    General Information

    NCVA Memberships are valid from September 1 to August 31 on a yearly basis. The NCVA online system will reset every year on September 1. At this time, all NCVA memberships will need to be renewed. A full season membership for both adults and juniors is $60.00 per person, annually.

    Anyone may register to be a member of the NCVA with no limits to age, sex. ethnicity, etc. All members must register and pay online with a credit/debit card. An NCVA Membership is not valid until information is entered, verified, and the NCVA Office receives payment. The NCVA also reserves the right to reject memberships to any individual. In such cases, any information received by the NCVA will be deleted.

    When entering data online with the NCVA web site, all marked fields are required to be completed. At your discretion, you may enter the optional fields. It is highly recommended, even though it is not a required field, that you enter a phone number for the NCVA to contact you, should it be necessary. Once this is completed, you will be able to log in and update information as you wish, when it changes. Information from this site will be securely transferred to USA Volleyball throughout the season. You may view our privacy policy by selecting Bylaws/Privacy Policy under Info above.

    Background Screening - Adults

    It is the policy of the Regional Volleyball Associations (RVAs) that any club/entity intending to hire or use registered individuals in any sanctioned junior volleyball events and/or activities (some examples of events or activities that can be sanctioned with regional approval are: tournaments, practices, clinics, tryouts, and fundraisers) will accept and abide by this background screening policy. The following individuals, 18 years of age or older, will be screened: Club directors, club administrators, team reps, coaches, chaperones, and trainers who intend to register, affiliate and/or participate with a junior volleyball club or team in a RVA.  Any official 18 or older who intends to work a junior sanctioned event will also be screened with the exception of a junior player.  Each RVA may also choose to require other members (such as Tournament Directors) of their organization to submit to and pass a background screen in order to affiliate with their organization.  Additionally, the club/entity will enforce the penalties resulting from a negative background screening report. Failure to do so is grounds for automatic suspension of membership privileges to participate in RVA/USA sanctioned junior events and/or activities. All disqualified individuals have the right to dispute the findings of the background screening directly with the RVA’s approved Background Screen Vendor.

    The RVAs of USA will not register, or allow to be registered, any individual who refuses to consent to a background screen if he/she intends to affiliate and/or participate with a junior club or team in the RVA. Junior members are any members under the age of 18. A background screen will not be required for those individuals who will be classified only as junior players or those individuals not registered, affiliated and/or participating with a junior volleyball club or team in a RVA. For those regions that allow individuals under 18 to be an assistant coach, any individual who is not yet 18 years old and who is in a non-player role affiliated with a junior club must be background screened immediately upon reaching 18 years of age.  A 30-day grace period shall apply from the date of the 18th birthday in order to allow time for the background screening to be processed.  During the 30-day grace period, the same restrictions apply to the individual and should be enforced as are in place for junior coaches regarding supervision by a qualified adult.  It is the responsibility of the individual, club and region to identify the individuals in this situation and to meet the background screening requirement.  Upon the conclusion of the 30-day grace period, the individual may not participate in a non-player role affiliated with a junior club unless the background screening requirement is met.

    Directors and Representatives

    Club directors and team representatives (Adult Division league) can manage their players, teams and club information online. They may also register and pay for tournaments using the online registration system.

    Not sure which division to sign up for?

    Far Westerns used to have Open and Club divisions.

    Open gave 3 open bids and was very, very strong competition – approximately only 10% of the teams that play in the Far Western enter this division.
    Club gave out a National and an American bid – 90% of the teams at FW participated in this division.

    Many years ago, some of the qualifiers started splitting the club division into a National Division and an American Division. Each division had one bid and the teams picked which one they wanted to try for.

    Since that was the case for most of the tournaments, USAV decided to make it the norm for all qualifiers. And, in addition to this they changed the National Bid given at Qualifiers to be called a USA bid. American remained the same.

    So, now you have Open, USA and American. Open gets 3 bids, USA gets one bid and American gets one bid. In theory, Open teams should be better than USA teams and USA teams should be better than American teams – but since the clubs decide where they will play, this is not law.

