Welcome to Eastview Juniors Volleyball!
Our teams practice twice each week for 1-1/2 to 2 hours on various days as needed in the evenings between 5:30pm and 10:00pm. The practice facilities we use are in Apple Valley, Eagan, Bloomington, and Burnsville. Some of our teams will practice on Wednesday evenings.
Included in our program are positional clinics for setters, outside hitters, middle hitters, and liberos. We are planning for three clinics at each specialty level. Our positional clinics are led by coaches that either work in our JO program or have high level experience for the position they are instructing.
The program fees for the 2018/2019 upcoming season will be $815 ($35 paid directly to NCR) for U12s and $900 - $1200 for U13s and older ($35 paid directly to NCR). The fees cover tournaments, clinics, coaching, 2 jerseys and a warm-up jacket. The fees are collected in four installments between November and March.
NEW for the 2018/19 Season - ELITE TEAMS
Our 14-1 team will be our first ELITE team and we will consider this option for our 13-1 and 15/16/17s teams. This will mean a more challenging competition schedule and may involve extending their seasons beyond April. The exact schedule and length of season will be determined after tryouts at team meetings. The program fees will potentially be increased from the base of $900 as needed to accommodate the extra costs associated with more competitive tournaments or extending the season beyond April. Please see our new Competition Matrix for ideas on what the season may look like for our teams.
We are excited that we have a lot of interest in our U15/16/17 age groups. We don't have enough resources to field two separate teams, but we are going to get creative and field a larger group of players across these age groups and have them compete as two teams. Come to our parent/player meeting on Thursday, November 8th at Scott Highland Middle School (in the cafeteria) 7:15-7:45pm to find out more. Then have your player stay for the Open Gym 8:00-9:30pm
We do NOT do individual fundraising with our club. Instead we host our Spring Dig tournaments in March. We require each player to provide 6 hours of volunteering at these tournaments. These hours can be fulfilled by the player and their parents or siblings age 12 and older.
For more information on our Winter JO program please contact Stephanie Uittenbogaard, Volleyball Program Director by phone at 612-849-0765 or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org
