Can I "play up" an age group? We recommend that you play at your grade level. However special circumstances might occur, please speak to Herman or Karen if you have questions.
Can I watch my child tryout? YES, parents are allowed to observe tryouts.
Can a player play other School Sports? At Performance Juniors, we believe as long as a player decides to play a school sport, it is up to the player to set her priorities. We expect players will do everything possible to fulfill her commitment to her Performance Juniors team. When a player misses an opportunity to practice, she falls behind. This affects performance, thus playing time. Club volleyball is a long season, and there have been many successful, multi-sport athletes.
Where do the teams practice? All teams practice at the Green Vale School. 250 VALENTINES LANE OLD BROOKVILLE, NY 11545
How do travel tournaments work ? All travel teams:
Each family is responsible to get their athlete to the tournament at the time set by the coach. Hotel arrangements will be organized by the club but are booked and paid for by the family. Athletes are required to stay with their team during the tournament but stay in hotel rooms with their family.
What is the hotel policy for overnight tournaments? All overnight tournaments are "stay and play" which means that in order to play in the tournament the club must stay in a tournament approved hotel. Performance Juniors will block rooms for families. Families must stay at the sanctioned hotel reserved by Performance Juniors.
