2. What makes Fire different? Working to change players from inside out. Building positive self-image, self esteem, character building….
Caring Club, Faith based, Christian values. Honest.
Working with families to BALANCE club volleyball and other things important to families.
Players should attend as many pre-tryouts as possible until they receive a verbal offer. If they receive a verbal offer then tryout day is merely a signing day/uniform and help fill other positions. If cannot attend and don’t have an offer, be sure to communicate to the coach and let them know you are interested in one of the remaining positions and you will be back on Sunday.
Ask coaches for feedback and players as well. Be prepared for honest answer.

6. Coaching Staff:
All are full time employees.
Players and coaches should not friend each other on FB. Can text, but need to have parent included on text message when possible. Communication should only be for logistical reasons, times, missing practices, etc…
Coaches are expected to communicate with you weekly once practices begin.
See parent/player guidelines on website about proper communication with coaches.
If a Coach becomes unavailable to attend practice/tournaments we will have a substitute coach fill in.
7. Practices: 2X per week All Teams
Players need to give notice if player is going to miss practice/tournament as soon as they are aware.
If a player misses practice/tournament they will have to earn their position back.
Players who are required to participate in school activities we work with you. Not penalized one reason for us to take 11players.
Practice schedules 11U-13U: M/W or T/Th. 6-8pm
14U-18U could be 6-8 OR 8-10pm M/W or T/Th.

What to expect at tournaments:
AM Wave usually starts at 8am. Be there by 7am, or PM wave usually starts at 2:30-3pm. Be there usually one hour before start. Play pools of 3-4 teams. Everyone plays each other depending on tourney depends on the bracket play on Sunday. Usually top two advance to Gold others to silver, bronze. Most tournaments are in Plano/Garland/Frisco/ Dallas Convention Center with a few few in Arlington. Hotels are not required for local tourneys. Some choose to stay close. Bring a comfortable chair, cooler with food.
Lone Star Tourney at Dallas Convention Center. 3 day tournament, players will miss one day of school.
Not required for player families to get hotel in Metroplex. That is optional. We will provide a note but some schools may not accept it.
Please don't coach from the sidelines, but be a parent love, encourage and watch through the eyes of a loving parent, not a coach. Let our coaches do what we've hired them to do.

10. Travel Tournaments
Chicago Qualifier- DO NOT book player hotels. For any of our travel tournaments until you know for sure that we are not required to utilize their housing. Players will miss school. We will provide you a note, but some schools may not accept it. The club will book hotels for all players ages 14 and Up and the team chaperone.. 12s and 13s attending this tournament will stay with parents.
OKC Tournament - Feel free to book hotels for yourself where ever you want but we will be playing in the downtown area. The club will book hotels for all players ages 14 and Up and the team chaperone.. 12s and 13s attending this tournament will stay with parents.
San Antonio Tournament - DO NOT book player hotels. For any of our travel tournaments until you know for sure that we are not required to utilize their housing. The club will book hotels for all players ages 14 and Up and the team chaperone.. 12s and 13s attending this tournament will stay with parents.
Each player will receive the maximum amount of touches, reps, and coaching at each and every practice. This is what we are paying for as parents of club volleyball players.
There will be times when a player does not get in the game or match as much as you think they need to. When this happens…
Have the player speak to the coach as we want our players to be able to speak to adults about issues they may be having. This is a life skill and one that we feel is important.
Play time will always be based on several factors:
Team 1st mentality
determined hard work
Playtime will not be equal as we have several players on each team playing in somewhat specific positions on the court.
Each player must earn her spot on the court.
Playtime in club volleyball is not up for discussion.
