*number of tournament dates (tournaments are one or two-day tournaments on the weekends between January and March or April). One-day tournaments count as one tournament date, 2-day tournaments count as 2 tournament dates. We do between 9 and 11 tournament dates typically.
*We play local tournaments. However we will do one out-of-town tournament for some teams 14 and up (generally). Driving distance from KC about 3 hours. Branson, Springfield, Mo, Wichita, Ks, etc. Our region is very competitive so there's no need to travel great distances to play!
*We practice twice a week at New Century Fieldhouse in Gardner, KS. 2 -2 hr practices beginning in November. Most teams will practice from 4-6:00pm. A few teams will practice from 6:30-8:30pm. Days of practice will be either Mon/Wed or Tues/Thurs. The days and times will be determined by mid-Summer. In the off-season we offer Spring, Summer and Fall Academies for our players and others to keep improving their Volleyball skills.
*We have Premier and Select teams in the Club. We want to be competitive in whatever division we place our teams. If we feel a team is ready we will do Premier level. If we feel a team is a better fit at the Select level that is where we want them to be.
SKC has qualified coaches and a fun and competitive atmosphere! We look forward to working with our players and their families.
See you soon!
South KC is a Gold Standard Club!
The Gold Standard is intended to help foster a greater sense of purpose and acknowledgement of the importance of families and their respective players to the Heart of America USA Volleyball region, and clubs participating in the HOA sanctioned competition.
The program is designed to facilitate a process that clubs “voluntarily” commit to participate in, during the regularly scheduled junior club volleyball season. Those clubs meeting the standards outlined below are recognized as a “Gold Standard Club” and must demonstrate to the best of their ability to their adherence to the program requirements.
