Frequently Asked Questions about Extreme Junior VBC
1. Who can play at Extreme Junior VBC?
Extreme Junior VBC is for any athlete wishing to gain quality volleyball instruction from knowledgeable coaches in a competitive setting. Currently we have teams for grades 3rd-12th. We are based in Branson, MO, but our players do not have to be from the Branson area.
2. Where and when are the practices?
All practices are usually held at Branson Schools. However, if a team has players from other schools and they are able to use their school's facilities we have used other facilities in the past also. Practice day/time varies depending on the month. During the winter, some weekend practices may be scheduled since facilities are limited during basketball season. In the spring, practices are normally on a weeknight from 6:00-8:00 PM.
3. How often do the team's practice and when do they start practicing?
Our teams practice 1-2 times per week (varies by team depending on each team's requests). Most practices start in December (again, depending on each team's individual requests).
4. How much are the season fees?
Our fees range from $600-$1200 depending on what the team elects to participate in. All expenses are included in individual fees with the exception of personal travel expenses (gas/hotel/food).
Typically the younger teams' fees are at the lower end, and they increase as they get older.
5. Do you offer any type of payment plan?
For the 2019-2020 season, all fees will be required to be paid by December 1, 2019. Fundraising options will be available.
6. How many teams did Extreme Junior VBC have last year, and is there more than 1 team per age division?
Extreme Junior VBC had 9 teams last season. Each team has between 8-10 players. We have had more than 1 team in our 11s, 12s, 13s, 14s, 15s, and 17s age divisions in the past, but will keep 2 teams for any age division that we have enough competitive players tryout.
7. When and where are the tournaments?
Tournaments are held on weekends (mainly Saturdays) during the months of December-April. Each team elects 4-8 tournaments to compete in during the season. Tournaments are mostly all-day events that start around 8:00 AM and end anywhere from 3:00 PM - 9:00 PM. Our teams usually elect to play in mainly local tournaments (in the Springfield, Branson, Republic area). Some of our teams elect to play in 1-3 away tournaments are well (Kansas or Arkansas area usually).
8. How do I pay?
Extreme Junior VBC accepts cash, checks, and Paypal. Payment can be made in person or mailed to our mailing address.
9. What is outdoor season and how do I sign up?
Extreme Junior VBC participates in Heart of America Outdoor season tournaments (sand). We hold open practices in Springfield, MO for any athletes interested in playing- some played with us during spring season and some are newcomers to our club. The players usually pick their partners (outdoor is teams of 2), but our coaching staff can help the girls find a partner if needed. Players are not required to play with Extreme Jr VBC during the spring to participate with us during outdoor season. HOA sanctioned tournaments are currently only being held in the Kansas City, MO area. Please email Kailey Bridges for more info @ ExtremeJuniorVolleyballClub@gmail.com.
