The 13 year old team will begin practices Tuesday November 17th, with tournaments beginning in January and the season ending the first weekend of March. Practices will be twice a week, Tuesdays & Thursdays from 4-6pm, and you will compete in 6 tournaments.
The cost will be $750. This year all money will be paid online using this website. $500 is due prior to the first practice, with the $250 balance being due by December 15th. Players with a balance after December 15th will not be allowed to practice until balance is paid. Players with a remaining balance as of January 1st will be dropped from the team. We do not issue refunds, for any reason. Unlike previous years we will not be doing payments by checks and monthly billing. We are asking that you pay online. This will also allow families to simply payback their credit card as they are comfortable, and not have to come up with all the funds here at Christmas. If you are registering two siblings the system will automatically give a $300 discount for any family that registers 2 athletes online, as long as they register both of their daughters in the same session. If you would like to make payment In Full and want to use cash or check, please register online and in the check out process enter the code "Offline21". This will complete the registration process without asking for your credit card information, and you will not be charged the Processing Fee. Then drop off your payment to Jeff Pratt either at your first practice or at Jerry Jackson Realty.
In addition to Extreme Slam membership you will need to join USA Volleyball. You can visit www.DeltaVolleyball.net to join or renew your membership.
Your membership fee will cover your childs jersey, tournament entry fees, Coaching and Practice time. Remember NO Player is ever Guaranteed Any Playing Time at a tournament. All playing time is earned during practice and awarded by the Coach. We understand that sometimes this is frustrating to Parents. You feel like you paid for something that your child is not receiving. Practice is what you are paying for...Tournament Play is a reward. Parents, please be prepared to honor this policy. If you see that your child is not playing as much then please ask your child to talk to the Coach and see what steps she needs to take to earn additional playing time.
Extreme Slam would like to welcome the following girls to the
As you can see we decided that there were just too many girls that deserved to play that we kept all 12. We know that this is a large team, but with the Coaches that we have at 13's we feel that it is managable. This will mean that girls will constantly be competing for playing time, and playing time will be rewarded from effort and growth experienced during practice.
Practice times will be Tuesdays and Thursdays from 4 - 6 pm
PLEASE JOIN US TUESDAY NOVEMBER 10TH FROM 6:30 - 7:00 FOR THE ANNUAL PARENT/PLAYER TEAM MEETING.
