2022 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 VBC, 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!


Who can Register for Fall Academy

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

Players should be in 5th through 8th grades*.

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.

Registration is accepted on a first come basis and based on space availability; it is non-refundable.  Players are placed on teams based on the player profile provided at the time of registration.  Space is limited, so if there is ONE day you absolutely cannot practice you will have the chance to include it when you register along with any carpool information.

TEAMS and PRACTICE schedules will be determined AFTER registration closes on August 28th OR until filled. 

DEADLINE FOR REGISTRATIONS: 8/28/2022, or until filled

There is limited capacity - especially on the Eastside - so a waiting list will be created once we have reached our maximum during the sign-up period. For the wait list, we encourage you to register (not pay). Should we add teams or if players drop, we will add players from the waitlist in the order they register. For those of you seeking to play on the Eastside that live in Redmond, Kirkland, Bothell, or Woodinville - we HIGHLY encourage you to consider playing in the Northend. Fall Academy is no different than our club, as we often reach capacity on the Eastside and we (gently) urge those living in those areas to play in the Northend of our club where we have a dedicated practice gym.

*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.

We will assign teams and coaches once we have verified enrollment and have room for up to 8 teams at this time (96 athletes).
