Juniors Team Program

Overview

Based on our popular Juniors program, Juniors Teams practice exclusively in Greenville or Pickens. No tryouts are required for this program, and players will be placed on teams based on their age and ability level. Teams will be composed of 8-10 players and one coach. The Juniors Team season runs from November to early March, approximately 12 weeks total. Juniors teams are open only to players in the 12U and younger age groups. View the 2016-17 USAV Age Definitions to determine your daughter's age group.

Program Description

Our Juniors Teams are a great choice for beginning players looking to improve their volleyball skills and knowledge. The season will run for 12 weeks total. The first five-week session will begin in mid November and end before Christmas. During this session, players will practice twice a week, and coaches will focus on teaching basic individual volleyball skills and building players' confidence on and off the volleyball court.

The second seven-week session will begin in January. During this session, players will be divided into teams, which will practice once a week, and coaches will introduce and develop team skills while also maintaining individual skills. Several scrimmages between Juniors teams and State teams will also take place in January and February. Juniors teams will attend three tournaments in the Palmetto Region in 2017. Practices are tentatively scheduled for Sunday and Monday at the Imagine Center.
