All teams will practice twice per week throughout their season. All practices will take place at Elder Grove School.
This year we will have our first 14's USAV team. We will travel to at least 3 out-of-state tournaments and compete in local tournaments. Elite team fees are $1500. THIS DOES NOT INCLUDE PLAYER TRAVEL/LODGING COSTS. Each player will be responsible for their own accommodations. Avalanche will be offering a payment plan. Elite players will need to be members of AAU and USAV. A parent or player is required to work either 7am- 12pm or 12pm-5pm (or end of tournament cleanup, whichever happens last) during the Avalanche tournaments.
*Here are the 3 out-of-state tournaments we will be attending:
~Northwest Qualifiers (Spokane Washington)
~Northern Lights Qualifiers (Minneapolis, Minnesota)
~Lone Star Classic (Dallas, Texas)
Tournaments are not a guarantee, but the club will register for 8-10 tournaments per team. A parent or player is required to work 7am-12pm or 12pm-5pm (or until the end of tournament clean up, whichever happens last) during one of the Avalanche tournaments.
*Age waivers are allowed for academic grades in all tournaments except the Big Sky Volleyfest (Metra Tournament).
