To ensure check-in runs smoothly, please arrive 30 minutes prior to the scheduled time (1st day of tryouts) for your age group.

Players are expected to attend both tryouts. If you are unable to make both try-outs please do your best to advise us in advance. Email us at inquiries@seasidevolleyball.com.

When signing up for volleyball, there are some key events that all athletes are expected to attend:

Super Series Tournaments (16U & up)
Fraser Valley Regional Championships
Provincial Championships
National Championships (when applicable)

Exact dates detailed below by gender and age group.

NOTE: Coaches expect their players to commit to these events. If you are aware of conflicts in advance, you may want to reconsider your commitment to club volleyball. Teams travelling for out-of-town provincial championships and out-of-province national championships (when applicable) will be required to pay in addition to the posted club fees.

Playing Up

Occasionally athletes demonstrate a desire to play up an age level.  At Seaside we will consider moving an athlete up under one or more of the following circumstances;

The athlete demonstrates superior volleyball skills at their current age level
The athlete demonstrates the ability to fit in with older athletes at a social level
The athlete demonstrates the athletic ability to play with older athletes
The athlete is in the same grade and age level as the older athlete at school
The athlete has participated in other sports with older athletes
The club has a specific position to fill at the older age group and is unable to find a qualified player

If a player feels they fit into one or more of these categories, they MUST contact a Seaside coach or official a minimum of 1 week prior to tryouts.  The coach and executive committee will discuss the request and advise the player prior to tryouts whether their request has been approved. 

If the athlete is not selected after the first day for the age group up she is trying out for, the athlete will be asked to move back to their current age group tryout session the following day.

What if my daughter/son decides to withdraw from playing for the club?  Once a player has committed to participate with Seaside and has paid club fees, it is assumed by the club that the player will continue playing throughout the season.  The club has committed registration fees, equipment, uniforms, warm-ups and travel arrangements that are not recoverable in the event the athlete quits the club and will be a financial burden to the remaining members of the team.  It is our policy that if a player withdraws from the team after being selected, the player will not receive a refund.
