St. Louis Powerhitters

Established 2005




Welcome to the St. Louis Powerhitters Volleyball Club website, a proud member of the Premier Invitational League! We trust  that it will prove informative and useful. Materials are continuously updated as we celebrate our successes of this past year, and plan for the upcoming 2015-16 season. This is our 11th season as a Club, making us one of the oldest and most established within the Gateway Region.

News of a general Club nature may be found at the Club News & Events link. Team-specific information, such as rosters, and player photographs and profiles, may be found on that Team's home page. All major events and deadlines are placed on the Calendar link, and the website is updated daily.

We are proud of the fact that the Club qualified a team for the USA Volleyball Junior National Championships in Dallas for the 2007-08  season in but our second year of sponsoring a Girl's program. Based on that early success, we continue to be one of the premier junior girl's programs in the Gateway Region. Below are some pictures and videos from the 2015 USAV National Championships in New Orleans, where we sent five teams (13's, 14's, 15's, 16's and 17's), the second highest number from the Gateway Region.

We cordially invite you to return often for updated information....Kevin Nelson, Club Director

The website is updated and is accurate as of 7:36 a.m. on July 27, 2015.  

Powerhitters Played at 2015 USAV National Championships - Rank 2nd Among Gateway Teams Entered

The Club is pleased to announce that the 13's, 14's, 15's, 16's, and 17's teams played at the USA Volleyball National Championships in New Orleans - please see the Tournaments or Calendar links for a list of specific play dates. The Club's five teams entered gives us the 2nd highest number from the Gateway Region competing at Nationals, and we are but one of six clubs to send more than one team.    

This acceptance follows the 14's-16's playing last year in Minneapolis. The Club is already looking forward to the 2016 Championships in Indianapolis, where it again intends to send its 13's-17's teams.
