About Horizon VBC

Welcome to the Horizon Volleyball Club website. We hope that you will find the site informative, timely and enjoyable. If you find that you cannot find what you need or have a special request please email us. The team email address is horizonvbc@gmail.com. You may also reach the club director at vbdig2set@yahoo.com. We will try to get to your request in a timely manner. Usually we monitor the email on a bi-weekly basis during the club season and once a week during the "off-season".

Horizon players are off to their respective schools and are continuing their volleyball play during the high school season. Coaches have been traveling about to watch our players continue in their development. It has been great to see our girls shine at every level.

The new 2014-2015 club season is fast approaching. For planning purposes you can find the tentative schedule under the link for "Tournament Schedule 2015" to the left in the navigation bar or on the "Club Calendar" link. As always, schedules can change but we try to give you a "heads up" for planning purposes.

Tryouts are scheduled for October 11, and October 12. Age groups 15 and under will tryout from 4:00 - 6:30 on the 11th and 12:30 - 3:30 on the 12th. Age groups 16 and up will tryout from 6:30 - 9:00 on the 11th and 4:00 - 7:00 on the 12th. Due to the increased number of players trying out, there will be cuts if the numbers of players exceed the number of teams available.

Hope to see you next month. Check back often, we will update our pages as information becomes available.

We want your player to realize their full potential. We will do this through direct coaching and practice. Attendance and commitment by your player will have a direct effect on how well they progress. We encourage players to accept the responsibility for their growth and steer away from the excuses that plague our society. Personal responsibility and effort on the part of your player will allow them to progress and ensure that they are excited about their growth in the sport of volleyball.

Any extra-curricular activity should be fun. Our philosophy is that we mix strong coaching with skill-based challenges and activities that push the athletes to better themselves and become a cohesive unit while having a great deal of fun. Our coaches are actively involved with the athletes on the court to ensure the best possible outcomes for the time invested by the athlete. 

The makeup of teams for the 2015 club season will depend on the number of girls showing an interest in our club. For the 2014 season we fielded one team of 13's, a team of 14's, two teams of 16's, a 17's team and two teams of 18's.  All members are are part of the Horizon Volleyball Club and where two teams are fielded in an age division we try to balance the teams for equal competition rather than have and "A" and "B" level team. Coach WongCoach BrooksCoach Nesbitt, Coach Ulibarri and Coach Gapelu are our head coaches. Each brings a wide variety of expertise and experience with volleyball in the High Desert. We also have several assistant coaches who contribute to the girls development  as needed.
