The 88’x184’ Mateflex court inside Benfield Sportscenter is a shape-shifter. One day, it might be a full-size soccer field ready for child or adult leagues. The next, it could be a baseball, field hockey, or lacrosse field. Or maybe it'll be split into several different volleyball and basketball courts, with one corner cordoned off for competitive I-spy tournaments. Whatever the sport, Benfield's staff can set up the indoor arena to meet the athletes' needs. Away from the arena, Benfield Sportscenter encompasses a 1,400-square-foot training area with exercise equipment, as well as a lobby with WiFi and a snack bar.
In addition to open sessions and leagues, the staff teaches a carefully designed child-development program for ages 3 to 5. The curriculum starts with a multi-sport class, then moves on to a tri-sport class, before finally placing kids in single-sport sessions. This encourages children to find their ideal sport, whether it's basketball, baseball, hockey, tennis, or lacrosse.

The sights and sounds of sets, spikes, and serves fill the XFINITY Center, the competitive home of the University of Maryland Terrapins volleyball team. During each summer's Maryland Volleyball Camps, the Terps of tomorrow learn new skills on its competition-tested court. Read on to learn more about the camps and their instructors.
Skill Levels: Maryland Volleyball Camp's numerous sessions welcome players of all skill levels, from beginners to nationally recognized recruits. In addition to individual skills camps, the university also offers workshops for full high school teams, as well as positional camps designed for high-level hitters, setters, and liberos.
Coaches: Camps are led by national-championship-winning Terps coach Steve Aird, along with fellow college coaches and players from schools in NCAA Divisions I, II, and III.
Facility: The Terps' home since 2002, the XFINITY Center hosts the university's basketball, volleyball, and wrestling teams. In recent years, the volleyball team has toppled preexisting attendance records, including a memorable tilt against Coach Aird's old team (the Penn State Nittany Lions) that saw more than 4,500 spectators in attendance.

NAKID Social Sports mixes friendly competition with hanging out at the bar. Once a week, teams meet up to play games such as corn-hole, kickball, and softball. Then everyone heads to the bar to eat and drink. NAKID Social Sports also hosts three free parties per year, movie screenings, and other events.
United Social Sports brings people together to socialize and showcase their hand-eye coordination through social sport leagues and events. Free agents or team-sized groups register for the organization’s casual coed leagues dedicated to traditional sports such as softball and volleyball as well as carnival games such as cornhole and skee-ball. Each league hosts 6–8 weekly matches, which culminate in a final tournament and an end-of-season party—much like youth-sports leagues, but with postgame drink specials.
