Welcome to the Austin Starlings Volleyball Club home page!


Austin Starlings Volleyball is a community-based 501(c)3 non-profit organization. We are not a business, we are truly a club of volleyball players. We provide an equal opportunity for girls from diverse socioeconomic backgrounds to train and compete at the same level as other club volleyball teams. Founded in 2013, this is our second year in existence and our focus is on teamwork, health, positive life skills, and building a lasting appreciation and enjoyment of the sport of volleyball. Players, parents, and coaches are expected to support and reinforce our ETA (Effort, Teamwork & Attitude) values.

During my experience as a parent, player and coach, I've seen many promising athletes not pursue their passion for volleyball due to the high cost of many club teams. I decided to join the Starling Family in order to offer a club level experience for all players. We pick our teams based upon skills, attitude and merit and not financial consideration. As a volunteer organization, we keep our costs as low as possible while still offering a highly competitive club environment. 
Dennis Harrison, Club Director

After a very successful inaugural year, we are planning on fielding one 13U team and will consider other ages based on securing coaches with a positive attitude and a willingness to learn.

We will be expanding in the 2015 - 2016 season and are looking for passionate coaches, players or parents who want to coach at the club level. Our current staff will teach you the skills you need to lead a team. If you are interested in volunteering to help us grow and coach, please email our director and set up a time to talk.

LOCATION - Our members are mainly located in NW Austin area but we have players from Pflugerville and Manor since our practice facility is now centrally located.

FEES - Austin Starlings provides the same full season of volleyball training as other clubs, however our Club fees (~$600) are as minimal as we can make them. Fundraising and donations are used to supplement our fees and each player is encouraged to contribute to the organization's success and fundraising efforts.

Thank you and have a wonderful School Season,
The Austin Starlings Coaching Team.
