Why Should My daughter play club?
Club volleyball gives players an opportunity to play volleyball almost year around. It keeps them competitive during school off season and offers different levels of play to match commitment level. Club Volleyball has been known to help school volleyball programs grown and reach state titles! Playing in Jr. USA volleyball gives players the chance to play all over the country on a National Level. Players who love this game and want to play in college often play for national teams. Players looking to make their school teams or maybe varisty their freshman or sophomore year often play on regional teams. Either way their is a club and team for every commitment level and goal. Joining will give your daughter the opportunity to have fun doing what she enjoys while being trained by experienced and dedicated coaches in a positive environment.
What is the difference between Texas Synergy and other area volleyball programs?
A few things set us apart from the rest. We are a new, growing club and were created to provide athletes and families with quality and value in their club volleyball experience. We have a NORTH AND A SOUTH LOCATION at privately owned facilities. This allows us to offer more training as we don't have to go through scheduling with the city. Our focus on our players and helping them grow and reach their potential, while creating a fun positive, team/club synergy gives our members all the positive aspects of participating in club volleyball. Being a smaller club provides for an intimate, family like environment for our members. And allows for more attention and long term investment in your child's club career at every level! We assure all teams will achieve tournament success by everyone involved adhering to Texas Synergy's philosophy and staying committed to the process and the team.
How many teams will TSV form for the 2019-2020 season?
We are looking to form 10 teams for the 2019-2020 club season. Texas Synergy WILL NOT form teams for "good numbers" or the sake of having more teams. We believe in the integrity of our club and forming quality competitive teams. As our staff continues to grow, we hope to add more teams in the future allowing all players who wish to play the opportunity.Click here for team descriptions/levels.
Why are there multiple levels of teams(NATIONAL/REGIONAL/LOCAL)?
Each level has different criteria in commitment level, training schedule, cost, and traveling. This give players and families the opportunity to try out for the team level they are comfortable committing 110% to. All teams formed will have athletes as close or equal in skill level as possible. We believe our athletes need to be challenged and pushed in practices and training. To do so constructively, we have set standards for each team level. If chosen, your athlete will be placed on the team we feel will fit their current skill level, and potential for the season; insuring they will see growth while building self esteem and having a successful season.

Is playing time equal? How is playing time decided?
Texas Synergy Volleyball DOES NOT guarantee equal playing time! All playing time is earned at practice and in past tournament game play and soley at the Master or Head Coaches discretion! Equal playing time should not be expected in any competitive environment. However, we believe having well matched teams will alleviate most playing time issues. Our staff is trained to work with line ups, rotations, and sub patterns to maximize use of their roster. Putting players in positions to be able to positively contribute in game/tournament play. A list of player expectations will be given after try outs.
