PARENT ORIENTATION

 SPIRIT would like to introduce you to the exciting world of Junior Olympics. 

1. The first day clubs may host tryouts for girls in grades 9-12 is the day after the State Championship

2. Tryouts for girls in the 8th grade or younger may be held no earlier than the last weekend in October

Q: What age group do I try out for? 

A: We recommend you try out for your skill level.

Q: When do we practice and on what days? 

A: Time and days of the practices will be posted by December 1st 

Q: Where do the girls play their games? 

A: All the tournaments are either on Saturdays or Sundays. The normal scheduled start time is 8:30 AM and most tournaments are done by 6:00 PM.

Q: Where do they play? 

A: Tournaments will normally be within a 90 minute drive from LCCC. It is very rare that we travel farther (except for national teams.)

Q: Can my child play other sports?

A: We encourage players to participate in all sports and school activities. Make sure you notify your coach at least 2 weeks ahead of time for any conflicts in schedule.

If your child leaves a tournament to participate in another activity, she will no longer be considered a player on that team for the balance of the tournament. Thus, her coach has the option to play her or not, if she is to come back.

  

EXCEPTIONS:

  1. Doctor appointment

  2. Drivers Ed

  3. Medical emergency

 

NATIONAL & AMERICAN TEAM PLAYERS:

SPIRIT volleyball practices and tournaments should be your main sport/activity. If you feel your might be missing more than 15% of practices and 0% of tournaments, you should try out for a regional team.

Q: What am I paying for?

A: SPIRIT is a very unique JO club. We are the only club to guarantee 50% playing time for regional players who "abide" by club rules.

Your club fee covers:

  • Uniforms

  • 2 jerseys

  • 1 spandex shorts

  • 1 sport bag

  • 1 warm up suits

  • 2 Spirit practice T-shirts

  • Coaches fees (coaching is a paid position)

  • Tournament entry fees (tournaments cost)

  • Gym time for practices

  • Equipment, balls, med kits, etc.

 

Q: Can I have sponsors pay for my child? 

A: Yes, you can. You can sell ads in the Media Book, that will recognize the sponsors/SPIRIT teams/players and coaches.

If you still have questions, please don't hesitate to email or call us.
