If you attend tryouts, put down your down payment, and are selected for a team, you are committed to play with us. If selected to participate with us, practice begins Sunday, November 19; athletes and families will also attend the season meeting on November 14.

Viewed season fees and payment schedule
Tryouts occur in October or early November, depending on the age division. The club volleyball season runs tryouts- June for 12s-17s; early season conclusion for 11/12s, some 13s, and 18s (May).
Training Time Commitments
Teams practice twice a week, one weeknight and one weekend time. Practices are two hours in length. We break for the Winter holiday and one week in March. Athletes will train a minimum of one ETS session per week scheduled at your convenience.
One (optional) weekly positional training on Monday nights from December-May is highly encouraged for skill development for all athletes.
Competition (Tournament) Time Commitments
Our teams participate in six-eight competition weekends from January-June. Many of the competitions are out of town (not in the Eau Claire area), requiring you to make travel and lodging accommodations. When selected for a team it is assumed you will participate in all events.
Events are still being posted and updated by their hosts. It is possible that changes to the schedule will occur during the season.
