introducing serve city club girls volleyball

Girls volleyball is Serve City's largest and most popular program. We currently offer girls volleyball teams for ages 11 to 18 throughout the suburbs in our Serve City Wheaton, Ravenswood, Downers Grove, Elgin, Sycamore and Medinah locations.

Our regional teams cater to players who are either new to volleyball, multi-sport athletes or experienced players who want a less intense time commitment and more affordable, family-friendly club experience while still receiving quality coaching in a positive environment. Full-season regional teams practice twice a week and play tournaments from November to April. We also offer spring regional teams that practice twice a week and play from February to April. All teams play exclusively in Saturday tournaments at Chicago suburban locations.

Our regional teams are led by some of the most qualified coaches in the Chicago area. These teams are an excellent tool for developing athletes' skills, love for the game and understanding of the strategies and tactics of volleyball while preparing them for their middle-school and high-school seasons.

tryouts

Serve City runs girls volleyball tryouts for our 2016-2017 national and regional teams in October. Our coaches will run each participant through a range of skills testing to determine the best team fit for each athlete. Our $5 tryout fee is the most inexpensive of any club in the Chicago area, and every athlete who tries out receives a Serve City Athletics t-shirt. The fee can be paid in advance or, for late registrants, can be paid at the tryout.

Tryout dates, times and locations are specific to each of our six club locations in Wheaton, Ravenswood, Downers Grove, Elgin, Sycamore, and Medinah. To register for a tryout, please fill out the form below and indicate at which location your daughter will try out.
