A new program designed to teach kindergarten to sixth-grade children

with little or no experience how to play volleyball is called Volleykids.

Volleyball coaching is provided in a six-week long program for two hours

a week which is divided between volleyball practice and competition.

The youth volleyball drills for Volleykids are conducted on a smaller

volleyball court, lower net and a softer volleyball ball is used.

Volleyball instruction for Volleykids centers on teaching proper volleyball

technique for various skills, introducing basic volleyball rules like the

development of three contacts to a side and incorporating fun volleyball

Illinois Volleyball Clubs: Camps

In partnership with the village of Orlando Park, Attack VBC is now

offering their own beach volleyball camps, along with club classes,

volleyball Camps and Volleykids sessions.

Attack VBC staff is committed to giving their best effort to "ensure all

athletes have the greatest experience and leave knowing it was worth

the time and expense."

Illinois Volleyball Clubs: Circus VBC

Girls learn to play volleyball at a fun volleyball club with a fun name.

A mainstay on Chicago's club volleyball scene, Circus Volleyball club was

founded thirty years ago by Dave Boze, who started the club with only

one freshman volleyball team in 1980.

Dave, who was nicknamed "Bozo" gave the new volleyball club its name

in response to people calling the club "Dave Boze's Circus."

Circus is the oldest volleyball club in the Great Lakes Region and for the

2009-2010 season has six volleyball teams--one 18s, four 16s, and one

14s team.

Rich Vrba has been the director of this relatively small volleyball club

with approximately 200 members for ten years.

Despite its size, Circus has a rich history in competing and winning at

the AAU National volleyball tournaments and competitions, where it

garnered four national titles, five silver medals and three times finished

third--all within a short time after the club's birth.

Circus volleyball club coaches are former high school and college

volleyball players and coaches who've coached at the club anywhere

from two to seven years.

In the 1980s, the Circus volleyball club program embraced the

importance of learning to play volleyball by traveling and experiencing

international competition.

Circus volleyball teams have competed overseas in the Virgin Islands,

Denmark, Hawaii, Puerto Rico, Stockholm and Copenhagen. In the 90s

Circus volleyball teams continued to travel and learned to play volleyball

domestically in locations that included New Orleans, Miami, Ft.

Lauderdale and Key West.

To be the best you have to learn to play volleyball against the best,

and so Circus volleyball club players travel to compete currently in some

of the largest junior club volleyball tournaments located in Indiana,

Michigan, Wisconsin, and Missouri.

The club is based out of Jane Addams Junior High School and boasts a

significant number of players who have received college volleyball

scholarships. "Since 1980, 110 Circus graduates received college

volleyball scholarships to over 70 different universities."

A few Circus alumni players include:

Liz Berg - North Carolina

Chris White - Michigan

Lindsay Trudell - Indiana University

Vikki Simonis - University of the Pacific

Karen Staab - Minnesota

Kristin Roman - Wisconsin

Karlin Sander - Southwest Missouri

Cindy Novak - Bradley

Kim Norris - Regis

Kim Neiman - Purdue

Katie Meyer - Rice

Marianne Nance - North Carolina

Katie Lotarski - Florida State

Debbie Lund - Miami-Ohio

Sara Aldrich - Georgia Tech

Jessi Bornack - University of Connecticut

Heather Brewster - Eastern Illinois

Illinois Volleyball Clubs: Eastside VBC

Volleyball scholarships from college volleyball teams are a priority at Eastside VBC.

Having put the "a" in "ambitious" when it comes to assisting their club

volleyball players with receiving college volleyball scholarship offers, the

Eastside Volleyball Club has adopted a proactive system to its college

they record data for Speed, Power, Agility, Reaction, and Quickness of

participating volleyball players.

After the physical information is registered, players have a chance to

Players are designated by a numbering system utilizing arm bands,

afterwards data is compiled at each event and is distributed on the

volleyball player's behalf by Eastside VBC to recruiters present at the

event or who request the information from club director Tim Van de


Located at 1621 Highview Road in East Peoria, Illinois, Eastside VBC is

considered one of the foremost junior volleyball clubs in the area and

has positioned itself to be the kind of committed club volleyball program

volleyball player will seek out first.
