What is Club SyrV?

Club SyrV Mission Satement
Club SyrV (pronounced “serve”) has a mission to provide a place for elite volleyball athletes from Central New York to develop their talent and compete at the highest level possible, while preparing to play at the collegiate, national and international levels.  Club director, Kathy Patton Gedney and club coordinator, Karl Caputo, founded Club SyrV in 2009.  In it's first nine seasons, Club SyrV has grown to include as many as 17 teams with players from over thirty different school districts. 2019 should see competitive travel teams at every level of our girls program with as many as 19 teams this year including: Girls 18U(one), 17U(one), 16U(two), 15U(two), 14U(two) 13U(two) and 12U (three or more teams and they are coed). We will also host the most competitive boys volleyball program in CNY with our 14U, 16U and 18U teams. Our coaching staff continues to be made up of the most passionate and knowledgeable coaches in Central New York, most of whom have competed at the collegiate level and some who have competed at the professional level.

What's new?
  • Most teams will have a Sunday practice. This is especially convenient for players involved with "in season" high school sports in the winter and spring.
  • We have added more teams and coaches (again!) to offer the best volleyball experience in CNY to even more players and parents.
  • Coaches using Google calendar will include the focus/objectives for each practice so parents can ask their son or daughter what was learned at practice today and get a response more detailed than, "Nothing."
  • Most Club SyrV coaches are now 1st aid and CPR certified in addition to being IMPACT certified.


We have the best coaches, top to bottom, in Central New York - Almost all of our coaches have played at the collegiate level or beyond. They know what it takes to take players to the next level. All of our coaches are certified with USA Volleyball, most are First Aid and CPR certified, and the majority have additional coaching certifications. To read more about our coaches, click here.
A consistent philosophy for all of our teams, players, and coaches - Practices and tournaments are competitive and positive. Expectations are consistently high for all players and coaches. Club SyrV volleyball teams are known for being aggressive, loud and fun!
Steady, consistent growth - Due to consistently positive experiences, Club SyrV has been able to add at least one team every year of its existence. This will be our 10th season and we plan to have as many as fifteen teams. 
Open tryouts - There is no preferential treatment for players based on who they know or where they attend school. The best players make our teams every year, no questions asked. This policy has lead to the success and growth of Club SyrV. As evidence, athletes from over 30 different school districts have played for Club SyrV in our first 9 seasons and Club SyrV finished in the top 3 at Regionals in EVERY age division. For tryout information click here.
Two practices weekly plus potential bonus practices - After tryouts, at the conclusion of the high school season, all of our teams will practice twice per week (except 14U boys and possibly a 13U girls team) throughout the season. Due to our use of school facilities for practices, we are at the mercy of those schools' schedules. This means days in which school does not occur there will not be practice - including any Sunday that is after a Friday in which there is not school. If available, coaches from various Club SyrV teams will take turns helping players from all Club SyrV teams at some position specific practices. The season will conclude at the beginning of May at the Regional Championships. Some teams may choose to extend their season to attend Nationals or another high level tournament if their team is willing to fund raise to cover the additional expenses.
Sweet uniforms - Club SyrV players sport the highest quality and best looking uniforms around. Bottom line, we play hard and we look good at the same time, all the time.
Yearly surveys - We ask for anonymous feedback from all parents and players at the conclusion of each season. This allows us to ensure the best club experience in Central New York.
Super Cool Website and Credit Card Payments - Our website makes it easy and convenient to pay registration fees with Visa or MasterCard. It is also easier than ever to to stay on top of what's new with Club SyrV. Our social media outlets allow members of our Club SyrV family to share their great experiences on and off the court.  Follow us on Twitter and "Like" us on Facebook.
