Elite Teams

We will form Elite Teams beginning with 15U and going through 18U.  The Elite teams will attend some great tournaments like our higher teams, but the season will end in April.  Players will receive skill-specific training and participate in tournaments both in-state and out-of-state!  Teams will practice two times per week.  Here are some other benefits of playing for an Elite Team at SC Midlands:
  • FULL USA VOLLEYBALL MEMBERSHIPS: SC Midlands is proudly returning to both USA Volleyball and the Palmetto Region in 2018! This means that SC Midlands will continue as FULL fledged supporters of USA Volleyball! USA Volleyball is the organizing body for High Performance Camps and the United States Olympic Men and Women’s Volleyball Teams.  Our teams are automatically invited into the Palmetto Region USA State Championships! This makes it a win-win as we compete in SC’s officially sanctioned USA State Championship featuring 25-30 plus clubs. 
  • USA VOLLEYBALL NATIONAL BIDS: Because of our invitation to the Palmetto Regional State Championships, SC Midlands teams have a chance to win USA Volleyball Junior Olympic National Championship bids in EVERY age division! Imagine winning a National bid and representing the wonderful state of South Carolina! We’ve done it before! Let’s do it again!
  • HIGH LEVEL COMPETITION FOR ATHLETES: SC Midlands Volleyball believes in entering its top teams in high level tournaments.  We will travel to Virginia, North Carolina, Georgia, and play in South Carolina.  College bound athletes gain exposure to recruiters and competition in different arenas. 
  • TRAVEL BENEFITS: Aside from exposure to a wide variety of college coaches and showcases, SC Midlands families benefit by visiting different places (like Richmond, Atlanta, Charlotte, and Orlando).  Although we play locally as well, SC Midlands National Elite Team tournaments are specifically chosen for the exposure, quality, and diversity of competition.
