Our High Performance program, one of the most competitive in New England, comprises 1-5 teams at each age group from middle school through seniors

Our teams are the top ranked in Connecticut (usually our teams ranked 2nd, 3rd and 4th are ranked higher than the top team on other area clubs). In 2023 Husky Volleyball sent 10 teams to one of the national championships (USA Volleyball or AAU)

Are you new to Husky and worried about being overlooked? Don't be, we give all players that attend our tryouts a fair opportunity to be evaluated and selected.

Our tryouts are designed to evaluate every player on objective standards (vertical jump, touch, scores assigned due to proficiency in passing, setting, serviing) and subjective standards (hustle, leadership, court sense). We consider all these items prior to selecting our teams.

Each team represents a different commitment level (and travel burden) classified by:

  • National (highest commitment, travels around the country, season runs until late June / early July)
  • Northeast (very high commitment, travels as far as Philadelphia, season runs until early May)
  • New England (high commitment, travel is in New England only, season runs until early May)

It is possible that we could have more than one team at any given level (so we have had seasons with 2 "17 National" teams or 2 "16 New England" teams). We will field as many teams at a level as we feel can be competitive. 

  • It’s critical to your development to play against tough competition! All of our teams play against an appropriate but challenging level of opponents. You’ll find that Husky teams played in more high level tournaments than all of the other Connecticut clubs combined!
  • Players are expected to attend all practices and tournaments (as practically possible). We do understand that there can be some conflicts, but we expect that your volleyball team will be your 2nd priority behind school work if you are on an HP team.
  • If you have any further questions, please check out our FAQ.
