AGE CATEGORY INFORMATION

Volleyball Alberta / Volleyball Canada determine the age categories for Competitive Club teams. Here is the breakdown for the 2020 season:

13U – Athletes born Sep 1, 2006 or later
14U – Athletes born Sep 1, 2005 to Dec 31, 2006 (16 months)
15U – Athletes born Sep 1, 2004 to Dec 31, 2005 (16 months)
16U – Athletes born Sep 1, 2003 to Dec 31, 2004 (16 months)
17U – Athletes born Sep 1, 2002 to Dec 31, 2003 (16 months)
18U – Athletes born Sep 1, 2001 to Dec 31, 2002 (16 months)

In short this means that any athlete born between Sep 1 to Dec 31 has the option of playing with other athletes born in the same birth year or playing down to the next younger age category if developmentally that is a better fit. For more details about this please refer to Volleyball Canada Age Categories. Here is an excerpt from that link:

Some athletes born from Sept-Dec will benefit from choosing a younger division, while other athletes who play at an advanced level would benefit from the challenge of playing up an age category. Athletes, parents and coaches should consider the short term and long term benefits of playing up or down an age category. Volleyball Canada recommends that if playing up provides the needed challenge for improvement, and there exists no significant social/emotional drawbacks in the older age category, athletes should play up.

The FVC must manage the number of athletes per team across age categories while the interest level across categories can vary. We ask that in general athletes tryout in the age category of their birth year. If an athlete falls within the Sept to Dec birth dates and would like to tryout for a younger age category than their birth year, please contact the club to make us aware of your intention and to ensure the coach is aware.

VOLLEYBALL ALBERTA / CANADA REGISTRATION (REQUIRED BEFORE TRYOUTS)

Every athlete planning to tryout for an FVC competitive team MUST be registered as a ‘Recreational’ player with Volleyball Alberta & Volleyball Canada before attending the tryout. There is an $10.25 fee for registration under this category that must be paid for by the athlete/family and is non-refundable.

For details on how to register, please refer to this link from Volleyball Alberta: http://www.volleyballalberta.ca/node/84

For the registration page itself: https://site2704.goalline.ca/register.php?reg_form_id=31349

  • If you are a returning player or participated in a previous camp program with the FVC (e.g. our 2019 Summer Camp) then you likely have a 6-digit Access Code with Goalline. There is a link to retrieve this on the page above if you can’t find it in historical email (search your email for ‘goalline’).
  • If you are registering as a New Player then the ‘Association’ to select is ‘Region 1 – Sunny South’ and the Team Code should be left blank.
  • Please forward to club@fernievolleyball.com by the Nov 30th deadline your proof of registration as a Recreational Player. Click for an example of the email you need to forward (received after successful registration on Goallline). 

TEAM SELECTION / COMPOSITION

The FVC coaching staff will select a maximum of 12 athletes to form any of the competitive teams. In gender/age categories where there is strong interest and a larger number of athletes participating in tryouts, not all athletes will be offered a position on the team. In situations where 12 or fewer athletes tryout for a team, the coaching staff is not bound to select all athletes if it’s deemed that a significant skill gap (or commitment gap) exists that could be detrimental to overall team development.

In determining team selection, the FVC coaching staff will assess:

  • Core Volleyball skills and abilities
  • Overall athletic ability
  • Effort/focus during tryouts
  • Overall demeanour, perceived coachability and team fit

If the number of athletes trying out in any category is significant (e.g. 22+) and practice facilities and coaching is available the FVC will consider forming two teams (generally organized by ability) in the same category. The club can send multiple teams in the same category to any of the tournaments. This is quite common for larger clubs in bigger centres.

The FVC will also  try (coaching and facilities dependent) and support players who aren’t selected for competitive teams by facilitating drop-in and development programs throughout the season to allow keen athletes to continue to evolve their Volleyball skills/experience. We will do whatever we can to keep athletes engaged in the sport throughout the Winter helping to prepare them to compete in the School season or a future club season.

If you have questions about the Tryout process or FVC competitive teams/season, please feel free to email us at club@fernievolleyball.com

We can’t wait to get the season started! Be sure to register with Volleyball Alberta/Canada and send us your proof of registration by Nov 30th.

