Premier Program

Scholastic/Collegiate Player Development

The Boys' Premier Program is designed for advanced players focused on excelling in their high school programs and have potential to play at the next level. The program is considered a travel program that provides strong coaching and competition against clubs playing in the Great Lakes and Badger regions. Premier teams will be ideal for multi-sport athletes. The Premier program will compete in 6 local tournaments (1 or 2 days) against other clubs from northern Illinois, southern Wisconsin and Iowa.

All players accepting spots in the Premier Program will also be required to compete in the Mizuno Boys' Showcase and USAV National Qualifier (St. Louis) at the end of the season.

Fundamental Player Development

Boys' HS Regional Teams are an ideal spring board for athletes that want to go on to play on their school teams or compete in more advanced travel team programs as they progress. Practices are spent working on individual skills with an emphasis on team play in a fun, positive environment. Regional teams compete against other Regional-based club programs at competitive events and do not travel overnight to regional events.

The Regional Program accepts all players (assuming we have the numbers to do so at tryouts) and tryouts are simply used to evaluate and group athletes by age and/or skill level. Regional Teams compete in 6 local tournaments played within 2 hours of Rockford.
