Pocatello Elite Volleyball
Pocatello Elite is a USA sanctioned volleyball club that helps young girls throughout southeastern Idaho develop in volleyball and reach their full potential. Many girls play the game to make friends, develop confidence, and gain physical strength. Pocatello Elite’s power teams give girls the opportunity to travel to tournaments that will potentially aide their college recruitment possibilities. Our goal is provide these girls with opportunities to get recognized in their volleyball talents.
Pocatello Elite enters its 10th year in club volleyball; however, Tawna Ellis volleyball experience has been in Southeastern Idaho for over 25 years. The intention was and still is the same; to provide a club experience for volleyball players across southeastern Idaho that is not attached directly to one school, but to the entire area. By leaving their high school and middle school teams girls are able to experience a much higher level of volleyball.
