Season Dates & Details for 15U-18U teams: Tryouts are held in late July and teams are formed. Then, players go to their high schools for their school season August-early November. Then the club teams will begin practices in late November (after conclusion of high school season) and tournaments take place December-June. Teams schedules and prices vary by age and skill; TBD.



Season Fees typically range between $3800-$5100 for an SCVA team, depending on age, number/type of tournaments, etc. Your fees will cover practice costs including gym rental, coaches wages, equipment, insurance and uniform package. If we field “local” HS-age teams (non-SCVA/travel tournaments), those team fees will be closer to $2800/season, to play in San Diego County at local tournaments).

Tryouts Fee ($45) is necessary to help cover the expenses of tryouts: extra coaches, planning, organization, renting gym time, etc… No extra charge for registering LATE, it will always be only $45

Cancellation: If tournaments are scheduled, entered, then canceled, your tournament fees will be refunded. If all club operations are shut down, then we will issue a prorated refund for gym/coaching costs for future/canceled practices, once it is determined that there is no possibility of making those up. Some club expenses are recurring and non-refundable so it will not be a full refund. No refunds or prorating for players missing tournaments, practices or events.
