Are you a multi-sport athlete that cannot commit to the demands of a full travel club volleyball schedule? Or is an in-house program at a large club not quite the competitive experience you are looking for? We are excited to offer a shorter season club volleyball experience while still gaining the awesome experience of playing in some of the regions larger volleyball events. Not to mention how amazing our coaching staff is.
ORGANIZATION: We plan to host a 16s and a 14s team this club season. This may change based off of player interest. Players born on or after July 1, 2005 are eligible for the 16s team. Players born on or after July 1, 2007 are eligible for the 14s team. You can view this chart to determine how USA volleyball makes their age definitions. Typically, a 16s team will be made up of 15 and 16 year olds and a 14s team will be made up of 13 and 14 year olds.
TRYOUTS: We will host two tryout sessions and we encourage all participants to do their best to attend both tryouts. Tryouts sessions will take place on Sunday, Dec. 12th and Tuesday, Dec. 14th. Both sessions will run 5:30 – 7 PM. There is a $25 fee to attend tryouts.
TEAM SELECTION: Upon completion of the tryout sessions, we will email selected individuals with an offer to join one of the teams. This process will take place between Dec. 15 and Dec. 23.
CALENDAR: Our season will run from January 2 to February 27. Practices will be held on Sundays at Connecticut College (most likely 5:15-7 PM). Additionally, four positional clinics will be held during a weekday in early January. Practices are not held on weekends that we have competitions.
COMPETITION: We intend to compete on the following weekends and in the following events:
January 22 & 23: USA Volleyball event in Hartford, CT
February 5 & 6: AAU event at Mohegan Sun
February 19 – 21: USA Volleyball event in Springfield, MA
These are large, multi-day events and are a great way to expose players to a wide range of volleyball abilities and experiences. Registration to each event is competitive. We hope to compete in these events but we cannot guarantee it. We will do our best to provide an equivalent experience if we do not get accepted to an event.
PROGRAM FEE: $800. This fee covers your uniform (game jersey & spandex), practice shirt, coaching, facility and equipment, USA Volleyball membership, AAU Volleyball membership and tournament fees. Costs not included in your program are: travel and food during the events outlined above.
