Girls Volleyball Quick Facts

Fees

Registration Fees: $480 includes $350 registration fee plus $130 for a warm-up jacket and pants, long sleeve Dri-FIT shirt, and a team T-shirt

Additional Costs: Include black spandex/compression shorts, plus gear, equipment, and any team-related trips and activities (see below).

Anticipated Levels of Play

The volleyball program generally offers both JV and varsity teams. This is dependent on the number of registered players at the start of the season, but as we do not cut players, we will have at least two teams for the foreseeable future. We will add a JV-C team if our numbers warrant it.

Practice and Game Schedule

The varsity and JV teams practice weekdays from 4:45 p.m. – 6:45 p.m. C team, on years we can field one, will also practice from 4:45 p.m. – 6:45 p.m. Once the girls have completed their initial 10 practices, the C team will only have practices or play in games 3 – 4 days per week. Varsity and JV have 18 regular season matches, generally played right after school, and one away tournament each. Home matches start at 4:30 p.m. for JV and 5:30 p.m. for varsity and are played in the gym in the Main building. Away matches occasionally involve early dismissals from class as we travel to matches.

Transportation

Transportation is not needed for practices as we stay at the school for training. For away matches, transportation will be provided by the school, and the expectation is that students will travel together on the bus or van. Students are not allowed to drive their own vehicles or arrange their own transportation.

Uniform, Gear, and Equipment

The official volleyball team uniform includes a uniform jersey (the school provides two uniform jerseys which must be returned at the end of the season) and black stretch/compression shorts (purchased independently). Girls are highly encouraged to purchase high quality athletic shoes for the season. Volleyball shoes are recommended both for performance and injury prevention. Our coaching staff would be happy to make personal recommendations for any athletes with questions. Other gear items may include kneepads and ankle braces.

Retreats and Overnight Activities

During the season, it is common for our teams to organize fun team activities, including evening/weekend bonding events and an away tournament. All of these associated costs are shared between the families participating and may be coordinated through the school or through parent organizers.

Offseason and Preseason Activities

The program both runs and encourages many offseason activities. Bear Creek promotes and encourages girls to sign up and play volleyball (or any other sports) through the various club programs in the region. Open gyms are run throughout the summer in bi-weekly evening sessions, and our program has Bear Creek summer volleyball camps for all ages; sometimes the team attend University of Washington’s team camp. All team camps and clinics come at the expense of the individual families that choose to participate. Many club programs are available in the Puget Sound region at all levels of skill and time commitment, from once-a-week January to April practice-only squads to competitive club seasons that run through mid-summer.
