Club volleyball starts as early as 10U (9-10 year olds) and goes through 18U (high school seniors). In comparasion, Lanier’s Club Program has a much more extensive season and higher level of competition than our Youth Programs.
It is our firm belief that enrolling your daughter in our club will give her the edge she needs to succeed in volleyball in the future. Participation in club volleyball gives athletes another 100-200 hours of practice, tournament and physical training time each year. During such a time period many players, especially young players, see significant growth. Further, club volleyball gives its athletes opportunities to learn lessons that extend far beyond the court. Players are given opportunities to meet, learn to cooperate with and make new friends.
Club Volleyball Teams offer many advantages to athletes and, while each athlete’s club volleyball experience may differ, participation can help meet several common goals:
5-6 months for most teams. Most of our teams compete and practice on a regional schedule culminating in the Regional Championship Tournament in late April. Some of our more elite teams may compete on a semi-national schedule and may play through Nationals in late June. Teams are made aware up front how long their schedule will go.
For 14U & younger, club season begins with tryouts in mid-October.
For 15U and older, club season begins with tryouts in late October/ early November.
We will make every effort to train you in the position you play at school, and most often, at a position you tryout for. However, at times a team’s dynamic requires that we unexpectedly train you at a secondary or new position. You should be willing to play any reasonable position. If a coach forsees you at a different position that that which you tried out for, you will be made aware of these intentions prior to commitment night whenever possible. Your position is not guaranteed, only your place offered on the team.
Our playing time philosophy is equal practice time, “fair” playing time. For our club volleyball teams, Lanier Volleyball Club does not guarantee equal playing time at tournaments. Every Lanier Volleyball Club athlete receives equal and ample opportunity to learn, grow and prove themselves in practice. We guarantee “fair” playing time for each player, taking into consideration skill level, attitude, attendance, commitment, position, and performance in practice.
The exception to this is on our 11U & 12U teams on which a more balanced playing time approach is used. A complete equality of playing time is not guaranteed due to many factors, but balancing player development and competitiveness is our priority for these age groups.
Lanier Volleyball Club attempts to provide the highest quality training for the lowest possible cost. All club fees cover coaching fees, gym costs, region registration fees, tournament registration fees, and uniform expenses and administrative expenses, but do not include any travel expenses (food, transportation, or lodging) associated with tournaments. You can expect the total club fee to be between $1200-1600, depending on the age group, level of the team, number of teams total, the tournaments attended, and the number of girls on the team. We will make every effort to keep costs as low as possible, and cost per team may vary depending on which tournaments the team decides to attend. We believe that cost should never be a factor in whether or not an athlete can participate in our program, so please contact us if you have concerns – we would love to work with you! For more cost specifics, please contact us for detailed information – firstname.lastname@example.org
Please see our Teams & Facilities tab for pratice facility addresses. Practice times and locations will be chosen each season based on the needs of the coaches as well as gym availability.
