Coaches at this level may add extra practices if schedules and gym space allows to prepare for competition on the weekends. Training will still be the primary emphasis with a push on competing at a higher level. Teams may be placed in more competitive tournaments to help them learn the process of success against tougher competition. Competition will be designed to help teams learn to be successful as a team over individual success.

Travel teams (12U – 14U) will train two-three times a week of 2 – 2 ½ hours. They will primarily develop not only individual skills, but also a competitive nature on the court through tournaments. Most rosters will not exceed 10 players. Playing time is not guaranteed on these teams; however, it is in our interest to train each player equally. Although competing to win is part of the game, training is our mission. The focus will be on skill development first, with a small emphasis on team success. Teams will be based on grade instead of age and then their abilities. We will be providing two different levels for our travel teams. The two levels are based on what the team can commit to as a whole for the season and NOT necessarily ability. Some coaches may decide the team needs more training versus competition or vice versus based on the team’s ability as a whole. Our goal is to ensure there is improvement in each individual and team creating the best training and competitive schedule based on where each girl is at ability wise.

Uniform Package

Lil Mavs will be using Knoy Apparel, a local company, to provide our program shirts and uniforms. Gear Munciana, located in Muncie, IN, will provide the al a carte items to ensure each athlete has access to purchase proper equipment necessary for volleyball athletes. Each travel team will receive a tryout shirt to use for practices and 2 practice shirts as part of the club fees.

What is required: Each athlete must purchase a molten volleyball and 2 uniforms, 1 long sleeve and 1 short sleeve purchased for tournament playing. The girls are to bring their volleyball they purchase to each tournament to use for warm-ups and to practices to ensure we have enough to train each team. Instead of having it part of the club fees, it is separate to allow athletes to reuse what they purchased the previous season. Only NEW members of Lil Mavs will be required to make these purchases; however, any one can re-order these items each season.
