Circle City Volleyball Club

Circle City Parents, Players, & Family –

Due to recent events involving a former coach in the club, we felt it is important to address the issue. As we said in our statement on Thursday, the safety of everyone involved with the club continues to be our top priority. The only information that we have is what has been released in the media. Until the legal process plays out, we don’t expect to have any additional info.

We have had, and will continue to have, a code of conduct in place for all of our coaches. Because we are all members of USA Volleyball, everyone has always been required to do background checks as well. We understand that you may have additional questions or concerns. We feel like it is important to answer questions on an individual basis. If you would like to do so, please reach out to Lance Keating at
