SC Midlands History

SC Midlands Volleyball Club formed when the directors of South Carolina Juniors (established in 2002), and Midlands Volleyball (established in 2009) united their clubs.  The leadership consisted of longtime directors of South Carolina Juniors, Cynthia and Glen Dimapan, as well as former USC Head Volleyball Coach Ben Somera, and former USC and Oregon State University Head Coach Nancy Somera.  The team joined forces to provide a club experience that would surround players with the values that have brought them success as players and coaches.  

SC Midlands Success

Since our humble beginnings, 130 plus college recruited athletes have trained in our programs, 6,000 plus other players have improved their skills/confidence, their school teams, and the level of play both in Columbia, and surrounding areas. SC Midlands is one of the main reasons that volleyball in the area has exploded.  As we train our athletes, they in turn raise the level of play in both the middle school, and high school arenas.  We are proud to say that many of our players go on to become impact players at the middle/high school levels, play in college, and/or coach at every level from elementary kids to Division I.

Our Training Philosophy and Commitment

SC Midlands is committed to building training continuity from its youngest players to its elite athletes seeking to play top levels in high school and/or collegiate ball.  Training includes fundamentals in movement and skill execution, as well as an emphasis on teamwork and communication.
