Gold Team Program

Overview
The goal of GOLD teams is to provide a team setting for the intermediate to advanced level player with more specific team training and individual development. Playing time may not be equal in all league games, but each player will play in each league match each weekend.

The Gold Level will require tryouts and only the best players will be selected for teams. Most teams will probably practice and play games at the same or similar times per age group.

Teams will practice Mondays & Wednesdays each week and compete in a series of local league competitions or mini tournaments on the weekends over a span of 6-9 weeks, depending on the season. The weekend volleyball matches are designed to provide a fun and competitive environment with no out of town traveling. Having games played locally will not only give all players great practice and competition, but also save time and money on travel, and allow the players (and their families) to participate in other sports or activities on the weekends.

Tryouts

We understand that some players may have to miss part or all of tryouts due to other commitments. Though it it preferred that players do their best to attend both tryouts, they will not be penalized if they cannot attend one or both days. If the player must miss tryouts, please reach out to [email protected] to discuss other options, if any. Tryouts are closed to spectators.

If you do not make a Gold Level Team, you will automatically be placed on a Silver Level Team.
