3Step Sports, a youth sports club and event operator, has acquired North Pacific Juniors Volleyball Club, a volleyball organization based in Oregon.

NPJ offers year-round volleyball programs for girls and boys of all ages. NPJ was founded by Adam Ellis with two teams in Albany and Lebanon before expanding to Salem, Bend, Portland and Seattle. In Salem, the club operates out of the NPJ Sports Complex, which features 38,000 square feet, six courts and chiropractic, massage and nutrition centers.

“Adam Ellis has used his personal experiences to come up with a unique approach to training the whole athlete,” comments David Geaslen. “NPJ cares about their kids more than individual or team success. As we have expanded our volleyball group in a short time, we have looked for the best clubs on and off the court. NPJ is the best in the Pacific Northwest and we’re thrilled to welcome them into our family.”
