The Time is HERE!!!

WE ARE EXCITED!!! The upcoming club season is approaching and it is time to mark dates on your calendar. There are a few administrative things we need to handle before tryouts.

1.       If you are planning on attending a tryout; Please send us an email @ amleigh13@hotmail.com  and let us know. Any and all who want to tryout will be allowed, but we would like to have a preliminary head count. This will allow us to best format our tryout to get the most out of the time period.

2.       You must register your daughter with the USAV at their website https://webpoint.usavolleyball.org/ before attending. This is an absolute necessity. If you have not decided to commit to the UPSTATE family, please check the undecided box that relates to which club you are choosing. You will be required to associate your family with a club before the start of the season.

3.       DO NOT PAY THE $50 REGISTRATION FEE. As a member of Upstate we pay this fee for you; however, we do not control USAV transactions therefore we are not able to refund your money if you do pay, so DO NOT PAY THE $50 REGISTRATION FEE.

4.       Please print the registration confirmation and bring it in with you to the tryout for verification purposes.

5.   A non-refundable $50 deposit is required at the time of the tryout. If you choose Upstate this will go towards your account balance. 

6. Under "General Information" in the tool bar, there is a document named "Player Info Sheet For 2011-2012 Season." Please print a copy of this and bring it with you to your first tryout date. We will have copies available however this will allow us to speed up the registration process. 

7.       And most important; be prepared for an AWESOME learning experience through volleyball.

Horton plays well @ NGU tourney!!



Ashley Horton

Ashley Horton, Columbia College volleyball player, was a summer long participant in Upstate Volleyball Club’s summer training. We had the opportunity to see Ashley in action this past weekend at North Greenville University’s Palmetto Precious Metal’s Volleyball Invitational.  As a freshman, Ashley received ample playing time against both Tennessee Temple and Shaw University.  She had several kills and played well defensively throughout these matches. After the Shaw match I spoke with Ashley and asked how she was doing. She said she was adjusting to the college atmosphere well and was really enjoying herself. I also asked if she felt the summer training program helped her in preparation for her upcoming season. She replied “Absolutely.”

 

We in the Upstate family continue to wish Ashley good luck throughout her season!!!!

Exciting Times!!!



With the temperatures dropping and school back in full swing, the time for volleyball is now!! Coach Clay and I have been able to go out and see a couple of games and will hopefully make it to many more. We always appreciate the warm welcome we receive.  

With the upcoming club season quickly approaching, we are excited about what this season holds. We have seen unprecedented interest in UPSTATE Volleyball during this off season and coming off our best summer training in club history we believe the sky is the limit.

We are very excited to announce that we will be in the Greenville/Simpsonville market as well as Spartanburg this upcoming season. We are receiving emails with interest in our club daily and we know it is because of the GREAT families, athletes, and coaches that are associated with UPSTATE. We cannot "thank ya'll" enough. With all the interest, we are working diligently to lock in dates and get prices posted online. We ask for your continued patience as we expect to have this all completed no later than September, 13th.  

Our TENATIVE DATES FOR CLUB TRYOUTS are October 26th and 29th for all Non-Varsity athletes and November 9th, 11th, and 12th for all Varsity Athletes.

Again, thank you so much for being a part of the UPSTATE family.

Good Luck to All Upstate players this season!!



With the upcoming Season fastly approaching. We wanted to take this time to wish each and every player GOOD LUCK in the upcoming season. Although maybe LUCK is the wrong word to use. With all the hard work and dedication that our players have shown especially throughout the summer; we are confident that LUCK will have little to do with thier success! So we will wish you a GREAT INJURY FREE SEASON FILLED WITH TONS OF WINS.

We can't wait to come out and see ya'll play.

Coach Mosely, Coach Clay and Coach Amber

BEST SUMMER TRAIINING CLINICS IN CLUB HISTORY

With approx. 30 participants training, this has been our most productive summer yet for Upstate Volleyball Club.  We had 20 high schools and middle schools represented as these young athletes were motivated to improve in the area's of  conditioning, speed and vertical training as well as advancing in their volleyball skill. 

We at Upstate Volleyball Club are proud of their effort and for taking the challenge to "Experience The Upstate Difference"!

Looking forward to hearing great things during your school seasons....See you in October/November for Club Tryouts!
