MOCO Volleyball 2023 Fall Training Program

MOCO’s Fall Training Program provides volleyball players of all skill levels the opportunity to improve their skills and play competitive volleyball.  The program runs from September 6, 2023 - October 29, 2023. 


Our Fall Training Program is unique---it is not a recreational league or a clinic.  What makes our Fall Training Program special:

  • Experienced Coaches for Each Team: Teams are coached by our club volleyball coaches.  Our coach-to-player ratio gives players more direct, personalized instruction than a recreational league.
  • Accelerated Skill Development:  Our coaches structure practices to work on specific skill development needs.  Players receive 3+ hours of skill development coaching each week, plus their competition time.
  • Great Competition:  Our Sunday sessions combine skill development led by our most experienced coaches--with more than 75 years of combined coaching experience--with scrimmages and game-like drills. Our games are fast-paced and scored, aligning with our belief that a training program should be challenging while giving players lots of chances to succeed.
  • Low Cost: Our training program provides players with a club-level volleyball experience at a very low cost -- less than $10 per hour of instruction.
  • Teams Organized by Age and Experience: Players of different ages develop volleyball skills at different speeds.  We organize our teams so players of similar ages and experience levels are together.
  • Preparation for Club Volleyball: If your player is interested in playing club volleyball, our training program gets them ready for tryouts.  A large number of our club players got started in our fall programs.


This is our most popular volleyball program, and it WILL fill up.  Last year, several hundred players participated, with over a hundred additional players on our waitlist.

Experience Levels

  • Beginners: For players new to volleyball and players with limited volleyball experience
  • Intermediate: For players with volleyball experience who have attended multiple clinics, played in recreational leagues, or have played for their school team.
  • Advanced: For players with club volleyball experience


Everyone who registers and pays is guaranteed a spot on a team. Once teams are formed, each team will have two sessions a week:

  • Practice: Once a week on either Wednesday or Thursday.
  • Skills Development & Competition: On Sunday, teams will work together on skills development and compete against each other, playing 2-3 matches against teams at or adjacent to their skill level.  Sessions will last 2 hours.
  • Halloween Candy Scrimmage: On October 29th, teams will participate in a MOCO tradition -- the Candy Scrimmage.  We fill up ball carts with treats, and our MOCO coaches, staff, and club players help us celebrate great plays, great effort, and great attitudes with great rewards!

Potential Schedule Conflicts

Important: Times and location may change based on program registration.  Please notify us of your preferred practice day during the registration process.  We will try to accommodate schedule requests when possible, but there is no guarantee we'll be able to do so. 


No refunds will be given for clinics missed by participants due to their inability to attend a registered session.  If a conflict arises, players can request to attend a different date, subject to approval by the MOCO staff.

In the event of changes in facility availability, participants will be notified of the new dates and times.  Refunds will be provided to those participants unable to attend the rescheduled sessions.


$325 for the entire session (Discounted price $250 -- see below!)


$50 discount if you volunteer as an assistant coach!

$25 discount if you register before midnight on June 30th!


If registration is full, please select "waitlist" and this will add you to our list. If a space opens up, we will notify you.


A valid Chesapeake Region (CHRVA) Volleyball membership is required to participate in our programs.

We will email you with CHRVA registration instructions at the beginning of September.  The cost of the membership depends on your age, but ranges between $20-$55.  The membership cost is paid to CHRVA, not to MOCO and covers the player for the entire year.
