Anchorage Sports Impact Volleyball is our new youth volleyball program. The name is rooted in our mission to make an impact on our community and will be the foundation for everything we do!
We will be holding tryouts for the club volleyball season in November. Please read the following information carefully to determine if our club is right for your athlete.
First Look: November 19
Call Backs: November 26
at Wendler Middle School
Tryout Fee: $20
6-8th Grades: 4-6 pm
9-12th Grades: 6-8 pm
Our tryouts are a mini-clinic for your athlete. While they are there, coaches will teach technique, give feedback, and make sure no matter what your athlete walks away with more confidence and skills in volleyball.
Teams: We will select 2 middle school teams (14U and 13U) and 2 high school teams (17U and 16U). Levels of play will be determined based on the teams' skill and ability. Teams will have no more than 10 players to ensure maximum touches during practice, as well as playing time for all players on each team during tournaments.
Team Practice: Mandatory team practices will be held every Sunday at Wendler (excluding Winter Break) between 4 and 8 pm, depending on the team (2-3 hour sessions). Players will be allowed 2 unexcused absences. If you know you will have a recurring conflict with this time, please reconsider joining our club.
Individual Practice: We will hold an additional practice during the week on Tuesdays or Fridays. Please see the full practice schedule for detailed dates and times by team. These practices will focus on individual skills paired with 1v1, 1v2, 2v2, etc. mini-games. This method of practice promotes motor-skill development and has been proven to increase players' abilities in the shortest amount of time. Plus, it's a lot of fun for the kids!
Fees: $365* per player
Fees are used to purchase jerseys and a warm-up shirt (both kept by the athlete). The fees also cover our tournament entry fees, USAV Membership (required and serves as additional insurance for players and coaches), coaches' honorarium, gym rentals, and administrative costs.
*Fundraising & Sponsorship: We will be doing some fundraising to help cover start up costs. Players who do fundraising can earn credits to reduce their fees. For families needing more financial assistance, we will work with athletes to help find sponsors for their fees. Anchorage Sports is a 501(c)3 charitable organization and donations are tax deductible. More information will be available at tryouts.
Making an impact on the community.
All our coaches are USAV Impact & Safe Sport Certified. We are knowledgeable in volleyball instruction best practices and constantly expanding our volleyball knowledge base. We believe playing any team sport should be a transformational experience where athletes not only become better at their sport, but also learn to be better people along the way.
