Girls Volleyball Programs
The Bristol Boys and Girls Club CRUSH Volleyball Club (sometimes shortened to Bristol CRUSH Volleyball Club) was created in 2009 to allow Bristol, Connecticut area girls an affordable way to participate in club volleyball. We are run through the Bristol Boys and Girls Club in Bristol, and participate in contests through USA Volleyball, specifically within the New England Regional Volleyball Association in their NERVA Juniors program.

A fourth Select (HP) tournament is an option for teams that choose to play in an additional tournament at an added cost.
Each summer, to help teams keep in shape and prepare for the upcoming Fall season, we run a summer girls volleyball league, open to any girls volleyball teams who want to participate. Signups are as a team (as opposed to individual, like our club programs) and registration opens in the spring. Games are scheduled on Monday and Tuesday nights and the schedule depends on the number of teams that register, but usually one night is Varsity-level play and the other night is Junior Varsity/Freshmen-level play. The league runs from the end of June until the end of August.
Middle School Programs
There is also a summer middle school developmental program, that opens for individual registration in the spring, and runs during the same time frame that the summer league does (end of June until the end of August, ending one week prior to when the summer league ends).
