In the 2019 club season the BBGC Crush volleyball program piloted a short season for a select/HP team at the 16U age. The purpose of this team was to allow players a choice of a short season, which concluded after NERVA I, which was the first weekend in March. Traditional teams both regional and HP compete in 5 NERVA tournaments with conclude the first weekend in May. HP teams also participate in 3, two to three day weekend tournaments.
For the 2020 season a 16U and 17U team will be offered for the Early season teams.
This team allowed for players to participate in HP volleyball, then their high schools spring sports seasons without conflict. These teams are dependent on having enough registrations and there will be a tryout. Players need to have skills to reflect a HP player.
The following tournaments were arranged in 2019 and it is expected that the 2020 schedule will be similar.
January Down east volleyball club invitational, one day tournament
January Winterfest Hartford 3 days
Feb. AAU 2 day tournament - Providence RI
Feb. Mizuno Boston - 3 day tournament
Puma Valentines Friendship tournament - one day
