TEAM DEFINITIONS

National Teams - These teams are the highest level teams in each age group and will practice 3 days a week. Their tournament schedule is mostly played out of region where they will compete against clubs from across the country.  National teams are trying to earn a bid to the USAV National tournament. If bids are earned, they will attend USAV Nationals. If USAV bids are not earned, they will be attending AAU Nationals in Orlando, FL. U18 is usually in May and U11- U17 In June/July.

 

Open Teams - These are our In-Region Open level teams that will practice 2-3 days a week. The goal of an Open team is to compete in Open level and higher age group competitions within our Region. These teams will play in AAU Bid winning tournaments, where the goal is to earn an AAU Bid. U15-U18 teams will attend AAU Nationals in Orlando, FL even if an AAU bid is not earned. Teams U14 and below must earn an AAU bid to attend AAU Nationals in Orlando, FL.

Club Teams - These teams will be our developmental teams and will practice 2 days a week. The goal is to develop athletes' skills to where they are competing at a very high level within our region and within their age group at the club level.  If enough progress is made during the season, the coach and director can decide to place the team in an AAU tournament for the opportunity to earn a bid. If they earn a bid to AAUs they will be attending AAU Nationals in Orlando, FL (U18) in May and (U11 - U17) In June/July. 

U11 Team - This team will practice 2 days a week, and compete in primarily in CHRVA tournaments. If the team earns a bid to Nationals, they will be attending which ever bid they win (AAU or USAV).  

 

The level of teams will be decided at tryouts. When offers are given out to players, they will know which team they have been selected for. The below schedules are what we intend on playing in.  However, they are tentative as it will be based off of our acceptance into each tournament.
