Welcome to the NM Cactus Volleyball Club 2022-2023 club season. This is our fifteenth official season as a juniors program of USA Volleyball and we are excited about the upcoming year. NM Cactus VBC is a non-profit organization that was started in 2007 to help develop and promote the competitive sport of volleyball for athletes ages 8-18. The goal of the program is to teach young female athletes discipline and good sportsmanship, while enhancing their self esteem in a safe and fun environment. If your personal goal is to make your middle school or high school team, we can teach you the skills you need. If your goal is to play at the Collegiate level, we have helped 22 athletes in the past 14 years achieve their dream of playing at the college level. The success of our club revolves around athletes that have high expectations, and a strong work ethic along with our highly trained and committed coaching staff.
Based in Albuquerque, we serve the local area and surrounding cities. We have had athletes that have played with our club from Rio Rancho, Santa Fe, Belen, Los Lunas, Bernalillo, Los Alamos and Estancia. We also have athletes that represent the Pueblos of Sandia and Isleta.
NM Cactus supports and attends the University of New Mexico Lobo volleyball games and we encourage our athletes to show support as they strive to play at the higher levels of the game.
