At Silverback Volleyball Club we are committed to keeping our costs low so that those who cannot afford to play elsewhere can still play competitive volleyball. Athletes will need to qualify in order to be eligible for a reduced rate and need-based scholarships. All others will split the season costs projected this year, 2023-24, to be between $715 and $834 per player. The exact amounts will be determined after tryouts on Nov. 11th.
EXAMPLES: A 14-member team pays a season total of $715 per player, to be paid in monthly installments of $143 for five months. A 12-member team pays a season total of $834 per player, to be paid in monthly installments of $167 for five months.
All payments will be due on the 1st of the month beginning December 1st, the last payment due will be April 1st. Qualifying athletes will have a case-by-case financial plan created at the beginning of the season. A detailed explanation of all fees will be made available to the team member's families and will be calculated to the penny. The cost includes uniforms/hoodies, RMR membership, RMR team fee, tournament entry fees, practice facility rentals, and lodging in Greeley for two nights for the Showdown tournament. Our coaches, staff, and board members are all VOLUNTEERS. The team will participate in several fundraisers throughout the season to raise funds for need-based scholarships and to pay forward this opportunity to future generations.
