Staff Report for The Island Connection
Palmetto Strikers Volleyball Club,a nonprofit volleyball club founded in 2015 is planning to move into a 15,000-square-foot volleyball facility.
The new facility will be located on Johnnie Dodds Blvd, with easy access from 17N, 526 and I-26. It is expected to open by December and will have four indoor volleyball courts.
Due to the popularity of juniors’ travel volleyball in the low country, PSVC plans to expand their programming.
“Having our own facility will allow us to house more teams, offer year-round player development clinics, camps and private lessons, giving athletes the opportunity to improve, compete, and grow.” Teams at all age levels 11 through 18, will be added in 2018, said Janine Mabe, Club Director for PSVC.
She added that the programs PSVC plans to add will be designed for the entire community such as open gyms, seated volleyball for players with physical disabilities, and a league for adults.
“We’ve been growing rapidly,” said Patrick Huber, Club President. This year tryout attendance doubled from 2016, as did the number of teams. PSVC is prepared to field 20 travel teams in 2018, a 45% increase over 2017. “The opening of our facility positions us to keep up with demand and with the only four court facility that is conditioned for the summer and winter months, we can operate year round,” said Huber. “This space will allow us to continue to focus on our mission of bringing the sport to all kids, regardless of their physical condition, or financial circumstances,” Huber added.
