Team Breakdown & Costs

Open Team Program (U15-U18)

Our U15-U18 Open teams will practice 3x/week in our gym for an expanded 20-week season, including one Compete Day on the weekends. Our Open teams will compete in 6-8 multi-day tournament, including 3 USAV qualifier opportunities to earn bids to USAV Nationals for U16-U18 Open (15 Open will attend 1 USAV qualifier). In addition, Open level teams will also take part in a 1x weekly team lifting session in our onsite varsity weight room and 1x weekly on-court group workout, both led by our Northeast S&C Trainers. 

 

This program is designed for athletes that are highly committed to volleyball, and many continue on to play after high school. Team rosters will be kept small to increase each athlete's game experience, so this program requires the highest level of commitment. If you play multiple sports, please work with your coach ahead of the season to ensure you can handle the level of commitment needed to be successful at this level.
