2019 Regional Team Offerings
For the 2019 season Southern Lakes will offer the opportunity for a Regional Level playing program in the U14 and above age groups. This program is intended to provide an option to players of high ability who are looking for an increased level of commitment in the sport. It is expected that these players will be playing volleyball as their primary commitment for the duration of the season. Regular practice attendance and increased play dates will be required for the success of the team. Player cuts will be made for the Regional commitment teams based on skill set and commitment level. Those players that are cut will be extended an invitation to the local team try-outs.
Players not selected for a Regional team, or who cannot fulfill the increased commitment level will be encouraged to attend placement evaluations for the LOCAL teams in mid – January 2019. More information will be available for this in the winter brochure. (The local program will offer select and recreational teams with a 4 local tournament playing schedule.)
