Practice Schedule Changes
Vanguard Volleyball Club has received significant practice schedule changes from the facility managers. This affects all Vanguard Silver and Gold teams for the rest of the season. The changes are now posted on the Schedule located on the right hand side of the main page of the website. These changes are effective immediately, please review and make note in order to accommodate these new dates and times.

Vanguard has been transitioning away from the old email method of communication and utilizing our new website to increase communication with our players and families. The website is our main form of communication. While we have experienced a few “bumps” along the way, we appreciate your positive feedback and patience as we learn and grow with this new system.
We hope to continue to fine tune and increase features in the future. Being able to access practice schedules, tournament schedules, hotel links and rosters in a one -stop format, is a huge improvement instead of looking through old multiple emails!

2019 BJNC Dallas
Our 15-18 Gold teams and their families need to book your room through the provided link on your sons teams page. Due to the “wave” format and our position in this years housing lottery, our teams are on different start dates and in different hotels. Please book promptly!
