Club Palatine is a competitive, fun boys volleyball club located in Palatine, Illinois. We train our players in all volleyball skills to allow their natural talents to surface. We believe that volleyball is an enjoyable, life-long sport and try to create an atmosphere to foster this.
For more information, please contact Kathy Rinella at Rinellak@comcast.net.
What distinguishes Club Palatine from other clubs is that we try to develop well rounded volleyball player who are able to play multiple positions. We limit our teams to 9 – 10 players to allow for more play time at the tournaments. Our coaching staff is very talented and filled with ex-players who love the game! The teams practice 2 times a week and the season runs from the middle of October until the 3rd week in February (32 or more practices). (Our season ends in time for the high school season that usually starts March 1.) The practices consist of learning all the basic skills of volleyball, offense and defensive positioning, specific skills and strategies for setters, middle hitters, liberos, outside hitters, plus a lot of time playing. The coaching staff carefully watch the players in the scrimmages and work one on one with players where needed. Our practices are in Palatine at Falcon Recreation Center and at St. Thomas of Villanova church. We rent gym space so sometimes we have to practice at a local school or another location in the Palatine area. Since we rent space, the practice times need to be flexible. Right now we expect to rent at Falcon Recreation Center and St. Thomas of Villanova. The practices times will be 1.5 hours or 2.0 hours sometime between 7:30 p.m. - 10 p.m. Sunday, Monday, Tuesday, Wed or Thursday. All tournaments are in the Chicagoland area and are usually on a Saturday or Sunday.
The cost is $1050 for the season and this includes all the practices, coaching and tournaments (usually 7). $350 is due at the time that your son accepts a player spot. We will inform the player that they are being offered a spot on Club Palatine at either the tryout or via email within 24 hours of the tryout. We hope that we can offer all the boys a spot, but since we rent space, our club is limited.
There is an additional fee of $70 for the jersey. We are a JVA registered club and we play in sanctioned tournaments in the Chicagoland area. If we have a talented team that is also interested in playing at the national level, we will work out the details to do this. We have done so in the past. There would be additional fees for the practices, tournament and travel if your team plays in addition to the 7 regular tournaments in the season.
Please note that we are no longer hosting girls teams.
