Club volleyball is a cheaper sport in comparison to other organized sports. Club fees can range from $500-$1,500 for the season (which includes, but not limited to, jerseys, insurance, practices, clothing). Each team will collect a separate fee for things such as extra tournaments, coach travel expenses, team meals, etc. These fees do not include any athlete travel expenses.
YES! Queen City Volleyball has its own tournaments which your team can host. We also encourage our teams to do their own fundraising such as steak nights, bottle drives, etc. Fundraising is typically done to offset the team fee costs, as fundraising is not done by the club and cannot have the funds applied against club fees.
Because QCVC is a non-profit organization, a lot of our coaches are parent volunteers. QCVC does not place athletes with parent-coaches, but rather parent-coaches with athletes post-evaluation. Therefore, we can’t advise which teams our coaches are with.
Each request for an athlete to play up will be dependent on their placement at evaluations, on a case by case basis. QCVC does not encourage players to play in higher age groups. QCVC encourages athletes to compete in their proper age class to ensure adherence to the LTAD model and the QCVC curriculum. In special cases, the club may choose to offer a roster spot to an underage athlete (ex: a 16u athlete is offered a roster spot on the 17u team). The club will initiate this process with the athlete at tryouts, after discussion between QCVC head coaches of the involved age classes.
Atomic Volleyball is our developmental volleyball program that has been outlined by Volleyball Canada and is a part of the LTAD (Long Term Athlete Development) program. Atomic is for ages 9-12 just learning the basics of volleyball and used a pre-cursor to our competitive program.
Our Atomic program is open to both girls and boys.
