Aftershock Pre-Tryout Clinic

This clinic precedes our 2021-2022 Tryouts and is an opportunity for junior girl athletes to brush up on their volleyball skill sets and help prepare them for our tryouts. It also gives our coaches a preview of your volleyball skills which will help them to place you on a team most suitable for you for the 2021-2022 season.

All girls are welcome, including girls who are brand new to volleyball. You do not need to commit to trying out for Aftershock to attend this clinic. It is open to all girls ages 10 to 18 regardless of your intent to tryout or not.

  • We want you to know that when you (the player) try out for Aftershock, we make a commitment to YOU that we will do our very best to place you on a team that is in alignment with your skill level and where you have the best chance to build your skills and achieve your goals, and that by doing so, you will have a more positive experience.

 

Other Information

Please be advised that current public health guidelines require masks for indoor settings. Since our tryouts will be held indoors, masks will be required for anyone entering the gym.

An optional informational meeting with the Club Director will be provided at each tryout approximately 15 minutes after the start of the tryout.

Member handbooks will also be available at tryouts, which includes the Fee Schedule, Competition Schedules, and information about the club and how we operate.

 

Player Sign-Ups and First Team Practice

Player sign-ups and the first team meeting and practice will take place on November 7 at Piner High School.

Coaches will inform their teams of the time for their practice and sign-up.

Players will be sized for uniforms at this practice and both players and parents will have a chance to meet their player’s coach, team-mates and fellow parents. Parents will also complete the Aftershock Sign-Up Packet and pay club fees for the year, either in full or via a payment plan. We accept personal checks, cash, money orders and cashier’s checks.

Return to Play Program – Session #2

We are continuing to offer an opportunity for female youth volleyball players to safely return to playing volleyball under public health and safety COVID protocols. This next session will involve more play time, scrimmages, and fun! We hope you can join us!

Who?

Girls ages 10 – 18. Beginners are welcome. No previous volleyball experience required.

What?

Following registration, we will send out an email to all participants with the dates and times for their practices and who their coaches will be.

Players can expect to spend about one third of the time doing drills and building skills, and two thirds of the time scrimmaging with other teams. Practice drills will focus on developing individual technical skills (serving, setting, digging, spiking, and blocking), team strategy, and conditioning your muscles for endurance.

We will be following the current Sonoma County health and safety protocols for team sports.

Space is limited, so register early to ensure your spot. We will be forming groups based on skill levels, ages, and positions to ensure a positive experience for the players.

We are aware that players may not have touched a volleyball in over a year. Please rest assured that players will receive instruction in the safe, caring, and nurturing environment that Aftershock is known for.

When?

  • July 6 – August 5, 2021
  • Tuesdays – Thursdays, between 5:30 and 9:00pm
  • Twice a week for 1-1/2 hours each practice

How?

Self Monitoring:

  • Participants will be expected to self-monitor for COVID symptoms.
  • Please stay home if you have any symptoms.
  • Let us know if you have contracted COVID, so we can initiate the contact tracing process.
  • Read the RETURN TO PLAY SAFETY PLAN.

On-Site Monitoring:

  • Temperatures will be taken at the door upon arrival to your clinic/practice session.
  • Players will sanitize their hands upon arrival (hand sanitizer will be provided) and can use the hand sanitizer as often as they wish.
  • Only 2 cohort teams per session. They will be separated by one court.
  • Balls and courts will be sanitized between sessions.
  • Face masks are required at all times.
  • Drills will be established to allow for distancing as much as possible.
  • Bring your own water, and do not share with others. This is a time when sharing is discouraged!
  • We’re very sorry but parents will not be permitted to be in the building to observe during this program. If your beginner player is somewhat shy, this may not be the best way to introduce them to the sport of club volleyball.

Program Location:

Northern California Volleyball Association (NCVA) Headquarters
5621 Skylane Blvd
Santa Rosa, CA 95403

Cost:

  • $200 for the 5-week program, due on or before the player’s first clinic.
