WVBA 17s-18s Tryouts Complete
WVBA 2014 Season U13/U14 Tryouts in Full Swing
SEATTLE, WA--Nov 20, 2013
2014 Tryouts Continue
WVBA would like to thank all of the outstanding players that attended our U17/U18 tryouts on Tuesday night. We were full to the rafters with hard working players. The coaches kept things moving and the players made selections very difficult.
Offers were made to forty players to join the Academy. We will be awaiting replies for all of these invitations before we know if there are any spots available for players that did not receive an invitation. Most of the players have promised to let us know by this weekend.
If you attended our tryout and are still available, we may be contacting you in the next few days.
WVBA is still accepting registrations for tryouts for the older age groups.
WVBA will sponsor six (6) full season club teams in the U15-U18 age divisions.
WVBA will also offer a robust year around program for U11-U12 players that provides the same intense training as the older teams, at a greatly reduced cost. This program will start in March and the first season will run from March-May. Contact us for more information.
Tryouts for the U15-U16 ages will be held on Saturday, November 23rd, from 2-5:30pm at Inglemoor High School in Kenmore. We will be making invitations to form at least four (4) teams in this age group.
Registration is still OPEN for this last tryout session. Please visit our online registration page for more information.
Our training atmosphere is unique in the Northwest. We train all teams that are in the same training unit together as one group.
This format efficiently and effectively increases the number of ball contacts each player receives during every practice, with a significant cumulative effect over an entire season. Each player benefits from working closely with all of the coaches rather than just the coaches of their team.

WVBA 2014 Coaching Line up
We have been working very hard to reach an agreement that will allow us to move into our own permanent training and competition facility in Lynnwood that will open in March of 2014. Things continue to progress toward this goal. We should have a final confirmation in the next few weeks.
Once we confirm we have the new facility, we will increase our program offerings beginning this spring and summer. We will offer some spring club team options that have not been available in this area for players that may not be able to make a full season commitment, but still would like to play club volleyball. We will also be offering a series of high level training camps for both general skills as well as positional specialties such as setter's camps, first contact camps, middle hitter camps, and many opportunities for players in k-6. Please keep an eye on our website for mroe information!