    Now, in addition to these divisions, we have decided to add a non-bid awarding division called the No Dinx Division. This allows teams that have waivered players, etc and may not have the same requirements as teams playing in the bid awarding divisions which allows more teams the opportunity to experience the Far Western. It also means that the No Dinx Division does not have as strict format and tie breaking guidelines making it a an opportunity for teams to experience Far Westerns without all the requirements that may be limiting.

    What is University Athlete?

    University Athlete is the premier communication tool connecting collegiate coaches and athletes in Girl’s Volleyball. We are NOT a recruiting service; we don’t sell athletes to colleges; therefore, the coaches trust us and use our services. UA combines the convenience of an online database with the efficiency of Palm© software to assist coaches’ recruiting efforts at tournaments. At a tournament, recruiters can instantly find any player, identify new players, evaluate and take notes without losing valuable time needed to watch courts. More than 750 college coaches utilize University Athlete’s services and that number is growing. With the booming business of collegiate athletics upon us, UA has created a system that efficiently and effectively connects the coaches with the players in a timely and secure environment. Athletes now have the tools at hand to get the correct information into the hands of the recruiters at NO COST.

    Site Rules

    If you have any questions regarding the site that your team has been assigned to, do not contact the school/site directly. Inundating sites with phone calls about tournaments strains our relationships with the facility and may cause the site to stop hosting tournaments.

    • No ice chests, coolers, soft sided coolers, small coolers or large coolers will be allowed inside.
    • No broken folding chairs, tents, trash left outside the gym or parking lots.
    • Security Guards will be present at all convention centers to enforce site rules
    • Devices, of any kind, that heat food that require them to be plugged in and/or use a flame, of any kind, are not permitted on the premises of any facility.

    Penalties for violating these rules are:

    • Tournament Director will impose 13 Point Penalty. The 13 Point Penalty means that in the team’s next set, the score will begin at 0-13, with 13 points automatically awarded to the opposing team.
    • Receive $200 fine from the NCVA.
    • Receive last place finish and points, if applicable.
    • Teams may be asked to leave the tournament.

    FAQ’s

    • Q:

      How do I become a Tournament Director?

      A:

      The NCVA is always looking to train new people into becoming tournament directors for our tournaments. It is a great way to make some money and also watch some great volleyball. We have tournaments just about every weekend during the sanctioned season. If you are interested in viewing the responsibilities of a tournament director you can review the Girls Handbook or you can email us and will provide you with some information. – If you are interested in becoming a tournament director, please email us at vball@ncva.com for more information.

      Back to top
    • Q:

      Do Tournament Directors have the authority to change formats during the tournament either to reformat (due to a team not showing up) or to move the tournament along faster?

      A:

      Yes! The Tournament Director has the ability to change formats. The Tournament Director is provided a phone number to contact an NCVA Staff member to approve each change that has been made before it is done. The reason for checking before changes can be made is because the change could possibly affect a Bid to Junior Olympics for teams or can affect seeds for Qualifiers or Regional Championships. Tournament Directors are all trained to make correct changes, but are always required to check with the on call NCVA staff member to verify. Remember…for example for Girls Teams, Power League #1 is not a standalone tournament. It is the 3rd day of a 7 day event which can affect bids for Junior Olympics. – If you are interested in becoming a tournament director, please email us at vball@ncva.com for more information.

      Back to top
    • Q:

      How do I find information for my daughter or son on tryouts for the upcoming season?

      A:

      The information for sanctioned club tryouts is posted on our website weekly. Prior to the season starting, the tryout postings are listed under Girl’s/Boy’s Tryouts on the NCVA homepage. The NCVA gives each club an opportunity to post their tryouts on our website. If you are interested in a particular club and do not see the club listed on our Tryouts Listings page, please contact the NCVA Office to inquire if that club is a sanctioned club with the NCVA. As parents you have the right to know what is going on with the club you are trying out for. Please refer to the Club Tryouts page in the handbook for more information. It is important as parents to know what time, money and energy you are committing both your daughter/son and yourself to. Be sure to check out the Parents Bill of Rights which can be found on the Parent General Information page of the NCVA website. – If you are interested in becoming a tournament director, please email us at vball@ncva.com for more information.

