Xceleration's club owner, Jon Segall began the club in 2005. He started the club to give volleyball players in the area a competitive club in which to participate. Each year our club has enjoyed great success, growing in the number of participants and competitiveness of our teams.
Is Xceleration VBC a place where only college bound athletes compete? Absolutely not! Learning a lifelong sport, making friends from a host of different schools, and having fun are often the reasons a young girl will get into volleyball. While we are proud of the girls who have gone on to play at the intercollegiate level, we are equally proud of the girls who have simply learned the enjoyment of playing a game that they can carry with them into the future. We strive to develop the athlete not only as a player but also as a person, learning life long skills such as teamwork and interpersonal skills, the ability to handle pressure situations and to effectively use goal setting to accomplish anything.
We offer competitive teams that compete regionally and nationally in a season that runs from December through early July. We also offer a training schedule involving clinics and private lessons that runs from mid July through October. Our practice facilities are located in Oakland and Concord.
Our philosophy is simple and can be summed up in three simple lines:
- Compete because you love to compete.
- Win because you love to win.
- Play because you love the sport.
These three lines are the dominant philosophy of the club. We love volleyball, plain and simple. It is the love of the game that made us want to create a club that reflects the best parts of the sport. The fluidity, the speed, the teamwork, the confidence, the aggressiveness, and the “art” of a game played to perfection. We want our athletes and parents to come to appreciate all aspects of the game of volleyball, and revel in the joy that competition and the pursuit of excellence brings.
