DIGS (a/k/a "Do It Garden State" and "Jersey Girls Volleyball Club") is a not-for-profit girls volleyball club dedicated to developing middle and high school female student-athletes in the northern New Jersey and downstate New York region. Our goals include developing exceptional volleyball skills and helping young women to develop into responsible adults, providing the lessons that will help them serve as tomorrow's leaders.
It is with deep sadness that we share that Scotty Mose has passed away.
Scotty was well known in the collegiate, national, and club volleyball worlds. In 1971 he created and developed the largest volleyball camp on the east coast in, World Volleyball Training Center (a/k/a, Scotty's Camp). In 1972 he was the assistant coach of the United States National team. He led the United States National Team for the Deaf to a gold medal in 1985 and silver in 1989. In 1977 in his first year as the head coach at Rutgers University, he led the women's volleyball team to its first-ever victory by beating William Paterson College. Following his time there he coached at Seton Hall. He was recognized by the YMCA Volleyball Hall of Fame. Scotty also helped develop several junior club programs including USA East, LIBA, Bergen VBC, & DIGS.
Jersey Girls Volleyball Club (DIGS) was founded in 1987 by Scotty and he was actively coaching until 2020. For many young girls that have passed through the DIGS program Scotty has been an integral part of their development. If he wasn’t their coach then he most likely taught and/or mentored one of the current coaches in our program. Being coached by him was a right of passage.
Scotty Mose's impact on the volleyball community went beyond coaching. He has been a competitive player, a mentor, and an inspiration to many young athletes and his love and passion for the game were infectious.
Scotty was a father, veteran, coach, friend, and a mentor to so many. He touched so many of our lives for the better and we want to thank him for starting this club. He created a place where young athletes will be able to learn and love the game of volleyball for many generations to come.
Scotty, we want to thank you for your generous time and constant effort all 73 years of coaching volleyball . You were a fantastic example and an even better teacher!
We Love You!
DIGS 16 Red traveled up to Providence, RI to compete in the Wicked Good Tournament (12/17-18). They finished off day 1 without dropping a set. Day 2, they continued their momentum from day 1, in the quarterfinals & semifinals against GEVA Team LI Fury in straight sets to get to the finals. This setup the finals of 2 teams who didn't drop a set all tournament long. 16Red completed the entire match, but just came up short in the finals to a 2nd place overall finish.
Congratulations on a great tournament to start the season.