      Back to top
    • Q:

      Why are fees for one club team more expensive than other club teams?

      A:

      Individual Clubs are the ones who set their fees for the season. The NCVA only requires a limited payment to us during the season and the fee is determined by what league (of the 3 tiers) your club/team wants to participate in (Power League, Area League or Non-League). Each league varies in payment price. League Fees & NCVA Fee Analysis – The fees through the individual club are divided up according to gym rentals, equipment, uniforms, club director & coach’s salaries, tournament fees, travel, etc.

    • Q:

      How do I register my daughter/son to become a NCVA member?

      A:

      Players are required to register online before participating in any tryout, clinic, practice, tournament, etc. All members are required to register online via the NCVA website. During registration, you will have the opportunity to select the membership type that you would like to register for. (i.e. tryout membership – $15, full membership – $60, etc.) We encourage parents to become members as well. This will ensure that you receive all pertinent information about the club season and that you stay up to date on all information also sent to the club. If you need assistance with either process, please contact the NCVA by email, vball@ncva.com or by phone (415) 550-7582.

    • Q:

      Do the club directors, coaches and staff of the club team receive background checks?

      A:

      Yes, anyone that is affiliated with the club must have their background check cleared every two years. This is the policy of our organization that any member, who participates with junior members in any capacity, including supervisory personnel, club directors, team representatives, coaches, chaperones, and trainers, shall submit to a background screen immediately upon application for registration and every two years thereafter so long as that individual is a registered member. USAV/NCVA has one of the best/outstanding background screening processes in the industry. The list of what we check for is one of the most comprehensive. Other organizations may do spot background checks but the question to ask is what the screening company check for? Does the company check on the important items that will affect my child? In most cases, the answer to this question will be no. However, this is not the case with the USAV/NCVA background screening. Our main concern is to protect your child to the best of our ability. If you as a parent are ever in question if any one mentioned above has not been background checked please email the NCVA Office (vball@ncva.com) with the full name and the club affiliation, so we can check to make sure. Please also include your contact information.

    • Q:

      How does the NCVA go about renting facilities for tournaments?

      A:

      The NCVA over the years has developed relationships with many Athletic Directors, Junior High & High School contacts, as well as Colleges and Recreation Centers throughout our region. It does take a large commitment from the site contact to allow the NCVA to hold events at their sites. We appreciate and applaud them. While we work with our contacts we always know that the school has the last say on when and how a site can be used and school activities always come first to them. Translation = the NCVA can be bumped at anytime for any reason no matter how long we have had the reservation.

      We are always looking for new sites (relationships) – (Facilities Rental Form) that fit the needs of our participants, especially in the areas that we are lacking sites. Club Directors and site contacts often use these events as fund raisers for their club or school teams.

      Our facility standards are set by the USAV Indoor Volleyball Domestic Competition Regulations. While the NCVA has the safety of the participants and their fan base as a high priority we must rely on the tournament director/site contacts to meet the standards set forth in their contract and inform the office of any infractions appointed in the contract.

    • Q:

      Who do I contact when I want to know about facilities locations, posting of results and/or points?

      A:

      This information can be found on the NCVA website. To view this information go to the menu for the Division you want to look up (Girls/Boys) then choose the league and then Teams in Events, Results, etc.

      Back to top
    • Q:

      Where do I find the locations of the tournament results and points for my team?

      A:

      Please refer to the NCVA website. Under each division header – Girls/Boys – you will find links to all of our leagues (Power League, Area League and Non League). Choose the league you want to find information for. Then, select results or points. This will take you to the page where you can choose your age division and look at your player’s results and points. You can also click on Teams to see where your team will be playing in the upcoming tournaments. Typically results and points will be posted on the website before noon on Wednesdays following the tournament weekend.

