Players who qualify for our Level IV program have an advanced skill set and will typically have 4-5+ years organized playing experience with at least 3+ years of club ball. Advanced level players are typically top level national team club players with an interest in pursuing a collegiate career. College camps, round robin play opportunities, and advanced positional training are programs of interest for this group.
Players who qualify for our Level III program should have a minimum of 3-5 years organized playing experience with at least 2-3 years of club ball. These players are seeking to grow their skill set to achieve our Level IV advanced training level. Making their school varsity team or top level national club teams are key areas of desired growth for these players. Position becomes more prominent as a focus at this level.
Players who qualify for our Level II program should have 2-4 years organized playing experience with at least 1-2 years of club ball, typically 5th grade and above (4th graders currently playing first year of club qualify). Players must have a basic foundation in the six fundamentals of volleyball (serving, passing, setting, hitting, blocking, and digging). The younger age players at this level continue to learn the sport of volleyball and are still exploring their growth potential. The older age players at this level are typically looking to grow their skill set to make their school and club teams.
Brand new players and those with light or less than two years experience will begin with our Level I programs. These players will get familiar with the six basic fundamentals of volleyball (serving, passing, setting, hitting, blocking, and digging). At this stage its all about building a volleyball foundation, learning to be a good teammate and having fun. Depending on age, players can spend 1-3 years at this level before moving up to Level II.
