Welcome to the 2023 Whirlwind Volleyball Club travel season!  It's hard to believe the summer is behind us and we're preparing for the upcoming travel season.  We hope you all enjoyed your summer and are enjoying and learning during your scholastic season.  Here is the registration information that you have been looking for.  

In order to attend a tryout, every player will need to complete the registration requirements.  Please use the following instructions to complete the registration process.  There are 2 registration steps that need to be completed - both registrations are required.

NOTE:  Registration is not available until 9/27 due to upgrades required.  Please check back on 9/27 and we apologize for the inconvenience.

  1. Whirlwind tryout registration – Please register for the Whirlwind tryout registration as soon as possible.  Please go to www.whirlwindvbc.com and click on the registration button.  You should find the "2023 Registration".  For those new to the club, this website sets up your account as a family, the first screen should be filled out for the parent who will receive all information.  The e-mail address placed on that page will be the e-mail account where all information, including invoicing, is provided.  There is a $50 tryout fee.
  2. USAV tryout registration – this registration is required because every participant trying out is required to be a registered member of USA Volleyball.  Please register at https://xlvball.org – across the top you will find a “Play Volleyball” button, when you click on that you will find a “Registration” tab.  In item #7, you will find a link to the registration.  When filling out the registration, please select the “22-23 Tryout Registration – Sept-Dec – there is a $20 registration fee.  Once your player is registered, you should receive an e-mail with their registration card.  Please have your player bring this card to the tryout.  Once a player has accepted a roster position, this registration will be required to be upgraded to a full membership requiring an additional payment of $50.

Whirlwind Volleyball Club

The Whirlwind Volleyball Club was established to expand Junior Olympic Volleyball in the triple cities region by offering a greater opportunity for competitive play and an enhanced volleyball training experience.  Whirlwind Volleyball believes that every player should be offered the opportunity to develop skills that will enable them to excel and compete successfully at the interscholastic, regional and/or national level of youth volleyball.

We are a community-based organization committed to training and developing student athletes through competitive participation in the sport of volleyball.  We strive to provide a solid foundation of fundamental and technical skills to help participants develop, not only as athletes, but also as individuals.  Teaching positive lifelong character traits including sportsmanship, leadership, and cooperation are important to the success of our teams.

We are committed to providing the best possible environment for our volleyball players to reach their maximum playing potential through excellence in coaching and community support.  Our players will be challenged to excel not only for their own personal growth but also for the betterment of their team, the organization, the development of area club coaches and the communities in which they live.

The Whirlwind Volleyball Club is a member club of the Iroquois-Empire Volleyball Association (IREVA) (http://www.ireva.org) who is a member region of USA Volleyball (http://www.teamusa.org).
