Frequently asked questions

What separates Bounce from the competition?

  1. BEING THE BEST OF THE BEST. We aren’t looking to have the most teams or the most players. Chicago Bounce VC looks for the top 20-24 players in all of Illinois to create an elite team of players.
  2. COACHING!!!  At the end of the day this is the most important factor when choosing a club.  Everyone has courts and volleyballs, but not everyone has the ELITE young coaches that we do.  All our coaches have played and continue to play at high levels so we can relate and relay our message/philosophy with simplicity.  ALL OF OUR COACHES are able to get on the floor and show the players certain skills and techniques to help them succeed.  In addition some clubs feel that tournaments every weekend are what kids want.   We believe kids need to be kids!  We will compete 2 weekends a month throughout the course of the season so that your children will still be able to enjoy a social life, succeed in school, and most importantly NOT BURN OUT!

Chicago Bounce is a player friendly club!  Whether you play multiple sports or not we don’t penalize kids for their other interests. 

where are we located?

We are located at Berto Center in Deerfield.  The Address is 550 Lake Cook Road. Deerfield, IL.

For any FEE related questions PLEASE CONTACT [email protected] or 847-791-1020


What’s included in the Fee?

The Fee covers Gym Rental, Tournament Fees, and Coaching and all gear.   There will be a separate fee for travel, transportation, food and lodging.

How many days a week do we practice?

We practice 3 days a week until tournaments start.  Once tournaments start we scale back to 2 days a week.

How many tournaments do you compete in during the season?

The kids will get a great opportunity to play in 7-9 tournaments depending on the team throughout the season.  We try to keep everything within an hour’s driving distance.

When do tournaments start and finish?

Typically, tournaments start at 8 AM.  The athlete will compete in a pool of 4 or 5 teams with the top 2 to 3 teams making playoffs.  We obviously want to be the last team in the Gym as we want to compete for tournament championships week in and week out.  Tournaments that start at 8 AM will finish anywhere between 2-6 PM.  Some tournaments do start at 2 PM.  Those generally finish around 7-9 PM

How does my athlete get to a tournament or practice?

It is the parents responsibility to drive their athlete to and from tournaments.  Unless the athlete has their license they hopefully will be able to provide themselves with transportation.  We highly encourage carpools!
