When is the Club Season?
Club Volleyball Season runs from first part of November through the last part of April. Tournaments start about the second week of January through the latter part of April.
When will Adrenaline Tryouts Be?
October 12thAND October 13th> 14 and Under
October 26thAND October 27th> 15 and Up
BOTH Tryout dates are at Grace Baptist Academy from 2:00-4:00 pm
Tryout Fee $40
For each age group, BOTH Tryout days are MANDATORY
Unless requested, EACH player will tryout with the age group that they are in by age (regardless of whether they want or plan to play up in age or not)
How many players are kept per team?
The goal for all Adrenaline Teams is to have an average of 9-10 players. Players selected on ANY Adrenaline Team for ANY age group will not be considered unless they WILL receive playing time. However, the amount of playing time will depend ultimately on the GAVC 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. However, with adequate GAVC Coaching Staff there will be NO limit set for the number of teams available if the tryout population requires more than 10.
What is the Player’s Fee?
The fee for each Adrenaline Player is $975. This fee covers things such as tournament fees (9), spandex, socks, club t-shirt, coaches’ payment. There may be an additional optional fee for extra apparel such as warm-ups, bags, sweats, etc., depending on the Adrenaline apparel chosen for the 2019-2020 club 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, 2019 and the second payment will be due on or before January 1, 2020. If players have not paid at least half their fees by December 1, 2019 or in FULL by the final deadline of January 1, 2020, they WILL NOT be allowed to participate in ANY practice or ANY tournaments until their fee is paid in full. GAVC Staff will be contacted if this occurs on an individual basis. 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 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 GAVC 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 the older age groups, the GAVC Director makes it a point to sign up for challenging/high competition tournaments with college coach exposure.
Where are Tournaments held and how many days?
Local Tournaments that Adrenaline plays in are tournaments hosted in the Chattanooga, Cleveland, and Dalton area clubs. Out of town tournaments are no more than 2-2 ½ hours away in locations like Atlanta, Knoxville, Nashville, Birmingham. 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 National Tournament is held in Orlando, Florida. Most ALL tournaments are 2 day tournaments which occur on a 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 normally are ALL DAY events because both the round robin tournament play (4 games) and then pool play tournament after (single elimination) are all in the 1 day format. Tournaments in the 2 day format usually have the round robin tournament play (4 games) on Saturday, and then 2 game guarantee tournament play on Sunday (play based on results from Saturday pool play).
How often will Teams Practice?
Each Adrenaline will practice a minimum of 2 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 in the past, almost all practice locations are in the local North Georgia area. HOWEVER, ADRENALINE IS NOT A GEORGIA CLUB ANYMORE, ONLY IN NAME. 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 and Ringgold Primary School have been practice sites in the past. Local churches such as First Baptist of Chickamauga, Oakwood Baptist, and East Brainerd Church of Christ have also been practice sites in the past. Currently we already have some Chattanooga churches and schools already secured at this time. If an Adrenaline Coach has access to a school, they will be using that as their GAVC Team 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 with a liability wavier to release ANY financial responsibility from the facility in the unforeseen event that a GAVC Player/Coach was injured.
We would LOVE to have your daughter JOIN our Adrenaline Family!
