Club Season 2020/2021

Many of you are wondering how club is going to work this year. There are many factors at play, which will determine what club will look like for us, and there are more questions than answers at this time. What we know, for sure is that NW Juniors will be offering club volleyball for the 2020-21 season.

How we will form teams:

Right now, we are initially planning on 10-12 teams in each location. This is based on court space that we anticipate having starting as early as the beginning of December. We are also looking at placing 12 players on each team. If we secure more gym space we will look to add teams or alternative programming for players we are not able to place on teams initially.

Tryouts:

Non-incumbents (those athletes who did not play with us last year) will be able to sign at the opening of tryouts November 14.  Based on openings that exist after the initial incumbent signing period, we will use tryouts to fill openings beginning 11/14. Tryouts will be held at our Northend practice gym. We are limited to 20-24 athletes at a time, so we will tryout by appointment. 

Our scheduled Tryout times will be posted below.  You will select your time upon completion of your registration. Because of COVID rules, we are limited to just 20-24 athletes per session (no spectators).

A few other points:

  • We plan to begin practices as early as November 30.
  • We will have different season plans for 14 and younger teams vs. 15 and older teams.
    • Tentatively, 14 and younger will go from December through May.
    • 15 and older will start in December and go through Memorial Weekend in May.
  • We will have a separate plan in place for what happens to our 15 and older teams during the March and April High School season.
  • We do not know whether or not any of our teams will travel.
  • We expect to be able to participate in competition in some way, we just do not know yet what that will look like. The region has schedule a Power League, but we have no confirmation that they will be able to host tournaments in January.

Where Tryouts are being held.....

Both Eastside and Northend tryouts are at Beautiful Savior Church Gym, 12810 35th Ave SE, Everett, WA 98208 [DIRECTIONS]


NWJRS Tryout information

To tryout or be evaluated for a NW Juniors Elite VBC team, you will need to complete NW Juniors on-line tryout registration form and make your $25.00 payment. You will also need to secure the $15 USAV Tryout Membership.  Both must be completed in order to participate in our tryout and evaluation.

USAV Tryout Membership $15: PLEASE NOTE THAT USA VOLLEYBALL SWITCHED ITS MEMBERSHIP MANAGEMENT SYSTEM TO SPORT NGIN YOUR 'WEBPOINT" LOGIN WILL NO LONGER WORK (you should have received an email from the region if you played last season). This is the link to Puget Sound Region's USAV page for how to secure your USAV Tryout Membership, and then upgrade to a full junior membership after tryouts. The USAV Tryout membership cost carries over to the full membership when you pay the balance to upgrade to a full membership after joining a club. (All participants must have USAV Tryout membership; this is the insurance that allows your athlete to step foot onto the court.)

NW Juniors Tryout Registration:   Girls indoor; a one-time $25 tryout fee is required to tryout for NW Juniors Elite VBC.  Tryout fees are non-refundable. If you are trying out for multiple clubs, you have to pay and register for each club's tryout.

Only one NW Juniors tryout registration is needed, even if you are trying out for multiple ages or multiple locations within NW Juniors Elite VBC.  We are still trying to determine season costs. Initially dues will include training, coaching, equipment, etc. Tournaments, competitions, travel, etc. will be added once there are assurances that competition will be available. There is a question on the tryout registration asking about your willingness to travel. 

*Additional paperwork   must be completed before attending Tryouts.
Players will not be admitted unless all paperwork is turned in ahead of time. Please check the Tryout Details page to confirm that your paperwork, has been received and to see your evaluation number. We will not collect paperwork at check-in. Be sure to e-mail paperwork to billing@volleyballnw.com

Tryout Schedule:

For Tryouts, we will have specific Covid protocols. We will ask that parents take care of all paperwork electronically before tryouts. We will not accept paperwork on-site.  Details regarding check-in and player offers will be posted here and should be reviewed with your player at least 2 days prior: https://www.nwjuniors.org/tryout-details

Check in will consist of a temperature check and sign-in.  

Please note that there is a 30 minute buffer between sessions. This buffer is not so that athletes and parents can assemble in the gym lobby. The buffer is so we can clean the gym and equipment between sessions. We ask that athletes stay in their cars until we open the doors for their group. Once doors are open, they should have their masks on and line up (6 feet apart) for the temperature check before entry.

Our Northend Practice Gym is also called "Beautiful Savior Church" or BSC. 
Address: 12810 35th Ave SE, Everett, WA 98208 [DIRECTIONS]

Eastside Team Disclaimer:
