Who is Southern Swing?

Southern Swing Volleyball Club was founded in 2006 for the purpose of providing young ladies in Victoria
and the surrounding areas with the opportunity to participate in the sport of volleyball at a competitive level
separate and apart from their local school programs.  Of even greater importance is the development of
players with positive attitudes and solid character that will be successful not only in volleyball but in
whatever they choose to undertake as young adults.  As a result, our coaches and those working with our
players are carefully chosen to support these goals.  We truly believe that the behavior of our coaches
should be exemplary in order to demand the same of our players ... and that same expectation extends to
our parents and volunteers as they work with us to support and develop our players.



What Programs Does Southern Swing Offer?

Club

Junior Olympic Volleyball is informally known as Club Volleyball or "Club".  It is an organized, nationwide
system sanctioned by USA Volleyball that allows young players the opportunity to receive advanced training
and compete at a high level outside of their school seasons.  In addition, players benefit from the chance of
exposure to college coaches and potential scholarship opportunities for those that desire to pursue them.

Southern Swing operates under the Lone Star Region of USA Volleyball and supports Club volleyball teams
for girls age 11 through 18.  Try-outs for these teams are typically held in September each year and are
conducted by age group with team selections being made based on skill level, experience and positions
needed.  Practices for the Club season begin in October or November depending on age level and continue
through March or April when the scheduled Club season ends.  Club teams will participate in weekend
tournaments primarily in Austin, Houston or San Antonio including both one-day and overnight
tournaments.  The number of tournaments will vary depending on age.  In addition to these out of town
tournaments, Southern Swing also hosts USAV sanctioned tournaments in Victoria for various age divisions.

Girls participating in our Club program will experience a high level of play in a competitive environment and
will have the opportunity to play some of the best teams in their age groups from around the state.  For
more information about our Club teams and coaches you can visit our
"Teams & Coaches" page and select a
team to see their team photo, team roster and season schedule.



Other Programs

Southern Swing offers a variety of programs outside of the Club volleyball environment that are open to all
players regardless of their skill level or club affiliation.  Players in grades K through 12 will find
opportunities to make new friends, improve their skills and stay competitive throughout the year by
participating in one or all of these programs.  There's something for everyone!

  • Rising Stars

    The Rising Stars program is open to girls in grades 3 - 8.  It is designed for players that are not quite
    ready for the commitment of a traveling club team but want to participate in an extensive, structured
    training program that allows them to improve their skills while staying active in the sport with a
    designated coach and team over a period of several months.  

    The program combines several of Southern Swing's other programs into one package that includes
    Fall League (grades 3 - 6 only), Developmental Training 1 (Winter Session), Spring League and
    Developmental Training 2 (Spring Session).  Rising Stars players will stay together as a team and work
    with a designated Southern Swing coach throughout the program.  Each of the individual programs
    included in Rising Stars may be registered for separately as well; however, this program gives players
    the added benefits of weekly prates during Fall and Spring League as well as a convenient one-time
    registration and combined registration fee.

    Rising Stars teams are formed in the Fall of each year and no try-out is necessary to participate.

  • Leagues
