Columbia JVBC 2019-2020 Season

Practice changes

Due to changes in the school schedule, practice times are changing (including times and days for all our teams this week.) Always double check our practice schedule!

A note about calendars

Since several people reported time zone problems, we turned off the ability to click on an event from any page of our website. Upcoming events still scroll at the bottom of every page, but for more inforrmation... please click on our Schedule page and check the list for any updated information for tournaments OR the calendar at the bottom of the list for practice and meeting information (events can still be clicked there for locations and other information.)

Columbia Android AppIt's important to check our schedule page often for updates and changes.

Our website works great on mobile devices too, but for an even faster experience checking the calendar... try out Android app!



Yes, we know... it's endless. Still, Players must have turned in both their Medical Release form and Parent/Spectator Code of Conduct form to their team's Coach in order to practice. Make sure you are able to participate at practice this week!

Schedule updates

Our team schedules are more than 75% complete now! There are lots of travel updates on our schedule page. Parents should make reservations and travel plans now for those tournaments where it shows you are released. (Including NW Jamboree and U-14 Power League Qualifier #1)

It's Chaperones time!

Every Columbia team is required by our region to have a "Team Chaperone." Since Columbia teams leave player travel to the supervision of families, our Chaperones don't have a lot of responsibilities. Chaperones MAY be asked to be present at Tournemant Coaches meetings with their coach and sign the roster at some tournaments. They can relay site rules back to the rest of the parents after Coaches meetings. Chaperones MAY help provide supervision of players if requested by one of our coaches while at a tournament as well. Coaches may also ask Chaperones to help relay tournament results to Chris for our website.

If you've been asked to be the Chaperone for your daughter's team, please do the following:

  • E-Mail Chris and let him know you are the chosen one (if you don't already show on the list below)
  • Sign up on Webpoint (using the links on the front of the Evergreen Region website) and register for a Chaperone Membership (please! be sure to set your Club to Columbia Jrs) and you will need to complete the background check authorization. Pay your membership fee online, and John L will reduce your January player fees to reimburse you. EV Region help and instructions are online.
  • Complete the "Chaperone Responsibilities" form and return to your team's coach.

Team Chaperones:

  • 12-Black - Jennifer Meinecke
  • 14-Red - Melissa Wiley
  • 14-Black - Lisa Scott
  • 15-Black - Coralee Fisher
  • 16-Red - Renee Krovoshein

EV Regionals travel update

ALL Columbia teams will be playing at the Evergreen Regional Championships in April. Because all age levels are now on the same weekend, we expect Spokane hotel space to be tight. Although we can't yet know where any team will be playing, we expect them all to be playing along the interstate corridor with the Convention Center at one end and the HUB facility at the other. Any hotel you choose between downtown and the Valley Mall area should be fine. Don't wait too late to find your hotel space. Check our Travel page for additional information including dates of play.

Are you ready for play!?

Players! Have you been paying attention to our website? You should have completed the following steps to prepare for practice (and tournaments in just a few weeks!)

EVERY player needs to complete the above steps. If you've missed any, catch up now! (All uniform items and bag are included in your club fees, no additional charges.)

Choose your jersey sizes now

BalboaTECHNO VOLLEY V LONG SLEEVE JERSEYAll players can choose their jersey sizes now by using this form. Every player gets two different jerseys to keep. Jerseys are included in your club fees. Please get your sizes in asap. Thanks!

(Jerseys may differ from what is shown in the picture depending on styles available to us. Colors are up to John. Jersey on the left is probably correct.)

Happy Thanksgiving from Columbia!
