TAMALES FAQ

WHERE DO TEAMS PRACTICE?

Our home facility is Cy Sports Center in Nixa. We also use James River Church in Ozark and Grace Church of the Nazarene in Springfield. 

How many tournaments do the teams play in?

Our 10's and 11's teams play in a total of 6-8 playing days and 12's-18's play in at least  10 total playing days. 

What is the cost?

We tailor each teams final fees to their desired season. We base this on the number of players on the team, tournament schedule, and amount of travel the team would like to see. Cost can be anywhere from $900-$2,000/player. 

how far does the team travel?

Local tournament are typically held in the Springfield, Joplin, Carl Junction, or Carthage area. Travel tournament are typically in Kansas City, St. Louis, or Arkansas, or Oklahome area. 

When are practices?

Most teams will practice on Monday and Wednesday or Tuesday and Thursday for 2 hours each. We try to stay away from Friday-Sunday practices to avoid tournament overlap. We try to accommodate and work around players/parents schedules as much as possible. 

When is season?

Season begins around the last week of November (after high school state is over) and ends anywhere from the middle of March-end of April. JGVC Nationals is held in June if a team qualifies. 

Does the fee have to be paid all at once?

No. We offer an installment plan where the fee is broken up into 4 separate payments for your convenience. In order to secure your daughters spot on the team following tryouts, a $300 deposit is required which is applied to your overall fee. First installment after the initial deposit is in December. All future payments are due on the 1st of the month. 

What's the difference between Tamales And tenacity?

Tamales VBC is our main club based in the Springfield/Nixa/Ozark area. Tenacity is an extension that we added in 2020 to Tamales that is based in the Branson area. We wanted to allow more opportunities and convenience to those that live further south. Both clubs are part of the HOA region and compete at a high level.
