Woodlands WAVE has quickly become one of the most successful clubs in the Houston area! We were recently name the #1 club in the Houston area by Lonestarvolleyball.com for 2011! WAVE is in it's fifth year as a club for the 2012-2013 season. In 2011, we qualified 4 teams for USAV Junior Nationals in which our 15 UA team earned a bronze meal in the open division and our 14 UA team earned a bronze medal in the American division. Making WAVE the only club in Houston to earn two medals at Nationals! In 2012, we qualified six teams to USAV Junior Nationals, as well as sending additional teams to AAU Junior Nationals in Orlando - with two 5th place finishes, and an All American.
WAVE is a club that strives for excellence through hard work, commitment, and fun! Our main goal is to help girls succeed in volleyball to their fullest potential. Our coaches have combined decades of playing and coaching experience, and the WAVE coaching staff works hard to help our players improve and excel in all areas of the game. Whether your desire is to prepare for high school or for college, WAVE can help you meet your goals. We also have a full time recruiting coordinator that will help players who wish to play in college find scholarships. Last season we placed every senior who desired to play in a collegiate program and the majority of our current seniors have already committed to play in 2013, among many underclassmen that have committed to play at schools at the next level already!
Travel and Local Teams:
Our club teams will practice 2-3 times a week and will compete in 8-11 tournaments. Travel teams may travel out of state and/or within the state of Texas. Travel teams will compete in 2-3 Junior National Qualifiers. Local teams will compete in 8-10 tournaments around the Houston area. More information about our travel and local teams can be found on the "Teams" page.
We also have a division for those who are new to volleyball called the SMG Youth League (formerly developmental league). SMG is broken down into 10 week sessions and continues all year long. Our Sharks (5th and 6th graders) league will practice twice a week and our Guppies (1st-4th graders) will practice once a week - both groups will compete in 2-3 tournaments within each session. The league is registration only and there are no tryouts. We will take the first 36 players that sign up each session.

Jr. High League:
Our Jr. High League is for players who have some playing experience either through the developmental program or through school, but are not ready for the club commitment. Our league will teach players the skills needed to advance to the club level, and is also great for players who are playing other sports and still desire to improve on the volleyball court. Players will compete in 3 tournaments each season. We will take the first 36 players that sign up each session.

The cost for our volleyball programs varies depending on the program. Our SMG Youth (developmental) league is $375 for the Sharks (5th and 6th graders) season and $175 for the Guppies (1st-4th graders). Jr. High League ranges from $375-$850 per session depending on the season length. Club team costs range from $2400-$4400 depending on the team, age group, and commitment level. Our top club teams costs also include recruiting, strength and conditioning training, as well as admission to our annual Elite College Coaches camp in the summer. It is possible to get a sponsorship to help pay for the costs. We also do several fund-raisers each season including our annual Casino Night Fundraiser and a golf tournament to help players who need financial assistance.
