What is ABQ Volleyball
ABQVolleyball is a developmental girls volleyball club from the Albuquerque metro area.
Established in 2006 by Joe and Melissa Gutierrez, we began as a single parochial school team
that wanted to play more and get better. Since then we have expanded to include several
parochial, private and public school players.
ABQ volleyball teaches volleyball skills to girls from 4th-8th grade. Our goal is to develop
social skills, self-esteem, confidence and teamwork while developing coordination, agility,
athleticism and competition. We also aim to develop positive attitudes and guide how players
deal with success as well as failure. Playing volleyball can promote active and fit lifestyles
that our kids can use all their lives.
Who Can Play
4th-8th grade girls can play. Currently we have players from Queen of Heaven, St Mary’s
of Albuquerque, Fatima, Annunciation, St Therese, Holy Ghost, Assumption, St Thomas
Aquinas, St Charles, Sandia Prep, Hope, Albuquerque Academy, and San Felipe along with a few APS
and charter schools.
Girls may participate in club volleyball even if they play other sports during the club
Practices and Tournaments
Practices typically run 1.5-2 hours twice a week. Specific practice days/times/locations for
your team will be determined each month and may vary. Practices are held at the following
locations: St Pius X High School, St. Therese and Annunciation.

In addition, players will be asked to accept a position on a team shortly after
the tryout date. If you accept a position on a team and your family decides to
leave the club for any reason, payments made up to that point are non-refundable.
No club release waivers can be granted if your account is not in good standing.
The startup date for 2015-2016 season is November 21st. We will have a required parent meeting at the
beginning of tryouts. After that, players will be evaluated for about 1.5 hours. Parents are welcome to
stay and observe or may return to pick up their daughter at the end.

Players are evaluated by age, skill level and experience. The goal is to form
teams that will help players develop, improve and be challenged appropriately.
At the 7th/8th grade level, players are competing for spots on each team. 8th
grade girls must have at least one season of playing experience.
Your family will be asked to accept the player’s spot on a team and commit
to that team regardless of which other players are on that team or which
coach/assistant is assigned to that team. If there are transportation issues
for parents, this must be discussed at tryouts. We encourage parents to accept
the team they are assigned to and network with other parents for rides. We have
traditionally had great families who help each other with rides to practice and
We regret that we cannot add players after the
Tryout date due to the large increase in the number of players and the
limitations of practice space and coaching staff. If you cannot attend the
tryout date, please contact the club directors.
