Fall Academy

    Fall Academy Details

    Our Fall Academy is an outstanding opportunity for players who are not currently playing for their school teams to get an introduction to Club Volleyball as part of a competitive volleyball team. Although other clubs are now beginning to offer fall training programs, what sets our Academy apart is COMPETITION.  Similar to club volleyball, players are put onto teams and trained as a team; in addition, we also have scrimmages and tournaments as part of the Academy. Players improve through team training (and learn the basics of team play) but they also get the opportunity to compete! This is the best way to prepare for club tryouts and to get a TOTAL fall training experience.

    Players in the 5th through 8th grades who participate in our Fall Academy will receive individual instruction, develop their skills, and participate in organized competition. The Academy begins in September and extends through the end of October — it concludes right before club volleyball tryouts.  This is a great preview to our NW Juniors VBC Program which begins with tryouts in November, and runs December through May or June.  At the conclusion of the Fall Academy season, players have the option of enrolling in one of our NW Juniors Volleyball Club teams or waiting until we begin short-season training again. The primary intent of this program is to prepare for an expanded club program, however participants will have options should they choose not to play club volleyball.

    We have room for up to 12 teams on the Eastside and 8 teams in the Northend. Registration is first come, first served until we fill all of our openings.  There will be two separate groups of play: 

    • Group 1 will be teams comprised of
      • All 8th graders, or
      • 7th and 8th graders, or
      • All 7th graders with experience
    • Group 2 will be teams comprised of
      • All 7th graders (no club experience?) or
      • 6th and 7th graders, or
      • All 6th graders, or
      • A combination of 5-7th graders

    We will use information provided on the registration forms as well as a skill assessment to assign players to teams, so please fill out registration forms completely.  We make every effort to keep athletes from the same school on the same team or maintain car pools.

    Through the NWJRS Elite, Northwest Juniors, and Fall Academy programs, the NW Volleyball Foundation is proud to serve over 300 female athletes each season! Please see our PROGRAMS  page  for more detailed information on our club program!

    DEADLINE FOR APPLICATIONS: 9/1/2018, or until filled. There is  a limited capacity; so a waiting list will be created once we have reached our maximum during the sign-up period. 

    *Note: we occasionally also accept 9th graders that do not make their high school team. We do offer HS training for those players, but sometimes we do not have enough players to train them separately so we include them in our Fall Academy to play with/against our 8th grade teams.

    USAV Membership & Insurance

    ALL PLAYERS MUST HAVE A USA VOLLEYBALL MEMBERSHIP. Membership costs are not included in the program fees. You will pay for your own membership when you register for USAV. There are three primary types of membership:

    1. If you played on a USA Volleyball club team during the 2018 season, your full junior membership is already secure through October 31st, 2018.  If you did not play for our Club NW Juniors during the 2018 season, please be sure to email us a copy of your membership card. If you don't have a copy of your membership, go to the USAV Membership Login Page and enter your personal Username and Password.  Once you are on your personal page, look to the left column, and click "Print Membership Card" and print that page.  That is your USAV Card.  Print out an extra copy for yourself and keep it with you... just in case.
    2. Fall League membership is available and valid thru October 31, 2018. This membership covers the athlete for the Fall Academy season and costs $10. 

    If you are securing a new membership, when selecting a club, you may either select "Northwest Juniors VBC" or “undecided” for club. If you select NWJRS, we will be able to see your membership in our club database. If you select "undecided", when you receive your confirmation email, please forward it to us at billing@volleyballnw.com  

    Please note that if you are trying out for a junior club in November (for the 2018-19 season) you will still need to secure a tryout membership. The membership you secure for Fall Academy is for the 2017-18 season and expires 10/31/18.
