4. TYPES OF CLUB TEAMS
AVC offers three divisions/levels of teams:
“National” division teams require the most commitment. These teams (Red, White & Blue) are designed for athletes who want to play volleyball at the highest level. Our top National teams will compete in the Open & National divisions in tournaments where the competition is the most rigorous. These teams will play in tournaments that require out-of-state travel, some of which require flights.
“American” division teams are a lower level of commitment compared to National teams. These teams are great for athletes looking to play competitively. This division is to showcase regionally strong teams that may travel out of state.
“Regional” division teams require the least commitment. They are a great fit for athletes who are newer to the sport or prefer less travel.
Note: During the tryout registration process you can select which division(s) you are interested in. If you only want to play on a regional division team, you can specify that, and your daughter will only be placed on a regional team at tryouts.
Differences in Divisions:
|Season||December – May||December – May||December – July|
|Practices||2 hours, 2 times a week||2 hours, 3 times a week||2 hours, 3-4 times a week, (additional position training)|

NEW 2023-24: Gold National Teams
AVC would like to announce a fourth National team to its lineup. We currently offer Red, White and Blue and we couldn’t be more excited to announce Gold will be coming in the “23/24” season. AVC feels that the talent level and coaching have pushed us into a class of its own. Considering the success and competitive nature of the current American 1 players and staff, it can only make sense.
Gold and Blue teams will combine in training and tournament schedules just like our current Red/White teams to form a great gym culture and competitive environment AVC has made its trademark for several years now. Gold will play a similar tournament schedule to our current Blue program and train 4 days a week. Those four days will now include a positional, competition, tier training, as well as an individual team practice. Blue teams will now have a training partner, a competition partner, and we will now be adding coaches for all of those programs to participate in.
We would like to thank the dedicated professionals, staff members, volunteers, and most of all the players for making it possible to create another tier of national programming. Without those involved it just couldn’t work. Thank you AVC Nation!
Tuition price range
Regional (10s and 11s included): $1,200-$1,800
