As of the 2018-2019 season, Desert STARS Volleyball Club will merge into RUSH Volleyball Club. Desert STARS Volleyball Club is a private club that serviced Maricopa, Yuma, Wellton, Flagstaff and Kingman along with Vail and the East Valley.
They started with 2 team in 2010 season (Maricopa and Tempe), then grew to 6 teams by 2011(Yuma). 2013 they carried 8 teams(Ahwatukee), and blew up in 2014 with 12 teams (Wellton, East Valley). Flagstaff And Kingman join us in 2015, while a club formed up in Maricopa. 2016 we went back down to 4 teams(Yuma started a club), but our Kingman 16 Club took home the Gold for the region. 2017 a few Yuma coaches requested our help and Kingman grew as well as helping out 3 teams in Tucson with a total of 8 teams. 2018 Tucson teams dropped but 2 new teams from Vail emerged to a 14’s Club Gold. Kingman grew to 4 teams and they also started a RISING STARS program that they formed 4 teams from the ages from 7-12yrs old and 18’s and 16’s players helped in the coaching side of this program, and we continue to help facilitate this program to get the sport bigger in all of our locations.
