What to Expect?

Below is the information for last year's 2019 - 2020 season for your reference.  Due to Covid and the IHSA change of seasons for girls and boys volleyball, this year will look different. Rather than make rash decisions on the season plan, we are going to thoughtfully lay out the plan for this upcoming season. Thank you in advance for bearing with us as we work through that. We expect to have the plan in place over the week of Aug. 10th.

 

Our club is divided into two programs: Elite and Premier. The Elite Program is more advanced and demands a greater level of commitment from the athlete. Our Premier Program is aimed at athletes looking for a shorter season and less overall travel. For a more detailed view of all of our programs, see below.
