Club Season 20-21

Empower Volleyball is committed to training the whole athlete and providing high quality training and playing experiences for all youth. 

Any player who enters a volleyball program has the right to expect quality coaching and instruction. Empower Volleyball's coaches are certified via USA Volleyball's CAP program.  This program is built on an on-going, progressive format in which coaches at all levels receive the most current information available on volleyball. USAV CAP instruction is based on sound principles in the areas of skills development, tactical systems, physical training, motor learning, sports psychology and administration.

As we navigate the pandemic and receive news and information about being able to compete, we will communicate with families. Once we know when competitions will begin, we will start the process of team selection. At that time:

  • Teams will be chosen for local/regional, and national teams based on various factors. Families will receive more details and information with regards to additional costs and time commitments for these teams in order to make decisions about team placement.

  • If you have not done so already, you may be required to obtain USAV and/or AAU membership at that time. 

  • Open Tryouts MAY or MAY NOT BE HELD at that time. We will first reach out if additional spots open up and we are looking to fill them. Priority offers will be given to athletes who have already trained with us over players new to the program.  

Once your athlete has been offered a spot on a team, a season commitment must be made and a revised contract and financial agreement must be completed. If you are selected for a team, the competitive club season can look very similar to what you see on the chart below.  Additional costs will be based on events and tournaments attended by each team.
