PREMIER TEAMS

The Excell STORM PREMIER Volleyball Teams

The Excell STORM PREMIER programs are designed to be highly competitive programs that compete for National Bids. The majority of the tournaments that the PREMIER teams will attend are college recruiting tournaments where athletes can be seen by Coaches from top College programs.  The PREMIER teams will attend 7 multi-day tournaments (3 of these are 3 day tournaments),  playing against other top National programs.  The PREMIER teams practice 3 days a week. The PREMIER teams will aim to keep 8 - 10 players (per team) and have the option of going to Nationals as the end of season.

TO REGISTER FOR PREMIER TEAM TRYOUTS

Please use the link below to register for PREMIER TEAM tryouts for the 2019 - 2020 season.  


Team Signing Day

Players will have the opportunity to be fitted for their individual gear/uniform packages at Team Signing evening.  We do not ask that players be fitted for their uniforms at tryouts, because we feel the focus of tryouts should be to properly evaluate the player's skill level.   Uniform sizing is done after positions have been accepted and the teams come together to have team signing and team pictures.

Team Signing Day is November 19, 2019.  Teams will come in waves ~ exact times will be  emailed to those who have accepted positions with Excell.