2020 Competitive Player Fees

2020 Fees for Fernie Volleyball Club Competitive Teams

  • 13U: $605 to FVC + $10.25 direct to VA
  • 14U: $673 to FVC + $10.25 direct to VA
  • 15U+: $725 to FVC + $10.25 direct to VA

Volleyball Alberta (VA) and Volleyball Canada (VC) collect fees for competitive players beyond the fees the club charges. FVC is able to collect and pay a portion of these fees on behalf of all players that participate on a competitive team. There is also a portion that has to be paid directly by the athlete/family ahead of tryouts. This fee to be settled ahead of tryouts is considered a Youth Recreational Player fee and totals $10.25 ($5.25 to Volleyball Alberta and $5 to Volleyball Canada). When tryout dates/times are announced in the coming days, more information will be provided about completing this registration as the club requires proof of Recreational Player registration before allowing the athlete to participate in Tryouts.

For athletes that are offered a spot on an FVC competitive team and accept, the club will be upgrading the VA/VC membership for each athlete on a team roster from ‘Recreational’ to ‘Competitive – Indoor’. This upgrade amount is $54.40 for players on a 13U team and $70.15 for players on 14U+ teams and are collected as part of the overall FVC fees collected. (The overall values at the top of the page for different age categories include these amounts)

Fees will fluctuate on a year-to-year basis but for 2020 the FVC base fee (excluding VA/VC portion) has been determined to be $716.60 (subsidized down to $550.60) for players on a 13U team,  $769.85 (subsidized down to  $602.85) for players on a 14U team and  $824.85 (subsidized down to $654.85) for players in the 15U+ team. These fees are lower than in 2019.

The club is excited to have run successful camp and recreational programs and done enough fundraising to be in a position to offer an even larger subsidy this year and to be able to offer fees lower this year compared to last year. This level of base fee and subsidy is not guaranteed to be consistent/available every year but FVC is working hard to try and make the club as accessible as possible by keeping fees as low as possible.

The FVC portion of fees include the tournament fees and coaching costs for ALL Volleyball Alberta Premier tournaments and Provincial championships. In the 13U & 14U age categories fees also include the tournament/coaching costs for the Cranbrook Cup event. If teams decide (as a team) to participate in additional events or Volleyball Canada Nationals the event & coaching costs will be separate and shared across participating players on those teams. (Teams often fundraise as a team to help offset additional costs such as Nationals)

Families should also budget the cost of travel, accommodation and food for Premier and Provincial championship events during the season. Some players/parents stay with friends/family in Calgary & Edmonton and many stay in a team organized hotel. Typically games start quite early on Saturday so travelling later on Friday and staying 2 nights in Calgary/Edmonton is common.

Yearly FVC fees are determined by a rigorous budgeting exercise taking into consideration a number of factors including:
– Anticipated number of teams and anticipated number of players per team
– Number and location of tournaments
– Coaching costs (Travel Expenses and Honorarium)
– Uniform & Equipment requirements
– Facilities requirements
– General overhead for operating the club (Website, Volleyball Alberta Registrations, Accounting/Legal, etc)

If costs are a barrier to participation in the club, we encourage families to pursue support programs such as:
– Emily Brydon Youth Foundation: http://emilybrydonyouthfoundation.com/
– Canadian Tire Jumpstart: http://jumpstart.canadiantire.ca/en.html
– Kidsport Canada: http://www.kidsportcanada.ca/british-columbia/
– Just 4 Kics: http://www.just4kics.ca/
– Athletics 4 Kids: http://www.a4k.ca/

We have had a number of FVC athletes supported via these programs in past years.

Official club tryouts and registrations can only happen during the official Volleyball Alberta tryout period which begins on November 25th. The club is currently working on booking gym time for tryouts. Tentative tryout dates are Sunday, Dec 1st and Sunday Dec 8th. More details will be shared when official tryouts dates/times/locations are established. We anticipate a $10 fee per player for tryouts (would provide access to both sessions) to cover the cost of facilities rentals.

SMASHBALL aims to increase participation rates in volleyball through a modified game that makes the sport more enticing by focusing on the sport’s most exciting skill – the spike.

A few basics of the game:

  • Lower net and smaller court (usually played as 2v2 or 3v3)
  • In earlier progressions of the game, catching the ball and moving with the ball to the net is encouraged before spiking the ball over.
  • Early sessions will focus on the spike (armswing and footwork) as well as a basic serve.
  • Additional fundamental volleyball skills such as the forearm pass (bump) and overhead pass (set) are introduced during later progressions.

