The recent arrival of United Volleyball Club to Los Cab Sports Village will provide the large base of young players in the Huntington Beach/Fountain Valley area a premier base to hone their talent close to home. Open to boys and girls ages 5 to 17, UVC is currently offering open gyms on Sundays and youth leagues and training on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Tryouts for the upcoming club season will be held August 3-4.
“The youth leagues have been wonderful,” said Evren Tanriverdi, the Founder and Director of the United Volleyball Club. “We are already forming some really great younger teams for our future at Los Cab.”
UVC offers indoor and sand coaching and training. It also offers access to youth leagues for players ages 5 through 12 and team club play in the Southern California Volleyball Association for those ages 13 through 17. What makes the UVC different from many volleyball clubs, Tanriverdi said, is that teaching is the top priority.
“It’s not a club that takes care of its top teams only or filled with high school coaches pressing players to join the club they represent,” he said. “We are different in that sense. Our coaches love and prioritize coaching and what it means to be leaders.”
Tanriverdi said he couldn’t be more pleased to be at Los Cab since that was where he began coaching club volleyball.
“Los Cab has it all,” he said. “My roots and involvement earning multiple open national championships with club teams all started at Los Cab. We built an untouchable club in OC because of all the resources Los Cab has to offer. It will be great to see the progress over the next 5-10 years and we are happy to be able to reach out to the many new young players with ambitions to further their volleyball careers beyond high school. “
