We understand playing time can be a sensitive subject for players and families. While we do guarantee a fair amount of playing time for each player, we do not guarantee an equal amount. Every tournament holds a high-significance in the club volleyball season. Regional tournaments determine a team's overall seed and play a major role in National Qualifiers. Playing at the national level - where a high competitive standard is expected always - requires having the best gameplay, team chemistry and consistency on the court. Your club membership fees pay for practices, fitness training, experienced coaching, tournament fees and player hotel rooms, NOT playing time on the court during games/tournaments.
Additional things to note concerning playing time:
- Playing time can be affected by a player's attitude and ability to cooperate with the team.
- Commitment to the team, practice and tournament schedule is also taken into consideration by coaches.
- Playing time is not personal. Ultimately, we're there to win!
- Sometimes, but not always, a player's ability to be well-rounded (playing "all the way around"; both front and back row; defense and offense) in volleyball is important.
