Columbia Volleyball Club has been participating in the Capitol Hill Classic since its beginnings 9 years ago, and for the first time all CVC teams participated in the event where more than 850 teams competed over the Presidents Day Weekend in Washington DC. The tournament, hosted by Metro Atlantic Volleyball Club, has grown tremendously over the years and now has a qualifier-like feel to it as teams come from all over the country to compete with team from the CHRVA region.
The 12U Falcons had an outstanding weekend, finishing with the Bronze Medal by finishing third in the Gold Bracket for the 12U division. The Falcons finished with a 6-2 match record, falling in the semi-final to the eventual division champion.
The 16U Lightning also had a strong weekend with a 5-2 Match record, finishing in the Gold Bracket of the newly-formed Patriot division.

Players work hard over the Summer and off-season to become better players. One great way to do this is to tryout for, and participate in, USAV’s High Performance training program which culminates in a national tournament, typically in late Summer where regions such as CHRVA compete against one another.
Three of our current CVC players made CHRVA High Performance teams for the Summer of 2014 and attended the USAV 2014 Indoor High Performance championships in Tulsa, Oklahoma. From 16U Lightning, Emily Przybyla and Madison Paige; and from 15U Storm, Alexa Welch. Nice job, ladies!
We started our program on November 24th but we still have about 5 more spots open!
The Columbia Volleyball Club has established a development program tailored to younger players looking to enhance their skills in order to eventually play club volleyball once they reach an appropriate age. THIS PROGRAM IS NOT FOR BEGINNER PLAYERS. We like for our players in this program to have basic skills mastered (passing, setting & serving) and at least 1-2 years of recreation volleyball experience.
The Red Hornets development program is coached by CVC coaches and is a fun learning environment where young athletes can learn more about this great sport, make friends and work on volleyball skills. This is not a club travel team; there will be no tournament play… although there will be plenty of scrimmaging, games and fun contests once the girls get more comfortable.
The Red Hornets Program will meet once a week (Mondays) starting November 24th and going through May 18th.
