We’re looking forward to a great season!!
The Fresno Volleyball Club was founded in the Fall of 1988 by Coach Roy Verduzco and a group of parents. From the start, the club was inclusive of boys from various local high schools in Fresno, Clovis, Sanger, and Madera, to promote the sport, and to provide opportunities for players to achieve at a higher level through training and competitions at regional and national levels.
What started as one squad of boys has now grown to 14 teams of boys and girls that compete in the Northern California region of USVBA club volleyball. Like other age-group sports, our club expects a time and financial commitment to meet our goals. The FVBC, is a registered non-profit, and over the years, we have helped 85 students attain athletic scholarships to universities such as Fresno State, Long Beach State, San Diego State, CSU Northridge, University of the Pacific, USC, UCLA, Ohio State, University of Hawaii, UCSB, Pepperdine, Notre Dame, University of Santa Clara, the U.S. Air Force Academy, University of Cincinnati, and Stanford University. Many more athletes have been recruited as walk-ons and then have earned scholarships after they have proven themselves. But the club is also about the novice and intermediate player who wants to hone their skills to become better middle school and high school players.
The boys season is from September-December with tryouts in late August. The girls season is from December-May with tryouts immediately following the high school girls season, which ends in November. Practices are scheduled twice weekly and are held at various sites in Fresno.
Our boys have won gold, silver, and bronze medals at the USA Boys National Championships. Under former club coach, Damian Elder, who is the current Head Women’s Coach at Mercer University, we have had three girls teams finish in the Top 8 at the National Championships. Former club Setter, David Kniffin, is the current Head Men’s Coach at UC Irvine, where his teams have won NCAA national championships and he has been named as NCAA Coach of the Year.
Our coaching staff and current board members are set for another exciting season of club volleyball. We hope you join us!
