Stars and Spikes VBC: Welcome

Friday, September 13


We are again organizing teams for our club season which runs January through May. Club volleyball is essential in achieving and maintaining a competitive scholastic volleyball program. Tournaments are scheduled on Saturdays or Sundays and require a full day commitment. The tournaments are usually within a 2 hour drive from Ottawa. Teams will be composed of 9 players (with exceptions in the 12U). Teams can only consist of 3 players from the same school (this is an OVR rule not a Stars & Spikes Rule). We practice once or twice per week, depending upon gym availability. Tryout information is enclosed.

TRYOUTS will be held @ OTTAWA GLANDORF HIGH SCHOOL (630 Glendale Ave. Ottawa, OH 45875)
