Parents & Spectators Corner

Whether you've played in the past or are brand-new to the sport, these resources will help you understand what you're watching much better.  The game has evolved since most of us would have played and the rule changes are significant.  If you're new to volleyball, a little information goes a long way in being able to support your player and get more enjoyment out of long tournament days.  


Volleyball for Parents is a great resource website for parents and other spectators who are learning or re-learning the game.  Check for rule changes, understand the rotations, line-up and systems, and learn about the specialized positions our daughters play.  


WHY CLUB VOLLEYBALL

Who can play?

Nationwide, club volleyball is an avenue for male and female players, age 10 (and even younger) to 18 to receive advanced training and competition on local, regional and national stages. Many volleyball clubs exist both locally and nationally, most composed of multiple teams.

POPULARITY:

Volleyball is the 3rd most popular sport for girls in high school with 404,000 girls on varsity level programs. The sport is also increasing for boys, with 42,000 boys playing at the varsity level in 22 states currently.

COST:

Club Volleyball costs will range, depending on program, travel, coaching staff and more. Costs typically include practice locations; tournament entry fees and lodging, if applicable; coaching stipends; equipment; and, overhead expenses. SBVBC is a non-profit that is run by a volunteer director and board.  Some clubs, as is the case with South Brooklyn VBC, may include virtually all costs in their fees. Others have additional or separate costs such as uniform fees, travel or club wear fees. Our club budget details are always available for review.

New friendships:

Bringing athletes together with similar goals from various schools makes friendships. The relationships that have been formed through practice and team play will be friendships that last a lifetime.

Tournament play:

Junior tournaments are where the hard practice pays off and many favorable memories are made. Understand that practice and training is where you receive the most instruction and experience. Tournament play is only a supplement to participating in Club. Club tournaments are usually far more competitive and more physically demanding than high school matches.

EXPOSURE TO COLLEGE RECRUITERS:

College coaches regularly attend Juniors tournaments, since they have the opportunity to watch a number of players in one location. For that reason, the majority of colleges now recruit directly from club programs.
