EXPECTATIONS AND BACKGROUND (2013-10-02)

2014

Goals –
Together, we will develop a highly skilled, competitive team that loves to play volleyball, supports our teammates, and strives to improve our volleyball leadership, communication, and mental preparedness.

J We are preparing our players to compete for roster spots on their high school varsity and junior varsity teams.

Coaches – Greg, McIntyre, Phil Oshida, and Caitlin Oshida.
Our coaches are CAP and IMPACT certified and provide substantial individual instruction to players in addition to team teaching. Individual and team improvement will be stressed, with the expectation that improvement will result in favorable tournament results. (see http://club.brycvolleyballclub.org/coaches)

2014 Tournaments -
We are planning to compete in at least four multi-day volleyball tournaments, the CHRVA 14’s Regional Tournament, and several regional one-day tournaments. The multi-day tournaments are the Monument City Classic (January 18-20 in Richmond, Virginia), the Capitol Hill Classic (February 15-17 in Washington, DC), the Northeast Qualifier (April 18-20, which is Easter weekend including Sunday, in National Harbor, Maryland), and Beachfest II (May in Ocean City, Maryland). We hope to play in a Mid-Atlantic Power League (MAPL) weekend tournament in Raleigh, NC (March 8-9) or York, PA (March 22-23). Barring injury, we expect all of our players to be committed to play in all matches of the multi-day tournaments.

Practices –
Practices are likely to be 90 minutes to 2 hours in duration on Fridays and Tuesdays or Wednesdays. Locations will be local (e.g., Kings Glen ES, Poe MS, Laurel Ridge ES). Some additional practices and scrimmages will be on Saturdays or Sundays, primarily early in the season as we prepare for the Monument City Classic and Capitol Hill Classic Tournaments.

The Tournament and Practice information is subject to change, but is accurate at this time (October 2, 2013).

Volleyball Performance/Fitness Training -
All our players will be provided with volleyball fitness/performance training by staff from SAPT (Strength And Performance Training). We have observed tremendous improvement in volleyball performance in our players and other players who have trained with SAPT. Fitness/Performance training sessions will take place 1-2 days per week for approximately one hour per session throughout the season.

Player Fee (tentative): $1900 for the season
Fee covers the following: jerseys, warm-up clothes, tournament fees, lodging at overnight tournaments, SAPT fitness training, and practice facilities.
