General Mini Club Information

Mini Club will not only help your player improve their volleyball techniques, but will also improve their overall athletic, social, and leadership skills in a fun and exciting way. Mini Club season is aimed at athletes of all skill levels who are not on a Varsity high school team roster. 

ST7 Volleyball rents court space at Faith Lutheran in Eustis for our mini club team practices. Faith Lutheran's address is 2727 S. Grove St. Eustis, FL 32726.

ST7 Mini Club teams will practice twice a week and compete in 4 tournaments. This schedule allows athletes to participate in both school volleyball and ST7 Mini Club at the same time with as few scheduling conflicts as possible. ST7 Mini Club teams are determined by age, skill level, and position played. ST7 Mini Club is designed to help each athlete reach the next level through expert coaching, practice, and experience.

ST7 Tryout Guidelines for Current ST7 Members

Current ST7 members must complete all of the tryout requirements found below with the exception of providing a copy of the birth certificate. We have retained a copy of any 2020- 2021 club member's birth certificate on file. ST7 reserves the right to refuse re-enrollment to athletes with poor discipline, attendance records, or conduct detrimental to the team. Re-enrollment may also be refused for athletes or parents/legal guardians who have demonstrated disharmony regarding the purpose, objectives, standards, policies, rules, or regulations of the club. In addition, athletes will not be re-enrolled until all financial obligations for the athlete or any immediate family member of the athlete are brought current. Any athlete who left a previous season without completing their financial obligations or the financial obligations of an immediate family member will have to pay any outstanding balance and pay at least half of the upcoming mini club season’s fees in order to be re-signed.
