QCVA’s three teams — 15U, 16U and 17U — will compete at the National level in nine tournaments in 2020.
QCVA understands that every family wants to make the most of its investment in your child. We’ve designed our program with the aim to lower the cost barriers to help make competitive volleyball more accessible to Charlotte-area youth.
The participation tuition for the 2019 – 2020 season is $1,700. This expense covers tournament fees, facilities, equipment, team building activities, coaching fees, fitness classes, college recruiting support, dietary consultation and leadership workshops.
- Tuition does not include: Apparel, shoes, bookbags, and travel expenses.
- No one will be turned away due to an inability to pay. If the need is established and demonstrated, we’ll work with that athlete’s family to support their participation on the team. This is inclusive of finding efficiencies in traveling to/from tournaments and stays during tournaments.
- In this inaugural year, we’ll also work to solicit donations and sponsorships to offset the costs that are not included in the tuition.
Though we are made up of three teams, we’re working to build a unique culture and community in QCVA. We build and support each other, whether a coach, athlete, player or admin. We actively involve each athlete’s entire family. Athletes are always expected to show up, sit together at tournaments, cheer on QCVA teams, study our competition during breaks, watch film to learn from mistakes, and celebrate successes.
Practices will consist of a mixture of drills/skills development, strength and conditioning, and scrimmage play based on the need of the team. There may be times when teams practice together to work on specific skill sets and to build unity. Coach Rachel supports individual skills development and provide continuity between teams, and from one season to the next.
Sport has transcendent power to build connection and bridge divides. In addition to volleyball training, QCVA places a priority on helping to develop young people into active and productive citizens in the world. Our ‘off the court’ programming will include activities focused on things like:
- Volleyball IQ enrichment
- College recruiting
- Leadership development
- Community service
- Strength and conditioning
- Team building
- Social issue awareness
- Dietary/nutritional consultation
