Mission Statement

PPVBC is dedicated to providing a place for young men and women of the community to learn the game of volleyball. Our philosophy is to create a nurturing environment in which we will build self-esteem while emphasizing teamwork, discipline and the rewards of hard work. We believe that we are not only preparing your children to make their school team but to believe that they can set and attain goals throughout their lives. Volleyball is the vehicle, their successful future is our goal.

History of PPVBC

PPVBC has had a long tradition of success for 30 years! Charlie Stennett started the Club in the Palisades as a means to stay in touch with the game after his playing days in College and the beach came to a close. Active in the community, he started the club with one boys team and its grown over the years with both boys and girls. Teams have competed for National championships at both JO's and Volleyball Festival but molding young athletes into being better young men or women always taking priority. Winning is not what PPVBC is about, we are more interested in mentoring our athletes and teaching them life long skills through the game of volleyball. If we win, that's always nice too! Our coaches will treat your child with respect, teach problem solving and give guidance when needed. Come along for the ride, Go Pali!
