U-12 Player Update

Players who have been named to Columbia 12-Black Elite should do the following:

Upgrade their USAV tryout membership to Regular - Junior Girls. Click USAV Webpoint to login or create a membership.

Select Columbia Jrs as their Club in their USAV Membership. (We can't see them as members until you do this step.)

Select their choices (at least three) for jersey number using the link on the front page of our website.

Select their uniform sizes using the link on the front page of our website.

Pay their initial fee ($350) at their first practice. This team will practice Sunday, 11/18 (see our calendar), but players who will be out of town already for Thanksgiving should notify their coach they won't be at practice. See our Fees page from the website menu for additional payments.

WATCH our website closely for additional information!

Columbia made one additional U-14 offer, and two additional U-13 offers this morning. If you have any questions and haven't already accepted a spot on a team, contact Chris - This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. for help.

Columbia 12-Black Elite team meeting

Columbia 12-Black Elite will be helping with our U-17/18 registration for tryouts on Sunday, Nov. 11. Players (and parents) should be at TC Prep by 10:15am. They will have a team meeting right at 11:10am with coaches, and to provide uniform sizes and numbers for the upcoming season. They should be finished by 11:45am. Let Chris (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.) know if you can't be there, so he can arrange to get your size and number information.

Something big is coming!

Columbia JVBC has big plans for the 2019 season! (Hint: it's been a long time coming...)

Get ready for our tryout announcements this week. We're eager to see everyone and start another great club season!

We have a new SENIOR Coach!

Ok, maybe he's not "new", but he's certainly a great coach... If you are at the Emerald City Classic today, find Coach Russ and wish him Happy Birthday!

College Traveling Camp is BACK!!!

The best local volleyball camp is back again this summer. Two sessions (all skills and positions)... do both or just one.

Led by one of the best coaches around... former coach at WSU and UNLV, Dr. Mashallah Farokhmanesh. These camps are a tremendous value for preparing for school season. Download the full camp brochure here. These camps are open to all players (regardless of club teams or high school programs.)
