Western Kansas Elite was founded November 2007 by Shannon Funk. The initial goal of the club was to give all volleyball players a fair opportunity to be on a traveling team through tryouts with no outside social influences. The club has expanded the objective to include recruiting opportunities, area youth development and offering a high level of competition.

Our first season began with only one 13s team.

We continued to grow and within only 2 short years, we were offering several teams at almost every age level from 12-18.

In 2015 we attended 3 national qualifier tournaments and we intend to continue that every year.

The club has been supported by Hays Recreation, USD 489 and TMP by allowing us to utilize their gym facilities for practices.
