When is the Club Season?
Club Volleyball Season runs from middle of November through the end of April. Tournaments start about the second week of January and last to the latter part of April. If the team your daughter plays on does post season play, it can be through the 2nd week of June.
When will Adrenaline Tryouts Be?
Tryouts for ages 14 and under will be on October 13th AND 14th. Tryouts for ages 15 and up will be on October 20th AND October 21st. Both Tryouts are at Heritage Middle School (4005 Poplar Springs Road, Ringgold, Ga. 30736) from 2:00-4:00 pm. BOTH DAYS ARE MANDATORY and you must tryout with their ACTUAL age.
The tryout fee is $40
How many players are kept per team?
All Adrenaline Teams have an average of 10 players. Players are not kept on any Adrenaline Team at any age group unless they will receive playing time. However, the amount of playing time will depend ultimately upon the coaching staff and work of the individual player.
How many teams will Adrenaline Volleyball Club have?
Adrenaline Volleyball Club is known for being elite; few teams and few players per team. This past season Adrenaline had 8 teams. Depending on the population at tryouts, the desire is for Adrenaline to have 10 teams or less for the upcoming club season.
What is the Player’s Fee?
The fee for each Adrenaline Player is $950. This fee covers things such as tournament fees(9), SRVA registration, spandex, socks, club t-shirt, coaches’ payment. There may be an additional fee for extra apparel such as warm-ups, bags, sweats, etc., depending on the Adrenaline apparel decided on for the season.
When is the Fee due?
The fee can be paid in two separate installments or in full. The first payment will be due on or before December 1, 2018 and the second payment will be due on or before January 1, 2019. If players have not paid at least half their fees by December 1, 2018 or in FULL by the final deadline of January 1, 2019, they WILL NOT be allowed to participate in ANY practice or ANY tournaments until their fee is paid in full. All Adrenaline financial transactions will be confidential and should there be an unforeseen circumstance arise, the GAVC Director reserves the right to work individually with any GAVC parent on an individual and confidential basis.
How often are Tournaments?
Adrenaline Teams play an average of between 8-10 tournaments, depending on the age group, availability of tournaments, and player/parent interests. The Adrenaline budget is designed to finance 9 tournaments per Adrenaline Team. All tournament schedules will be set up based on tournament and coach availability. Tournament availability varies from month to month. There are tournaments scheduled for at least twice a month unless there is not availability. For older age groups, the GAVC Director makes a point to sign up for challenging/high competition tournaments with college exposure.
Where are Tournaments held and how many day?
Local Tournaments that Adrenaline plays in are tournaments hosted in the Chattanooga, Cleveland, and Dalton areas. Out of town tournaments are no more than 2-2 ½ hours away in locations like Atlanta, Knoxville, Nashville, Birmingham, etc. For the older age groups, tournaments may be more than 2 ½ hours away due to the decision of each team. For example, the AAU Nationals Tournament is held in Orlando, Florida. Most all tournaments are 2 days which occur on Saturday/Sunday. There are still some 1 day tournaments but each club season they are becoming fewer and transitioning to the 2 day format. 1 day tournaments are normally ALL DAY events because both pool play (4 games) on Saturday, and then tournament after (single elimination) are all in 1 day format. Tournaments in the 2 day format usually have the pool play (4 games) on saturday, and then 2 game guarantee tournament play on Sunday.
How often will Teams Practice?
Each Adrenaline will practice a minimum of two times each week, except for the week of Thanksgiving, and the week of Christmas. On the weeks that no tournaments are being played, individual coaches reserve the right to reduce/cancel practice days.
Where are the Practice Locations?
Since Adrenaline has been a Georgia Club, almost all practice locations are in the local North Georgia area. Due to the fact that the Director lives in Chattanooga, practice sites are being explored in the Tennessee schools and churches. Local schools such as Heritage Middle School, Ringgold Middle School, and Ringgold Primary School have been practice sites in the past. Local churches such as First Baptist of Chickamauga, First Baptist of Fort Oglethorpe, Oakwood Baptist, and East Brainerd Church of Christ have also been practice sites in the past. If an Adrenaline Coach has access to a school, they will be using that as a practice site. Otherwise, local churches will be considered. If you have access to a facility that is equipped for volleyball practices, please let me know and I will be glad to make changes to accommodate based on player locations. Adrenaline carries individual liability insurance on each GAVC player as well as their insurance coverage through SRVA. As a result, Adrenaline will provide ANY gym facility in the overseen event that GAVC player/coach was injured.
We would LOVE to have your daughter JOIN our Adrenaline Family!
