Sláinte is an Irish word meaning “health” and is pronounced “SLAWN-cha.” As a salute, it means “Cheers!” or “To your health!"
Sláinte Volleyball Club was founded in 2001 by Nga Tran and Margi Beima with just one girls power team. Over the following five years, Slainte grew to 3 teams and then 5, 8, 13 and 18 teams. Currently, Slainte has more than 20 girls teams and 4 to 6 boys teams annually.
In 2017 Sláinte Ryan Fickenscher joined as a director to help guide the burgeoning interest in the club.
