Miami Starlings

Florida City Parks and Starlings Miami OPEN GYM Sunday was a success!! And we're still rolling ahead!

We hosted the 1st  "Open Gym" volleyball event on  March 11th , at  Florida City's Youth Activity Center.  Coach Fred and his Brevard Starlings crew made the long trek south and it was a fun, fun day! We are so lucky to have them and appreciate their service and commitment to the sport and the community. Did I mention they had spent the entire previous day volunteering at the Florida Special Olympics!! Incredible.

 We have had 2 more Open gyms since March 11, and the plan is to continue to host these Open Gyms on Sunday mornings, from 10 am until 1-1:30 pm.,through April, and resume again the 1st Sunday in June. (I will be out of the country the entire month of May).

  All girls ages 10 to 18 are invited. The Youth Activity Center address is: 650 NW  5th avenue, Florida City. Additional details are being worked out, and I will be updating this page as things evolve. If all goes well, we hope to form a team or 3, and to compete in USAV and AAU events by next season (starting in October or November).

Meanwhile, tell your friends, family (and anyone who will listen), that they are welcome to a join us for a great day of camaraderie,  volleyball, friendship and fun.

Feel free to email me or call: 786-417-3156  (leave a message-I will call you back.)

Stay tuned! Stay positive! Stay strong!

Where it all started for Miami. July 2016!!

The picture below is our core group and few extra well wishers, including Coaches for our "sister club" -Brevard Starlings. I made that trip to Cocoa to meet Coach Howell, in hopes he would share his insight and offer me a bit of guidance. I left there 2 days later with a new friend for life, and a true sense of purpose.  Thanks Coach Fred !!
