Cost depends on level of team and amount of travel. National UA teams are always the most expensive and league teams are very economical. We have several levels from UA National team, Elite, Premier, Select and Regional.
The only requirements to play are show up, register, have a good attitude and be willing to work. You must complete the waivers and complete any registrations or fees
That commits you to the full payment for the season of travel whether you finish the season or not. It also binds you to the Shock and you are not allowed by USAV rules to join another team without our permission.
Yes, you need comfortable volleyball shoes, Under Armour knee pads, black spandex, and practice shirts. This can all be purchased on our team stores.
League only season is from late February to first weekend in May.
Travel youth is usually November to May for regular season and on into June for National teams. The same mostly for high school travel.
We always say school ball comes first. We try to move practices to Sunday, never play a weekend they have Junior High ball and usually start playing after their season to the best of our ability, obviously there are exceptions. To avoid issues with weekly practice we convert during this time to a skills practice open a couple times during the week to those with no conflict. They just come to the ones they are open to get their practice time. If they choose not to come, that is their loss and we expect them to make best efforts.
