                Club Origin
• In 2003, parents and coaches at Appleton
  East identified a need to create opportunities
  for committed Appleton East and other area
  volleyball players to get more “touches”
  during the off-season.
• Effective the 2011 club season, Appleton
  Excel has opened to include any and all
  athletes in the surrounding area.
• Identified six layers of a successful club
   –   Player passion
   –   Practice facilities
   –   Quality coaches
   –   Revenue
   –   Competent administration
   –   Parent support                        3
                  Excel Vision
It is our vision, through the joint efforts of parents, players,
    and coaches we will:

•   Develop and prepare athletes to play volleyball for area
    high schools.

•   Provide organized training, competition, recreation and
    education for athletes.

•   Provide an opportunity for girls to play at a high level of
    competition through in-state, regional, and national
    tournament play.

•   Help create a culture that is synonymous with excellence.

                 Offer Process
Offer Received
At the end of tryouts each time, girls may be offered a position for a
   team. If you do receive an offer:
• Offer sheet will contain information regarding what team, what
   coach, when offer expires and how to respond to the offer.
• 1st wave of offers expire on Nov. 18th at 9:01 pm and may, or may
   not, be extended again. Offers continue until Nov. 22nd at 6:00 pm.
•   Important to note that athletes are NOT allowed to accept a
   position for more than club team, 1st offer accepted is final. So,
   make decisions carefully.

Offer NOT Received
•   If an offer is not extended to an athlete at the end of a tryout, it
    DOES NOT mean that an offer will not be extended.
•   As athletes decline offers, coaches will move to make other offers to
    athletes via telephone.
•   As this process can be lengthy and frustrating, Appleton Excel will
    update our website with information on a regular basis during tryout
•   Athletes will also be given an informational flyer at the end of tryouts
    to help them through this process.                                 20