      Back to top
    • Q:

      Why does the NCVA have a difficult time finding some sites for certain weekends?

      A:

      The NCVA works around the clock trying to find sites where our teams can play. We have a difficult time finding sites because sites will cancel on us for numerous amounts of reasons, or we cannot use a site because from the previous weekend the site was vandalized by our members. These are ongoing issues that the NCVA tries to avoid, but we need the help of our members to ensure we have enough sites for our tournaments. Generally, we get help from people like you. If you know of any sites, please contact the NCVA Office to see if the site can help accommodate our teams.

    • Q:

      Where do your NCVA Officials come from? And what training do they, or have they received?

      A:

      The NCVA is always recruiting officials for our club season, with many coming from other sports and a few from our volleyball ranks. We attend job fairs for officials as well as recruiting at local college fairs looking for people with schedules that meet the needs of the NCVA volleyball seasons.

      The NCVA assigns officials to different High School Leagues and Colleges during their respective seasons trying to keep our officials active during the club off season.

      The NCVA requires all officials to attend a rules clinic every season to go over any rule changes while sharpening those that have not been working during the High School/College seasons. The NCVA has implemented a full day Symposium for prospective officials just before the California Kickoff and then uses the California Kickoff as a training ground for the new officials pairing them up with mentors to bring them up to speed in volleyball.

      It surprises us that year after year young people leave the NCVA player ranks with knowledge of the game, some exhibiting very competent officiating skills from years of club play and yet not putting it to work for themselves. Many of the High School and college seasons have schedules that meet the needs of students with flexible days and times for scheduled games. They could go to work anywhere that there is volleyball happening, but we would love to have them in the ranks of the NCVA Officials.

      Testimonials:

      Kylie Nuckols is a graduate of UC Davis and is now studying in Beverly Hills with ambitions of working in the Plastic Surgery field, this is her story; I was a volleyball player in both High school and club and after graduation I needed a job. Volleyball was a natural fit in my busy school schedule and easy for me since I already had knowledge of the game. I continued to ref through all my college years, starting first with middle school and high school levels and then through the various levels of club. I eventually moved up to collegiate volleyball games and assisted the NCVA Officials Division in training new officials. Volleyball officiating was always flexible and a fun job that earned me extra money through my years as a student.

      Caitlin Parker

      I am currently a student and volleyball player at California Baptist University majoring in Sociology. I plan to be a counselor in the future after I complete grad school. I started playing volleyball in the NCVA at the age of 11. Volleyball quickly became my passion. I played in high school, club, and continued on to play in college. My freshman year of college I need some extra money, even though I already had a job. My Dad, Bob Parker, was planning to ref that year and convinced me to join him. It proved to be a great decision. The NCVA was very flexible with my schedule and as a broke college student the extra money really helped. More than that, I gained better knowledge of the game which has helped me as a player and coach. It was also a fun activity I shared with my Dad that have created some amazing memories. I moved down to Southern California to finish my college volleyball career. After 3 years of being a student, player, and coach I have decided to continue officiating. As of Dec. 2007 my volleyball career is over, but I am so grateful I can continue my involvement with the sport I love through officiating. A side note Caitlin finished her college career at CBU with a tough loss in the NAIA National Championships to No. 1 ranked Fresno Pacific College

    Site Rules

    If you have any questions regarding the site that your team has been assigned to, do not contact the school/site directly. Inundating sites with phone calls about tournaments strains our relationships with the facility and may cause the site to stop hosting tournaments. If you have a question about a school/site, you need to email vball@ncva.com

    The site rules for ALL NCVA facilities are:

    • NO ALCOHOL is permitted on the premises of any facility – This includes the parking lot, quads/grass areas, gym, etc.
    • No outside food or beverages inside the facility. Water will be allowed when carried individually, not in a cooler.
    • No ice chests, coolers, soft sided coolers, small coolers or large coolers will be allowed inside.
    • No broken folding chairs, tents, trash left outside the gym or parking lots.
    • Security Guards will be present at all convention centers to enforce site rules
    • Devices, of any kind, that heat food that require them to be plugged in and/or use a flame, of any kind, are not permitted on the premises of any facility.

