The practice player program is an effort to afford opportunities to the players who may not be ready for the time (or financial) commitment of a full club team. Many players miss out on the club ball training experience because of other sports and activities. This is a great solution for the players who can’t commit to a club travel team.
All practice player training will be led and directed by Lance Woods.
Practice Players is a concept that we implemented last season after the requests of parents/players to train more consistently throughout the season than what sporadic clinics could offer but without the travelling required of club volleyball.
For ages 10-18 years old

We have had an amazing response for our Practice Player Term 2 Program! Because of this, we are able to split the practices by age. *Some players may be asked to change groups based on ability. That is determined by the coach*

We will combine age groups as necessary after registration. Our goal is to have 2 groups: 10-14 year olds and 15-18 year olds. Advanced 14 year olds may be asked to join the older group. New to volleyball 15 year olds may be asked to join the younger group. These are coaching decisions, not parent requests, so please sign up for & attend your appropriate age group session. We will let you know if a move is needed.
There is NO TRYOUT required. Simply sign up & pay
BVC is not responsible for lost volleyballs. We provide them for warm up & competition so we suggest that you do not bring your own. Kneepads are recommended. We suggest that players wear their hair up so it doesn’t get in the way. Athletic shoes (NOT Keds/Converse/SlipOns) are required but they do not have to be volleyball specific. Athletic shorts/spandex & t-shirt are ideal. Players must wear a mask into the building but are allowed to remove it for practice. Bring your own water. Additional COVID guidelines will be emailed to you the week before the term begins. Practices are not open to spectators.
Each group will have a knowledgeable coach. Players will practice as a group, mostly participating in skills drills but there will also be competition drills to gain “game-like” experience.
Cost: $145 per player per term if paid with cash/check. $150 per player per term if paid via PayPal.
Registration & Payment must be made prior to attending. If you pay for 3 months in advance, you receive a $35 discount (on the total amount). You will receive a t-shirt.
Cash/Check, made out to BVC, can be mailed to/dropped off at our facility or payment can be made via PayPal ($150) to TLE4@bellsouth.net.
PAYMENT MUST BE RECEIVED IN ORDER TO SECURE YOUR SPOT & BE PRIOR TO THE FIRST SESSION.
We will have more terms of Practice Players starting approximately each month through May 2021. We will put up the registration for those terms about half way through the current term.
**Above are the anticipated days/times for this event. Sometimes we have to change them based on the number of registrations being drastically lower or higher than estimated. We try to not have to do this as we understand that you make plans based on published information but sometimes it is out of our control. We want to give everyone the opportunity to play and moving some things around allows us to do that.*
