Can multi-sport athletes play on FPVC teams?
Absolutely YES. A number of multi-sport athletes play for us.
How many teams does FPVC have?
It always depends on the number of athletes who tryout for the club.Most years we have Power teams in all age groups and Area teams in all age groups; 18-under, 16-under, 15-under, 14-under, 13-under and 12-under.
Where do teams practice?
We practice at SASF and Wackford Community Center. Both facilities are in Elk Grove and are some of the nicest facilities in the Sacramento area.
How much do teams practice?
Teams practice twice a week and condition once a week. So, on average, teams are going 5 hours a week. This includes on court time plus weight and crossfit training. There are no additional charges required for weight and crossfit - costs are included in the dues. In addition, this training is supervised and conducted by WarriorZ coaches - experts in designing workouts specifically for training volleyball players.
How long is the season?
The season is approximately 6 months. We begin with tryouts in November. Then practices start in December. Our first tournament will be in January and most teams have 1-2 tournaments a month. Early May is usually the Regional Championships, and if teams qualify for Junior Nationals their season continues into late June, early July.
Tryout information will be posted in the Fall, but plan on the first or second weekend in November.
What does it cost?
Each team's dues depend primarily on the division played (Power vs Premier) and tournaments included. The calculation also considers the coach of the team and the number of players we expect to have on the team. Our dues are lower than other Sacramento area clubs and other nationally competitive clubs around the country when the amount of training time and the tournaments we attend is considered. TRAVEL EXPENSES ARE ADDITIONAL. Season fees range from $1,100-$2,200 a year/season.
