Determination....perseverance...sportsmanship. These are all qualities that make up the core philosophies of Epic Volleyball.

Diamond Elite has programs for 1st graders to Seniors in High School, and everyone in between.

2014 Stateline Summer Volleyball League
Epic United Volleyball Club
Purpose: To establish a league that is competitive enough for club players, but not too advanced for beginning players. To accomplish this, Epic United expert staff will teach fundamentals during three clinic dates.
Most teams will then be coached by Epic United’s varsity club players during the season who will host a couple of practices for team cohesion. After these clinic dates, game play will progress.
Usually about 1/3 of the league is comprised of our club players, so the competition level is good for a club player as well. Any boys & girls regardless of club affiliation may play.
Clinic Dates: Three clinic dates will be included on June 1-3 in the evening at the Diggz. 5th Grade clinic 5:30-7:00, 6th/7th Grade Clinic 5:30-7:30, 8th -12th Grade Clinic 7-9PM
