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

This acceptance follows the 14's-16's playing last year in Minneapolis, where they were but one of ten Clubs from the Region to participate. The Club is already looking forward to the 2016 Championships in Indianapolis, where it again intends to send its 13's-17's teams.

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. Pictured below is the 15's team.
