The Excell STORM Premier programs are designed to be highly competitive programs where players will have exposure to top-tier competition and compete at some of the top levels of play at tournaments. Many of the tournaments that our 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 (2 of these tournaments are 3 day tournaments), playing against other top programs. The Premier Teams will practice 3 days a week and will aim to keep 8 - 10 players on their rosters.
The details below are preliminary for the 2022 - 2023 season. As we are awaiting final pricing from tournament hosts (as well as some official dates), we will continue to update this page with details as we receive them.

The 2021 - 2022 Premier fee was $2,850. The fee for the 2022 - 2023 season will be updated as soon as we have final pricing from tournament hosts. The Premier fee includes a three (3) days a week/two (2) hours training schedule. This team will aim to keep 8 -10 players to a roster to ensure everyone making the time and financial commitment receive playing time. Make sure to compare roster sizes, included gear and brand of gear, tournament schedules, weekly practice quantities and Coaches Bios when comparing club pricing. Payment plan will be available.
Payment Plan Details:
If selecting to pay by credit card or set up payment plan, you must do this online. You will be able to select 5 payments. First payment will be collected at time of registration (on or before Team Signing Day - in November 2022) and covers player's gear package. Remaining 4 payments will be drafted on 12/10, 1/10, 2/10 and 3/10. Payment Plan amount includes Sport Engine processing fees.
Players will have the opportunity to be fitted for their individual gear/uniform packages at Team Signing/Gear Sizing 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 will be announced after teams are formed. Teams will come in waves ~ exact times will be emailed to those who have accepted positions with Excell's Premier Teams.
The Excell Storm Fee Includes the following:
