Joining the Club: Overview
Pace Bootlegger is a practice club, that puts most of its emphasis on training players and developing their volleyball skills. The club dedicates and conforms their practices to this philosophy. All players practice Monday and Wednesday (17’s and 18’s) Tuesday and Thurs (15’s and 16’s) or Friday and Sunday (13’s and 14’s) or Sunday (12’s). Teams will cross-train and overlap practices as well as practicing separate. Individual teams form twice a year-once at the beginning of the season and then again after the April regional’s tournament date.
In the early practice sessions, players are able to train with multiple teams, moving around based on skill level, commitment and team make-up. This allows for the coaching staff to provide plenty of opportunity for all of the players to develop in an environment that is conducive to their needs.
Ten teams in the program start out the year with a dedicated coaching staff. These teams may change depending on player commitment and coaching staff availability. Players within each of the teams practice, train and travel together.
The teams are:
17-1:Top Club Level, Nationally Ranked.
16-1:Top Club Level, Nationally Ranked.
15-1:Top Club Level, Skill and Team Development.
14-1:Top Club Level, Skill and Team Development.
13-1:Top Club Level, Skill and Team Development.
12-1:Top Club Level, Skill and Team Development.
Pace offers a number of different local tournaments for all other practice players wishing to compete in a few tournaments.
The first season ends around the first week in April after regionals, then all players and teams come back together as one unit. For two weeks, all players try-out again for travel teams that will train to compete at the U.S. Junior National Championships during the first week of July.
Players will have an opportunity to make one of these teams: 18-1 / 17-1 / 16-1 / 15-1 / 14-1 / 12-1. These teams will train a minimum of two days a week with a major focus on competing for a national championship. Players will train in strength and weight conditioning both as a team and on their own.
Pace Bootlegger teams are will known for being strong, athletic and well trained, physically as well as technically.
