Midwest Junior Volleyball was founded in 1983 as a member of AAU. In 1994, Midwest Junior Volleyball switched affiliation to USA Volleyball.
Midwest Junior Volleyball previously served as the first host of the AAU National Volleyball Championships held at Benedictine University from 1976-199. After 1994, the AAU event was turned into the USA Volleyball Asics Junior National Championships hosted by College of DuPage from 1995-2001.
Beginning in 2002, the Asics Junior National Championships, due to explosive growth, moved to McCormick Place, Chicago. It was first sports event in Volleyball to be hosted at McCormick Place.
In 2009, the Asics Championships moved to its permanent home at Navy Pier in Chicago. In addition to the Asics Junior National Championships, Midwest Junior Volleyball hosted successfully the Mayor Daley Holiday Sports Festival from 2001-2010 at Christmas time.
Over the years, Midwest Junior Volleyball has helped administer four USA Volleyball Clubs: Straight Down, Midwest JR VBC, Cyclones VBC, and Rally Force VBC.
Our mission is to provide opportunities to help students earn tuition dollars and to play travel volleyball by engaging them in event management of tournaments.
Midwest Junior Volleyball also administers 40-45 tournaments a year, providing opportunities for members to assist in hosting these events to raise funds for their schools and organizations. Over the years, athletes have raised funds for College of DuPage, Elmhurst College, Velocity All Sports, Olivet Nazarene University, St. Francis University and St. Luke’s Ministry.
