Our rigorous, highly competitive system prepares our teams for success at the all level. We pride ourselves in creating a unique atmosphere that fosters a true sense of family within a highly competitive environment. The ideals of hard work and family are the bedrock of the Big Sky Volleyball Club and will be what separates us from the rest.

Purpose

Big Sky Volleyball Club (BSVC) is based in Bozeman, Montana.  We began as Montana Juniors in the early 90s and we have also operated as Mountain One Volleyball Club.  We changed our name and our look in 2009 to commemorate the growth we’ve seen in our membership and to increase name recognition when traveling outside of our region.

We provide multiple opportunities that vary in time and financial commitment as well as intensity for female athletes ages 9-18.  We are dedicated to advancing the personal and athletic development of youth through pursuit of excellence in volleyball, fostering a sense of community and culture throughout the club and promoting leadership in all club participants.

BSVC strives to provide an experienced qualified coaching staff that guides athletes in developing volleyball skills, system knowledge and team dynamics.  We emphasize playing in a positive, nurturing environment, teaching the concepts of team, sportsmanship and having fun.  We help many of our athletes in reaching their goal of playing at the middle school, high school and collegiate levels. We recognize that all the coaches, athletes, parents and participants benefit from being committed to a progressive club that has a continuity of purpose and that pursues excellence.

We love volleyball and genuinely want all our athletes to have a great experience.  Our success is not measured in wins and losses but by the growth, development and enjoyment of our athletes.  We strive for all participants to learn the game and love the experience.  Your Board of Directors and Club Director pledge to do whatever it takes to create and support such a program.
