It is a busy week and there is a lot of information to share. Please read the whole post today.
Our Middle School program continues and we are receiving lots of good feedback. Thank you to Middle School gurus Mrs. Erinn Varela and coach Philip Varela for their awesome efforts to help us build this exciting new part of our program. We will continue with clinics geared towards male and female athletes 4th grade through 8th grade throughout the remainder of the calendar year.
The program emphasizes solid core fundamentals in a fun environment that is active and dynamic. We have already seen enormous improvement in those that have attended.
Please join us in November ad December by registering HERE.
Developmental League, Teams & Tryouts
The SCVA will continue sponsoring the Las Vegas League this coming season. The developmental tournaments held at various Las Vegas sites, including UNLV, will begin in February 2015. We will field teams for boys and girls in the coming developmental season. We are thrilled to enter another new area and continue growing the game. Our program leadership has been instrumental in the creation of the local tournaments.
We will hold tryouts in early January for the 2015 SCVA Las Vegas Developmental League. We anticipate fielding an all boys team. Please consider joining our program. We are aware that the “norm” in Las Vegas is to hold tryouts in early October. We will not have tryouts in October or November for the 2015 season. We just do not believe that this is in the best interest of the athletes and families. We encourage you to enroll in our Middle School Clinics then join our teams in January. There are programs asking for commitments now and we understand that waiting my feel uncomfortable. If you can, wait until January to make a commitment. Youth sports needs less “same old, same old” and pressure. We have consistently offered the best training and volleyball experience for our athletes.
New Programming Coming
In addition to expanding our work with younger athletes, we are thrilled to announce that we will begin adding BEACH volleyball this season. Our existing boys’ teams will soon have a weekly “sand training” practice added to their normal practice schedule.
In Spring 2015, we will formally begin the BEACH division of Vegas Volleyball Club. We will train and compete in beach events. The beach season normally begins late spring and runs through early August. We are expanding our coaching staff to add expertise and experience on the sand. Our Beach programming will be open to both boys and girls. Look for more information coming soon!
