Our National Organization

Welcome to the Austin Starlings Volleyball Club home page!

Austin Starlings Volleyball is a community-based 501(c)3 non-profit organization. We provide the 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. If you are interested in volunteering to help us grow and coach, please email our director.

Tryout Date is set!

The Austin Starlings will hold our 2014/2015 tryouts for our 13U team:
  • August 16th
  • 8:30am to 11:30am
  • Bethany United Methodist Church
  • 10010 Anderson Mill Road, Austin, TX

We will fill the openings on our 13U team and are looking forward to another great season. Tryouts will be no charge, but donations will be accepted to alleviate the gym costs.

If you are interested in attending tryouts and joining our club, please preregister and add your athlete's name to our mailing list

Bethany UMC

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 Summer,
The Austin Starlings Coaching Team.
