Blue Steel VBC: 


All teams will be trained/coached by experienced people ensuring all teams of qualified technique and up to date skills. All boys will get a fair evaluation at tryouts. All boys will be trained in agility and plyometrics. Our club will have opportunities for everyone (either on a team or involved in trainings.) We will offer additional opportunities in the summer for an additional fee (youth leagues, personal training sessions, camps.) 


Mission: A dedicated, traveling Volleyball club participating in local and distance tournaments, to include college show-case events, with the express purpose of qualifying for the National Tournament(s) (USAV, AAU). 


Purpose: To provide young boys teams in which to showcase their talents, by improving and honing their skill sets, at their respective positions on the court. To provide a venue for 10’s-18’s age boys to solidify friendships, and compete at high levels of competition as teammates throughout the volleyball season. This provides inter-reliability and dependence of personalities both on and off the court allowing the team to concentrate on a high level of play at the club and off-season school levels. 


This is a dedicated program. We encourage those individuals trying out for positions on the team to understand this is a single-focused program at this elite level. Multiple sport athletes that have conflicting schedules are urged to evaluate their priorities, as we will be expecting full dedication to training, practices and tournaments. 


We desire an interactive and intertwined parent level of involvement to include support, camaraderie, respect and encouragement for all of the fellow player parents and players. Social involvement is highly encouraged among parents as we believe this level of friendship filters down to each of the players allowing them to focus on themselves, their teammates and their game. 


Divisions: Traveling competitive club teams and regional teams


Fees will cover the following: This includes parent share of tournament fees, coach’s salaries, training equipment, club fees, and individual travel cost that may include airfare and lodging with meals. Uniforms and tournament food donations will be separate.
