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 organizations 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
