For parents who have not been involved with Columbia in prior years, our fees are similar to other clubs in our area. Columbia teams generally play a much more competitive schedule on the same fee structure however, and play more tournaments than most other club teams. Because of that, our cost per tournament is usually much lower than other clubs, but travel expenses for parents who attend all the tournaments are sometimes higher.

What's included: 2 sets of uniforms (jerseys and spandex), warmup jacket, 1 team bag, 1 warmup team shirt, 1 warmup shorts, team/player insurance, equipment, gym fees, coach travel expenses (Columbia coaches are all volunteers and are not paid), tournament fees (Columbia teams usually play a minimum of 10 tournaments, but (for instance) all our teams played more tournaments than that in 2013 and all but two in 2014.) Note: clothing items included may change from year to year. Developmental teams receive spandex and t-shirts instead of the full clothing/bag package due to reduced fees.

What's not included: Player USAV membership, player travel expenses, socks, shoes, kneepads. (Families are also responsible for their own travel arrangements.)

Post-season: Teams that qualify and play post-Memorial Day tournaments (AAU Nationals in Orlando, USAV Nationals, Summer Soiree Invitational in Disneyland, Volleyball Festival, etc.) will pay additional fees to cover entry and coach travel for those tournaments.

Payment schedule: Players will pay a startup fee due at commitment (or shortly after), and three monthly payments in Jan, Feb, and March. (Families who need assistance may request extended schedules by contacting Club Director John L.) Note: Developmental teams have payments in only January and February (after the initial payment.)

Fundraising: Columbia does not require fundraising by players (some clubs do), but individual teams/players are free to do fundraising on their own if they wish. (Columbia will provide support for these efforts.)

Scholarships: Columbia does not carry funds over from year-to-year (our budget each year is done team-by-team) and therefore doesn't have funding for scholarships. There are scholarship resources within the Evergreen Region. More information can be found here.

Checks or money orders should be made payable to: Columbia Junior VBC. We reserve the right to increase/reduce club fees and payment schedule at any time within the season as required based on the tournament fees and expenses. Every attempt will be made to provide each club member with adequate prior notice and justification of any increase or change. We work very hard to keep our fees as low as possible while still providing the very best competitive experience for our players and families.
