NIVA TRAVEL TEAM GENERAL INFORMATION

Interested in trying out for a limited or full travel team?

Here is some information on our program:

Our travel and limited travel programs are for girls and families that want to compete at an elite level and dedicate more time (and money) to the sport.  Players looking to play in college usually choose this division for the level of coaching and competition as well as the exposure to college coaches.

Girls on these teams practice 3x a week at various schools (usually in Penn and Elkhart district schools).  You get a monthly calendar with days and times for practices.  We try to stay consistent for teams throughout the season but are at the mercy of the schools at times and also want to be flexible around our players' schedules for school sports and events.  Coaches will try to adjust the practice calendar monthly around what girls can make and what's available for the schools.

Each team picks their own tournament schedule at their first team meeting (November 18th) but you can plan on 2 out of town tournaments a month.  These usually require hotel stays Friday and Saturday evening.  We do have group blocks for hotels but families are allowed to stay wherever they want at these tournaments...with family, other hotels, etc.  We do NOT require the girls stay together.  Families are responsible for the cost of getting there, hotel and food at the tournament on their own.

Limited travel teams start in December and run through the week before spring break.  Limited travel teams play a more local and regional travel schedule (Indiana, Illinois, Michigan, Ohio).  They will not play in any national qualifiers or bids.  Girls in limited travel still get the same access to recruiting services and training.

Full travel teams start in December and run through the end of June, with the final tournament being nationals.  These teams are for the best players in each age group with the goal of competing for a national championship in Indianapolis in late June/early July.  These teams will compete in national qualifiers and bid tournaments with the goal being the most exposure to college coaches and the best competition available.
