History

Blue Hen VBC started as Delaware Volleyball United in 2005 & 2006 running grass doubles volleyball training for middle and high school volleyball players.  


In the summer of 2009, Delaware Volleyball United reformed as Blue Hen VBC and ran a small but specialized setter camp.  


Fall 2009 saw the addition of two adult men's teams, The Procrastinators, and the Black N Blue Hens. These two teams were made up of some of the best men's players in Delaware.  


The Blue Hen Setter School expanded to thirty hours of "elite" training in 2010 and has offered both intermediate and elite levels since 2011.  Coaches include former college standouts Gabi Hilk, Kate Grasso, Lizzy Kuhn and James Phillips, as well as two time CAA setter of the year Jessica Chason from the University of Delaware.   


Summer 2011 also saw the addition of the Blue Hen outdoor grass doubles series on the fields at Siegel JCC in Wilmington.  This outdoor series moved to Alapocas Run Park in 2012 & 2013.  Blue Hen outdoor doubles moved back to Siegel JCC when they added three of the regions premier sand court and the JCC is the current host site for all Blue Hen sand and grass tournaments.  


In the winter 2011-12, men's indoor sixes tournaments were added at The Tatnall School in Wilmington, DE.  These tourneys continued through the current 2015 season.  Blue Hen VBC's men's team HADOUKEN finished tied for 5th at USAV Open Nationals in Phoenix, AZ in the BB division.  Winter 2015 saw the addition of women's indoor sixes to allow high-level competition for ladies in the area.  HADOUKEN hosted annual Nationals warm-up events in 2014, 2015 and 2016 with AA and Open level teams competing right here in the First state.  


Winter 2012-13 brought the addition of a 17 and under short season junior girls travel team.  In 2013-14, Blue Hen VBC added a 16 and under team and a 13 under developmental squad.  In the 2014-15 season, a 14 and under short season travel team was added.  


Summer of 2014, Blue Hen added an elite attacking camp to pair with our setter training.  This was staffed by local legend Francis Dallatore and has run to the present.
