Welcome to the Southern Kentucky Elite home page! We are an organization based out of Bowling Green, Ky., dedicated to bringing Elite Volleyball to the Southern Kentucky area. Stay tuned here for more information as it becomes available about clinics being offered, SKEVA Juniors, and an incredible opportunity for young sprouts. We will also keep up to date information on how our competitive travel teams perform throughout the season! For any additional inquiries, contact Caleb Sheffield or Lindsey Sheffield, whose information can be found on the bottom of this page.
Our 12 Blue finished out their season at the Vette City Challenge with a Gold Bracket finish! Congratulations girls!
These girls mean business! Our 18 Blue team has made history for not only the club, but for the Central Kentucky area as the first 18's team around here to earn a bid to the USA Junior Olympic National tournament! The tournament is special in the fact that to play in it, the teams need to WIN a bid to play in it, unlike AAU where you can earn a bid but have the ability to play even if you hadn't. We're so prod of this team and the things they're doing both on and off the court!
The ladies on 16 Blue battled hard in their Mideast Qualifier in Indianapolis to take home a 1st place finish in the Gold Bracket! The represented our club very well!
Here is a quick look at the exciting things happening in the upcoming weeks!

As a part of our mission to improve volleyball in this area, we are also making a point to increase the amount of skilled coaches in this area. With the recent increase in the amount of players playing volleyball, it only makes sense that we need to train additional coaches.
