Empire Volleyball Club Programs Temporarily Suspended

Empire Volleyball Club has suspended all clinics including both October 13th (Empire Juniors) and October 15th clinics at Sonoma State along with both Empire Juniors Programs in Sonoma and Petaluma on Sunday.

We are aware that there are many Empire families impacted. If you are one of the families who has lost a home, we want to hear from you. We want to know how best we can assist you in your time of need. 

On Friday, Oct. 20th (Empire Juniors), and Sunday, Oct. 22nd when we resume clinics, we are holding a clothing drive, and we are asking for families who can donate to bring clothes, and any unused or "gently used" volleyball equipment to the event. We have a number of families that have been impacted. The call has gone out to multiple volleyball clubs and universities all over the country to send items as well, with items coming from as far away as Hawaii and New York.    

Please contact Head Coach Daryl Kapis at, or call/text at (408) 332-5495 to tell us how we can assist you in your time of need and how we can get items to you.
