GIRLS POWER LEAGUE TEAMS
The Girls Power League season begins with tryouts in November and runs thru May 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:
Sláinte Competitive/Travel Power Teams are recommended for players who have multiple years of experience, are fully committed to practices and tournaments, and are highly competitive. Playing time is not shared equally but based on performance at practices and tournaments. This evaluation is at the discretion of the coaching staff.
This is used to keep teams competitive and to achieve team goals. Coaches will provide a fair and impartial environment for each player to earn playing time. Playing time will not be discussed as it relates to another teammate. Players for this division will have the option to develop their player profiles by our coaching staff so that they can reach out to university recruits.
These competitive power teams will participate in NCVA Power League, National Qualifiers, and will practice 2-3 times a week.
Sláinte Power League Teams are recommended for players who have had previous club experience and are fully committed to practices and tournaments. These teams are a balance between learning and succeeding… Players will be allowed to participate in every tournament, however, playing time is not equally distributed. Coaches will balance players’ strength and weaknesses.
These teams will participate in NCVA Power League power, 1 National Qualifier, and will practice 2-3 times a week.
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 beginners/intermediate skills program for boys and girls called Rising Youth. Our Rising Youth Program is ideal for 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.
Our Rising Youth program offers options in:
