COMMITMENT AND CLUB DUES
Unlike some other clubs out there, 253 Elite strives to keep the cost of playing club volleyball down so that more athletes are able to participate. Your dues cover uniforms, tournament entry fees, gym rental cost and coaching staff. There are no hidden fees. Our coaches share hotel rooms and they do not fly first class. We also do not take the high pressure sales approach other clubs have adopted. Instead, we encourage you and your daughter to find a club that fits your needs and the needs of your wallet, even if that is not 253. Why? Because we want your daughter to play volleyball, get better and have a positive experience. We know that happens when parents and children alike are happy, which is why we encourage you to make the best decision for your family. We hope that in your pursuit of club volleyball you will see that 253 is the place to be.
