Princeton Boys Club Volleyball:

Huge thanks for another great Princeton boys club volleyball season. Our boys 14, 16,17, & 18 teams have finished up yet another successful season and had their last big tournament out at the BANE USAV National Boys Qualifier. Three days of awesome competition. We wish you the best of luck with your high tryouts starting at the end of this week. Remember to play hard and be role models for the other players both on and off the court. GOOD LUCK!

Thanks to the coaches for all your time and coaching these awesome young men. Your relentless push to teach the players every practice and prepare them for their HS season is very appreciated. THANKS!
