Dunes volleyball club is one of those Indiana volleyball clubs that produces popular summer each year.
In 1989, club director Rick Ashmore wanted to give club volleyball a makeover, so he created the Dunes Volleyball Club.
In 21 years, Dunes VBC has produced an impressive number of alumni who've continued playing college volleyball at higher education institutions.
For 2010, Dunes players have received volleyball scholarships to attend West Point Academy, Bethel College, Saint Francis College, University of Indianapolis, Trine University, St. Francis University, and Indiana State University.
Volleyball Leagues and Tournaments
The 2010 Dunes May Classic has over 60 volleyball teams in all age brackets and will be held on May 15 and 16.
Speaking of volleyball tournaments, Dunes elite volleyball team players garner significant experience playing from January to June in the Lake Michigan Power Volleyball League and traveling to volleyball tournaments all over the country.
Dunes volleyball teams participate in the President's Day Volleyball Tourney in Bloomington, IL, the Indy Juniors Classic and Team Indiana Classic in Indianapolis, Sports Performance in Aurora, Wisconsin Dells Invitational, Best of America in Kalamazoo, Michigan, National Junior Classic in Aurora, the Sports Performance President's Day Tournament in Schaumberg, the Team Indiana Exposure Event, the Sports Performance National Junior Classic, the MVA Showcase in Grand Rapids and of course everyone's at the AAU Nationals in Orlando Florida.
Dunes VBC has grown into a very large junior volleyball program, which this year in the elite team category hosts four 18s, two 17s, three 16s, four 15s, four 14s, three 13s, two 12s and one 11s volleyball teams that have coaches with significant experience playing the game and also coaching on the high school level.
In the Dunes local and regional category the club sponsors five 17s, four 16s, two 15s, thirteen 14s, three 13s, six 12s, one 11s and two 10s volleyball teams.
Dunes offers the local team volleyball option to athletes not yet ready to make a six-month commitment to volleyball and who often play other sports that keep them from six-month volleyball participation.
These volleyball teams "play five play dates and practice once a week and then either practice or play on Sunday."
Dunes hosts high school volleyball team camps in July for high school varsity, junior varsity and freshmen volleyball teams.
The cost per team is very economical and hasn't changed in a couple of years which probably explains why in 2009 over 25 schools with 65 volleyball teams participated.
At Dunes volleyball team camps participants train three sessions-a-day and can expect to participate in a series of volleyball team drills against other teams, controlled scrimmages and organized tournament play.
