We had many great years behind us, and here are
a few highlights for those considering us for 2016!
- SC Midlands' allegiance and support of USA Volleyball is prominent! We are PROUDLY returning to USA Volleyball and the Palmetto Region in 2016! SC Midlands chooses to support the Palmetto region because it is operated by USA Volleyball, the official governing body of volleyball in the United States. As a non-profit organization, USA Volleyball in each Region helps to support the US Olympic Teams. Click here to read about why YOU and SC Midlands should support USA Volleyball, the USA Regions, and the Palmetto Region State Championship. We are proud of standing by our Region of the United States, and for vowing to make our Region Stronger and Stronger each year! Join us and contribute to making United States Volleyball #1 in the World!
- SC Midlands teams are all automatically invited into the officially sanctioned Palmetto Region USA State Championships! This makes it a win-win, as it is a favorite tournament for many every year! Our invitation means the privilege and opportunity to compete in one championship featuring 30 plus clubs in the state. SC Midlands teams are afforded this invitation because of our affiliation with our United States Region.
- Let's shoot for Indianapolis! In 2016, SC Midlands National Elite and Performance Elite teams will compete for bids to attend Nationals in Indiana! We want you to be a part of this! Almost every division in USA Nationals is a qualifying ONLY event! SC Midlands is a club that offers National Elite teams the chance to attend BOTH the USA Junior National Championship (MUST qualify) and/or AAU Nationals if we don't qualify! Come out for SC Midlands for a chance to be on a winning team that drives to Indiana!

Our girls had the opportunity to see Russ Rose, Hugh McCutcheon, David Shoji, and other volleyball coaching legends. Join us and help us get to New Orleans! We had to work hard to get there. We had to budget really smart, but in the end, we made it! Five SC Midlands in the past two years have made it to the USA Junior National Championship in Minneapolis! Now we have AWESOME memories for life!
- We boast ONE OF A KIND coaches with a variety of District Championships, Championships, State Championships, and Coach of the Year Awards. Additionally, we work hard at our VERY unique coaching styles as we develop programs that make sense for our volleyball community! We have trained 1,000's of elementary, middle, and high school athletes, many of them now playing college ball, and/or even coaching in a variety of settings including
- in DI schools.
