Tryouts for the 23-24 USAV “club” season
We still have a handful of openings for specific positions in some ages. Here are the openings we have:
11U, 12U – we will conduct our primary tryouts for 11U & 12U in conjunction with the KVA Fall Power League. We encourage all players of these age groups to participate in the Fall League as preparation for the tryout, which will be held in late September or early October
13U – middle blocker and pin hitter (able to hit left side or right side)
14U – middle blocker and pin hitter (able to hit left side or right side)
16U – setter, pin hitter (able to hit left side or right side)
For the 22-23 USAV season all of our teams began with what we called a “basic season”, and then we gave options to the parents to increase the number of tournaments and extend the season. As it turned out, all of the parents wanted more! Tournaments were added for all teams, some including tournaments in San Antonio and Dallas. We also provided access to the HUDL program for almost all teams from 13U and older.
For this reason, for our 23-24 season we are going to begin with what we now believe parents are actually looking for, based on interest shown in the 22-23 season. In addition, we plan to upgrade our uniform package to better represent KVA both locally and on the road while enhancing comfort to meet the needs of our athletes.
Schedules will vary a bit depending on team placement, but all teams will play a full schedule this coming season as compared to last season. We will be adding the Cross Court Classic, as well as a couple of additional local events. We are not planning any tournaments that will require flying, but we will be sending teams to the Lone Star Classic in Dallas. Top teams will extend to the Lone Star Regional Championships in Houston, which usually take place in late April or early May.
OVERVIEW OF FEES
12U – $1,750, with an option to extend to Regionals if parents are interested
13U and older – $2,250 to $2,550, depending on team placement. Top teams in each age will participate in HUDL and Regional, 2nd teams in each age will have the option to upgrade to HUDL and/or Region based on parental interest.
While these fees are increases as compared to our basic schedule for 22-23, they are actually very close to what our teams ended up paying this past season after adding the optional tournaments chosen by the parents. With these additions, as well as upgrading uniforms, we still feel like KVA Attack offers an exceptional value when compared to the $4,000 to $6,000 that other clubs in the area are charging. We focus on providing solid & consistent coaching lots with of touches and repetitions. Our teams continue to be competitive each season, finishing near the top of Power League standings and playing in medal matches in both local and out of town tournaments.
Thanks for your interest in KVA! We hope that you will consider being a part of the KVA family for the 23-24 season!
Please note: practices will not begin until mid November and the season will continue through late March or early April.
