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 2014-15 season. This is our 10th 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. We look forward to an exciting 2014-15 season.
We cordially invite you to return often for updated information....Kevin Nelson, Club Director

The Club is pleased to announce that the above three teams played in the Patriot Division at the 2014 USAV Junior Girl's National Championships in Minneapolis. Of the approximate 140 clubs in the Gateway Region, we were but one of 10 that sent teams to Nationals. Pictures are on the Photos link. Players and parents enjoyed the fact that the all-inclusive Club fee meant that they spent nothing on paying for the coaches' travel expenses, distinguishing the Club from others. The Club intends to send all eligible teams (13, 14, 15, 16, & 17) to New Orleans in 2015 on the same basis. Pictured below is the 15's team.
In 2013-14, several Clubs joined together to form the Premier Invitational League. Rather than simply playing tournaments, and often not knowing who one might be playing until players received a schedule the week of the event, a League was formed to insure top quality weekly competition leading to the League's own Champonship. The first year drew 116 teams across eight age groups. Our Club was one of the first to join, We look forward to an expanded membership and an exciting second season in 2014-15. Premier League tournaments, like all events in which we play, are listed on the Tournaments link.
