HVC Uniforms in Hunduras

Former Horseshoe Volleyball Club volleyball players donated their old uniforms to help the missions in Honduras. The Horseshoe Volleyball Club gave the donated jerseys to Mount Aloysius women's volleyball Brianna Baker, who recently went on a mission trip to Honduras. 


Welcome to the Horseshoe Volleyball Club website.  The Horseshoe Volleyball Club was founded by Bob Kasun and Ken Streilein and is in its eighth year of existence.   The purpose of the club is to help raise the level of play of girls volleyball by giving an opportunity for girls to play volleyball in the high school off-season.  It is done by organizing players into teams and playing in tournaments during the club volleyball season.

Teams play in tournaments sanctioned by either the Amateur Athletic Union (AAU) or USA Volleyball (USAV).  Tournaments are held on weekends and may be either single-day (Saturday or Sunday), two-day, or three-day events.  The club season begins in January and can extend into June when National competitions are held.  Some of our teams will finish their season in March and others will conclude their season in either April or May.  You can check each teams' schedule by going to their individual pages. 

Check back often during the season as we add updates of teams and players!
