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.

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

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.
