Girls Club Tryouts are November 7-21, 2021 (U12-U15 first, followed by U16-U18). Please read the information below before registering for tryouts to make sure you register for the appropriate program. 

Thank you for attending Open House!

If you missed it, here is the link to the recording.

The goal of Open House is for you to get to know us better while we give you all the information you need to make an informed decision about joining our club this season. This is mandatory for all parents of athletes trying out for Open, Club, and Regional teams. We will cover the following topics during Open House:

  • Who we are and our values

  • What we offer - for Regional, Club, and Open teams

  • The tryout and evaluation process

  • Our partnerships

 For more info, check out the videos from last year’s Open House on our Youtube Channel!

Girls Winter/Spring Team Programs

 

Below is an overview of our​ Girls Club team offerings for the 2021-2022 season, from lowest commitment level to highest commitment level (Regional Teams U12-U18 < Club Teams U12-U17 < Open Teams U14-U18).

Regional U12-U18 Teams (including U14 Boys)

Our Regional team program allows a lot of flexibility for multi-sport athletes and provides more opportunities to play club volleyball at NEVBC. With reduced costs, fewer practices per week, and local competitions/in-house tournaments, our Regional team program is the perfect opportunity for multi-sport athletes, athletes who aren’t able to commit to the rigor of a full Club or Open season, or athletes who weren’t selected for a Club or Open team this year. With 1 OR 2 weekly practices (varies by team) and 5 local tournaments over a 20 week season, the Regional program is sure to help athletes advance their game and make big strides ahead of their following middle school or high school season. Coaches will emphasize building effective training habits and fundamental skills, competing in 6 v. 6 gameplay, and having FUN through training and competition.

New this year, we are offering a Boys U14 Regional program - read more about that here. U12 Boys athletes may also try out for U12 Regional teams but will only be able to attend training sessions as Regional tournaments are not coed.

Athletes who want to play on our Regional teams should NOT attend Open and Club team tryouts, but should instead attend Regional Team Tryouts. Athletes who attend the Regional team tryouts will have a better opportunity to be evaluated and placed on the appropriate Regional team compared to athletes who attend Open/Club tryouts.

Program Pricing:

  • Regional U13-U14 $1,175 (1x weekly practice - weekend days only)

  • Regional U15-U17 $2,175 (2x weekly practices - one weekend and one weekday)

  • No additional uniform or travel fee 

Tournament Schedule:

  • Girls NERVA Series: February 13, March 13, March 27, April 10, & May 1

  • Spikefest in Springfield, MA: February 19-21 (Girls U15-U17 teams only

  • Boys NERVA Series (FOR U14 BOYS ONLY): Jan 1 or 2, Jan 22 or 23, Feb 5 or 6, Feb 19 or 20, & Mar 19 or 20

 

Season Dates:

U12 CLUB Team

With reduced costs and fewer practices per week than our U13-U18 teams, our U12 team program is an ideal stepping stone into club volleyball. This program requires a higher level of commitment than our developmental classes and Fall Club, but it still allows a lot of flexibility for multi-sport athletes. 

 

The U12 Club Team program (Grades 5-6) includes 2 practices per week run by two NEVBC Head Coaches. The team will consist of up to 18 players who will play tournaments in 2 groups, each with their own coach, to maximize playing time opportunities. 

 

Coaches will emphasize building effective training habits, modified gameplay, and having FUN through competition.

 

Program Pricing:

  • $1,875 for the season (2x weekly practices - one weekend and one weekday)

  • No additional uniform or travel fee 

Tournament Schedule: Linked here

Season Dates:

  • early December 2021 - May 30, 2022

U13 - U17 CLUB Teams

The U13-U17 Club Teams for Grades 7-12 includes three (3) practices per week run by a NEVBC Head Coach, as well as two (2) on-court Strength and Conditioning sessions led by an Upper Deck Fitness Lead Coach before practice. 

