The S.A. Chiefs Volleyball Club was established in 2012. I formed a 15's team with a mixture of schools and we quickly made a name for ourselves on the club circuit - winning numerous tournaments and gaining recognition as a team that was not to be taken lightly. The following season, our 15's team would lose and gain a couple of girls to form a 16's team. We continued to impress, not only ourselves but other clubs and parents taking our success to even greater heights. We would win numerous tournaments, including competing in a 17's and 18's tournaments with first-place finishes. We would also try competing in both seasons for chances at bids to Nationals but we fell short, which only put things in perspective for our athletes.
For reasons out of my control, our Chiefs would not come back with a 17's team and my Chief's would play with different clubs but staying students of the game. I decided to take a break from the club life and be a parent supporting my daughter, Sommer. She would play 17's and 18's with me as her biggest supporter and she would soon gain the eye of a Division I Coach. Her senior year would soon prove that the years of volleyball and club would pay off! She would be one of three other San Antonio seniors to sign their college volleyball commitment papers to play and attend Prairie View A&M in Prairie View, Texas.
Shortly after, my family would be blessed with another daughter, Izabella, which would require more time on the sidelines.
With a few seasons off, I decided that I was ready to bring my Chiefs back on to the club set!! I was soon recruiting for a second generation of Chief's and found some athletes and families willing to give my club a chance. My Chief's would start up again in the 2018-2019 season! We continued into the 2019-2020 season with two teams: 12's for beginner but eager-to-learn girls, and an experienced and determined 17's team of young ladies. Today we start the 2020-2021 season with a solo 18's team, still remaining true to our mission of being a small club but a BIG FAMILY vibe always ready to develop the games and lives of eager, aggressive, and passionate volleyball-ers!!
