Cajun Elite Volleyball Club was originally started in 2008. In its first season, Cajun Elite Volleyball club served 37 members on 4 teams. Now Cajun Elite Volleyball club is much larger than the size of the original version. Offering teams in age groups 10 & Under throughout 18, Cajun Elite has become one of the larger clubs in the Acadiana area aimed at meeting the needs of the various levels of volleyball athletes.
Cajun Elite Volleyball Club is one of a very small number of clubs that promotes all of the goals set forth by USA Volleyball. Most clubs are geared either for elite athletes, or for less skilled players. Many of our athletes have played on collegiate teams. Many have also been named All-District, and All-State. On the other hand, many of our players enrolled are just trying to make their school's team. Our Training Academy allows players of all skill levels to learn, improve, and progress at a pace they can achieve.
