Blue Smoke VBC accomodates those athletes that play more than one sport.

Blue Smoke VBC philosophy:

Blue Smoke Volleyball Club is a small club but big on talent. With a roster limited to 10 or 11 per team, Blue Smoke offers the opportunity for more playing time than most other clubs. This allows for more individual growth and development. Operating under the belief that price should not dictate the level of commitment to the sport by the players or coaches; Blue Smoke is one of the most affordable teams. Members learn and grow in a fun and family like atmosphere, but also develop the physical and mental skills necessary to compete against the best. Blue Smoke girls are spirited and hardworking and are rewarded for their efforts by their successes in tournaments. For most Blue Smoke team members, volleyball is the main focus, but two sport athletes are not penalized. It is the team policy that young athletes should not have to choose a certain sport.

While the ultimate goal of the team is to qualify for Nationals, it is always the objective to be better than we were before and have fun doing it.

Blue Smoke VBC serves the Southside of Chicago/Southwest Suburbs including Beverly, Mt. Greenwood, Evergreen Park, Oak Lawn, Chicago Ridge, Orland Park, Crestwood, Alsip, Midlothian, Oak Forest, and Blue Island.
