Physical Forms:

You must have a DEKALB COUNTY ATHLETIC PARTICIPATION CONSENT FORM on file with the coach for each sport to participate in Dekalb sports. You will not be able to participate in the AMHS camp without and it’s a good idea to get it done now. Forms are valid for one year. Turn in to Coach Pfleger. Here’s the link:

General Volleyball Information

Volleyball is huge in this region of the country. Every high school and many middle schools have teams. It’s an affordable sport for schools so most colleges and universities have teams meaning there will be opportunities to play after high school and yes, many college scholarship chances as well. Here’s the general flow of volleyball. 

School Season – High school seasons are in the Fall running from August to the end of September or later depending on post-season tournaments. Arabia has Varsity and JV, and some schools carry a 9th grade team.  Practice is Monday through Friday after school. See below for match schedules. Players are expected to be at every practice and every match. 

As you probably know, youth sports are not inexpensive. For most every sport, Dekalb County pays for one varsity and one JV coach and little else. As such, parents must bear the other costs associated with competitive sports. Parents also comprise an integral part of the sports community. AMHS has a volleyball Booster Club and all parents are members.  Besides attending matches, parents help out with a number of tasks including arranging for/delivering food and beverages, organizing functions such as senior night and the banquet, helping collect and distribute funds, uniform ordering, concessions, check-in for camps, fundraising, calling lines during matches, and others as necessary. All parents are expected to contribute.

The cost of playing volleyball at AMHS is $250-$400 depending on JV/V and uniform pieces needed. This includes uniform, additional coaching, equipment, extra tournaments, pre-game meals, senior night, and the end of year banquet.

Club Season – As soon as school season is over various volleyball clubs start open gyms and then tryouts. Club volleyball (travel vball) is huge in this region. As an example, there were about 200 age 14 teams last year, with large numbers for each age from 12 to 18. Arabia players are encouraged but not required to play club volleyball. However, the strength of a program correlates well with how many players play volleyball year-round. It is also understood that families have limited resources and difficult decisions to make. There are many options for clubs/teams from playing only local tournaments to national teams that travel the country. Costs vary considerably. Club volleyball practices are typically 2-3 days a week starting end of November and run through end of April. Tournaments are weekends. 

Summer Opportunities There is an abundance of camps and clinics in the Atlanta area – volleyball is hot! Try googling Atlanta Volleyball.
