Rosemount Irish Elite is a Junior Olympic (JO) volleyball club that provides a competitive volleyball environment for girls ages 10 – 14 (approximately 4th thru 8th grades) within Rosemount and the surrounding communities. Rosemount Irish Elite is open to non-Rosemount High School (RHS) girls as well as girls within the RHS boundaries. Our program focuses on the development of fundamental volleyball skills, self-confidence, sportsmanship, discipline, respectful attitudes, leadership skills and competitive work ethics.
Irish Elite has up to 3 different calibers of teams at each age level depending on registration numbers; Elite, Competition, and Development. Each team will have 2 experienced coaches whereever possible to ensure proper development and skill progression. Teams participate in two 75 minute or longer practices per week. Some levels also have position specific training.
Parents and players must be committed to attending practices, various skill clinics and tournaments and be committed to developing their volleyball skills. The Rosemount JO Program is committed to quality instruction, enhanced level of competition, and a positive, respectful environment.
The JO Volleyball season begins in mid-November and runs through April or early May depending upon team placement.
Girls in 4th through 8th grade, must be 10 by 7/1/2021 and under 15 on 7/1/2021.
A tryout fee of $25 is collected at the time of registration. Once team placements have been made, then an additional season fee between $485 and $850 is required to be collected. For all players placed on a team, they will also be required to register with USAV, which is a $50 per player registration fee. All players placed on a team will also need to provide two checks - one check for $150 for fundraising and one check for $100 for volunteering. The checks will only be cashed for players that do not meet their fundraising and/or volunteer requirements.
