Existing Teams with their own Practice Facility

  • An option is available for an existing team that practices in a location they have secured.  The cost of the practice facility is removed from the fee and is paid as a Team Fee rather than an individual player fee.  All other fees are included in the Team Fee paid by the Volunteer Coach who registers the team.

Volunteer Coach Team

  • Volunteer coaches have a varying level of skill knowledge and experience coaching teams and/or volleyball.  They will coach both practices and games*.
  • Volunteer coaches are not screened for knowledge or experience.  They may be a parent or school coach, however, this is not identified in their team registration.

*Volunteer Coach Team with LoneStar Professional Practice Coach

  • This is for pre-formed team with a Volunteer Coach for practices and games.  The LoneStar professional staff coach will train players and mentor volunteer coaches during practices only.
  • The cost is not included in the individual player registration fee.  The fee is separate and paid upfront by the Volunteer Coach once the staff coach is assigned.  The team will reimburse the Volunteer Coach equally.
