Girls Power League Teams
The Girls Power League teams’ season begins with tryouts in November and may run thru the first week in July. Depending upon the age and skill level of the team, practices will begin in late November or the beginning of December. Teams generally practice 2 to 3 times per week.
Teams will participate in 12 to 20 tournament dates depending on the team. Tournaments include NCVA Power League, California Kickoff and National Qualifier Tournament(s) where teams compete to earn bids to the Girls Junior National Championships.
We categorize our Power teams into two types: Competitive/Travel Power Teams and Regular Power teams. (Click here to see the slightly different standards regarding playing time.)
The Girls Premier League Program begins with tryouts in November; practices and tournaments run from December to early May. Teams practice twice per week and participate in the NCVA Premier League. The Premier League teams are ideal for players interested in playing competitive volleyball with a less extensive time and travel commitment.
All premier teams will play in the NCVA Premier League and may opt to do additional tournaments.
Sláinte Developmental Tournament Teams are formed during the winter season. Developmental Tournament Teams are ideal for beginning players who want to develop their skills and experience tournament competition. These teams practice from January thru the end of April and participate in 2-3 local tournaments.
Sláinte runs a developmental program for boys and girls called Rising Youth. Our Rising Youth program offers options in the fall (September – late November), winter/spring (January – April) and summer (June - July). Rising Youth teams are ideal for beginning players who want to develop their skills and experience competition but who are not ready for the commitment of playing on a Premier or Power team.
Team Signing Meeting is on November 12th and 13th. We require both a parent and the player to attend.
