. 

Junior Crusader volleyball is a developmental program dedicated to fostering knowledge and appreciation of the game that will carry over to the high school years and beyond. Participants will learn the fundamentals of the sport from a cadre of coaches who bring a wealth of playing and coaching experience from the high school and college levels.

Emphasis will be placed on instruction, participation, and development. At this level, while winning is important, CMH believes learning the game and player development is more important.
