One of the main objectives of Illinois Heat Volleyball is to help the athletes determine challenging but achievable goals for the season and to meet those goals. Players will have goals that vary from, learning to overhand serve to learning to jump serve, or from learning how to play volleyball to making the A-team at their school. Whatever the goal, the teams will be designed and coached to allow the players to meet those goals.
Some of the common complaints I've heard from volleyball players and parents are, they didn't get to go to "cool" tournaments and the communication isn't designed for people new to club ball.
Both of these are addressed by Illinois Heat. The National Level 18U, 17U, 16U, 15U, 14U, 13U, and 12U team(s) will all go to a minimum of one out of state tournament. A sample schedule will be available at tryouts.
Timely communication will come out through regular newsletters and parent meetings. All fees will be announced upfront so that parents can plan for the payment dates throughout the year.
