The Palmetto Region of USA Volleyball (USAV) consists of more than 50 member clubs that offer training, coaching, and development opportunities in indoor and beach volleyball for boys and girls up to the age of 18. Knowing which club is the best fit for an athlete and his/her family can be a daunting decision. To help choose a club that leads to the best opportunities for development and maximum enjoyment from the experience, the Region has put together this list of questions. Athletes and their families should feel like each club director can provide honest answers to these questions. Decide what is most important to your family and give thoughtful consideration to each response. Once commitment letters are signed, clubs and families enter into a legal agreement with each other. Make sure you understand expectations and responsibilities!
Choosing a volleyball club is serious business. It is a commitment in time and money as well as an individual commitment to a club for the duration of the season. Spending a little time researching your options and opportunities may save you from a frustrating (or worse) season. Be sure to ask lots of questions. If possible, talk with players and parents who have played in the club before. If a club is hesitant to answer those questions, it is probably best to move on. Remember, volleyball is supposed to be FUN!
