The No Limits Volleyball Club is a different kind of club located in the South Metro, Denver, and Boulder areas. We feature ~20 NVC CLUB teams every year from numerous parts of town, along with our 60+ competitive league teams. We are rapidly expanding to other parts of town, and are on our way to a state, regional and national infrastructure.
No Limits Volleyball Club
"A full-on CLUB (sanctioned by the AAU),
and a refreshing, new way of thinking."
The No Limits Volleyball Club is an affordable and family friendly alternative to USAV clubs. If you are looking for the traditional "club" experience typical of Colorado, then No Limits is not for you. We are an official objection to the way things "have always been done." Our club players get a very unique experience designed to cultivate strong volleyball skills, personal growth, fulfillment, happiness, and a life-long love of the game. Our goal is to teach essential life skills using the context of volleyball...we strive to set players on a path to a well-adjusted adulthood, a healthy attitude toward sports, and an unwavering commitment to sportsmanship. Our club coaches must pass specific criteria, earn numerous certifications, and obtain final board approval. We have a comprehensive coach development program and feature some of the best coaches in the area... School volleyball coaches tell us they notice significant growth in player skills and confidence after participation in the No Limits Volleyball Club.

Traveling to play volleyball causes a significant amount of wasted time AND money that could go to MUCH better causes (such as more study time to raise grades or more family vacations for fun and bonding)!
All of the AAU Mile High Tournaments Series tourneys are scheduled on Saturdays! We do not practice on Saturdays nor Sundays, as we only practice 2 weeknights per week.
We typically host a very large number of teams from many remote areas in Colorado, as well as the surrounding states. For our first two seasons, these tournaments featured teams from all over the region, including Wyoming, Arizona, New Mexico, South Dakota, Nebraska, Texas, New York...and we expect numbers to significantly increase from there in year 3!
We hire professional officials to referee all of our tournament games. Referees keep track of score, as well. For this coming season, we will assign line-judging to teams, but that's it! When you have CVOA professional referees officiate your tournament, it creates a higher level of play all around, consistency throughout the day, and a huge sense of relief among players and coaches that they are not responsible for the stressful calling of games!
We believe in a high quality of life. And, when you are young and impressionable, time at home and with family is paramount. Young, developing kids should not spend more time with their coaches than their parents!
Our elite high caliber coaching TURNS players into stars, we do not try to make our club look good by finding kids who are already dominant! We are in this to create good players, not gather the best players around so that we can win at all costs!
Our TOTAL pricing for an entire season comes in just over $1,500 per player! What makes us the true low-cost leader is there are NO ADDITIONAL travel expenses added onto this. Travel expenses can reach upwards to $10,000 at other clubs.
"Thanks for all you guys do to make this program a rewarding one. While this is our first season of club we've been in the league for several years and have enjoyed nearly every minute of it. I know it’s a lot of work, and you guys do a great job! J"
—Raina B, Castle Rock
"We have a first-time club player, and we feel as though there is very little pressure...it is more about teaching the skills and learning to enjoy the sport--and what the sport requires of a player."
"My daughter played volleyball last winter at your club and loved it! Thank you sooooo much! My daughter is very happy with Coach Gia!"
—Christen O, Lone Tree
"No Limits is a GOOD club! My daughter is very happy! Please have our coach back!"
"You two ROCK!! All of your hard work is the only reason we let our daughter play this game at the club level! I have heard about other organizations who are not nearly as dedicated to the GIRLS, as you continually show. Thank you for all you do!"
—Gretchen W, Centennial
"This is a really fine program! We have really enjoyed the number of games, tourneys, and practices the program offers. It is just what we needed for our daughter!"
"Thank you for all of your hard work in providing an affordable alternative to club volleyball. My daughter is enjoying her team and her coach. Our experience has been GREAT!"
—Barbara R, Elizabeth
“My daughter made her middle school volleyball ‘A’ team along with many club girls. Thank you Dee Ann and Tim Arey for being fabulous coaches! South Metro rocks!”
–Lynne D, Highlands Ranch
"I don’t know that our club experience is much different from others that are not ruthlessly competitive. I get so upset just thinking about spending 10 hours in a gym with all those people who really don’t care about you.”
—Susan H, Parker
"Our daughter just spent 2 days trying out for her high school volleyball teams. She will be a freshman NEXT year, and she made the JV team for the summer! We cannot thank you enough!!! She is so excited! She did not even make a summer team last year, but thanks to you and her coach... she learned so much, and her skills improved way beyond what we expected! This is a MUST-DO club!!!"
—Melinda P, Littleton
"Our club coach is a wonderful coach. He knows how to motivate the girls and has taught them so much. Their progress has been amazing! Clone him!"
"Our coach does an amazing job with the girls. He helps each one individually, and as a team, to improve their skills."
"We like the positive coaching philosophy. Our coach is very organized, and good at communicating with the parents and players. He also brings a very positive and encouraging tone to the team/players and is very effective at instructing/teaching."
"The coach works with the girls to correct what needs to be improved, and he is very positive and encouraging."
"My daughter loves your team and your coaching! Before she left last night, she was grumbling about volleyball…and, when she got home she was ecstatic! Thanks for being such a great coach!"
—Alexandra W, Centennial
"Our club coach is upbeat and fun, but the girls are learning too. The learning enviroment is fun, but not so strict."
"Coach Scott has a passion for the sport. He is well organized, very open in his communication, and easily accessible for parents and players. He encourages all his players, but really seems to challenge those that demonstrate an ability and willingness to learn."
"Our coach is very organized in terms of practices. He runs good drills all the time, and this session has been fantastic! I loved it, and so did my daughter!"
"I like most that our coach reevaluates and modifies how he wants to team to position and play. He doesn't stick with something that isn't working. He'll try something else to see if the players are able to execute better. He also likes to explain his strategies to the parents."
