2014-2015 Season Information
P.O. Box 4611
Wenatchee, WA 98807-4611
We conduct a 2 day tryouts. During tryouts, potential players are run through a series of drills that allow the coaches and evaluators to assess their volleyball (serving, forearm passing, overhead passing/setting, attacking, individual defense and blocking) and teamwork skills (coachability, bench attitude, frustration threshold, leadership, pick-up and teamwork). Don’t worry if your player feels she’s had an “off” day at tryouts. The coaches and evaluators are well aware of the pressure of tryouts and definitely take that into consideration.
Returning players must be in good standing with NCWVBC and the Evergreen Region from the previous year, or will not be allowed to tryout.
There is a pre-registration fee of $10.00 payable to NCWVBC to cover gym rental, shirts, and paperwork, plus a $5.00 Evergreen Region registration fee (www.evergreenregion.org) which is required and non-refundable for tryouts.
Team Selection Process
In our biggest seasons we have had multiple teams for each age group of U-12, U-14, U-16, & U-18. The number of teams we have depends on how many players tryout, the skill level of the players, as well as how many coaches we have. Your player will be informed, at the end of tryouts, which team she has been placed on. If she has not qualified for a team, a coach or evaluator will meet privately with your player to let her know why she did not make a team and provide feedback.
Our coaching staff varies from year-to-year. USA Volleyball currently has a minimum level education requirement in order to coach a USAV Junior Volleyball Program. This is satisfied with the completion of IMPACT (Increased Mastery and Professional Application of Coaching Theory) training, which all of our coaches attend each year PRIOR to beginning the season. In addition, coaches are encouraged to attend CAP (Coaching Accreditation Program) Level I every few years to keep them in touch with cutting-edge information in the areas of skill development, tactical systems, conditioning, motor learning, mental training and much more. Every year we encourage and seek out new individuals who are interested in becoming coaches or assistant coaches. If you are interested in coaching, assistant coaching, or volunteering please contact Clete Wise.
