What is the difference between POWER vs PREMIER
-Power League is a more competitive league which travels far distances for one day tournaments, including out-of-state tournaments. Power clubs typical compete in Open or USA division at Qualifiers. There is no guaranteed playing time on these teams. Playing time is based on performance and is earned. The player fees are much higher than the premiere league.
-Premier League is competitive within our local area, traveling between one-half to 1 ½ hours from our practice area. Everyone gets to play. Playing time is based on performance but distributed more evenly to all the players.

Does every player get to play?
ATTACK believes in giving every player an opportunity to play in every tournament as long as each player fulfills their obligation to the team, which includes practice and game attendance, good academic grades, a positive attitude, on time payments, enthusiasm and effort at all times.
Can I go to tournaments with my child?
Yes! It is mandatory a parent and/or family member must attend all tournaments. For travelling to local tournaments, parents will be responsible for providing transportation and meals for their daughter(s). When our team travels out of town, all players and coaches will travel as a team, stay together as a team and eat meals as a team (unless otherwise informed by the club director).
What is your policy regarding parent involvement?
ATTACK encourages and welcomes parents to be involved and show the same level of commitment to the club as expected from the players. Getting your daughters to practices and tournaments on time, being supportive and upbeat as spectators for both wins and losses, helping with snacks, etc. is important to the success of any club and helps to make the club volleyball experience special. At the same time, helping your daughters understand the importance of following club rules and policies and allowing the coaches to do their jobs, make decisions and develop the team into a successful winning team, both on and off the court, is equally as important.
If a concern ever arises regarding practice or game issues with your daughter, please make an appointment to meet with us at an appropriate time. Due to the nature of everyone's enthusiasm and emotions at tournaments, parents will not be allowed to discuss an issue immediately prior to or directly after any game or tournament. The club director or head coach will be more than happy to discuss any concerns or issues you may have at almost any time, other than at games or tournaments.
"Being a part of the Attack Volleyball Club, our young athletes will receive excellent training, develop and increase their athletic skills, and enjoy success on the court." Coach Thompson
