Our Beginnings

The Essex Volleyball Club (formerly known as the South Orange Maples) is one of the oldest junior volleyball clubs in New Jersey, celebrating over 30 years of success. Our club was established to provide athletes with an opportunity to train year-round in volleyball. We are a teaching club with our goal of making our players more fundamentally sound.
