As one of the co-founders of Monument Volleyball, we saw a need and wanted to provide the athletes a positive memorable experience playing outdoor and indoor volleyball. We strive to provide a safe, learning, and fun environment for the athletes. We wanted to keep our focus on education and family where we can encourage leadership, commitment - to family, school, team.  Our older athletes mentor the younger ones.  There is goal setting and an action plan to reach those goals!

Coach Marco
Marco Vallejo: Coach Marco is very happy to join the Monument Volleyball family this season.  This is his first year coaching at the club level.  Previously, he coached at the middle-school level at Fort Hunt, where his teams were the champions 3 out of 4 seasons.
He has been playing volleyball for over 35 years. He is originally from São Paulo, Brazil where he played on a competitive club team starting at age 13.  He moved to the US when he was 18 and continued playing indoor sixes for many years, as well as grass and sand doubles tournaments.  He is an all-around player (can play all positions), and has played all kinds of volleyball over the years, but what he loves most is grass doubles.  In his younger years he was frequently a top finisher in the open level of local doubles tournaments in this area.  He is excited to pass on his passion for volleyball to the next generation, including his own two kids!
Marco is IMPACT and SafeSport certified.

Please note the schedule is a 'work-in-progress' as the local CHRVA tournaments are not finalized and have not been posted. They are tentative and more will be added to our schedule throughout the season with about two tournaments a month.
