Husky Volleyball has been around since 1999 and way back in 1999 we were in the regional finals our very first year (and 3 out of our first 4 seasons). Because boys start playing volleyball when they are older, we need your help in getting more younger players playing. Many of our players play just 1-2 years with us before they graduate. It’s up to all of you to help recruit your teammates (and especially the younger ones) to play club volleyball this year.

  • Boys practice twice a week, usually Sundays and one weekday but tournaments could be on either Saturday or Sunday (but usually Saturday, see Boys Schedule page for tentative dates)
  • Practice locations will be in Windsor or Meriden (sorry, you can’t request a site and will be assigned one)
  • Tryouts begin on November 17, 2013 (details to be announced). There may be earlier dates announced later, please sign up now to make sure you are notified!
  • Teams will be finalized in early December.
  • We can attempt to keep players together for carpool purposes but generally limit that number to 3 per team at the most, players must be roughly similar in skill based upon the coaches evaluation.
  • We will form as many teams as we can and are only limited by gym space and coaches
  • Practices are about 2 hours long each week
  • Teams are roughly chosen by ability and position, playing time is roughly equal
  • Players are expected to attend all practices and tournaments

What’s the Husky Volleyball Program Philosophy?

  • The outcome of the game is not the most important objective. The most important objective is that the players try to win and try their best. If they do their best, they will be successful, regardless of the outcome of the match.
  • Self-determination and teamwork! The players must learn from the beginning not to be misled by the “self” in self-determination. The team is the most important self-determining entity. The learned attitude of self-determination and it’s application in everyday life is one of the most valuable skills that can be taught in our program.
  • The players are the center of the team, not the coach. The players are taught that they make the choice to excel, but that that choice can’t be made on game day. The choice to excel is made in and out of practice every day.
