Elite Volleyball Training Center was founded in 2007 by current club co-directors and husband/wife team, Randy and Jackie Cline. The club started with only 10 girls and quickly grew from one team to three teams, then to 46 teams today spanning over two locations in Columbus, Ohio. The club strives to encourage and prepare young people to reach their highest potential in athletics and in life. Whether an athlete calls themself a volleyball player or a multi-sport athlete, he or she is always welcome at EliteVBTC.
EliteVBTC Offers a wide range of services to reach athletes and families of all levels and experiences. This includes but is not limited to: Club Volleyball Teams, In-House Leagues, Year Round Beach Training, Hybrid Beach Training, Strength and Conditioning Training, Clinics, Camps, Small Group Sessions and Private Lessons.
The list of services allow a family to decide what volleyball training fits best for their family’s schedule. An athlete can participate in club volleyball, which includes 3 or more days of training along with travel to tournaments that may even be out of state, or she can participate in an In-House League that requires no travel at all. Either way, the athlete is in good hands with the EliteVBTC staff who focus on preparing each athlete for the next level of the game of volleyball.
Through their summer, Fall and Winter In-House Leagues, EliteVBTC has 450 participants in 2nd through 9th grade split by grade level. They use scoring and rule modifications in the 2nd-4th grade level to keep athletes engaged, motivated and having fun. Each week they form teams, play four minute games with the goal to get as many points as possible through scoring and rule modifications, then teams rotate to the next court and play again after reporting their scores. There is a leadership so teams can see where they stand each week. This model has been super successful and has allowed them to grow at the next age groups (5-6th grade league and 7-9th grade league).
Elite’s coaching staff represents experience at all levels, including collegiate and professional playing experience, club coaching experience, and collegiate coaching experience. Co-Director, Jackie Cline, played for The Ohio State University from 2002-2005 where the team made multiple NCAA Tournament appearances including the Sweet Sixteen in 2002 and the Elite Eight in 2004. Randy started his athletic adventures in baseball…
