With the state championship in the rearview and club tryouts beginning in earnest this week, I put my coaching brain in and wondered what a club team of uncommitted juniors would look like. It’s a fun task, and I have the enviable advantage of picking whomever from throughout the state, instead of having a limited number of kids to pick from in a gym. But, I’ve created a few rules for myself:

  • OH1 is the three-rotation hammer
  • OH2 is the six-rotation passing outside who makes few errors in the attack
  • MB1 is the middle next to the setter
  • MB2 is the middle next to the RS
  • Only one S; we’re running a 5-1
  • The two DS options, other than the libero, are subbed in for OH1 and RS
  • Both the high school and club (2020) are listed

Keep in mind, before you type in all caps at me, that this list is subjective. It’s my personal view of how I used to construct a club team. For the purposes of this exercise, I am only taking 9 on this roster. Normally, club coaches are obligated to take extra players for either revenue or practice reasons. Here
