Club Fees for 2016-2017
This year, our Club Membership Base price (for our U13's, U14's, U15's, U16's, U17's & U18's teams) will be $2,300 per player.
Potentially, some of our younger players (on U11's, U12’s & U13’s teams) that cost may be slightly less at $2,000.00 per player (the actual cost will be determined after Tryouts and prior to Commitment night).
All participating members will need to make an Initial Payment in the amount of $600 on the night of commitment night. This year commitment night will be Monday, November 14, 2016. Actual times TBD.
The remaining balance of $1,900 will then be divided into 4 equal monthly payments in the amount of $425 each. Payments will be due on the 5th of each month starting with January 5th, followed by February 5th, March 5th and April 5th. (This year, the ability of making an online payment will be made much easier than ever. Although, all Credit Card payments will be subject to a $15 processing fee. Cash or Check payments can still be made in person, as they can be dropped off and placed inside our Payment Drop off Box inside our facility. Payments made in this form will not be subject to any additional processing fees.
If making a payment by check, please make all checks payable to "Xplosion Volleyball".
ADDITIONAL Terms and/or Special Arrangements can possibly be made if needed. To discuss other options, please contact Omar Rodriguez, the Director at 209.640.1442 to discuss further options.
What does your Club membership include and pay for?
Uniforms - A Uniform Package is included in the Club fee. Each player will receive a Uniform Package that consists of 2 jerseys (2 different colors), 1 spandex, a pair of socks, a set of knee pads, a backpack and a set of Warm-ups. It also includes all the costs for the necessary screen printing, lettering, numbering and embroidery as needed. It does NOT include Tennis Shoes. Additional items, such as an additional Spandex, socks, etc..... of our uniform package may be purchased separately, as our season begins.
Tournaments - Most of our teams will play in the following Tournaments:
*Cal-Kickoff (2-Day Tournament during Martin Luther King weekend, either Jan. 14th & 15th or 15th & 16th).
*President Tournament (3 -Day Tournament during Presidents weekend, Feb. 18th, 19th & 20th).
*Spring Classic (2-Day Tournament, March 4th & 5th).
*Far Westerns Qualifier in Reno! - (3 - Day Tournament. 12's, 13's, 14's & 15's will play April 22nd, 23rd & 24th. 16's, 17's & 18's will play April 28th, 29th & 30th.
League Play - Every Team will play in a League. Most of our teams will play in a League called Power League. Power League consists of a 2 day Qualifier, 3 individual play dates and then a 2 day Championship Tournament at the end of the Season. Premier League, is very similar, but has a 1 day Qualifier, 4 individual play dates and then a 2 day Championship. Both Power and Premier Leagues have a total of 7 days of playing. League play dates and locations will vary among the different age groups. These dates and locations will be posted as soon as possible and will be played throughout the entire season.
Practices - Each team will practice 2 hours a day, at least twice a week. Additional practices may be added at the coaches discretion and upon facility availability. All practices are expected to take place at our own Xplosion Training Facility located at 7505 Eleventh St. in Tracy, Ca. In the event that our facility becomes unavailable for some unforseen reason, practices would then be at various locations within Tracy City limits.
Practice schedules will be posted on our Website as soon as we can determine our actual teams. To give you an idea, most teams will practice either a Monday and Wednesday, or Tuesday and Thursday. Once we determine the best possible scenario for everyone, we will post them, and they will then most likely remain the same for the entire season. Although, please be aware that they can always change on a moments notice for one reason or other. If this happens, everyone will be notified immediately. Practices will begin right after the Thanksgiving break. Therefore, they shall practice approximately 2 to 3 weeks in December, break for Winter Holidays, and then resume the first week in January after New Years. Our practices will continue every week until our season ends. Most teams will end their Season by the second weekend in May
What else does it cover? - Coaches Salaries, our Training Facility (rent), Utilities, Training Equipment, Marketing, etc......
What is NOT included in the Base price?
Coaches Expenses - Coach’s expenses are expenses that are incurred additionally by our coaches as they attend the various tournaments. These expenses are items such as Overnight stays in Hotels, Parking, Bridge tolls, Meals we pay for when spending and overnight, etc... Since these costs can differ from team to team, these expenses are not included in the Club fees. These expenses will be added all up towards the end of the season and then divided by the number of participants from each team. Xplosion will pay for these expenses in advance and float these expenses until about 1 week prior to our teams departure to Reno in mid April. At that time, we will then need to collect these costs. To give you an idea of that total cost each player will have to pay, in previous years, our Coaches expense Fees have averaged about $150 per player for the entire season. Please be aware that with continuous rising costs in our economy, that number will most likely go up slightly this year.
