What is a NCVA Membership and why do I need to pay for it prior to tryouts?  

The Northern California Volleyball Association (NCVA) is the governing body of all the clubs from California to Nevada. They are the entity that sets up our Power League, Friendship, and Qualifiers. They are in charge of location, time, and dates of tournaments.  In order to participate in a tournament you must be a NCVA Member. Which consist of paying a $60.00 membership fee paid directly to the NCVA. For tryout purposes you can purchase a $15.00 tryout pass; however, once your daughter is selected for a team you must have a NCVA membership. If you purchase the membership upfront you save the $15.00 by only paying $60.00 instead of $75.00. Having either a NCVA Membership or a Tryout Pass is mandatory for any tryouts by NCVA Sanctioned Clubs. Any club not asking for your NCVA membership or tryout pass is not following NCVA policy and procedures. To register for your NCVA membership please visit: NCVA Membership

How Does the NCVA Rank A Team in Power League?

You want to play for a club that has history in Power League and Qualifier play. Our Power League team seeding will be based on our finishes from last season. For example our 16-1 team finished 25th overall, which means our 17-1 team will be ranked in the Top 30 for the Power League Qualifier. If our club did not have a 16-1 team then our 17's team would be ranked at the bottom of the 17's teams in Power League. It is the same with our any of 2's team, because we have history our 2's team will be ranked in the mid level range. To see where Core Team finished last season please go to Core Results.

Where do you practice?

Core has two facilities dedicated to volleyball. One is located at 6270 Houston Place Dublin, which is a 20,000 sq ft facility that holds two volleyball courts and  a training area. The second facility is Core Courts 6490 Sierra Court Dublin, which holds one court and a training area. The best part about Core having its own courts is that you do not have to worry about practices cancelling due to being overbooked at a High School or College gym. Parents will know the practice schedule prior to the signing meeting for the next six months.  Practices will start the Dec 1, 2014.

Where do I start if my daughter wants to play in College?
