In the later summer of 2002, Armond J. Ball (Arnie Ball) gathered a group of fans and friends to present his idea of such a club for IPFW. A board of volunteers was formed and met each month to plan social events and support the men's and women's volleball teams at IPFW. In February of 2003 there were 91 members. In June of 2003 officers were officially elected who serve as board members for the following year. Beverly Saalfrank was one of the campus leaders in this initiative.
