Our program is designed to prepare our athletes to advance to the next level both mentally and technically.
Our programs instill and continue concepts of: autonomy, mental requirements for the next level, technical and tactical demands of a more advanced game. It is important that each team member have an open and willing mind to learn new things and be challenged. Training can be held at Greenriver Community College, Auburn High School, Kent-Meridian, Rainer Middle School and Kentridge High School.
This level is for those new to volleyball. This level trains once a week and focuses on technical skills to prepare them to move to the Power or National level.

*”Competitive-Development” Playing Time
Playing time and position are balanced between each player’s need to learn a skill or position and that player’s ability to contribute to winning. This allows for every player to play part of the every tournament, although play time is not equally distributed. Strong competition provides the context for players to learn and develop. Players who show a poor attendance recorded should only expect to play in positions with an amount of playing time that benefits the team, not the individual.

U15, U16, U17, U18 National – $2,700 Tuition includes Uniform package, Power League, Regionals, Two National Qualifiers, (U14 will attend Spokane Qualifier and Yakima Jamboree), NW Juniors Presidents Day Weekend, NW Juniors MLK weekend tournament, Emerald City Classic and administrative costs associated with the club.

*Performance-Based ” Playing Time
These teams are nationally competitive and operate according to the rules of performance-based playing time. The “Performanced-Based” coaching guideline requires that players be fully committed to attending all practices and tournaments while adhering to all team and club rules. The athletes’ performance and attitude on and off the court will determine their play time in tournaments. The evaluation of player performance for the determination of playtime, as well as team strategy decisions, is entirely up to the discretion of the coaching staff. These guidelines are used to keep teams nationally competitive and to achieve team goals. Coaches will provide a fair and impartial environment for each player to earn playing time. Coaches will not discuss playing time as it relates to other players, and will not discuss strategy and techniques with any parent or player.
**If accepted into Nationals PCVBA will run an elite camp for the girls. The camp is a requirement and we will have a summer package price which includes the camp, tournmanet fees, etc. as the end of the year approaches.
