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.

Our mission is to diversity the sport of volleyball by offering athletes from ALL communities an opportunity to play at the club level, regardless of socioeconomic background.

Come join our team! Our focus is to eliminate the politics and concentrate on making the player the best they can be in competitive play. Queen City Starlings may be the place for you.

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