Open Board of Directors Positions; Volunteers Needed

Every season we lose a few board members whose daughters have graduated, stopped playing or perhaps moved to another club. We are looking for several board spots to be filled by those interested in volunteering their time and energy. If you are interested in getting involved, please contact Suzanne Przybyla as soon as possible.

Co-Comptroller: This position is critical to the club’s success in getting into tournaments selected by our coaches and parent reps. Don’t have to be an accountant, but someone who is detail oriented and who perhaps works from home or isn’t currently working. This is a voting member of the board.

Club Secretary: Attends monthly board meetings, takes and distributes the minutes of our meetings. Handles the logistics of securing rooms to meet in on a monthly basis. This is a voting member of the board.

PR/Communications: This position handles updating the website (WordPress) and social media assets of the club and working with media outlets such as the Baltimore Sun and Howard County Times on announcing tournament victories and club announcements. You will be trained how to take care of the website. This is a voting member of the board.

Court Coordinator: This person helps keep our online court system up to date with cancellations and reservations.

Fundraising: This person manages the 1-2 fundraising events that we have each season in order to raise funds for the club.

CVC Red Hornets Development Program


We started our program on November 24th but we still have about 5 more spots open!

The Columbia Volleyball Club has established a development program tailored to younger players looking to enhance their skills in order to eventually play club volleyball once they reach an appropriate age. THIS PROGRAM IS NOT FOR BEGINNER PLAYERS. We like for our players in this program to have basic skills mastered (passing, setting & serving) and at least 1-2 years of recreation volleyball experience.

The Red Hornets development program is coached by CVC coaches and is a fun learning environment where young athletes can learn more about this great sport, make friends and work on volleyball skills. This is not a club travel team; there will be no tournament play… although there will be plenty of scrimmaging, games and fun contests once the girls get more comfortable.

The Red Hornets Program will meet once a week (Mondays) starting November 24th and going through May 18th.

Dates / Times / Location:
This program runs at the Roger Carter  Center in Ellicott City
All practices will run from 6:00pm to 8:00pm
Roger Carter Center: 3000 Milltowne Drive (formerly Mt. Ida Drive), Ellicott City, MD 21043

Cost: $350

Age Group:
9 – 11 years-old, using September 1, 2014 as the determining date*

Mike Bossom Returns as Head Coach for the Columbia Volleyball Club


July 1, 2014 – Columbia, MD – The Columbia Volleyball Club is pleased to announce that Mike Bossom has joined the 30 year-old volleyball organization as Head Coach for the 2014-15 season. Bossom is returning to CVC after leaving the head coaching position at Goucher College where he led the Division III women’s volleyball program from 2006 through 2014. During his tenure, the Gophers accomplished winning records in three of Bossom’s first five seasons, which helped him become the second-winningest coach in the history of Goucher’s volleyball program.

Bossom is no stranger to CVC, as he coached previously with the club, including his tenure as Co-Head Coach with the legendary Greg “Gio” Giovanazzi. “We are really excited to have Mike back; he is really going to help us take this club to the next level as we get ready to celebrate our 30th year.” said CVC President, Dave Kelley. “Mike’s coaching experience at the high school, club and college level is going to be huge for CVC. I know that our players, parents and coaches are thrilled to have him back.” added Kelley.

Bossom, one of the most successful high school volleyball coaches in Maryland, will also be returning as head varsity coach for Centennial High School where he guided the Eagles to 214 wins and eight state championships during his 12 seasons there, including five consecutive state titles starting in 1996.

Bossom was recognized twice during his run at Centennial as All-Met Coach of the Year by both The (Baltimore)Sun and Washington Post, and more than two dozen of the players he coached there went on to play the sport at the collegiate level. Earlier this year, Bossom was named to the Howard County Women’s Athletics Hall of Fame.

In addition to his local successes, Bossom spent more than two years as the head coach of the U.S. Men’s Standing Disabled Team, which under his direction placed fourth at the 2000 Paralympics in Sydney, Australia.
