Travel Teams

STARS VOLLEYBALL

Our mission is to provide a life-changing sports experience for the athlete and their family. We will strive to do that through authentic relationships, intentional communication, a growth mindset, and the pursuit of excellence. 

Success

Last year our 60 travel teams across the Upstate of SC and Savannah won over 1000 matches and collectively we won over 60% of our matches (from our 12 local team to our top 18's team).  We had multiple teams win close to 80% of their matches.  Our teams, from the Local level to the Open level, are competitive in their tournament schedules. Our top 2-3 teams are extremely competitive in the state as well as nationally. This season we had 60 tournament championships by 24 different teams!  

Coaches

We believe we have one of the best coaching staffs in the southeast! All of our coaches have either played collegiate volleyball, coached collegiate volleyball, or been a middle school or high school coach. 

Tournament Schedule

We are the only club in South Carolina that has been Nationally Ranked over the last five years. Because of that, we have been invited to the most competitive tournaments in the country (like the Triple Crown NIT). We also have received bids for our 1st AND 2nd teams to compete in tournaments like "The Beast of the Southeast".   We also compete in more tournaments than most clubs.  We want our athletes to train and to compete as often as possible.

How it began in Columbia

Over the last decade, Upward Stars and Magnum Volleyball have worked together in forming and running the SAVL.  In addition to the SAVL, friendships among Eric, David, Ben, Monica and Corey were  further developed and a vision for what could be was formed.  

Together, we realized we have an unique opportunity to have our staffs work  together to raise the level of volleyball even more in South Carolina. This season presents the opportunity to make the vision a reality.

Our Upward Stars teams in the Columbia area will continue to build upon all the work that has already taken place and we are committed to make the experience even better for all the families and athletes involved.
