Volleyball Foundation

Scholarship Program

At Oregon Premier Volleyball Club, our non-profit scholarship program is committed to breaking down financial barriers and providing every player with the chance to play the game they love. We are proud to promote volleyball in our community and ensure that every player has access to the sport. Apply now to see how we can help your player succeed.

Our two scholarships are:

Brian Kroll Scholarship

Named after a player's father who passed away from cancer, this a touching tribute to his memory. It's a heartwarming way we can carry on Brian's dedication to his family and impact players pursuing their dreams. By honoring Brian's legacy in this way, we hope to continue making a positive difference in the world and inspiring others to do the same. See award amounts for details.
