Guidelines on the number and types of teams for the Maverick Volleyball Club

2014 / 09 / 01

The Maverick Volleyball Club has had a dramatic increase in the number of teams over the past 5 seasons where in the 2013/2014 season we had 22 teams competing for the Club. We believe that we could have had another 4 teams had we had available and qualified coaches to coach those additional teams.

The Club offers teams for both genders from 13U to 18U and offers two types of programs, High Performance and Competitive teams. High performance teams start at the 15U age group for girls and 16U age group for boys. We also run Competitive teams in parallel with the High Performance teams.

If everything remains constant the following will be the number, composition and type of team offered for each age group:

** Please note:

Plan for the types of teams stated above annually and changes in each specific year will be communicated during the try out period.

We may not offer the second, third or fourth team at all age groups. The chart below simply demonstrates what the Club will do in case there are up to four teams in a particular age group.

Legend:

HP 1: 

Depending on the number of athletes and the depth of talent in a particular birth year and the strength of the coaching staff the Club (Club Executive/Master Coaches) may:

·      Field a team of the top 10-12 athletes in the birth year.

o   Gap of experience between the 12th rated athlete and the 13th rated athlete is large

o   Only one experienced head coach is available for the age group

 

HP 1 Minus

Depending on the number of athletes and the depth of talent in a particular birth year and the strength of the coaching staff the Club (Club Executive/Master Coaches) may:

As an example:

·      20 athletes try out for the team and they are rated from 1 through 20

·      Two experienced head coaches and the gap of experience/skill between athletes rated 8 through 20 is marginal

·      Two teams will be formed comprising of 10 athletes per team

One team will have:

o   The top 7 athletes and the remaining 3 spots will be offered to athletes with high potential but have less experience.

o   For illustrative purposes only, this team will choose the 9th, 13th and 19th rated athlete

o   Allows the top 7 athletes to develop in a competitive environment

o   The remaining 3 players will be able to develop in the higher level practice environment with the hopes of expediting their progress/development

 

One team will have:

o   The remaining 10 athletes

o   For illustrative purposes, this team will be comprised of 8th, 10th, 11th, 12th and 14th through 18th and the 20th rated athlete

o   Allows athletes to better compete with athletes within their experience/skill level

 

HP 2:

Depending on the number of athletes and the depth of talent in a particular birth year and the strength of the coaching staff the Club (Club Executive/Master Coaches) may:

·      Field a team of the next rated 13-24 athletes in the birth year.

 

HP 2 Plus:

Depending on the number of athletes and the depth of talent in a particular birth year and the strength of the coaching staff the Club (Club Executive/Master Coaches) may:

·      Field a team of the athletes rated 9 through 12 in the birth year and the remaining spots will be offered to athletes with high potential but have less experience.

·      Allows the players who may not receive significant playing time on a HP 1 team to gain more experience. (i.e. those rated number 9 through 12 in the birth year)

COMP 1 and COMP 2:

Depending on the number of teams at the age group the teams will be selected based on ability and potential. With COMP 1 having more experienced athletes than COMP 2.

 

HP Lite:

Introduced at the 14U Girls and 15U Boys levels where athletes who demonstrate abilities and potential for the full HP program in the future.

 

COMP ABC/COMP ABCD:

Teams will be divided evenly so that player development and playing time could be maximized. Potential other criteria for selection may be geographic location of athletes (i.e. all live in Barrhaven and will practice in Barrhaven)
