Fall Ball

NorCal Volleyball Club offers a Fall Ball season for pre-high school aged girls. As many of you know, this is a VERY popular program at NorCal! The Fall Ball season starts in mid-August and is a ten week long practice season that ends a few weeks prior to the start of club season tryouts. There are two fall ball programs. One titled, NorCal Fall Ball, for girls entering the 7th or 8th grade in the fall and another titled, NorCal Juniors Fall Ball, for girls entering 6th grade or below in the fall. A portion of the available roster positions in both the NorCal Fall Ball and NorCal Juniors Fall Ball programs will be reserved for NorCal Volleyball Club players from the previous 2015-2016 club season. Enrollment for these spots will open up July 9th and priority spots must be claimed by 11:59 pm on July 10, 2016. Previous 2015-2016 NorCal families should register at: enroll.norcalvbc.com The program will become an option for 2015-2016 NorCal families ONLY on July 9th and will continue to be an option until 11:59pm on July 10th. Remaining roster positions for the NorCal Juniors Fall Ball program will be filled on a first-come-first-served basis starting on July 11th at noon. Remaining roster positions for the NorCal Fall Ball program (7th and 8th grade) will be determined by player evaluations on Saturday morning, July 23rd from 8 to 11 am at NorCal’s Pleasanton Facility located at 7069 Commerce Circle, Pleasanton. Evaluations are free to attend, but you must pre-register for the evaluation. Another announcement will go out July 11th about how to register for the evaluation. Both programs maintain a pay-as-you-go Substitution List. Substitutes are invited to participate, one session at a time, to fill in for the regular roster players who have planned absences.

NORCAL JUNIORS FALL BALL SESSION Up to 84 players entering 6th grade or less (approximately 7-11 yrs old) in the Fall. Tuesday AND/OR Thursday nights from Aug. 16 - Oct. 20, from either 5:30-7 or 7-8:30, based on skill level. For this age, there is an option to participate in the one-day per week (part-time) program or the two-day per week (full-time) program, although priority registration are given to those players who play two-days per week (full-time). In other words, a full-time registration will bump a part-time registration if the class is full. Cost "full time": $450 ($15/hr) Cost "part-time": $250 ($16.67/hour) NORCAL FALL BALL SESSION (7th and 8th grades)84 players who will be in 7th or 8th grade (approximately 12-14 years old) in the Fall. Monday AND Wednesday nights from Aug.15 - Oct. 19, from either 5:30-7:15 or 7:15-9:00, based on skill level. For this age group, we only offer a full-time program. Cost: $500 ($14.28/hr)In both the Fall Ball and Juniors Sessions groups of roughly fourteen players will be organized into teams that will practice and scrimmage. The groups will be organized by skill level. The players with the higher skills will practice at the later time slot. NorCal reserves the right to move players between teams and time slots depending on changing relative skill level and progress through the 10-week season. We anticipate much more movement in the Fall Ball Sessions than we do in the Juniors Fall Ball Sessions.
