East Ohio Volleyball Club
Welcome to the East Ohio Volleyball Club Website
The EAST OHIO Volleyball Club has been teaching volleyball since 1992. 

The goals of EOVC are to provide over 100 hours of skill development, team strategy, and tournament experience to each player in our club.  We want to be able to send our players back to their high school teams as one of the best players to their school.  We will not put any unreasonable demands on players when conflicts occur with EOVC and another seasonal high school sport.  We also will not demand any player to choose between family or religious occasions and EOVC practices/tournaments.  The EOVC philosophy is "FAMILY, SCHOOL, and then ATHLETICS."

The EAST OHIO Volleyball Club will be conducting open tryouts on: 

Sunday, November 10 and 17,  2019
5th - 8th = 1:00 - 3:00
9th - 12th = 3:00 - 5:00
Any Grade = 5:00 - 6:00

Wednesday, November 14 and 20, 2018
                Any Grade = 6:00 - 8:00

We will continue to practice until May 2020. Playing on a Jr. Club Team will not affect a high school player’s eligibility as long as all of the Ohio High School Athletic Association (OHSAA) regulations are followed. Jr. Club Teams have their own insurance.  They are regulated by USA Volleyball, the national governing body for volleyball in the United States.

The The cost for joining the EAST OHIO Volleyball Club is $600. This includes  insurance, gym rental, equipment, uniforms, and tournament fees.  Players are responsible for their own personal equipment such as: kneepads, and volleyball shoes.  This year, players will be responsible for registering with the Ohio Valley Region and paying a registration fee with the OVR.  Players will not be allowed to practice until all forms are turned in.  A $100 “Commit to Play” deposit will guarantee your spot on your team.  This will be due after you are offered a position to participate on one of our teams.  The remainder will be due by your team’s first tournament.  NO REFUNDS WILL BE GIVEN.
