Travel Team Information


Travel teams are available for girls ages 12-18 (girls as young as 10 can play on a 12 and under regional team if their skill level qualifies). Each year travel team tryouts will be held in late October for girls who are 15 and under and girls 16-18 will tryout the week immediately following the North Carolina high school state championships (generally the first or second week of November). Exact dates, times and locations will be posted on our website home page. 


Once tryouts are complete, offers will be made to each potential player by phone. Players will have until midnight on the commitment date to submit their commitment form and initial payment. The commitment date is determined each year by the USAV/Carolina Region office and will be posted with other tryout information on our website home page.


Travel team practices will begin the week following the USAV commitment deadline date. This will be posted on the website under teams. Each team will practice twice per week. Teams are divided into age brackets 12 and under through 18 and under. Each age bracket is broken into divisions (Platinum, Gold, Silver, Bronze, Copper, Nickel etc.). Once teams are formed, we will determine which division each team will play in.  

Tournaments begin the first week of January and continue into April. Please note if a Black Level Team qualifies for USAV Nationals, thier season will be extended into July. 


All players must have a current USAV membership to participate on any Carolina Storm team. This ensures that you are covered under the USAV’s liability insurance plan for all practices and tournaments. This membership fee is paid directly to the USAV and is not included in your club fees. 


Travel team fees cover the following: 

  • All USAV fees (except player membership fee)
  • All tournament entry fees
  • All player apparel
  • Coach’s stipends
  • Coach’s background checks
  • Coach’s accommodations 
  • Court and facilities rentals
  • Equipment usage and replacement costs
  • All administrative and operational costs

Due to the timing of the club's expenses, no refunds will be issued for any reason.

Additional expenses you may incur

There is a $25.00 tryout fee which is due upon registration. 

If you are new to club volleyball, you need to be aware that there are other expenses involved. Travel expenses such as fuel and dining out should be expected for all tournaments. Festival and National Tournaments require overnight accommodations. For these tournaments, the club secures blocks of rooms so that each family receives a discounted group rate.
