What is Elite Prospect Day?
Our Elite Prospect Day is an opportunity for interested athletes to be placed and commit to an elite team for the 2024 club season. This is open to current Dunes Volleyball Club athletes and ANY interested athletes regardless of previous club affiliation. This is a tryout day for athletes interested in being placed on an Elite (National or Semi Travel)team for this upcoming club season. Athletes aged 15-18 are invited to attend.

Why July for older players?
We want to provide our athletes and families the stability and comfort of knowing what the next club season will hold. Holding our Elite Prospect Day in July gives our athletes the ability to focus on their respective high school seasons and not worry about a club decision. This will also allow athletes to know their 2024 club team makeup and coaches before their school season officially begins to help minimize distractions and alleviate club recruiting during the school season.
July also creates an opportunity for our Dunes Volleyball Club athletes to be provided with additional college recruiting throughout the Fall to assist with college visits and the decision-making process. College recruiting timelines have changed and having the Fall to work on recruiting will be helpful before the NCAA Dead Period. We are here to help our Dunes Volleyball Club athletes every step of the way!
If you have any questions about the Dunes Volleyball Club Prospect Day, please contact us.

The Dunes Volleyball Club is a non-profit organization founded to improve youth volleyball players. Dunes Volleyball was founded in 1989 has established itself as a strong junior volleyball club. We take pride in this reputation and our coaches will continue to work hard and bring innovative training to our club players. We strive for coaches, athletes and parents to be committed to these efforts
We have 3 levels of teams
The elite travel season is established to cater to athletes that want to train, develop, and play a highly competitive season with others that share their same goals. They practice 2-3 days a week with their team, with either a tournament or a practice on the weekend. These teams will generally play 2-3 tournaments a month, with a number of out of state events. Most national teams end their season at AAU Nationals in Orlando, FL in June.
The region season is for athletes that want to train, develop, and play a committed shortened season. They will practice 2-3 days a week with either a practice or a tournament on the weekend. They will generally do a couple out of town tournaments in either Indiana , Michigan or Illinois.. Region teams compete mid-December through mid-May, and we aim to have teams at this level at every practice location.
Dunes Local Teams
Dunes Local Teams are for athletes that are not ready to make a six month commitment to volleyball, and often play other sports that make it difficult to do so. Local teams have 1-2 practices per week, with either a practice or tournament on Sundays. We offer two seasons, the first from mid-December through early March, and the second from mid-March through mid-May. Players may play in both sessions!
