The NCVA (Northern California Volleyball Association) requires that players must register with NCVA/USAV prior to attending any club tryouts in the Northern California Region. Players may opt to purchase a $20 Tryout Membership (good for all club tryouts), and defer their full membership until they commit to a spot on a team,or they may go ahead and purchase their $70 Full Season Membership at this time.
Players who do not yet have a USAV membership number may complete their Empire online registration at this time, but must bring a copy of their USAV membership card to tryouts or email a copy to email@example.com prior to tryouts. All memberships must be completed and paid online prior to attending the tryouts.
FAQ: Which membership is right for me? Players who are sure they are playing club volleyball may want to purchase their full season membership. This will save the cost of the tryout pass on top of their regular season membership (a total of $75). Players who are unsure whether they are playing can opt for the $15 tryout-only option. Athletes who purchase the tryout membership will need to purchase a full-season membership once they accept a spot on a team.
FAQ: Will clubs refund the membership fees if a player decides not to play club volleyball? Purchasing membership is a requirement of the regional office (NCVA), not the individual clubs. Memberships are purchased through the NCVA and USA Volleyball so clubs have no jurisdiction over those fees and requirements.
Tryout Memberships ($20): Good for tryouts only. Athletes who accept spots on teams must then purchase the full membership.
Full Memberships ($70): Full memberships for NCVA/USAV may be purchased at any time. All athletes competing on club teams this season must have full memberships to participate post-tryouts.
Every player attending tryouts will be required to present a tryout membership card or full membership card prior to participation.
