Queen City

Queen City Starlings Welcomes You!

Queen City Starlings is a non-profit volleyball program that offers all athletes the opportunity to play at the club level. Volleyball in the Charlotte, North Carolina area is very competitive. Our focus is to give underrepresented athletes  the chance to compete.  Junior club volleyball dues continue to increase, reducing the ability of economically challenged athletes to be able to participate.  Starlings club dues are  dramatically minimized to offer the opportunity to athletes from ALL communities. We play at the same competitive level and at the same tournaments as other local clubs.

We invite volleyball players from the Charlotte, North Carolina Metrolina area and surrounding counties (e.g., Mecklenburg, Union, Cabarrus, Gaston, Lincoln, Iredell, York, Lancaster).

Interested in Joining Our Team?

Queen City Starlings is developing great talent and we are looking to grow! If you are interested, please reach us via email,  Queen City Starlings will be in competing in volleyball tournaments throughout the southeastern region. These regional tournaments are organized and sanctioned by the USAV/AAU/JVA governing bodies.

Queen City Gets Its First College Recruit

Arliya Bennerman

Queen City Starlings is excited to have its first college recruit, Arliya Bennerman! Arliya played two seasons with QCS in the Setter, RS, and MH positions. She worked hard and was willing to be a versatile player wherever her coach needed her. Arliya set her sights high when she joined QCS and her hard work paid off. She is now on the roster at Livingstone College as a Right-side Hitter. We are so proud! Congratulations to Arliya and her family. She's not far from the Queen City so if you get a chance, go out an support her at one of the games at Livingstone.
