  • Expanded 19 week season, starting in mid-October and finishing in mid-March before high school tryouts

  • Elite coaching staff, including proven boys high school and club coaches and former Division I and pro players

  • Focus on fundamentals and individual technique in team practice, in addition to competitive 6 v. 6 team play

U15 Team Program

Our U15 Team will practice 2x/week in our gym for an expanded 19 week season and play a modified tournament schedule, with three regional 1-day tournaments. This program is perfect for multi-sport athletes who are looking to try club volleyball, with less of a commitment than the U16-U18 level teams.

Tournament Dates: TBD

Projected Number of Teams: One U15 Team 

Program Cost: TBD​*

Head Coach: Will be announced at tryouts

*Does not include Nationals postseason practice and tournament entry fees.

U16 - U18 Team Program

Our U16-U18 teams will practice 3x/week in our gym for an expanded 19-week season, including one Compete Day on the weekends. In addition, these teams will have a volleyball-specific strength and conditioning program in partnership with Upper Deck Fitness, which will include 2 weekly workouts (one of these will be a team lift in our onsite weight room). These teams will play a competitive tournament schedule and attend at least one qualifier. Team rosters will be kept small to increase each athlete's game experience, so this program requires the highest level of commitment.

Tournament Dates: TBD

Projected Number of Teams: 1 Team at each Age Group (U16, U17, & U18) 

Program Cost: TBD​*

Head Coach: Will be announced at tryouts
