This 2020-2021 Season will not be like any other season. The pandemic has halted tournament play in California for the foreseeable future and CIF has postponed Girls High School volleyball to a December start date. Not to mention Early Signing without Tryouts and even a fledgling JVA league in our region. Volleyball Clubs are working with a lot of unknowns as we begin the 2020-2021 Girls Club Volleyball Season.
Here are the things NCVC does know:
1. NCVC will continue to be associated with USA Volleyball and participate under the NCVA (Northern California Volleyball Association). USAV has the highest level of competition and is the pipeline to the USA National Team. NCVC's mission is to train athletes to compete at the highest level possible and prepare them for the next level of volleyball play.
2. NCVC will be forming Girls Power Teams during the NCVA "Early Signing without Tryouts" window (August 29th - August 31st). These Teams will be Training Teams to begin with and will transition to full Team Play once tournament play is approved by the State and/or local officials as needed. Teams will have weekend practices October - December.
3. Practice schedules will be modified in January based on all factors known at that time (high school schedules, firm tournament schedules, etc). NCVC encourages players to participate in both Club and High School volleyball and we will be flexible to support participation in both.
4. NCVC strives to keep costs down and has always been an affordable choice in the Competitive Club Volleyball space. This year is challenging to budget because of the possibility of changes to the tournament (and practice schedules) due to the pandemic. We will continue to offer high quality training and tournament play at reasonable rates. We will begin with Girls Teams Training in Oct & Nov at $480 for 16 practice sessions. Payment will be due Aug 31st with Signing to secure your spot on our team. Uniform costs and the first formal Club Fee will be due November 1st so that we can enter teams into events and print uniforms in time for the first potential tournament dates. Tentative Tournament Schedule and Costs below.
5. NCVC will refund club fees paid on a prorated basis for any event that we must cancel as a Club. There is no refund for any training or tournament that a player misses due to their own circumstances.
We understand there may be more questions than answers at this time. We know this can be frustrating as players and parents try to make decisions for the season. NCVC is committed to providing the same high quality coaching and club support that we have been for nearly 15 years. We are ready to adapt and make this season a positive experience despite the challenges.
Please fill out the Tryout Form, at no cost, to be considered for an NCVC Girls Power Team for the 2020-2021 Season.
There will be no physical Tryout this season due to the pandemic. Players will be offered spots based on prior knowledge of players' skills and/or information collected in our Tryout Form.
NCVC will begin making selections and offering spots via email on August 29th per the new NCVA guidelines.
Players will receive an email on the status of their "Tryout" prior to the August 31st Signing Date. Alternates may be contacted after Signing if a spot becomes available.
