Club Overview

Established in 1994, St. Louis Metro VBC is dedicated to developing young athletes through both practice and competition. Our coaches are committed to teaching the fundamentals of volleyball in a fun, competitive environment. Additionally, St. Louis Metro focuses on instilling teamwork, responsibility, commitment, and discipline in all of our young athletes. Ultimately, it is our goal to aid players in their pursuit to play volleyball at the high school and college level.

Information for Prospective Players

Each year, St. Louis Metro will field multiple teams for each age group, based on the availability of qualified coaches and interested athletes. Each player will be notified at the end of the tryout if they have made the team. Upon accepting a position on the team, the player and a parent must attend a commitment meeting.

Our season begins at tryouts and typically ends in May. The number of practices and tournaments varies with each team and is largely dependent on the age group. Players can expect to practice 1-2 times per week. Our teams typically practice in the South County and South City areas. Additionally, players can expect to play in approximately 8 local tournaments and 1-2 out-of-town tournaments. Our usual sites for travel tournaments include Indiana, Kentucky, Iowa, Missouri, and Illinois.

Fees cover expenses for club fees as well as USAV & AAU player, team, and coach registration. Fees are non-refundable. Additional expenses include travel costs and uniform fees.
