How to Pick a Volleyball Club Team.

Club season is here again! to start looking for the best club for your skill level.
Although club is time-consuming and expensive, it is well-worth the effort in the long-run.
However, before selecting a club, consider the following advice.
If you are not sure which club you are going to play for, here are a few things you can do to ensure a successful and enjoyable club season, in selecting a club.
Here are some of the highly recommend questions to ask before selecting a club:
* What's the club philosophy?
* Do they have a discipline program?
* Is the club program too demanding, or too laid-back?
* Does the club train players to next higher level? or they have to recruit good players.
* Do the club team play the same position as you (ex. setter, libero)?
* How many years have the club been around?
* Does the club play everyone or do they play to win?
* Go to visit thie practice or take any of their training.
If you are fortunate enough to be offered a spot on more than one club team,
here are some questions to ask yourself:
1. Who are the players? Are they girls you will get along with?
2. How many players will be on the team? This will affect playing time.
3. How many players will be on the team that play your position/s? This too will affect playing time.
* Some final advice before selecting a Club:
1. As a player, Would you like to be pushed and be in a demanding program or more in a laid-back and just practice and play?
2. Attend the Players & Parents introduction meeting. It is the best place to get answers for any questions you may have and to understand the demands of the club. At the meeting, you will learn the expectations (for example: you play basketball or softball, and some of those practices conflict with your club practices. Will this be a problem? Or, what if you have homework or group projects at school; will you be allowed to miss practice?)
3. Can you afford a club team? How much will it cost? What are the volleyball club fees? What are the monthly payments? Is there a discount if you pay in full? What extra costs (travel, overnight lodging, food, etc.) when you go to away-tournaments?
4. If you are religious, does the club have practices or tournaments on your religious days? If so, can you compromise?
* Remember: hard work beats talent when talent fails to work hard.
