High School Club


All players and coaches must fill out this JVA inusrance paperwork online BEFORE TRYOUTS!  Your daughter will be held from practices until this is completed!



High school club is a division of NIVA open to 9th-12th graders that want to continue to work on their volleyball skills in the off-season but do not wish to dedicate as much time and money to volleyball as the travel program requires.  

Once in 9th grade, only 3 players from a high school can be on a team in the offseason.  
Players in 9th-11th grade also cannot play for anyone that coaches at their high school.  
*12th graders do not count towards the rule of 3 or for playing for their high school coaches.

Below are some Q & A to help you understand more about our HS Club division:

How are teams picked?
Players are evaluated at tryouts and ranked according to skill, attitude and hustle.  Your grade does not matter and is not taken into account when teams are chosen.

We also have to pay attention to make sure each team gets all the positions they need to play and we don't have more than 3 girls from a high school.

Do you make cuts?
We haven't had to make cuts in the last 13 years.  We make every effort to find enough coaches for all girls to make a team.  The only time we would do that is if we have more girls than we have qualified coaches.

How many girls are on a team?
Our goal is 8-10 players but we can have up to 12 in order to make sure all girls have a spot.

Who picks the teams?
The high school club coaches pick the teams.  Team 1 coaches get their pick first of the top players they want and then team 2 and so on.

Who are the coaches?
We have college players, ex-club and travel players, local professional athletes and adults that play on travel volleyball teams.

Where do they practice?
All practices are at Elkhart Memorial HS

When do they practice?
Sundays 5-7PM
(except holidays/special events)

What's the club's policy on playing time?
At the high school level, we do not guarantee equal playing time but every girl will play in tournaments.  Players with the best attitude, hustle, skill and practice attendance will get the most playing time but coaches will make sure everyone gets playing experience.

What are the play dates?
January 12th (intra-club scrimmage & picture day)
January 19th, January 26th, February 16th, February 23rd, March 8th

Where do they play?
Teams will play locally at area high schools and colleges.  We use Memorial HS, Goshen College, Northridge HS, etc.

How many games do they play?
Generally teams will play 3 matches on a tournament day so they will get a minimum of 18 matches this season.

How do we know the playing schedule?
The schedule is posted each week by Wednesday evening before a power league day.  The schedule is posted on our website under the tab "Power League Info."  Your coach will also communicate the schedule to you/the players.

What is expected of the coaches?
NIVA expects each set of coaches to train the girls in all volleyball skills and help them grow their game.  They are expected to have practice plans that push the players while helping them love the game and enjoy their experience.  They are expected to make game-time decisions for the best of the team while also caring about each player's individual growth.

What is expected of the players?
NIVA and the coaches expect players to be at all practices and games.  If a player is going to miss, they should communicate that with their individual team coach.  Every effort should be made to be at practices and games.  If attendance is an issue, the coach(es) may reduce playing time to keep it fair for other players.

Players are expected to come to practice and games ready to listen to their coaches and work hard.  In order to grow as volleyball athletes, they have to learn new skills and push themselves outside of their current abilities.
