HALF THE PRACTICES - HALF THE TOURNAMENTS - HALF THE COST

 

AP Lite is designed to benefit the multi-sport athlete which will allow players to balance other sports and academics while continuing to play longer than their school seasons. We understand that club can be a huge time and financial obligation and our goal is to provide every student athlete with an opportunity to participate. It also serves as an excellent entry program for girls just beginning their volleyball passion.

PRACTICE FACILITIES

  • AP Lite South/Central will practice at West Lake Athletic Center and St. Michaels Athletic Center
  • AP WilCo will practice at Round Rock Sports Center and Premier Athletic Center in Leander

PRACTICE/TOURNAMENTS 

  • Sunday practices begin in January
  • An additional weeknight practice is added February through April (Tues, Wed or Thurs)
  • 5-6 Tournaments begin in February until the end of April or first weekend in May

What Can I Expect at Tryouts?

14, 15, 16 and 17u Lite Program:

A 1 day tryout to evaluate and place girls on teams according to skill and position. Typically 2-3 teams are made at each age group depending on how many register. We try and find a place for everyone, however, it is possible not everyone makes a team.

10, 11, 12 and 13u Lite Program:

For the 13 and under programs, AP Lite offers an extended evaluation series. We know that at this age some girls have had minimal experience with the sport, mostly in recreational leagues. Their growth, once they begin proper training, is exponential. Tryouts also can be a very new and stressful experience; instead of evaluating the girls over a 1-2 day period, we host a 6 week pre-season practice/clinic to train, get to know them more personally and better place them on teams according to their skill level.

What does this mean for the first day of Tryouts ?
On day 1 we will run each participant through a series of physical testing and evaluate each player,  however, we will not place anyone on a designated team. Once evaluations are completed, we will offer contracts to everyone interested in playing on a 2018 club team. Contracts must be signed and deposits paid to participate in the 6 week program. There will be no fees for the clinic, they are included in your club dues. 

What is the evaluation schedule?

Please see WINTER CAMPS for details

Does my daughter have to make every pre-season practice?
We know there are circumstances and events that make it hard to attend every session. If your daughter has to miss, that is OK, however, the more times she attends, the better her skills will become and we will better evaluate her. 

What do we have to pay  to join?
The total due for the season is $1900. The deposit will be $475 due upon signing on November 4th (South) or 10th (WilCo).

See PAYMENT DETAILS for full season cost information

What do our dues cover?
Your dues cover all expenses for the club season, including backpack, socks, spandex, uniforms, practice shirts, tournament entry fees, coaches pay and facility fees. What they do not cover is food at tournaments or any travel expenses.

My daughter is younger than 11 years old can she tryout for 11u?
Yes, occasionally we have a 10u program, it just depends on how many tryout. Athletes can play up a division, but not down. Please check the age definitions to know which age group she falls under.

What is AP WilCo Lite versus AP Lite?
If you live in North Austin or Williamson County we are offering a Lite program for 10s, 11s, 12s, 13s and 14s. Practices will be at the Premier Athletic Complex and Round Rock Sports Center. AP Lite South/Central will practice at the SMACC & WACC.
