New Mexico Volleyball Club will no longer serve the Albuquerque area. It has been a blessing and honor to serve all players and families that have come through this program over the course of the last five years. We hope that the mission to inspire and develop youth athletes toward leadership and stewardship was accomplished. Thank you to all of the coaches, parents, families, players, and community members who were wonderfully committed to New Mexico Blaze Volleyball Club. You are loved.

We are a small and savvy club in the Sun Country Region and located in Albuquerque. Our student-athletes and families appreciate the friendly atmosphere while engaging in regional and national competition within the USA Volleyball Club system.
Our goal is to promote leadership, academic success, positive team dynamics, strong work ethic, competitive spirit, ownership, balance and the experience of pure joy through the sport of volleyball. We focus on maintaining a balanced schedule for student-athletes with (mostly) one tournament per month. Our practices are scheduled for two to three sessions per week. We begin our season mid-November and typically end the season in mid-April. It is in maintaining this simplicity that we hope to foster balance, wellness, and long-lasting enjoyment within the sport.
“We want our student-athletes to gain momentum from a place of INSPIRATION rather than MOTIVATION. Motivation takes will power and can feel forced, whereas inspiration comes from feeling a sense of creativity, excitement, empowerment and ultimately feels effortless.” – Maria Stutsman y Marquez, Club Director
The club has a strong history of success through the nurturing of leaders (Coaches, Directors, and Parents) who devoted many, many, many hours to student-athletes who have participated in this club. As we move into the 2015-2016 club season, our hope is to continue the wonderful legacy already forged.
