AiR CiTY CHiCKS volleyball club

AiR CiTY CHiCKS CLUB TEAMS are "select" volleyball teams that are age-group based. Teams are chosen following tryouts that are held in late October/early November. We currently offer teams in the 11-and-under age group up through the 18-and-under age group. Practices for our CLUB volleyball teams begin in December and run thru mid-May or mid-June, depending on the team. Each team has a head and assistant coach. Costs to play on our CLUB teams range from approximately $700 up to $1700 - again, depending on team. For more detailed information about our CLUB TEAMS, CLICK HERE.


 

AiR CiTY CHiCKS TRAINING TEAMS are a program we unveiled last year - due to their success last year, we will be offering these again in the late spring, early fall and late fall of 2017. Our LATE SPRING session will be open to players who are CURRENTLY in grades 5-8; both of our FALL sessions will be open to players who will be in 5th-9th grade in the Fall of 2017. Our TRAiNiNG TEAMS will feature a block of 10 practices/scrimmages. Each practice session will include 60-90 minutes of skill instruction and drills along with 30-60 minutes of scrimmaging vs a common-skilled team. For more detailed information about our TRAINING TEAMS, CLICK HERE.


 

Our EARLY FALL CHiCKLETTE PROGRAM will feature 10 sessions of instructional volleyball for girls and boys who WILL BE in grades K-4 in the FALL of 2017. All of our CHiCKLETTE sessions will be 90 minutes in length and will be held for 10 dates across five weeks. Each CHiCKLETTES date will be limited to 20 players. Players will be able to register at discounted rates for 10 dates, 7 dates or 5 dates; or can sign up for single dates if space is available. Our goal is that the CHiCKLETTE program will help prepare younger players to eventually take the next step to our TRAINING TEAMS or CLUB TEAMS! These sessions will be similar to the YOUTH CLINICS we held on weekends this winter, but will offer players a more regular opportunity for instruction. Each CHiCKLETTES date will be run by two adult coaches from our CHiCKS' club coaching staff and possibly two high school aged group "assistant" coaches. For more detailed information about our CHiCKLETTES PROGRAM, CLICK HERE.


 

Our CHAMPiONSHiP SUMMER CAMPS offer players four consecutive days of volleyball instruction and game play for 3-4 hours per camp. Our 2017 SUMMER CAMPS will include a BEGINNER SESSION for girls & boys who WILL BE in K thru 4th grade in the fall of 2017; an INTERMEDIATE SESSION for beginner to intermediate girls & boys who WILL BE in 5th thru 9th grade in the fall of 2017; an INTERVANCED SESSION for intermediate to advanced level girls & boys who WILL BE in 6th or 7th grade in the fall of 2017; and an ADVANCED SESSION for experienced girls & boys who WILL BE in 8th or 9th grade in the fall of 2017.

Each clinic date is three hours in length and focuses on four basic volleyball skills as each group of coaches will run a 40-45 minute session on a skill and players will go thru four of these skill sessions during a clinic date. Players are grouped by grade. Each group of players will have at least two coaches from our CHiCKS' coaching staff as well as one or two high school players who will serve as court assistants.

TRAINING TEAMS
AiR CiTY CHiCKS TRAINING TEAMS are back! Our FALL training teams will be open to GIRLS who WILL BE in 5th thru 9th grade in the fall of 2017 and BOYS who WILL BE in 5th thru 8th grade in the fall. Training teams will feature a block of 10 practices/scrimmages. This program was formed to cater to players who are not able or ready to make a full committment to a club team as well as to club players who are looking to get additional practice & play between club seasons. Players from all schools and clubs are welcome to participate in our TRAiNiNG TEAMS programs!

Each practice session will include 60-90 minutes of skill instruction and drills along with 30-60 minutes of scrimmaging vs a common-skilled team. The skill instruction/drills will be much like a team practice and will also include play concepts such as serve receive, team offense and team defense. The scrimmage sessions will be a combination of team "wash drills" and actual scrimmages between the two teams.

Although this is a "pay to play" program, teams will be formed following an initial assessment on the first day and will be based on common skill levels as well as grade combinations in accordance to OHSAA regulations for 7th and 8th graders. Each team will be comprised of 10-12 players and will have one adult head coach and one adult or high school aged assistant coach for the 10-date session.

Teams will practice from either 5:30-7:30 pm or from 6:30-8:30 pm on the scheduled nights. ALL sessions will be held at South Metro Sports (10561 Success Lane; Centerville 45458).

COST for the TRAiNiNG TEAMS is $225 per player, per 10-date session

PLEASE NOTE: the registration fee for our TRAiNiNG TEAMS MUST BE PAID IN ADVANCE (after you register, you will be given instructions to MAIL a check to us to confirm your spot in the program).

CHiCKLETTES
Our CHiCKLETTES PROGRAM returns for TWO sessions: LATE SPRING and EARLY FALL. Each of these sessions will feature 10-dates of instructional volleyball for both girls and boys who ARE CURRENTLY in grades 1-4 for the SPRING session and who WILL BE in grades 1-5 in the FALL session. Each practice date will be 90 minutes in length and will be held for a total of 10 dates across five weeks. SPACE is LIMITED to 20 players for each date of the CHiCKLETTES' program. Players will be able to register at discounted rates for 10 dates, 7 dates or 5 dates; or can sign up for single dates as well.

Our goal is that the CHiCKLETTE program will help prepare younger players to eventually take the next step into our TRAINING TEAMS or CLUB TEAMS! The CHiCKLETTE sessions will be similar to the YOUTH CLINICS we hold on weekends, but will just offer players a more regular opportunity for instruction. Players will be instructed in the individual volleyball skills of serving, passing, setting, hitting and floor defense and will be given repetitive drill opportunities to practice these skills. Coaches will also introduce and try to facilitate cooperative play during game-like drills. Some sessions may also include basic strength, agility and conditioning elements.

Each CHiCKLETTES' date will be run by two coaches from our CHiCKS' club coaching staff and two high school aged group "assistant" coaches. All players who sign up for FIVE or more sessions PRIOR TO THE START of session #1, will receive a CHiCKLETTE T-SHIRT.

Once a date is FULL, we won't accept additional registrations for THAT date; but, players could still sign up for other dates that are open. Once a date is full, it will be indicated as such on this web page and will also be unavailable on the registration form.
