About Regional Level Teams

SLAM Volleyball "Regional" level teams are perfect for the player who is just starting out and for seasoned players who are unable to make  the time commitment involved with the "Power" level teams. "Regional" level teams practice 1x per week and compete in 6 tournaments. At the Regional level we will field multiple teams per age division. These teams will be placed into the most appropriate club division in NERVA to challenge each particular team according to their needs and facilitate player development.
