Chicago Bounce Volleyball Club offers three great ways to play volleyball:

National teams, will play in top level tournaments.  These will include Palos Points Series, Winter Boys Championships at McCormick Place, The Gateway Boys Festival in St. Louis and Nationals.  The National teams will also have the option to attend The California Classic as well as other tournaments throughout the season.

Regional teams, will play in skill and age appropriate weekend tournaments, including at least one Palos Points Series and Winter Boys Championships at McCormick Place. We will offer Regional level teams the opportunity to play through the summer, with the decision and payments on Nationals to be made before the end of the season. Players from Regional teams do have the opportunity to join a team for the summer if interested.


Developmental teams, for those athletes wanting to learn the game and compete less we will have opportunities to practice with a group of age and skill appropriate teams with less travel.




We are excited to announce we have teamed up with Club Momentum, one of the fastest growing programs in the Northshore. In addition to adding several Club Momentum coaches to our roster, we are welcoming Matt Switzer, Club Momentum’s executive director, as a master coach. Matt has experience both playing and coaching at the collegiate level and will bring yet another “volleyball-obsessed” brain to our already stellar coaching roster.




Again, I hope you will pass this information along to your athletes. If anyone has any questions about the season, don’t hesitate to send them my way.


Matt can be reached at 312-504-4697 or matt@clubmomentum.com.
