Yakima Elite Volleyball was established in 2017 when club director Nicole Marang learned about the growing sport of Beach Volleyball for Youth/Juniors. We began with practices, camps and tournaments to help introduce beach volleyball to Yakima. In 2020 amidst the covid-19 pandemic we decided to add Indoor Club Volleyball to our offerings as there was limited/no volleyball available for athletes during this team. We established ourselves as a USAV, AAU and JVA Club to allow for multiple insurance and tournament opportunities. What began as a drop in program outside has developed into a year around training program for outdoor and indoor volleyball. We look forward to the continued development of our program with a long-term goal to purchase/own our very own indoor and outdoor facility.
We are currently registered with Yakima Schools, East Valley School and West Valley Schools for our practices indoor and have various access to other facilities throughout the Yakima Valley. Due to COVID school usage for community groups is limited.
Our sand program takes place in Selah, WA at the court next to the Elks Golf course. Additionally, we sometimes rent the court at the Yakima Athletic Club as well as the park in Moxee. We hold grass practices and tournaments at the West Valley Park in Yakima
If you are interested in joining our program, coaching, camps, tournaments or facility use please contact our Director at firstname.lastname@example.org of call or text 509-302-0550
