ABOUT WASHINGTON ELITE
Washington Elite Volleyball Club is committed to being one of the best club experiences available in the Pacific Northwest! Washington Elite Volleyball Club was established in the fall of 2014 to provide an opportunity for young athletes to get outstanding opportunities learning and competing in club volleyball. W.E. (Washington Elite) recognizes that the single most important part of each player’s experience is the life impact that each coach impresses on their athletes. Our goal at Washington Elite is to provide the best possible coaches who live and breathe the Art & Science of teaching and player development. The goal for every practice is to develop skills in a fun and competitive environment.
Coaching Director Sara Todorovich-Ballas is a former starting and record holding middle blocker from Arizona State (Div. 1) and Eastern Washington (Div. 1). Coach Sara Todorovich-Ballas fell in love with coaching after her career-ending shoulder injury at EWU. During her collegiate playing career, Todorovich-Ballas began her volleyball coaching addiction as the Second Assistant at Walla Walla Community College. She then extended her coaching resume to club volleyball with teams such as PAC-V and then Columbia Juniors (her club volleyball Alma Matter). After college, Todorovich-Ballas was immediately hired on at Walla Walla University (NAIA) as the First Assistant Coach and then took
over the program in 2012 as the Head Coach. During that time, she also ran summer volleyball development programs at the local YMCA. Upon moving to the Olympic Peninsula, Coach Todorovich-Ballas started Washington Elite VBC, which is now her pride and joy. In 2016, Todorovich-Ballas took over the Bremerton High School volleyball program and has since seen it flourish.
“Washington Elite helped mentally and physically prepare me for the collegiate volleyball level. WE set the foundation I needed to be successful in college. Coach Sara pushes her athletes to become the players she knows they can be. The coaches at WE do everything they can to help get us to the next level. The sky is the limit if you choose this program! I would go through WE again and again if I could!”
