A $200 non-refundable deposit to accept the offer is included in the dues. Dues cover coaches, equipment, tournament registrations, hotels for coaches at tournaments, and administration. Additional costs that families must consider are jersey packages and hotel expenses for overnight tournaments.
There is NO TRYOUT FEE. We encourage all players to attend both tryout sessions - think of it as two free clinics! Meet the coaches, players and other parents. But you MUST register online.
How is a travel team different from a Youth League team?
Travel teams are a major step in commitment and cost from Youth teams. Travel teams are part of USA Volleyball and compete in local and regional tournaments (Richmond, MD, PA, NY). The season for travel teams is typically five or six months with a tournament averaging two weekends a month. Practices are two times per week.
What's the schedule for Arlington Elite’s Boy’s team?
Early December through early or mid-May.
Two 2hr practices per week with optional clinics/workouts.
Practice times and days still TBD
What ages can play in this team?
We are targeting to create a U14 team, which means anyone born after 9/1/2003. We expect mostly 6th-8th graders (with stronger 5th graders).
Additionally, we are expanding the program to a U16 team this year. This will mean anyone born on or after 9/1/2001 is eligible. If you’re younger and interested then let us know.
What ‘level' of play is expected of this team?
The team will compete against teams from Richmond, VA Beach, Maryland, NoVa and Delaware. The level of competition will be considerably higher than Youth league. Prior playing experience certainly helps, but it’s not required; the longer season provides us the time to develop players with any experience.
Our family has scheduled vacations that may conflict with practices and some weekend tournaments. Is that OK?
We expect a high level of commitment; however, we believe that volleyball should enhance your child’s life rather than overtake it. We realize families travel and kids have other interests in their young lives – communicate with the coach to make sure everyone is on the same page so there are no surprises.
What’s the cost? Season dues: $1,350 for U14 and $1,550 for U16
Who are the coaches?
Please visit the individual team pages
I'm attending tryouts from another boys club. Is that Ok?
Absolutely! We encourage that you attend tryouts at multiple clubs. Tryouts serve to find the best fit for you too! Ask coaches questions about their philosophy, team goals, playing time policies, etc. Make sure that you like the coaches as much as the coaches like you.
What's the playing time policy?
Everyone will get a chance to play, but it's not a equal-playing time policy. Read more about our Club's playing time policy for travel teams HERE.
I'm interested but would like to speak with someone?
You can reach out to Coach Noel at 301.802.9873 or email@example.com. He's also our boys Club Director.
Thank you and we look forward to seeing you on the court.
