About Us

Team Elite St. Louis Volleyball Club is an elite junior girls volleyball club.  We have competitive teams in the U10 to U18 age groups participating in the Gateway Region of USA Volleyball.  We also have several other youth programs.  Our club home is the TESL Center, which is located in South County, approximately 12 miles from downtown St. Louis.  

TESL strives to field the most competitive teams on a local, regional, and national level.  We build college recruit-able athletes and provide expansive exposure to college coaches for our players.  Our goal is to be competitive nationally.  We are dedicated to not only teaching the great sport of volleyball to our young student athletes, but also to building character & self-esteem, teaching respect, and learning life lessons along the way.  We strive to be recognized as one of the best-run clubs in the country.

Our age groups have at least two teams, with around 200 players across the club's competitive teams.  Each year, these teams compete for qualification bids to the USAV Girls Junior National Championships.
