About Our Local Program:
Established by Don Landry in 1998, the purpose of the Blue Crab local program is to provide a less expensive club volleyball experience. The format for our local program is simple. We provide a minimum of three hours of skills work two to three nights per week. We will begin with a parent meeting sometime in November. At this early meeting we will talk about the local tournament schedule, pertinent club topics, and answer any question you might have about our local program.
