About Us

Carolina One Volleyball: One Club, One Goal

Carolina One Volleyball is a locally owned, 501(c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated to promoting volleyball in the Upstate of South Carolina. We are the longest running volleyball club in the Greenville and Pickens areas of South Carolina.

Visit our Programs page to learn more about the year-round volleyball programs we offer.

Our club was founded in 2007 with 3 teams practicing out of local Greenville schools and recreation centers with the goal of providing athletes a place to play and improve their skills within the local area. Since then, we have grown to over 25 teams with two home gyms - one in Greenville and one in Pickens.

Carolina One is committed to improving the level of volleyball in the state of South Carolina. Our slogan is "One club, One goal." We are striving to unite a dedicated group of coaches, players, and parents whose single goal it is to raise the level of volleyball in the Upstate and South Carolina, while at the same time developing young women as people, students, and athletes.
