CVC Players Participate in CHRVA High Performance program


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!

CVC Red Hornets Development Program


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.

Dates / Times / Location:
This program runs at the Roger Carter  Center in Ellicott City
All practices will run from 6:00pm to 8:00pm
Roger Carter Center: 3000 Milltowne Drive (formerly Mt. Ida Drive), Ellicott City, MD 21043

Cost: $280 (reduced for the remainder of the season)

Age Group:
9 – 11 years-old, using September 1, 2014 as the determining date*
