Simple Q&As Regarding SERV Offerings

1. Is SERV just a "starter club"?

SERV has never been a "starter club".  We opened our doors with 9 travel teams. Each year, we have grown. In 2023-24, we had 23 teams, practicing in three facilities.  We do not recruit players nor coaches from other clubs.  We have always developed coaches and players.  SERV-trained players who transfer into other clubs do so because they need a change. That's the beauty of having several clubs in the area. If a player wants to play at a different club because their friends are there,  they can. We know that they will always have a place for them to call home.  We have seen many athletes return because they found out it is and should be more about the family inside the home... not the greener grass.  Some of the players who leave SERV have ended up on college courts. Of course, the other clubs say they trained those players; but, we all know that a player's skills are defined in their first three years of playing.  From that point forward, the skills are refined.  In any event, when players decide to leave SERV, we do not hold it against them. Once a SERV player, always a SERV player.  

2. What do you offer that other clubs do not?

Overall, our coaches have hundreds of seasons of experience. Many of the staff coach year-round. Volleyball is an important part of their everyday life.  Not because it puts money in their pocket... because these coaches can teach life skills on the court.  

Among the 32 coaches, we have 11 active high school and middle school coaches, a former DI head coach of a college, a former DI player, several DII players, several multi-sport athletes.  9 members of our staff have greater than 15 years of experience. Our staff is full of well-rounded nice productive adults.  We use Baller and HUDL to review game footage. We implement all of the same  recruiting platforms other clubs use.  We have a network of college coaches we can call at any time to get players recruited. 

Our coaches analyze team film and develop our players not by chasing the season. We know what our teams need.  We are constantly building on our systems and formulas.  We still teach and study the game because each player matters more than their tuition check.  Our team size is dependent on the talent and synergy of who tries out.  If players do not fit the formula established by the coach, the team does not pick up the extra athlete just to "make the budget" work. 

3. Do you only offer travel teams, or do you offer local club games/program too? For instance, I have a daughter who plays travel soccer, and although they do travel for a tournament twice a year, most of their actual season games are in VB, Chesapeake, or Williamsburg.

Yes, we offer travel teams, a grassroots program (for beginners and maybe less confident players), and summer leagues. 

Our travel program does not have only regionalized teams. But, very few of our teams get on a plane for their travel schedule.  Most of the venues we play are in the following cities: Virginia Beach, Richmond, Rocky Mount, NC, Salisbury, MD, Ocean City, MD, Greensboro, NC, Charlotte, NC, Raleigh, NC, Myrtle Beach, SC.  A few teams travel to NJ and Pennsylvania. The more competitive teams head to Nationals in Orlando or wherever the USAV Jr Nationals are competing that year. In the 2023-24 season, our 13Select team is going to Dallas, Texas.

4. What is the grassroots program?

Grassroots consists of athletes who want to learn the game of volleyball, establish confidence and rise to the next level in a less competitive realm. This season, we have two teams that are Grassroots beginners and two teams who are more advanced. The two beginners teams play against other club grassroots teams. The more advanced teams compete at the Fieldhouse in their age groups. Both teams practice twice a week and focus on fundamentals. We have adult and junior coaches coaching the Grassroots to ensure we have coverage for the players and to train our future coaches. 

5. Do you offer any type of summer camps?

We usually run a few clinics during the season; but, not a true camp.  There are several large facilities and colleges in the area that hold camps.  During the summer, we run several leagues. This summer, we are going to offer the following:

  • Beginners Bootcamp (10-12 practices and 3 game days over 6 weeks)
  • Intermediate League (1 practice and 1 match per week)
  • Advanced League (1 practice and 1 match per week)
  • Girls High School Captains League (Sunday afternoon)
  • Boys High School Captains League (Sunday evenings)
  • Friday night Adult League
