High Desert Starlings

High Desert Starlings

High Desert Starlings serves youth in the Victor Valley area. We are a non-profit with the goal of providing youth in this area the opportunity to participate in club sports. Competition is good, but we focus on the fundamentals of the game and teamwork as well.
 
An individual does not make a team, but individuals that come together as one can accomplish great things and build skills and relationships that will help them in the future.


Mission

The Starlings believe in supporting the participation of girls in volleyball because:

  • Girls who participate in sports are 92% less likely to get involved with drugs.
  • Girls who participate in sports have a higher level of self esteem.
  • Girls who participate in sports are three times more likely to graduate from high school.
  • Girls who participate in sports are 80% less likely to have an unwanted pregnancy.

The sport of volleyball is ideal for the inner cities and rural areas of America — inexpensive, non-contact and inherently a social game requiring communication and cooperation. Girls playing volleyball in the United States outnumber boys, 12-1. It is truly the “girl’s game” of America.
 
Starlings Volleyball Clubs excludes no girl due to financial hardship. While junior club volleyball dues around the nation are often exclusionary, Starlings club dues are dramatically minimized and some girls are provided work opportunities in exchange for monthly dues. Additionally, all Starlings clubs are required to raise part of their budget through fundraising.
Each individual Starlings club is encouraged to adopt a mentoring program to nurture personal growth and educational achievement.
