Mini Club is for elementary and middle school players to train and continue to develop during the club off-season. Athletes also get prepared for club try outs immediately following mini season.
Mini Club offers 2 options:
Option 1: Mini Club League for developmental players, which includes 2 practices a week (1.5 hrs) and 2 home tournaments.
Option 2: Mini Club Elite for experienced and advanced players. This option is determined by coaches placement or try outs. Practices twice a week, 2 home tournaments, and 1 or 2 tampa tournaments
What is Mini Season?
Our Mini-Club Season is divided into two programs.
Mini-Club “League” Teams
Our Mini-Club League Program is a shorter version of our club season’s AAU Local League Program. This program is for the new or developing athlete, or the athlete that desires to learn the game of volleyball without a lot of travel and at a cheaper cost. The League teams will practice two times per week and participate in two developmentally appropriate home tournaments. Athletes receive developmentally appropriate training from our highly experienced and well educated coaching staff. The leaders of this programs are Chuck Bartges, Nick Behrens, Jeff Horr, and the rest of our coaching staff.
For the Mini-Club League athletes, there will be NO tryouts. Athletes will practice for 3-4 weeks and then will be placed on a team Suncoast feels they can have the most success and receive the most playing time.
The coast of this program is $260
The Saturday only option is $175
Mini-Club “Elite” Teams
Our Mini-Club Elite Program is a shorter version of our club seasons “Travel Team” programs. This program is for the intermediate-advanced level athlete desiring for a higher level of training and competition. Mini Club Elite teams will practice two times per week, attend our two local Mini-Club Tournaments and they may attend one or two travel tournaments in Tampa. While athletes that play on these teams are not guaranteed a position during club season, strong consideration will be given to those that have participated in our programs. Lead Coaches for the Mini-Club Elite teams will be coaches from our Elite Travel Teams; Bob and Joyce Parker, Coach Juan, Coach Ramon, Coach Nick, and the rest of our coaching staff.
Placement/try-outs for the Mini Club Elite teams will take place during the first week Mini Season practice. Those clinics are the Middle School Advanced Clinics and the Youth Back to School Clinics. Any athlete desiring to tryout should register online by signing into your account, going to shop, and then choosing “Mini-Club Elite Tryout”. There is NO Fee for evaluation. Anyone that cannot make either of the clinics, should email Jeff to set up an evaluation at firstname.lastname@example.org
The cost of this program is $360
The Saturday only option is $245
