Southern Kentucky Elite Volleyball Academy

Welcome

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!

18 Blue

18 Blue

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!