 

Many athletes from our U16-U17 Club teams are experienced varsity level players or if they are less experienced, they will very likely have strong testing numbers (i.e., height, vertical jump/approach touch). Varsity volleyball experience is not required, especially for our younger club teams (U13-U15), but experience playing on a competitive team (school or club) is crucial. Many athletes from last year's U16 and U17 Club level teams are actively pursuing college volleyball opportunities. Club team athletes will receive the following:

  • Access to Hudl video to supplement their on-court training hours and create highlight videos

  • 2x weekly *on-court* strength & conditioning sessions with Upper Deck Fitness before your team practices 

  • Competitive tournament schedule, including travel within our region

  • 25 week club season (increased from 22 weeks in previous years)

Our Club teams will emphasize building a strong foundation of technical skills, developing high IQ volleyball athletes, and teaching athletes how to compete at a high level. This program requires a high level of commitment, as athletes will be expected to attend 3 practices each week and all tournaments. Our Club teams will usually play in the Club or USA divisions at travel tournaments.

Program Pricing:

  • U13 Club Team: $3,775 for the season 

  • U14-U17 Club Team: $3,975 for the season

  • U18 Club Team: $2,975 for the season (18s will have a shortened 21 week season, ending May 1, 2022)

  • No additional uniform or travel fee 

Roster Size: 10 roster players & 2-3 practice players (attend all team training and workouts but no tournaments)

 

Tournament Schedule: Linked here

Season Dates:

  • U13-U17 Club: early December 2021 - May 30, 2022

  • U18 Club: early December 2021 - May 1, 2022

U14 - U18 OPEN Teams 

These are our highest level teams. The U14-U18 Open Teams for Grades 7-12 includes three (3) practices per week run by a NEVBC Head Coach, as well as one (1) collegiate-level team lift in on our onsite weight room and (1) on-court Strength and Conditioning session, both led by an Upper Deck Fitness Lead Coach.

 

All of our U15-U18 Open athletes (and many of our U14 Open athletes) made their Varsity teams in the fall 2021 high school season. Most athletes in contention for Open teams U16+ are experienced Varsity level players or if they are less experienced, they will likely have impressive physical testing numbers (i.e., height, vertical jump, approach touch). Many athletes from last year's U15-U18 Open teams are actively pursuing college volleyball opportunities or are committed to play in college. Open team athletes will receive the following:

  • Access to Hudl video to supplement their on-court training hours and create highlight videos

  • 3 training sessions per week (2.5 hour team practice / 1.75 hour team practice / 2.25 hour Compete Day)

  • 2x weekly strength & conditioning sessions (one team lift in the weight room and one on-court session) with Upper Deck Fitness before your team practices

  • Highly competitive tournament schedule, including multiple out-of-region qualifiers and events, and competitive tournaments within our region

  • 25 week season (increased from 22 weeks in previous years)

 

This year’s Open Team tournament schedule is far more robust than in past seasons. Open Teams will be traveling out of region on numerous weekends throughout the season, as well as competing in the highest division within our region in order to provide the most exposure to high level competition. Open Team’s rosters will be kept small to increase each athlete's game experience, so this program requires the highest level of commitment.**

Program Pricing:

  • U14 Open Team: $4,875 for the season 

  • U15-U17 Open Team: $5,075 for the season

  • U18 Open Team: $4,275 for the season (18s will have a shortened 21 week season, ending May 1, 2022)

  • No additional uniform or travel fee (except Nationals)

Roster Size: 10 roster players & 2-3 practice players (attend all team training and workouts but no tournaments)

Tournament Schedule: Linked here

Season Dates:

  • U14-U17 Open: early December 2021 - May 30, 2022

  • U18 Open: early December 2021 - May 1, 2022

Postseason/Nationals:

  • We will plan to send all NEVBC Open teams to either USAV Nationals in Indianapolis, IN (June 23 - July 4, 2022) or AAU Nationals in Orlando, FL (June 14 - 26, 2022) if a majority of the team is available. Exact dates of competition for each event varies by age group.

  • Families will be contacted and surveyed about their postseason availability after teams are formed.

  • Going to Nationals will require a small additional fee to cover the coaches' time, team entry fee, and coach travel expenses. We will work hard to keep this fee as low as we can!

**It is extremely challenging for our Club and Open team athletes to play on other travel teams or winter/spring high school sports with the level of commitment expected. It requires a lot of planning, communication, and time management skills. Any athletes who are considering playing a high school winter or spring sport MUST consult with the Club Director before making the commitment to a Club or Open team. The expectation is that club volleyball commitments, especially tournaments, will be prioritized over winter or spring high school sports, and we will require you to meet with your high school coach to ensure your commitment to your NEVBC team can be upheld.
