Who coaches traveling teams?

Our teams generally have a paid coach, but sometimes the coach
is a parent. We have had coaches from the high school coaching
staff, college students, and distinguished alumnae from AVHS. We
prefer to hire coaches who have a background in coaching or have
extensive experience playing volleyball.

What does our fee pay for?

Your fees pay for registration fees for Fall league at Northern Lights , gym time for practices, coaching, uniform, practice T-shirt. Shoes, knee pads, warm-ups, and gym bags are all extras.

Are there tryouts for teams? Can every girl make a team?

There are tryouts, and sometimes girls do not make any team. We
would like to include as many girls as possible, but sometimes the
numbers do not work out well. A roster of ten girls per team is
generaly considered ideal. If 15 girls were to tryout at one age
level, we cannot make a team that includes all 15, and we cannot
make two teams from so few girls. 

Fall League is divided into two age divisions 12U & 14U.   If
the younger players are very strong, we will have mixed teams.
Tryouts may determine whether you make some team, but teams might not be divided until after practices have begun.

How are age groups determined for traveling volleyball?

The player’s age on September 1 determines their age group. For
example, girls who turn 12 between Sept. 1, 2017 and Aug. 31, 2018 will be eligible to play in the 12 and under age group for the
2018 season. Girls may “play up” at the discretion of the club.

Are there state or national tournaments for Fall traveling volleyball?

There is no state tournament for fall traveling volleyball as there is
in many other sports.
