16's - freshmen and sophomores
Teams are posted at the "team pages" tab above.
Central Indiana Volleyball Club, CIViC, was created nearly 20 years ago. During that time, CIViC has helped players from Allen, Carroll, Cass, Clinton, Fulton, Grant, Howard, Huntington, Madison, Miami, Tippecanoe, Wabash, White, and Whitley counties.
The intent of CIViC has always been to serve as a developmental tool for area volleyball players. When CIViC was first created, it was specifically to assist middle school, JV, and varsity players who simply wanted to get better. Within a year we formed an elite team to assist players who wanted the opportunity to play college volleyball. Since the creation of CIViC, we have helped 32 players go on to play college
A new club season is set to start with CIViC continuing in Flora.
1.) Carroll School Board & 2017 Cost
CIViC cost are going up and it might be more than just a little. The board wants to protect their new floor in the main gym and the field house. For 2017, it is my understanding that no outside groups will be allowed to use the main gym. Heck, they do not want inside groups other than basketball on it. Also, there is a plan to discourage outside groups from using the field house by increasing the cost. Last year we paid $1,800 in utilities. One rumor I am hearing is that number may triple. As it was explained to me, that works out to about $55 a kid. $55 does not sound that bad until you realize for the elementary families, their cost just increased 35%. The difference between $150 to play and $200 to play just might be a family affording to play. CIViC has never been about making money. It has been about growing the sport where Gretchen or I coached. But, I am not running CIViC to drain my checking account. Any way, just a warning, our cost will increase and we will be passing those along. I am very sorry.
2.) We will start loading information here soon after the high school season is completed.
Completed until high school season is over.
Cost for CIViC in 2017
We are just starting to work through the expenses for 2017 club season. We hope to post cost before the end of October, but we are waiting for some clarification by the school board
2015 COST 2016 COST w/ utilities
18's = $495 18's = $535
17's = $395 17's = $460
16's = $375 16's = $410
15's = $195 15's = $240
13's = $135 13's = $165
New 3rd/4th grade 10's = $150
A note of explanation: 1.) Every age group increased at least $5.00. We anticipate using the 3 courts in the new field-house a lot and are covering those utility cost. 2.) We hope to bump our coaching stipend up. They do a lot for too little. 3.) The 18's is a base cost. The Florida team(s) will incur additional expense. 4.) 17's will play outside the NCIPL once.
Payment Schedule for 2016
Full payment (the best from our point-of-view) is wonderful on the day of try-outs/signups. Half payment then (best maybe from your point-of-view) and the final payment is due prior to the 1st playdate (usually early March). A player will not be allowed to participate in match play until all fees are paid.
What is covered in the fees? Registration cost with AAU, JVA, and our local power league, the NCIPL. Most of those cost are going toward liability insurance. A uniform is included for the younger girls and two uniform tops for the high school girls. Spandex is also provided. The biggest share of the fees is allocated to paying our coaches. It is not enough, but we have to pay enough that they are not losing money! We also have some cost for using the gyms at Carroll and equipment use as we try to reinvest in the Carroll program after using balls, net systems, and video equipment
