Club Fees

SC Midlands believes in offering a high-quality program at the lowest price possible.  We strive to maintain and pay some of the very best coaches, have an abundance of equipment, and train at premier facilities.  We understand, however, that playing club can be expensive.  Thus, we offer payment plans and fundraising options. Additionally, consider the following when looking at our fees:
  • HOURS IN THE GYM: At SC Midlands, your child will spend many hours in the gym with their coaches and teams learning and improving.  The number of ball touches alone is priceless.  A one-hour private lesson could cost anywhere from $40 to $80 an hour depending on the club.  One three-day summer camp could cost $300 to $400.  Considering these prices, club is the most cost-effective way to get your child training in the sport over longer periods of time.
  • TOURNEY SCHEDULES: When looking at fees, consider the different tournament schedules.  Our teams play very competitive single and multiple day tournaments that may include Qualifiers, AAU, and USA Junior Olympic Nationals.  
  • COACHES ACCREDITATION: At SC Midlands, all coaches are certified through USA Volleyball.  Committed to providing the safest environment, USAV is the only program licensed to accredit volleyball coaches in the United States.  All coaches on our staff are required to enroll and obtain certification training.  Proper USAV certification is important for all who work with your children. Be sure to require this for all coaches who come in contact with your child.
  • INVESTMENT: You are investing in a long-term activity for your child.  You are allowing him/her to pursue advancement in volleyball in a fun, safe, and structured environment.  Our practice facility is an open, safe facility with a good, central location.  
  • ADVANCEMENT: Many top players in the area play some or all of their entire club careers years at SC Midlands where they receive guidance, training, exposure, and advancement leading to some of the highest levels.  We believe that there are lots of good programs that train college-bound athletes and that SC Midlands is one of the best in the state for providing training needed to play at the collegiate level.
  • PAYMENT PLANS: We have payment plans to assist all parents in involving their children in club.  Notice that costs vary by program.  The National Elite teams seeking qualification into USA Nationals are the highest teams in our club.  There are other levels though geared towards different budgets, and geared towards players with different levels and goals.  Regardless of level, we have payment plans to assist you in your child's investment into club.
