Developmental Volleyball

Developmental and Club Prep Information for Summer 2020 Season

 TAV Houston Volleyball is all about FUN! Our Developmental Program introduces kids ages 5-14 to the amazing sport of volleyball. Using a variety of fundamental athletic development, skill development, games, and strategy, kids learn everything they need to begin their volleyball journey. Whether your goal is to tryout for your Jr High, High School, or club team, or just to find a fun activity, TAV Developmental is your one-stop shop. There are 3 different levels of the Developmental Program: Juniors, ages 5-7, Developmental ages 8-12, and Club Prep ages 8-14. There will be 4 sessions per year approximately 8 to 10 weeks in length. Don’t worry if a session has already begun, you can join anytime!

Developmental Juniors

This is the 1st step in the TAV Developmental Program. These sessions are designed for kids 5-7 years old with little to no previous volleyball experience. The Juniors will meet 1 day per week for 1 hour. Each session is built on encouraging a love for the game of volleyball in a fun, fast-paced learning environment. The focus is on individual skill development as well as fundamental athletic movements necessary for success on and off the volleyball court. Each participant will receive a t-shirt. Players should provide their own athletic shorts, knee pads, and athletic shoes. The Juniors will be evaluated upon request to move to the Developmental Program.

Our Summer session will be held mostly on Mondays, beginning June 8th and conclude Aug, 3rd 2020 from 5:30 - 6:30pm. The program will cost $160

Scheduled dates as follows: June 8th, 15th, 22nd, 29th, July 15th, 20th, 27th, August 3rd.



This is the second step in our TAV Developmental Program for kids that have completed at least 2 sessions of Developmental Juniors, or the 1st step for volleyball beginners ages 8 to 12. The developmental sessions are skill intensive training sessions designed to give each participant the skills necessary to be successful once placed in a team environment. Players will be instructed on passing, serve receive, serving, and setting. While the focus is on individual development, the kids will play in at least one tournament each session. (With the exception of the Summer session) Players will meet 2 times per week and all participants will receive a t-shirt.  Note: All players 13 and above MUST register for Club Prep.

Our Summer 2020 session will be held on Mondays and Wednesdays from 5:30 - 7 starting June 8th - August 5th, 2020. The program will be $400 and include a practice shirt. Payment plans will be available. Scheduled dates as follows: June 8th, 10th, 15th, 17th, 22nd, 24th, 29th, July 1st, 8th, 15th, 20th, 22nd, 27th, 29th, August 3rd, 5th.

TAV Houston Club Prep

This program has been created for kids 8 - 14 who are trying out for club volleyball this July for the very first time. Typically, the athletes that fall into this category are the players with 1 - 5 developmental volleyball sessions, or 1 - 2 sessions of Club Prep. While realizing that the Covid Pandemic disrupted the Spring session of Club Prep, this immersion has been created to shower the athletes in intense 2-hour trainings twice per week. Training will consist of 1 and a half hours of positional training each session to prepare the athletes specifically for the tryout process in July.  

     It is important for players/parents to understand the volleyball “league age”. An easy rule of thumb to determine your player’s league age is to take their age as of AUGUST 31st of 2020 and ADD 1 YEAR. So, a player who is only 9 as of July 11th tryout date, but turns 10 before Aug 31st, is actually trying out for 11’s. Additionally, it is important to remember that it is 11U, so players under the league age can tryout for 11s so long as they meet the skill criteria.

   Practices will be every Monday and Wednesday from 5:30 to 7:30 beginning June 8th and continue thru August 5th.  The cost for this program will be $480 and will include a practice shirt. A payment plan is available.

Scheduled dates as follows: June 8th, 10th, 15th, 17th, 22nd, 24th, 29th, July 1st, 8th, 15th, 20th, 22nd, 27th, 29th, August 3rd, 5th.
