The National Team level is for athletes who have aspirations to play at the collegiate level. By joining a national team, athletes are making a commitment to prioritize volleyball. It is expected that players will attend every practice and every tournament with a high-level of focus and commitment. All National teams will attend multiple qualifiers and compete to earn a bid to nationals. All teams will compete in a national tournament at the end of the season (USAV or AAU National Championships).
Power teams focus on development, exposure, and experience as athletes work to improve their overall skillsets, build relationships, and develop a love for the sport. These teams provide opportunities for players who want to compete, but are not at the National team level yet. Athletes will be trained with a focus on high quality repetitions to ensure improvement throughout the season. Athletes will be constantly evaluated for opportunities to move up to the national teams in the future.
Premier teams are great for athletes who are interested in volleyball but may not be ready to commit a significant amount of time to travel. Premier focuses on learning fundamentals, building proper mechanics, and developing an athletes volleyball IQ. This is a great level for players who are looking to play throughout the year to make their school teams and continue to progress in the sport. The coaches of these teams will strive to foster a love of the game while teaching fundamentals, and providing opportunities to play in challenging local matches.
