2015 Club Tryouts
WVBA has opened registration for the 2015 club season tryouts. We are busily finishing our new volleyball facility in Lynnwood and are racing for a December 1st opening.
Tryouts for 15s-16s and 17s-18s will be held at Inglemoor HS! This is a change.
We will be offering physical testing at the Academy Sports Center on Saturday, Nov. 22nd between the hours of 11am and 3pm. Please RSVP at 425-745-0866 or by email at Kelsey@wvba.org with your approximate time. If you test on Saturday, we will have more time on Sunday for ball handling, hitting, etc.
This new 6-court facility is a game-changer for the northwest with its state-of-the art heated maple floor, 25 bathrooms, Mizuno® Pro shop, concession stand, weight lifting room, viewing and team break area, training room and offices. All WVBA teams will train at the Academy Sports Center. This year WVBA hopes to grow to 16 teams and will grow to 24 teams for the 2016 season.
If you believe the Academy is the place for you, please attend our tryouts. The cost is only $10 and we promise you a great workout in a fun and fast-paced environment. Our tryout schedule is listed below:

WVBA will train in two separate units. These units will train under the leadership of master coaches.
The College Prep Program will be made up of16s-17s-18s (Sophomores-Juniors-Seniors) . This elite level unit will provide training that prepares our athletes to have successful college careers. Over the past 16 years 85% of our graduates have gone on to play in college, including many All-Americans and some with professional careers both indoors and on the beach.
The College Prep Program will train three nights per week with weight lifting once per week. College Prep practices will be Tuesday-Wednesday-Thursday from 4:00-7:00pm.
The High School Prep Program is made up of our 13s-14s-15s (7th-8th-9th grade) teams. The training for this age group is focused on providing the foundation of skills necessary for the College Prep program and will ensure all players in our HS Prep Program have the skills to succeed in high school competition.
The High School Prep Program will practice Tuesday-Wednesday-Thursday each week with jump, speed, agility and agility training on either Tuesday or Wednesday night. The Wednesday night practice is not mandatory for the HS Prep Program, but is very beneficial. HS Prep practice times are 7:00-9:30pm.

With the opening of the Academy Sports Center, WVBA will be expanding and hopes to fill the following team line up for this season:
18 Mizuno - 12th graders
We will offer a 3-month schedule Dec-Feb-March, and March-April-May for approx. $725 and each team will practice 2 nights per week and play in tournaments twice per month.WVBA 2015 Coaches
We are excited to announce our initial coaching line-up for the 2015 club season.
Coaches that will be working with the College Prep program:
Dave Weitl - Master Coach
Coaches working with the High School Prep program:
Sarah Chase - Master Coach
As we expand our programs at the Academy Sports Center we will be adding significantly to our coaching line up. One of the benefits we are most excited about with the new facility is the ability to offer full-time employment for several coaches, allowing them to coach for a living rather than as a hobby.
