Serve City Volleyball began in 2013 as an affordable Chicago club with a mission to make the sport accessible to as many working and middle-class families as possible. In 2015, they expanded to the western suburbs and they now have a mix of 16 national, regional and short-season-level teams from U12 to U18.
The club prides itself on developing athletes both on and off the court. They push their players to the next level athletically while fostering a space that builds character, leadership and life skills. Everything they do is based on their core values of Excellence, Relationships and Love for the Game.
One of the most unique aspects of the club is the commitment to their organization, Serve City Serves. This club-wide initiative fosters a philanthropic mindset in athletes and their families with service opportunities throughout the year. In the 2018-2019 season, their teams put in 50 hours of community service to impact lives locally and internationally. With Feed My Starving Children, the teams packed over 40,000 meals to feed malnourished kids in Third World countries. The club also encourages random acts of kindness throughout the season that impact military personnel, teachers and peers.
Teams work together during community outreach Serve City Volleyball players will leave each season with an appreciation for the sport and the people around them. The club’s commitment not only to the accessibility of athletics but also community outreach and service makes the club unique in its mission to truly develop good players and good people.
