Why Choose Kairos?
Our 2018 Club Season will have three different programs (College Prep, High School Prep, & Youth Teams). Each program is designed to help players prepare for their next chapter in their volleyball careers. Please click below for more information on each program. We are also committed to keeping the club dues as low as we possibly can. All dollars paid by players via club dues go toward covering the cost of our club team programs (Coaching salary, Player memberships, Coach memberships, Team memberships, Tournament entry fees, Court rental, Uniform packages, & Office expenses) - it is our mission to offer the best training in the area at the lowest possible price that we can!
Great Staff: Our staff is trained together throughout the season to keep our coaches growing & improving. With our club's structure, every coach has the support and guidance of our full-time master coaches at every practice. This allows us to keep all coaches, teams, & players on the same page. This continuity has been a huge factor in our success training athletes!
Training: ALL of our players/teams are trained the exact same way, same duration, & with same amount of attention in each program.
Small Rosters: All of our teams will have 9 players on the roster. This will ensure every player has a role on the court!
Multi-Sport Athletes: We are committed to accommodating multi-sport athletes. We will do everything we can to work around High Sports schedules as long as the players are doing everything they can to attend practices/tournaments. However, we will not allow missing practices/tournaments for other Club sports.
In-Season Camps: We host camps during the club season with college coaches running them. These camps have been great for players to learn from other coaches & get exposure for recruiting. Examples of colleges we have had at camp in the past - Nebraska, Minnesota, Iowa, Iowa State, Louisville, Washington State, Auburn, Creighton, Wyoming, Wisconsin, South Dakota State, North Dakota, and others! We have also brought in Lloy Ball (4x Olympic Setter - 2008 Gold Medalist) the past three seasons and plan to do so again this year. Lloy runs a practice for our 15u-18u teams at no extra charge to our players!
Recruiting Help: We are the ONLY club in the area with a full-time Recruiting Coordinator. Max Curran will help work with all College Prep players (15u-18u) on educating families on the recruiting process and helps them implement recruiting strategies. Our players get help from Max year-round! This season ALL College Prep players will also receive a one-year subscription to volleyballrecruits.net included in their club dues. This is a great online tool to assist with the recruiting process. To learn more about Volleyball Recruits visit here: www.volleyballrecruits.net. We are very proud of our list of Alumni that have gone on to play in college - we currently have 31 Alums playing collegiately and 6 college grads! We are also very proud of our clubs ability to help prepare athletes for their freshman season of college - through the class of 2016, 70% of our Alumni saw varsity playing time their freshman year!
Adidas Sponsorship: Our club is sponsored by Adidas. They have made wonderful advancements in the sport of volleyball with their equipment and apparel. They are now the named sponsor for USA Volleyball! We are very proud to outfit our teams with Adidas gear. All players will have the ability to purchase Adidas gear (not included in their package) at a heavily discounted price on our online store.

How to get started....
Tryouts - First, you must register online for our tryouts. All of our teams are created through a tryout selection process. During tryouts, players are evaluated on volleyball skills, athletic testing, attitude, & coach-ability. To view the tryout schedule and/or register online visit our Tryouts Page.
Tryout Prep - We run Tryout Prep sessions before each age group's tryout. These Tryout Prep sessions are "practice runs" for players for actual tryouts. We do all the same testing in these sessions. That way the first time doing the tests, drills, & evaluations is not at actual tryouts. We highly recommend attending one or both of your age group's Tryout Prep sessions. Visit the Tryout Prep Page to view the schedule and register!
Can't Make Tryouts Due to a Conflict?
Just email firstname.lastname@example.org to request a make-up tryout. We will allow a limited number of players to attend Tryout Prep as their actual Tryout if they have a legitimate reason for not being able to attend Tryouts. Space is limited for Tryout Prep sessions, so these make-ups need to be approved by our staff!
After Tryouts........Then What?
Selection Process - Once tryouts are over, our staff will meet to go over all the evaluations for every player that attended tryouts. We will then form the teams in those age groups. Usually with-in 48 hours of the tryout, we will post the rosters of the teams formed. All players making a team on the rosters, will have 48 hours to accept or decline their position via an online form that will be emailed out.
Down Payment - Upon accepting your position online with one of our teams, you will need to pay your downpayment. Position acceptances are ONLY valid when accompanied by your down payment.
Down Payment amounts-
College Prep: $300
High School Prep: $300
Player/Parent Meetings - All players (and one parent) that make a team must attend a mandatory Player/Parent Meeting. At this meeting you will receive all the information for the season, go over policies, get fitted for Adidas gear, purchase extra Adidas gear, and turn in your club dues. At the Player/Parent Meeting we collect post-dated checks for your remaining club dues balance. Your remaining balance (total club dues minus down payment) can be split up into as many as three equal monthly payments in the form of post-dated checks. You will also have the ability to pay club dues in full via online acceptance form using a credit card.
