The Maryland District AAU proudly welcomes the WE BUILD - YOU PLAY Sports Group to our AAU family!
WE BUILD - YOU PLAY was founded in 2008, created out of a desire to offer a grass-roots sports program which would provide kids on the East Coast a chance to compete at the highest levels of competitive play. With our experience in establishing five thriving youth sports clubs and numerous successful sporting events, WE BUILD - YOU PLAY knows what it takes to build a structure that will allow you to play.
The direction and goals relating to the Volleyball program in general are to continue to provide kids with the opportunity to compete at the highest levels of competitive play as well as branch out. The newest locations are in Savannah and Cincinnati.
Richard Comly is a Pennsylvania born businessman who strongly believes in the family values and helping people to expand their opportunities and reach their full potential. Inspired by his mother, he decided to create We Build You Play and DVA volleyball academy for high school students and branched out through the whole East Coast, so more kids have access to the opportunity to fulfill their dreams.

Currently, Kelsey Stave is the project manager for WBYP sports Group where she plants the events and acts as tournament directors during the event.
