Sessions During the AAU season we have two separate seasons: 2019 Winter: January - March 2019 Spring: April - June
The club fee is $500 per athlete, per season. This covers uniforms, facility rentals, facility insurance, equipment fees, tournament fees, and coaching fees.
Please make checks payable to Charger Volleyball Club. In the "memo" section of the check, please put the player's full first and last name so that we make sure that the correct check is applied to the correct player.
We ask that a $150 initial payment be made at the first practice. The deposit will secure the athletes spot on the team and will allow the club to start registering athletes with AAU as well as being to register for tournaments.
Please note that there is a 1 week grace period after the initial payment is made in which you can receive a refund.
Who Can Play Because the development of Churchill High School volleyball players is Charger VBC's first concern, we have designed a priority list from which we admit players*:
1. Current Churchill Volleyball Players 2. Current Churchill High School Athletes who wish to play 3. Incoming 9th Grade Churchill Athletes 4. Senior Volleyball Players from Churchill 5. Athletes from outside Churchill High School
*Because of this system, Charger VBC does not hold competitive tryouts for our teams. To hold true to our commitment to stay a small club, we limit each team to approximately ten players each.
*Also, playing Winter session does not automatically put you at the top of Spring session's registration list. We revert back to the priority list at the beginning of each new season.
Communication Communication is extremely important to the success of our program! The planning and scheduling of AAU can be unpredictable and chaotic at times. Because of this, we ask for your utmost patience and understanding during the season! We try our hardest to get you the information you need the quickest way possible. That being said, please check your email and this website for any updates daily!Email, visiting the Charger website, Facebook page (facebook.com/ChargerVBC) are the best ways for players, parents, and coaches to be updated with the latest information.
Communication between players & coaches If a player has questions or concerns regarding playing time or unclear expectations, we encourage that she approach her coach first. By doing so, this allows for instant and direct communication where both parties can come to a shared understanding. It also fosters the development of communication skills for our young players. The most optimal environment for this type of conversation to occur would bebefore or after practice.
Communication between Parents & Coaches We strongly ask that parents refrain from approaching coaches about other players. Coaches will not discuss any player to a parent other than their own child. This protects the confidentiality of other players and families.
If a player/parent has a concern/problem during a tournament, we ask that a 24 hour grace period be given before contacting the coach. If you have contacted the coach and for some reason feel unsatisfied with the answers, contact the club director.
Playing Time Since Charger VBC emphasizes player development and getting tons of contacts on the ball, we make sure that playing time is as fair and as equal as possible for each player. This may or may not come on a game to game basis, or tournament to tournament basis, but throughout the course of the season. That being said, there are some positions (i.e. setter) that may require more playing time because of the demands of that position.
Any playing time issues during the course of the season should be brought up by the player to their specific coach, first! If questions remain, they can be brought to the club director who will then address the subject with the given coach.
