Club Volleyball



IVA CLUB PROGRAM

Our club teams, led by an elite level coaching staff, are competitive travel teams. Teams train 2-3 times a week on a 5-6 month schedule. Members of these teams are selected by a try-out process and receive high-quality practices/ instruction as well as competitive play at tournaments both locally, regionally and nationally.


 CLUB PROGRAM FAQ'S

Commonly Asked Questions and Information



WHAT AGE GROUPS DO YOU OFFER?

12-18U

Club Volleyball Programs around the nation start as early as 10U (9-10 year olds) and goes through 18U (high school seniors).  We often have 10-11 year olds participate on our 12U or 13U teams!


WHY SHOULD MY ATHLETE PLAY CLUB VOLLEYBALL?

It is our firm belief that enrolling your daughter in our club will give her the edge she needs to succeed in volleyball in the future. Participation in club volleyball gives athletes another 100-200 hours of practice, tournament, and physical training time each year.  During such a time period, many players, especially young players, see significant growth.  Further, club volleyball gives its athletes opportunities to learn lessons that extend far beyond the court.  Players are given opportunities to meet, learn, cooperate with and make new friends.  See more details below:

Impact Volleyball Academy's Club Program offers many advantages to athletes and, while each athletes club volleyball experience may differ, participation can provide multiple opportunities:

  • Improve technical, tactical and physical skills through an intensive 5-6 month season outside of the athletes school team
  • Compete at a higher level of volleyball to push the athlete to reach their individual peak potential
  • Gain exposure (at elite levels) to college coaches and programs. It should be noted that many players and their families choose to participate in club volleyball simply for this reason. However, while playing on a club volleyball team is essential to being recruited, it neither guarantees that it will happen, nor is it enough on its own.
  • Meet new friends and play with athletes whose goals are like their own be a part of a true Family Culture
  • Gain intangible rewards such as improved mental and emotional maturity and valuable character traits
  • Participation in the sport she LOVES at the elite level

HOW LONG IS THE SEASON?

5-7 months for most teams.  Most of our teams compete and practice on a regional schedule.  Some of our more elite teams may compete on a semi-national schedule and may play through Nationals in late June.  Teams are made aware up front how long their schedule will go.


WHEN DOES THE SEASON START?

November

Practice begins in November with tournament play starting in January.


WILL I PLAY THE SAME POSITION I PLAY FOR MY SCHOOL TEAM?

Typically, YES.....Sometimes, NO

We will make every effort to train you in the position you play at school, and most often, at a position you tryout for.  However, at times a teams dynamic requires that we unexpectedly train you at a secondary or new position.  You should be willing to play any reasonable position.  If a coach foresees you at a different position than that which you tried out for, you will be made aware of these intentions prior to commitment whenever possible.  Your position is not guaranteed, only your place offered.


WHAT IS IMPACT'S PLAYING TIME POLICY?

EQUAL PRACTICE TIME, FAIR PLAYING TIME

Impact Volleyball Academy does not guarantee equal playing time at tournaments.  Every IVA club athlete receives equal and ample opportunity to learn, grow, and prove themselves in practice.  We guarantee "fair" playing time for each player, taking into consideration skill level, attitude, attendance, commitment, position, and performance in practice.  The exception to this is on our 12U teams on which a more balanced playing time approach is used.  A complete equality of playing is not guaranteed.


WHAT DOES IMPACT VOLLEYBALL ACADEMY CLUB PROGRAM COST?

$1500-$2600 Depending on the age group, level of play, etc.

All club fees cover coaching fees, gym costs, region registration fees, tournament registration fees, uniform expenses (3 sublimated jerseys, bag, warm up pants, warm up jacket, and cover up shorts) and administrative expenses, but do not include any travel expenses (food, transportation, or lodging) associated with tournaments.  Deposit of $300 is due on the day of tryouts for all players that make a team.  That amount is deducted from the total tuition amount and remainder amount is divided equally into monthly payments.  Choose from a 9-month payment plan or a 6-month payment plan.

We will make every effort to keep costs as low as possible and believe that cost should never be a factor in whether or not an athlete can participate in our program.  We offer several opportunities to fundraise throughout the season, so please contact us if you have concerns â?? we would love to work with you! For more cost specifics or questions, please contact Jill Mack at 863-206-4443.

WHERE ARE CLUB PRACTICES HELD?

We are currently using a warehouse in Lake Wales for tryouts, clinics and privates. Once the Field House in Winter Haven is clear to accept team training, we will be moving all practices and workouts to that location.  Our agreement with the City of Winter Haven is to have 3 practice courts available to use 3 days a week by the beginning of the club season.   

Lake Wales Warehouse: 1400 Resmondo Drive (this address does not always come up so please map Patton Tires which is located diagonally to us).

Winter Haven Field House: 210 Cypress Gardens Blvd.
