Travel Players – Travel players participate in all practices and attend all tournaments. Players
are encouraged to participate in both Winter and Spring seasons, but single season
memberships are available. Each season consists of 4-6 tournaments/events. Some teams do a
mix of 1-day and 2-day tournaments and some do only 2-day tournaments. Cost – $850 for one
season or $1500 for both seasons.
Practice Players – Each travel team carries 4-6 practice players. These players are a part of the
team, but they don’t travel to tournaments unless a travel player has an injury or can’t come to
a tournament for another reason. Practice players participate in all practices and drills and
receive the same training as travel players. This is good for families that have other time
commitments. It is also a valuable training opportunity without incurring the other costs of
being a travel player. Cost – $295
Developmental – A group of 12-16 players is trained as a team but don’t participate in
tournaments. The players are trained in positions and participate in drills/modified games to
learn the fundamental skills and concepts of volleyball. The Developmental teams usually
scrimmage other teams in-house toward the end of each season. Cost – $295
National Program – Some teams will be traveling to Orlando for AAU Nationals. This is an additional cost to pay for coaching, gym space, coach transportation and house, plus other fees. The base fee is $400. If a team earns a bid the fee will be $300.
This season the the YMCA fees are rolled into the player costs in lieu of memberships for each player.
