At SRVC, we take great pride in our “Culture of Excellence!”

SRVC promotes a positive youth sports culture where players enjoy practices and tournaments, remain challenged and consistently improve their skills. Our coaches not only teach players the skills and strategy behind the game, but also a respect for the tradition of the game and all those involved.

We focus on both the personal and athletic development of our athletes, striving to create a positive and effective learning environment where our players achieve individual excellence within a team dynamic. Since our inception, we have strived to create traditions that build a legacy for our club and our players.

"As a smaller, selective club, we are able to provide our players with individualized attention and maintain a positive, family-oriented environment."

In the off-season, we offer clinics and camps to help players improve their skills in specific areas and prepare for tryouts. SRVC also offers a competitive beach volleyball program during the spring and summer months.

Testimonials

"My daughter has played for SRVC for the last 4 years and our experience has been positive from the very beginning. I have been impressed by the overall coaching strategy which is set in place by our Technical Director and the focus on improving my daughter’s skills as an individual and as a member of her team. 

At the first club she played for, I felt as though they just wanted to take our money, that there was no real focus on where my daughter best fit and how her skills could improve. But at SRVC I have always felt that the coaches -- from the Technical Director to the assistant coaches -- have taken the time to get to know my daughter, to leverage and improve the skills she brings to the club and to make her the best player she can be. She has learned the value of hard work; she appreciates the emphasis on building her skills from drills, cross-training, nutrition to team-building activities. My daughter loves SRVC because it feels like a family to her and I believe it is one of the best investments we could make for her!" -- The Sorrells Family
