No Limits Club Volleyball is an opportunity for girls and boys ages 8-18 of varying abilities to develop their skills through training and competition. It is a select sport where you must attend a scheduled tryout and be chosen for a team based upon skill, athletic level and potential. Club volleyball is more competitive than league volleyball where anyone can sign up and play with others recreationally and socially depending on age requirements. No Limits Volleyball is a high level junior volleyball club sanctioned through USAV and AAU.
No Limits requires that everyone tryout in their predetermined age groups. Some players do play up, but at the request of No Limits Volleyball only. If you are unsure, sign up for the age group determined by your birthday and contact Jena Pierson at email@example.com. Age Classification for the 2022-2023 Season 18 and Under Division: Players who were born on or after July 1, 2004 OR Players who were born on or after July 1, 2003 and a high school student in the twelfth (12th) grade during some part of the current academic year

The tryout fee is $35 which covers court time, evaluators and a tryout shirt. Tryout fees for registrations submitted after early registration (ends June 15th, 2022) increase to $45. Tryout fee the day of tryouts will be $60. There are no refunds once registered.
Tryouts are generally in the month of July. However, we will hold supplemental tryouts if spots are available.
Tryouts will be held at Trinity Christian Center, 4416 Co. Rd. 540A, Lakeland, FL 33813
If you are unable to attend one or two of the tryout dates, you can still be considered for a team. Keep in mind that this does limit the opportunity for the athlete to be seen by the No Limits evaluators.
We typically place 9-12 players on a team. Factors that affect this determination include but are not limited to: age group, the level of talent, and the positional needs of a particular team.
The day after the last tryout date we will send an invitation for you to accept your spot on the team you have been selected to. You must accept your spot and pay the deposit before the time mentioned in the email or your spot may be given to an alternate athlete.
You must make your deposit ($350 for Navy teams, $300 for White and Orange teams) within 72 hours to lock in your spot on your team. You will then attend a uniform fitting in August so uniforms can be ordered. You will need to review and sign all paperwork provided by No Limits. You will attend a photo shoot in uniform with your team for team and individual pictures in October. You will register and complete all training classes for AAU and USAV by October 1, 2022.
No! Athletes can start at any age to compete for a spot on the 12U team.
Athletes should bring a refillable water bottle and wear appropriate volleyball attire. Please make sure your shorts cover your body appropriately.
Only players are allowed into the gym. We realize this is a stressful time, but we want the players and evaluators focused on the court and not distracted by family or friends off the court. There may be a situation where No Limits staff wants to discuss your player's options, so we encourage parents to stay close by so they can be reached by phone for a discussion if needed.
Player fees range($1250-$2500) depending on which team they are selected to. Fees cover the cost of gym rental, equipment, tournament entry fees, coaches salaries, player uniforms, administrative fees and printing costs. In addition to the player fee, players will have to register with AAU and/or USAV at their own expense depending on the team they are selected to.
Fees do not include airfare, hotels, food, transportation or shopping.
No Limits believes that athletes should participate on their ability to play, not their ability to pay. If the cost of club might be a prohibiting factor to your child, please contact us for options on sponsors and opportunities to earn money towards player fees. firstname.lastname@example.org
Schedules for the 2022-2023 won't be sanctioned or finalized until September/October of 2022. We will release a final tournament schedule for each of our teams by November 15th, 2022. Teams will participate in 7 tournaments. Teams that win a bid or partial bid to Nationals will have to pay an extra fee as practices will go into June of 2023.
In the past, most of the tournaments were in the Tampa/Orlando area. We normally played one Daytona tournament each year. For 2023 we are looking to take our Navy teams to Atlanta for an out of state qualifier and also considering attending AAU Nationals in Las Vegas for teams that qualify.
Some of the three day tournaments will require students to miss a day of school. This should not be more than two days and will be communicated far in advance so players can get their work and have an excused absence from school.
Teams will practice twice a week for two hours. Times can vary based on conflicts with gym scheduling or availability. Times are 5-7pm or 7-9pm.
We have 4 gyms that we use in South Lakeland and North Bartow. A full schedule will be provided in your player/team account in league apps.
All team practices and functions are mandatory. If you are sick let your coach know immediately. If you have a school function or other excused absence, you must let your coach know at least 72 hours in advance of the scheduled team practice or function.
Playing time is very important to us at No Limits. This is when players get to apply the skills they are taught in practice in a match situation. Every tournament is important for our teams as we are trying to increase our State and National rankings for Nationals. Your fees go toward practice time and instruction by qualified experienced coaches, NOT playing time in tournaments. Coaches are advised to give everyone an opportunity to contribute their individual skills and abilities to the team during pool play matches.
If you have an issue the first step is to encourage your child to communicate with their coach. If this does not resolve the situation, set up a meeting with the coach, player and parent. The final step is to set up a meeting with the club director.
Regardless of which step you are at, conversations with a coach during a practice or tournament are NOT allowed.
We are always looking for ways to get better. If there is a question you feel we should add to this page, please let us know.
