Kapiti Volleyball Club (KVC) was established in 2007 to bring the sport of volleyball to the Kapiti Coast. Although the local colleges have volleyball teams, prior to KVC there was no organised volleyball in Kapiti for adults and other students. The club founders have all played volleyball at various levels in other regions, and have brought that experience to Kapiti to encourage the sport to grow here.

The club's focus is on having fun. Participation at all levels and in all facets of the game is encouraged. Skills both on and off the court (including refereeing) can be developed in a relaxed atmosphere.

All money raised by the club through registrations and playing fees is used for purchasing equipment, prizes, gym hire, administration costs, etc. Kapiti Volleyball Club is a non-profit organisation and none of its officials are paid.
