It seems the following comment by our Starlings club director from Indianapolis, Michelle Brittain-Watts says it best:

“What a wonderful day, the Director’s Convention 2013! So much excitement and passion for the cause! Stay strong and focused, the reward is greater than the struggle!”

Starlings boys program to launch in San Diego

By · November 15, 2012 · Filed in Club News · No Comments »

After 16 years of building the largest Junior Volleyball Club in the nation, exclusively serving girls, we are now going to include boys in the program. The effort will be partnered with USA Volleyball with the initial tournament to be held in San Diego in December 2012.

The pilot program for the first year will concentrate in Southern California with tournaments being held in San Diego. The plan is to expand to other areas in 2013.

For information, contact program director, Mani Santos, at 619-809-7204 or mani7 (at) cox (dot) net.

Final standings from 2012 Nationals online

In years past, Mobile, Ala. 12s struggled to simply win a match in the Starlings National Tournament.

Something was different this year, though.

It took team more than 30 hours to travel over 1,900 miles to the 15th annual Nationals. Mobile coaches told Byron Shewman they used everything but a boat to make it to San Diego. But once here, Mobile was unstoppable, finishing the weekend as the gold champion in its division.

Along with Mobile, Omaha repeated as the 18s champion, Shonto won the 16s division and Phoenix-Nick took the 14s title.

Congratulations to all of the winners!
