How much does it cost to play club volleyball at BVC?

TENTATIVE FEES (per player): we will have Parent Info Meetings prior to tryout that will give the specific 2022 season fees, what all is included in that fee, tentative tournament schedule, etc.
10U-11U: $795
12U: $1350
13U: $1600
14U: $2500
15U-18U: $2800


*All teams have the option of upgrading for additional fees. This includes traveling more extensively than regional or attending 3-day qualifier tournaments. Upgraded fees will be billed as a 5th payment and cannot be determined until the teams have been finalized and a team meeting takes place for all players/parents to understand and agree to the commitment*

Price includes all required fees to BVC for playing on a club travel team:
Volleyball Dedicated Building, Uniform Package, Tournament Entry Fees, Coaching Fees, Ref/Score Training, Position Specific Training, Gym Fees, Insurance, Administrative Fees, etc.
There are no additional required fees owed to BVC other than what is posted above and in the case of a team upgrading their schedule (based on team strength). USAV $50 membership fee is paid directly to USAV/SRVA. Families are responsible for their players travel/food/lodging at tournaments

*All BVC fees can be made in 4 equal monthly installments beginning on “commitment day”*

What happens next?

  • Positions in the club (anticipated teams) will be posted on our website within 24 hours of the conclusion of tryouts (in most cases much earlier)
    • Please click on the accept/decline link we email you to respond to your invitation to play with BVC.
    • A coach or club admin will call or send an email when teams have posted to give you team specific information, such as anticipated teammates, coaching staff, tournament play level, etc. These are tentative until teams are finalized.
    • You will also be able to talk with the anticipated coach and they can answer any questions you may have! Please do this before making a decision about ANY CLUB!
    • You will have until 7:00pm on Commitment Day to submit your decision to BVC. We will move players to fill vacant spots, as necessary.
  • Commitment Day is the FIRST day that any USAV club can require you to make a decision & accept money from you toward club fees.
    • If you accept your spot, the player and one parent are required to come to BVC between 4pm-7pm on Commitment Day. (drop in during this timeframe)
    • At this time, the player will try on apparel for the uniform package, submit remaining paperwork, and turn in first payment (approximately 1/4 of your total dues. Any discount for paying in full at this time will be communicated to you in advance). 
  • Practice schedules are determined after we have established the final number of teams in each age division.
  • You will have a team meeting within the first few weeks of practice to determine your tournament schedule weekends (May not have the exact tournament/locations finalized…but at least the weekends you will try to play). This is also a time to meet the other parents and learn more about your coaching staff.
