What is a South County "Open Team" in 2020-2021 season?
An Open team will have a minimum of 2 practices per week and compete both locally in New England and outside of New England. Last season our Open teams were scheduled to compete in 5 one day events and 5 multiday events, including one tournament outside of New England. The USAV and AAU volleyball schedules are still TBD. We will be building this tournament schedule as soon as we can for our open teams. My plan is to poll the teams once they are formed to determine their final tournament schedule. We ask families to stay flexible as we continue to gather information about our tournament season.
Open teams have access to Hudl - which gives families access to videos of their matches with the ability to create their own highlights. Coaches can also use Hudl to schedule remote film sessions with their teams.
Tuition for our Open teams will vary by the final tournament schedule. Families can expect to pay between $1800-$2500 depending on the tournament schedule. The tuition covers coaches pay, gym rentals, entry fees, uniform, coaches travel expenses, Hudl, etc. Families will be responsible to cover travel expenses for their athlete.
What is a South County Regional Team in 2020-2021?
A Regional team will practice 2 times per week and compete in local New England events. In the past, our regional teams have been schedule to compete in 4-5 one day events and an additional 1-3 multi-day events. The tuition for our Regional teams will depend on the eventual tournament schedule. Families can expect to pay between $1200-$1600 this season.