Fee: $70 (basic program) or $95 (includes your own Volleyball for practice at home)

For those opting into the the $95 option, the volleyball provided will a Tachikara Volley Lite ball which is a very high quality volleyball for developing players. ($25 is a VERY good deal for this ball)

A maximum of 24 participants can be accommodated in the program on a first come first serve basis.

To secure a spot, register at the link above and send payment by eTransfer to treasurer@fernievolleyball.com. (If a password is required, please set it to ‘smashball’). Registration will be closed after the first 24 participants send payment and additional participants will be placed on a waiting list.

2019 Competitive Player Fees

2019 Fees for Fernie Volleyball Club Competitive Teams (UPDATED: NOV 14, 2018)

U13/U14: $646.99 to FVC + $8.25 direct to VA
U15+: $770.61 to FVC + $8.25 direct to VA

Volleyball Alberta (VA) and Volleyball Canada (VC) collect fees for competitive players beyond the fees the club charges. FVC is able to collect and pay a portion of these fees on behalf of all players that participate on a competitive team. There is also a portion that has to be paid directly by the athlete/family ahead of tryouts. This fee to be settled ahead of tryouts is considered a Youth Recreational Player fee and totals $8.25 ($5.25 to Volleyball Alberta and $3 to Volleyball Canada). When tryout dates/times are announced in the coming days, more information will be provided about completing this registration as the club requires proof of Recreational Player registration before allowing the athlete to participate in Tryouts.

For athletes that are offered a spot on an FVC competitive team and accept, the club will be upgrading the VA/VC membership for each athlete on a team roster from ‘Recreational’ to ‘Competitive – Indoor’. This upgrade amount is $55.40 for players in U13/U14 and $71.15 for players in U15+ and will be collected as part of the overall FVC fees collected.

Fees will fluctuate on a year-to-year basis but for 2019 the FVC base fee has been determined to be $691.59 (subsidized down to $591.59) for players in the U13/U14 age categories and $799.46 (subsidized down to $699.46) for players in the U15+ categories. These fees are lower than in 2018 and include more (cost of Provincials and Cranbrook Cup now included).

The club is excited to have run successful camp and recreational programs and done enough fundraising to be able to offer the $100 subsidy this year.  This level of base fee and subsidy is not guaranteed to be consistent/available every year but FVC is working hard to try and make the club as accessible as possible by keeping fees as low as possible.

The FVC portion of fees include the tournament fees and coaching costs for ALL Volleyball Alberta Premier tournaments and Provincial championships. In the U13/U14 age categories fees also include the tournament/coaching costs for the Cranbrook Cup event. If teams decide (as a team) to participate in additional events or Volleyball Canada Nationals the event & coaching costs will be separate and shared across that individual team.

Families should also budget the cost of travel, accommodation and food for Premier and Provincial championship events during the season. Some players/parents stay with friends/family in Calgary & Edmonton and many stay in a team organized hotel. Typically games start early on Saturday so travelling later on Friday and staying 2 nights in Calgary/Edmonton is common.

Yearly FVC fees are determined by a rigorous budgeting exercise taking into consideration a number of factors including:
– Anticipated number of teams and anticipated number of players per team
– Number and location of tournaments
– Coaching costs (Travel Expenses and Honorarium)
– Uniform & Equipment requirements
– Facilities requirements
– General overhead for operating the club (Website, Volleyball Alberta Registrations, Accounting/Legal, etc)

If costs are a barrier to participation in the club, we encourage families to pursue support programs such as:
– Emily Brydon Youth Foundation: http://emilybrydonyouthfoundation.com/
– Canadian Tire Jumpstart: http://jumpstart.canadiantire.ca/en.html
– Kidsport Canada: http://www.kidsportcanada.ca/british-columbia/
– Just 4 Kics: http://www.just4kics.ca/
– Athletics 4 Kids: http://www.a4k.ca/

We had a number of FVC athletes supported via these programs in past years.

Official club tryouts (if numbers/interest level is high in certain age categories) and registrations can only happen during the official Volleyball Alberta tryout period which begins on November 26th. The club is currently working on booking gym time for tryouts. Tentative tryout dates are the afternoons of Sunday, Dec 2nd and Sunday, Dec 9th. More details will be shared when official tryouts dates/times/locations are established. We anticipate a $10 fee per player for tryouts (would provide access to both sessions) to cover the cost of facilities rentals.