    Penalties for violating these rules are:

    • Tournament Director will impose 13 Point Penalty. The 13 Point Penalty means that in the team’s next set, the score will begin at 0-13, with 13 points automatically awarded to the opposing team.
    • Receive $200 fine from the NCVA.
    • Receive last place finish and points, if applicable.
    • Teams may be asked to leave the tournament.

    All Sites: The NCVA would like to remind you to make sure you always lock your cars, keep your expensive items out of plain view and keep your personal items within your sight at each facility at all times.

     

    Additional rules by site can be found on our Site Rules page

    Youth League Info

    Youth League is designed to introduce players to club volleyball. The league costs $100. This fee covers all 6 league events and their membership during the league period.

    Age Divisions offered:

    5th/6th Girls

    5th/6th Boys

    7th/8th Girls

    7th/8th Boys

    9th Girls

    9th Boys

    Main Rule Differences:

    • Players are allowed to step into the court to serve, if they need it. If a player is really good and can serve over the net from behind the line, they do not get to step into the court – we work on the honor system – each coach should be accountable for their team.
    • 5th / 6th grade players:
      • The players may re-serve if they miss the first serve.
      • The teams will do timed matches instead
        • 35 minutes each match, switching sides after 15 minutes.
      • A limit of 3 serves in a row, then side-out, without awarding a point.
    • 7th / 8th grade players:
      • 2 set cap – the result is recorded as a split and all results are done by set percentage
    • Uniform requirements are relaxed. Players should have matching shirts with a number on at least one side of the shirt.
    • At each event there is a 20 minute break between the second and third matches of the tournament, however, the teams may decide to go ahead and play if they use a 4 team pool as breaks are built into the format.
    • Each Youth League tournament starts at 9:00 AM and is scheduled to end by 3:00 PM.
    • There are two TDs assigned to each Youth League tournament. This allows one to take care of the TD work and the other to work as a court monitor helping with scorekeeping and officiating duties.

    Grass Volleyball

    The NCVA Grass Division gives members more opportunities to play volleyball. Grass volleyball is great during the summer months when you want to get outside and play (rather than being in a gym) but you may not be close to the beach or just do not want to deal with the elements that come with sand volleyball.  Grass volleyball is a great opportunity to play with your friends in a local outdoor tournament. The NCVA Grass Division offers opportunities to accumulate points during the regular grass season based on tournament results. These points will be used to seed teams into the season ending NCVA Grass Championships.

    All junior and adult grass players must be members of the region to compete in any NCVA Grass Tournament.  The NCVA offers a $20 Grass Summer Season Pass.

    Sand Volleyball

    Many people do not realize that USA Volleyball is the National Governing Body for the sport of beach volleyball in the United States. USA Volleyball runs and manages the USA Beach National Volleyball Teams, the USA Beach Olympic Teams, and also USA Youth and Junior Beach National Teams for each gender. NCVA, in an effort to bring sand volleyball to our region, organizes a sand volleyball league for men, women, girls and boys. The NCVA hopes that this will broaden the interest in the game of sand volleyball.

    The USAV and NCVA sand programs work to advance sand volleyball talent and build a broader and stronger pipeline of athletes and coaches for our U.S. Olympic Teams. The USAV and NCVA Sand Programs are the "pipeline" for young beach volleyball athletes who aspire to reach the elite level of their sport and who dream of representing the United States on the Beach National Volleyball Team.

    The NCVA junior sand division offers opportunities to accumulate points during the regular sand season for both junior boy’s and girl’s based on tournament results. These points will be used to seed teams into the season ending NCVA Sand Tour Championships. In addition USA Volleyball will be selecting several of our tour events (points received) to count toward their season ending championships.

    The Sand Division is for ages 21 & under.
