IMPORTANT TRYOUT INFORMATION
In order to try out for any KRVA USAV club volleyball team you MUST register with Keystone Region Volleyball Association. All players must have a KRVA membership to try out, however you do not need a Full membership just to try out. You can register and get a "tryout" Junior membership for $15. A Full membership costs $55.
When a player makes a team and commits to play they will need to upgrade the "tryout" membership to a full membership before Dec. 7, 2016. (Our first practice date)
To register go to… www.krva.org
Under “Juniors” click on “Member Registration” register and pay the Junior Tryout membership to KRVA - $15 (non-refundable) this fee is separate from the Quickset tryout fee)
*Developmental team members do not tryout therefore each player should register and get their full membership from the beginning.
QUICKSET VALUES each player's self-esteem, honesty, and spirit.
QUICKSET's VISION is to provide an optimum atmosphere for the development of young volleyball athletes and assist each player in becoming the best she can be.
QUICKSET's GOALS are to:
• Improve the volleyball skills and leadership of each team member through specialized instruction and competitive team play.
• Continue to raise the quality of girl's volleyball in the Lehigh Valley area - as evidenced by the continued success of Quickset players on their local high school teams.
• Provide specialized training opportunities and key competition exposure for athletes who are considering playing competitive volleyball in college.
• Promote good sportsmanship, responsibility, and the lifelong spirit of volleyball.
Quickset philosophy: Improve skills of the Lehigh Valley region’s players. This is done through a variety of drills at practice.
Playing time: Based on the value to the team at any given point. Players do not pay to play. Quickset limits the numbers on its teams to 9 or 10 to maximixe player time on the court but during matches there are other factors that enter into the decision as to whether a player actually plays.
a) Rotation – players are slotted into a certain rotation which is driven by the play of the teams and the flow of the match. There will be times when the rotation does not rotate in a way to allow all players their anticipated playing time. Coaches can make adjustment but usually this will mess up a rotation.
b) Playing level – some players just have bad days and thus the coach will make the necessary adjustments to allow the team to be successful.
c) Situational coaching: Using their knowledge of the player and the situation the team is in the coach will make a coaching decision based on that knowledge. At no time should a player take anything personally. Coaching is not an exact science thus all decisions should be accepted for what they are meant to achieve “success for the team”.
d) Position: players are selected to a team based on their ability at certain positions. We do not “load” a team with 5 outside hitters thus making it impossible to have each one get appropriate playing time at that position. Some players show during practice that they are able to handle multiple positions and some exhibit talent at one certain position. It is the hope that as the younger players mature and play high school ball that players will develop into multiple position players. In a perfect world that would mean all players but it is simply not going to happen. A player needs to come to an understanding of their own talent level and what position or positions they are best suited to play.
