The YMCA of Greater Cincinnati's Club Volleyball Program is dedicated to providing young female athletes with quality training and higher-level competition. We aim to enhance both individual and team volleyball skills through practice, scrimmage, and tournament play. Our goal is to help foster life-long skills such as discipline, responsibility, teamwork, and sportsmanship in each player. We put a strong emphasis on ensuring that each of our players is dedicating their time to being first a 'student' and 'athlete' second. 

Club Volleyball is for girls between the ages of 11-17 (Specific age groups for teams are determined by OVR and USA Volleyball).
