Vienna Elite Volleyball Club and Apple Valley Volleyball Club are excited to announce that the two clubs have merged to become one organization. Under the agreement, Vienna Elite Volleyball Club will integrate Apple Valley Volleyball Club into its organizational structure. The name “Apple Valley Volleyball Club” will no longer be used, but the club will continue to operate, now as “Vienna Elite Volleyball Club (West).” This integration will allow players in the Winchester area to have significantly more opportunities to be on the volleyball court.
Vienna Elite Volleyball Club plans to undergo a name change in the near future to more accurately reflect its presence in the overall Northern Virginia area. While the club originally started as Vienna Youth Volleyball in 2006 in the Vienna area, it has expanded and grown through the past 15 years to draw players from Virginia, Maryland, DC, and West Virginia, and the new name will reflect this.
Vienna Elite Volleyball Club (West) will begin to offer camps/clinics and other intensive training programs at the Winchester Sportsplex immediately. One of these programs is the Fall High School League, which will compete against other club-level teams. This will help players keep their competitive skills sharp during the void that has been caused by the delay of high school volleyball season in the state of Virginia.
Vienna Elite Volleyball Club was formed in 2010 to address the growing demand for youth volleyball in Northern Virginia. The club is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated to providing affordable, open-level volleyball that balances high level competitive volleyball in a family-friendly environment. Vienna Elite has experienced tremendous growth and success during the past several years and has established itself as a premier volleyball club in the CHRVA region. Each season the club has 10 to 15 teams ranging in ages U11 thru U18. It hosts over 40 CHRVA sanctioned tournaments utilizing four different facilities, including the Winchester Sportsplex. With this agreement, Vienna Elite Volleyball Club (West) will form several club teams which will practice and compete primarily at the Winchester Sportsplex. We hope to offer teams ranging in age from U13 to U18 in Winchester depending on the demand and interest level of players.
