NW Juniors Fall Programs

We offer TWO Fall programs.

  1. Fall Academy - Team based training [LINK
    1. This is for athletes in the 5-8th grades who have previous team experience and have a basic understanding of 6 v 6 team-based game play. Serve-receive, offense, team defense, etc. Players are placed onto teams and trained as a team. Individual skill building will be done within a team concept. 
  2. Fall Training - Individual skill building [LINK]
    1. This is primarily for athletes Grades 9-12 new to volleyball who want to improve their individual skills before being placed on a team and/or before trying out for one of our teams in the winter. We have two 4-week sessions available.
    2. For those that enroll in both sessions, we will begin to introduce team concepts in the second session.
    3. Intermediate athletes can also register for Fall Training if they want to work specifically on their individual skills. If we get enough enrollments, intermediate athletes will be in a seperate group. We have scheduled Fall training on opposite days of our Northend Fall Academy for those that want to do both. 

2021 Fall Academy: Team Based Training

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. Those that are playing Junior HS volleyball can also enroll in Fall Academy - there are typically a very limited number of conflicts. 

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 skill 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.

Through NW Juniors Elite, Northwest Juniors, Fall Academy, and Beach Club programs, the NW Volleyball Foundation is proud to serve over 500 female athletes each season! Please see our PROGRAMS  page  for more detailed information on our club program!

Registration is first come, first served until we fill all of our openings.

We will use information provided on the registration forms to create 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. But we also want to make sure players are at the proper level so they develop at the pace that is right for their level of play.

DEADLINE FOR APPLICATIONS: 8/29/2021, or until filled. There is 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 are not playing HS volleyball or do not make their high school team. They will be accepted first come first served on our 8th grade teams. If a player is entering 9th grade and wants to be considered for either of our Fall programs, they must e-mail info@volleyballnw.com first for approval before registering.

TEAM ASSIGNMENT:

PARENTS: PLEASE UNDERSTAND THAT WE DO NOT TAKE REQUESTS FOR SPECIFIC  COACHES.

 

Teams are formed with several factors in mind, including school, grade, experience. Because this is a "no cut" program, that has to be one of our biggest considerations in selecting teams. Once club season arrives and we have tryouts - and our coaching staff is finalized - parents have the opportunity to make those choices.


EASTSIDE PRACTICE SCHEDULE & TEAMS

We have secured Eastside Christian School as our primary practice location for our 2021 Fall Academy.

We will assign teams and coaches once we have verified enrollment and have room for up to 8 teams at this time (96 athletes). We do not typically allow participants to dictate their practice days because it limits our ability to place players on teams of similar skill. We to tend to honor car pools for our Fall Academy program, and the registration form has space to list those in your car pool. Once teams have been assigned, we cannot swap teams unless under very rare circumstances. We have also "built-in" a few openings for additional players.
