ABOUT NW JUNIORS VBC

 
Northwest Juniors Volleyball Club was established in 1972 and is a member in good standing of the Puget Sound Region of USA Volleyball.

NWJRS Tryout Information

To tryout for a NW Juniors Elite VBC team, you will need to complete our on-line tryout registration form and make your $25.00 payment. You will also need to secure the $5 USAV Tryout Membership.  Both must be completed in order to participate in our tryout.

USAV Tryout Membership: $5; 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.  Please read information about our Under Armour and Baden teams before registering for tryouts. Here is the list of teams for 2019.

*Additional paperwork needs to be completed in addition to the above NW Juniors tryout registration and USAV Membership.

And be sure to register for our Boy's Team tryouts on Sunday, December 2 from 2-4 PM at Juanita HS. The tryout is free, but you do need a USAV tryout membership.


Makeup Tryouts

We offer makeup tryouts so that players have the opportunity to audition for team openings. We do NOT recommend using makeup tryouts as your "tryout" for our #1 teams, as we usually fill those rosters during the initial tryout process.

With the new signing rules, chances are we will have openings on our #2 or #3 teams during makeup tryouts, but we expect to fill our #1 teams during the initial scheduled tryouts.
