Odbojkarski klub SIP Šempeter or shortly Šempeter. Šempeter was established in the last century, more than 70 years ago. At the beginning, it only had men’s team (1980s) while later also a women’s team was founded. The good results of the men’s team, which was initially only criteria in recreational leagues, led to significant results, which contributed to the visibility of the club both in Slovenia as well as in the former Republic of Yugoslavia. In the middle of the nineties a female volleyball started to achieve significant results. From 2014. onwards two teams work together with a common president. Legally they are still two separate units but the system and the sponsors are the same for both male and female. Šempeter has always insisted on strong emphasis on education and on engaging young age groups. Several former Yugoslav and later Slovenian representatives in the National Team started their careers in Šempeter. Nowadays, young age groups achieve top positions in national competitions almost every year which puts them at the very top of Slovenian volleyball. Every year, the club brings together more than 200 young age players.
Some of the greatest Šempeter’s results in the last 10 years in younger age groups (MINI Volleyball <11 yrs) in national championships are:
- 2005 – 2nd place
- 2006 – 4th place
- 2008 – 2nd place
- 2012 – 2nd place
- 2015 – 3rd place
