WELCOME TO KATY UNITED STARLIGHTS

The Starlights program, here at Katy United, is a terrific fit for players who are seeking an elevated challenge in volleyball with hopes of joining a club or a junior high team in the next one to two years. This program host players ranging from 3rd – 6th grade (9-12yrs old) who are seeking to develop the necessary skills that are essential for continuing on to make our club teams here at Katy United, in addition to junior high school volleyball, which is extremely competitive in the Katy area.

In this program, no try-out is necessary, as every player who registers will make a team. Players train once per week and have an opportunity to participate in a number of weekend tournaments against local clubs throughout the city. Our skills training focuses on the specific needs of the individual player. During practice, coaches train their teams based on the needs of the team. Team practices include pick-up games against other Starlights teams, giving the players valuable court and game time experience. The Starlights program teaches players court discipline and focus without compromising a good time. We like to say we teach the FUNdamentals of volleyball. Come spend some time on our court and we know you’ll be pleased with the results.

We don’t need parent volunteers.  A portion of the fees you pay go towards your daughter’s coaches.  Coaches are USAV certified and have had background checks.  Coaches have SafeSport certification and are trained in Understanding their Responsibilities in Reporting as well as Education in Awareness of Emotional and Physical Misconduct of Players.

Practice Schedule

Our Starlights Tournament Sessions begin in October and practices are held once a week at our gym located at 1423 Vander Wilt Lane, Katy, Texas 77493

We practice on Fridays from 5:00pm to 7:00pm or 6:00pm to 8:00pm (depending on which team you make)

Each practice is designed around the USAV recommendations (1 hour skills training, 30 minutes of competition and 30 minutes of games).

During our skills training we teach the fundamentals on Serving, Passing, Setting and Hitting.

In addition to our practices, we offer an optional skill building session typically once per week on Sundays where girls can work on their skills with Coaches for 2 hours.  These sessions are separate from the Starlight Program and cost $20 for members and $25 for nonmembers.

In addition to a jersey, shorts and bag, our Starlights are issued practice shirts.  Girls need to come to practice with their own knee pads and a good pair of tennis shoes, along with a water bottle.

Tournament Sessions

Local Tournaments are played on weekend days and can last 5 to 6 hours.  Most tournaments fall on Sundays.  Tournaments have a small entry fee for parents and the venues provide concessions for players and spectators.

Girls are issued a jersey, shorts and bag for tournaments.

Each Starlight session (Fall, Winter, Spring) has three local area tournaments.  We compete against developmental teams from other local area clubs.

Girls will play with their age groups but may be asked to step up to play with older girls depending on their skill set.

For each 10 week session, girls will compete in 3 tournaments at either the  11U & 12U Divison
