Regional Program Overview

Girls’ Regional Teams are either an ideal starting point for elementary, middle school, and high school players looking to get started with club volleyball or for advanced high school athletes not quite ready to travel overnight. Practices are spent working on individual skills with an emphasis on team play in a fun, positive environment. Regional teams compete against other regional-based club programs at competitive events and do not travel overnight.

ROSTERS & PLAYER DEVELOPMENT PHILOSOPHY #

Chi City Volleyball takes a standard approach to building rosters for our Girls’ Regional Program.  Rosters will include:

  • 2 Setters
  • 1-2  Liberos
  • 4 Pin Players (Outsides & Opposites)
  • 2-3 Middle Blockers

We will use 5-1, 4-2, 6-2 offensive systems and standard substitution rules that are available in the USAV/AAU club volleyball rules.  Playing time will be less competitive in the Regional Program.  Coaches’ will make all reasonable attempts to use all players during tournament days.

PROGRAM FEATURES #

The following outlines each of the features of the Regional Program.  These are the “comparables” that players will use to evaluate their club program choices each season.

Experienced, Professionally Trained Coaching Staff #

Each of our Head Coaches in the Regional Program will have a minimum of 1 year of club, college or high school coaching experience and will be a minimum of 19 years old.  Most have MUCH more than that.  In addition, our coaches will undergo background screenings, First Aid training, and Positive Coaching Alliance certification.  On the court, our coaches will participate in LOVB’s internal development program including mindset training. This will be led by National Directors Jenny McDowell and Courtney Thompson.  Jenny is a 2-time NCAA National Champion and Courtney is 2-time Olympic Medalist. 

2 Practices/Week #

2 Team practices/week will be held throughout the season.  Team Practices are run and designed by the Technical Director.  Our Technical Director will “run the gym” and ensure that every player and team is following our Regional Program training curriculum.
