UNION, NJ - The key to having a perennial state power in any sport is the importance that players compete on a year round level.  Sometimes, there are students who play a high school sport, yet will find time on a Saturday or Sunday to work on a sport they play in another season.  

The Southern Ocean Volleyball Club plays an important part in the success of high school volleyball at Southern Regional High School and in other sections of Southern Ocean County.  Some of these club players attend other high schools in Southern Ocean County and they are contributing to stronger play in these other high school programs. .
