Blair Volleyball Club: Welcome

                          2016-2017 Blair Elite Volleyball Club  




I can't believe how quickly this season has gone by!  I'm hoping the opportunity to play club volleyball has been enjoyable! With this being the first year for many of our players we have been excited to see the progress our teams have made.  It is difficult competing the first year as many of the opponents have been playing together for several years.  It is our hope as our players get more club experience they will be competing at a hgher level and be more successful.  On behalf of our coaching staff we want to thank everyone for their support and encouragement this season.

If you are interested in lessons this summer please feel free to contact me.
