TEAM PLACEMENT NOTIFICATION:
Following the completion of Tryouts, invitations to join the team will be sent to players. Everyone should receive notification of placement within one week from the second Tryout session. In order to facilitate the notification process, it is requested that players either accept or reject their invitations within 24 hours of receiving this notification. If there are extenuating circumstances that prevent such a timely response, parents should contact the team coach to discuss any issues with their ability to make a prompt decision.

FINANCIAL COMMITMENT:
All club and team expense are totaled and divided by the number of players on the team to determine a per player amount for dues.
Dues per team will vary, but each team will be in the $400 to $550 range per player (based on an 11 player roster). This amount includes practice gym space, the above mentioned tournaments/leagues, AAU memberships, miscellaneous shared club expenses (e.g. insurance, website hosting, general business expenses, etc), and more. Specific team dues will be disclosed by each team prior Tryouts.
This amount does not include costs for uniforms for new players which would be an additional $125 that includes reversible uniform with player name on the back of the jersey plus a PVT logo Nike backpack personalized with player’s number.
Payments for player dues will be made in two installments:
• Installment # 1: due at the first practice = $300 + any uniform costs
• Installment # 2: due in the middle/end of the season = balance due

PLAYER COMMITMENT:
All players and parents should be aware of the commitment required for PV Thunder teams.
All PV Thunder teams are year-round teams and acceptance of a roster spot on a PV Thunder team is a one year commitment. The team will train twice a week for 90 minutes each session and will play games on select weekends throughout the year. The number of practices and games and the requirement for attendance at these team events will necessitate a dedicated effort on the part of all team players and their parents. If your child is selected and you cannot make such a commitment, please reconsider accepting a spot on the team.
If you do accept a spot on the team and cannot maintain your commitment to the team, the coach will limit your playing time to represent your level of commitment in all areas.
