  • Booster Participation
    Unlike other high schools, Bellaire Volleyball does NOT require players to pay an athletic participation fee to cover the program costs not paid for by HISD.  Many public high school athletic departments require participation fee as high as $200 to offset 100% of the additional costs to play high school volleyball.  We recognize not all players can afford to participate if Bellaire were to assess such a fee.

    Therefore, all players and families are asked to fundraise and participate in the Boosters.  This approach enables Bellaire Volleyball to pay for the additional expenses not covered by HISD while providing a great volleyball experience and remaining compliant with UIL eligibility rules.
    Participation in the Booster Club is set at the minimal level of $75.  This minimal amount is 100% passthrough cost of providing players food and snacks at away competitions and the annual banquet. 

    Under UIL rules, players can not be given anything of value to participate in athletics; this includes food.  The $75 booster participation fee is the minimum amount needed to cover the cost of food provided  sandwiches, water, snacks provided to players while traveling to away venues and tournaments.  Participating in the Boosters enables Bellaire to remain compliant with UIL rules.

    Complete this FORM and provide your payment to any Booster Club Member, Coach Clarke or mail both the form a payment to Bellaire Volleyball, P.O. Box 2415, Bellaire TX 77402.  Checks should be made out to "BHS Volleyball Booster Club."

  • Donations

    Please Donate

    Unlike other high schools, Bellaire High does NOT asked for participation fee to play on a volleyball team.  To cover costs, many public high school athletic departments require a participation fee; sometimes reaching $200 per player.  We recognize not all players can afford to participate on the volleyball team if Bellaire were to require a participation fee which offset 100% of the expenses not covered by HISD.

    Through generous support of volunteers and supporter donations, Bellaire High School’s volleyball has become the most successful volleyball program the Houston Independent School District; winning district in 14 of the last 15 years and representing HISD in the state playoffs every year since 1990.  Head Coach, Ap Clarke has exceeded 800 career wins, and recently celebrating her 500th win at Bellaire High School.  She has been named “Coach of the Year” in HISD 13 times. 

    This level of success could not be achieved without the generous donations. Please consider making a donation?  

    Any amount will help.

  • Spring Branch Tournament
    The Lady Cardinals performed very well last week in the Spring Branch ISD volleyball tournament; winning fourth place.  

    Thursday, Bellaire finished second in their pool with a win over Hightower and close lost to Tomball Memorial.  On Friday, Bellaire defeated Kingwood (25-22, 18-25, 25- 21) in an exciting first round bracket match.  The following day, Saturday, Bellaire continued bracket play with a huge win over Cy-Fair (25-20 ,21-5, 25-22).  With the win, the Lady Cardinals were headed to the semi-finals for the second year in a row.  Then, as luck would have it, the injury bug bit the Lady Cards.  With several key players on the sidelines, Bellaire yielded to the eventual tournament champion Klein (22-25, 18-25).  In the consolation match against College Park, Bellaire played a 6-2 system enabling every player able to play get on the court.  The tournament was a great opportunity to develop younger players and challenge the more experienced players.

    After the tournament, Ap Clark said "It was another great experience at the Spring Branch ISD Volleyball tournament."

    Megan Evans was named to the All-tournament team.  This is Megan's second time to receive honors from the Spring Branch Tournament, as she was named Most Valuable Setter in 2015.

    Congratulations Megan!
