The 2020 Matchbox summer experience will be AWESOME, but different than previous summers. We are currently ONLY offering small group and 1-on-1 programs. Matchbox will NOT host any camps, leagues, or train & plays in June or July.

The safety of all our athletes is our number one priority. In order to ensure the well-being of our athletes and staff amid the COVID-19 pandemic, we have implemented new safety protocols at the facility that are in compliance with local, state, and federal guidelines. To view how these protocols affect our athlete's experience please click here: www.matchboxrec.com/athleteguidelines.

Matchbox Sport Recreation Center

Matchbox Sport Recreation Center is a private athletic facility specializing in volleyball training & events. The facility is home to Matchbox Volleyball Club, one of the largest volleyball clubs in South Dakota, as well as camps, clinics, private lessons, and tournaments for a variety of indoor athletic programs.

WHY THE NAME MATCHBOX? Because the facility is a “box” where “matches” are played. Don’t overthink it.

P.S. No, it’s not a franchise. Locally owned & operated. Think of it like a mom & pop restaurant, but instead of serving hot beef combos, we serve volleyballs.

WHAT IS MATCHBOX VOLLEYBALL CLUB? Club volleyball is a volleyball season (separate from the high school season) that nationally runs January through June. Teams are comprised of athletes from all schools within 150 mile radius of Aberdeen, and these teams compete in tournaments around the Aberdeen area and throughout the midwest; and our national teams even compete throughout the country! Our club teams are coached by area high school coaches and collegiate athletes, and we place great emphasis on providing our athletes with a positive and beneficial athletic EXPERIENCE. In addition to the experience that players gain, they also get sweet gear- our club is sponsored by Adidas, so there is no shortage of swag in our gym.

Matchbox Volleyball Club started in 2018 with 18 girls teams and grew to 25 girls teams (230 athletes) for the 2019 season. We host athletes starting at age 8 in our Matchbox ClubLite (10s) program through age 18 (18s division), with the most popular program being our Spring 16s division which starts in March. Matchbox Volleyball Club offers different team options (Practice, Local, Regional, National) all with different financial, time, and travel requirements, in the hopes we can serve all athletes who love to play volleyball.

And not to forget, we will host our first BOYS season of club volleyball the Fall of 2019. Yes, BOYS. Google it. It’s awesome.

Want to join the club? Visit www.matchboxrec.com/clubvb for more info. Tryouts are held in November. Tryout registration opens in September.

WHAT ABOUT LITTLE KIDS OR ADULTS? Yes, we love you too! We host several youth clinics and camps throughout the year. And for adults, we will host a full schedule of tournaments (6s, 4s, doubles, ladder, coed, mens, womens, etc) starting Fall 2019. This place is home to ALL volleyball lovers!

WHO RUNS THIS PLACE ANYWAYS? Hey Peeps! I’m Alexz! Matchbox is my brain-child. I created Matchbox as a way to serve my community with the gifts and abilities that God gave me. I have spent the greater part of my life playing and coaching volleyball and I can’t think of a greater vehicle to impact lives than through this sport. I have a master’s degree in coaching & sport performance from Northern State University and I have been coaching at the high school and club level for the last 12 years. As a coach and a player combined I have been a part of four high school state championships and two runners-up championships and taken two club teams to the national club tournament in Orlando Florida most recently finishing in the top 25% of teams in the nation.

Outside of the gym, I have degrees in Professional Accountancy and Business Management from Dakota State University (Go Trojans!). I like to say I was an accountant in a “former life”, but I still find myself emerged in financial statements and tax returns at Matchbox. I have led a unique professional life of business, technology, and athletics, which has so perfectly prepared me to develop our Matchbox programs. I have the BEST job in the world, hands down.

But, there is no way Matchbox is run by just one person. I have over TWENTY talented, dedicated, kind-hearted coaches in our Matchbox program who all believe in the development of athletes in our community. All these coaches bring unique experiences and talents to our program which is a huge benefit to our athletes. I strive to create positive athletic experiences for all the athletes that enter our gym, and a diverse staff is key to providing such an experience in small-town South Dakota.

If you or someone you know wants to be a part of the Matchbox Family as a player, coach, sponsor or volunteer please email me at [email protected]. We would love to get to know you and all you have to offer this wonderful community we call home!
