Successful Hagerstown Volleyball players participate in off-season Club Ball, and summer Fitness Lab, Leadership Academy, Open Gyms, and Team Camp. Current High School players alongside coaches help mold the future of Hagerstown Volleyball by working with our Elementary & Junior High Players during intramurals, clinics, and club seasons. All of our student-athletes are encouraged to play multiple sports throughout the school year.

Current Girls Teams:

  • High School Varsity
  • High School Junior Varsity
  • 8th Grade

We also offer programs for our younger girls:

Clinics for Grades K-4
Typically a Spring fundraiser program that lasts for approx 3 days and is a fun, skills-focused program where our High School and Junior High players help teach our younger players the basics of volleyball. The cost for this program in 2023 was $30.

5th & 6th Grade Intramurals
This is a School program typically offered in the Fall that lasts for approx 5 weeks, practicing for 2 days a week and playing matches 1 day a week. Coaches & High School players help coach these teams. HS players also learn the basics of officiating. The cost of this program is the purchase of a Team t-shirt.

Nettle Creek Volleyball Club (Grades 5-8)
This is a Club program outside of the school, but is a feeder program for our school teams. Our season usually begins with try-outs in November, and practices & tournaments in January, February, and March. The NCVBC is directed by Betsy Swimm. The cost for the 2023 season was $300.
