Massachusetts Indoor Program
Element Athletics offers two indoor club programs for ages U12, U14, U16 and U19. The elite Travel Team program is offered for the indoor hard court season for those wanting to compete at a high level striving to develop a skill set necessary to compete at the National level. The Training Program offers training sessions for those not wanting to travel. Those participating in the indoor training sessions train weekly with the option to participate in local events at the end of the training period.
Element Athletics’ Indoor Travel Team program starts the first part of August with our tryouts. Tryouts draw in the best athletes from the region for national competition. Indoor is 6 v 6 on hard court with boards. The focus is on individual skills and a higher degree of team concepts. Teams attend Regional Tournaments, a National Indoor Qualifier, and the National Indoor Tournament competing against the best athletes in the country. Indoor registration occurs once a player is selected for an Travel Team program based on the tryout session. Players selected must have a valid USFH membership through April 2019.
The Indoor Training Program begins in November for those athletes looking to play in a small fast space while increasing their overall skills. Focus is on first touch and quick skills. Small group training with a low player to coach ratio provides for more individual instruction and gives the player the opportunity to improve their small game from beginning to end.
The core difference between the Travel Team and Training Program is the travel component.
ALL players interested in participating in the Travel Indoor program MUST attend tryouts in August. (Tryout fee of $45 for field players due at time of tryout).
Tryout Dates U16 August 13th, U14 & U12
August 14th and U19 August 15th.
