BRYC Boys 14s Place 5th at East Coast Championship (2013-06-04)

If you've watched the 2012 Olympic Summer Games, you've probably appreciated the exciting level of play by the United States Men’s and Women’s Volleyball Teams performance in London. The world’s greatest athletes competing at the highest level of volleyball….but they all must start somewhere.

The Braddock Road Youth Club (BRYC) Boys Volleyball Program is on the rise and I have been privileged to be a part of this program. BRYC is a Northern Virginian-based volleyball program that competes in the greater Washington DC, Maryland and Virginia areas. In 2013, our boys program grew over 100% from the previous year drawing a talent pool serving young boys ages 11-16.

This year, we have a promising group of young boys that have played together for a few years and have earned the respect of East Coast teams and coaches by their aggressive defensive play and amazing ball control at such an early age. Their team accomplishments are nothing short of extraordinary and several boys have earned individual national-level recognition as a part of USA Volleyball High Performance program – a program designed to select talent with the intent to develop, groom, and play at jr. national/national/international levels.

BRYC Boys 14 team earned an esteem spot in the 34th Boys Junior National Championships held in Reno, Nevada from 27 June through 4 July 2013. For the very first time, BRYC will compete in a pool of 36 teams within their age bracket. This venue lends a great opportunity for national exposure and provides the boys a positive experience to play at the highest level of volleyball in the United States. Moreover, this event is where collegiate coaches and National Team representatives scout for future talent, perhaps potential Olympians.

In effort to provide the best experience possible for these young athletes, we kindly ask for any contributions or support, financial or otherwise, that could assist us in reducing cost for equipment, uniforms, airfare, lodging, and meals for our BRYC 14 National Team and their families. Our goal is to raise a total of $4500 and everything we raise will be utilized to support this effort.

Thank you for your support,

Victor Talamoa

Head Coach, BRYC 14 Boys National Team
