Elite / Premier Programs

Select Program

Please use the chart below to review a comparison of each of our club programs. We realize that there are many options for families in club volleyball. It is important that you take the time to compare each program and understand how to compare our programs to other clubs. For instance, what one club calls “Travel” may be the same as our “Select” program. What another club calls “Non-Travel” may be the same as our “Select” program. Since there is no mandated system, each club is free to make their programs as they see fit. Please contact us if you have any questions.
