NC Elite 2020-2021 Season Q & A

Q1:  Why has NC Elite decided to delay the start of the competitive club season?  It is increasingly clear that club and school volleyball will continue to be disrupted for the 2020-2021 seasons.  We believe that rushing (or accelerating) the 2020-2021 club season is misguided.  NC Elite is fortunate to be operationally, organizationally and financially stable, allowing us to make decisions based on what we feel is the safest and most responsible for the current health situation.  While all activity has associated risk, we remain committed to, and financially positioned to, make our decisions on training and competing based on what we feel is in the best interest of players, families, coaches, staff and the broader community, not leading with financially-based or financially-pressured decisions.  Given the litany of uncertainties going forward with regard to the pandemic (particularly during cold and flu season), tournament schedules, college recruiting schedules, school reopening, high school and middle school athletics and individual family financial standing, we have chosen to delay the formation of teams, and therefore any significant financial commitment by our families, until we can see a path forward with some certainty on deliverables in return for financial commitment.   We will continue to run safe training programs throughout the Fall and Winter, pandemic permitting, to allow athletes to continue with training in a way that accommodates the breadth of school and high school volleyball schedules and does not require an up-front significant financial commitment from parents.  See our UPDATES page for additional information.  

Q2:  I can see the High School season is November through January, but when is the Middle School season?  Middle School Volleyball Season dates have been moved in most counties to 2021.  Season dates have yet to be released.  NC Elite will continue to follow changes in the Middle School Volleyball schedules as we plan for the competitive club season.  

Q3:  What is registration-based team development?  NC Elite is offering players / player groups who want to be on a competitive club team, but are not yet training or interested in tryouts, to register with NC Elite and be assigned to a team of appropriate age and ability.  This is a great way for returning players to be placed on a team, as NC Elite coaches are already familiar with the players and their skill level.  For players interested in this option who are new to NC Elite, we are happy to discuss your past playing experience and offer an evaluation at one of our training programs.  Once teams are formed, and depending on the development level and age of the team, a practice schedule, tournament schedule and affiliated costs will be proposed.  Anticipated season start will be January 2021.  Registration will be posted for these teams on our website on October 1.  NC Elite will communicate with registered families as new registrations come in.  Teams will be finalized during the tryout period.  

Q4:  What is the Pre Season Evaluation Period?  The Pre Season Evaluation Period is the time during which players can be evaluated for registration-based teams.

Q5:  What teams will NC Elite be fielding?  Over NC Elite's 12 year history, we have offered Premier National, National, Regional+, Regional and Local teams.  Given the uncertainties heading into the 2020-2021 season, team offerings will be determined over the months leading into the tryout period.  Determinations will be made based on local, regional and national health conditions as well as the goals and preferences of the athletes and their families.  Program guides will be developed as the tryout period nears and as we develop registration-based teams.  NC Elite's long history of fielding teams in all age groups and at all levels positions us to quickly and assuredly manage rapid transition into the competitive season.  

Q6:  Who are the NC Elite Coaches?  Over the past year, optimizing the NC Elite Administrative, Leadership and Coaching Staff to align with the NC Elite core values and create a positive, competitive and learning environment has been a key strategic focus.  We began with building an new Administrative and LEADERSHIP TEAM last year, finalizing this initiative with the hiring of Haley Price as Director this summer.  Now we release for the 2020-2021 season the NC Elite Coaching Staff that we feel provides the organization with a team aligned with our core values and our measured approach to the upcoming season, also providing a strong foundation and culture for our future.  CLICK HERE for the NC Elite Coach Roster!  Specific team assignments for our coaches will be announced as we near team formation.

Q7:  Where is NC Elite operating?  NC Elite has now diversified our training facilities to de-risk against sole source access during the pandemic, and to expand our access to indoor and outdoor training facilities, as well as fitness and weight training facilities.  Currently, we are running outdoor activities and will continue to do so through October or until the beginning of high school training.   Indoor facilities include NetSports, Saint Mary's School, Meredith College.  Outdoor facilities include Saint Mary's School, Jaycee Park, Baileywick Park.  See our LOCATIONS page for more information.  

Q8:  Where can I register for NC Elite programs?  All open programs currently open are listed below with program details and registration links.  Upcoming programs will also be listed below as more information is available.  

Q9:  How can I stay updated on NC Elite programs?  You can register to receive NC Elite communications HERE.  Please be sure to monitor you spam folder or adjust your settings if you are new to NC Elite or SportsEngine, or if you feel you are not receiving regular updates.  Also, information is frequently updated on the NC Elite website, so check back often!

Q10:  How can a get additional information and guidance?  While we do not have all of the answers at this time given the uncertainties and purposeful delays in decision-making as we continue to monitor the health situation, additional questions can be asked by email info@ncelitevb.org.  (Be sure to check your spam folder and settings if you are awaiting a response!)
