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

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 view the tournament schedule for will be announced at the parent meeting during tryouts or it will be posted on the website once it’s completed.

It depends on the team and tournaments and will discussed in detail at the Tryout Parent Meeting.
