Fall Ball 2021

NorCal Volleyball Club is pleased to offer the 13th Annual Fall Ball season.

Our Fall Ball program is one of the East Bay’s premier and most competitive Fall Ball programs amongst local clubs. It is also one of the most popular programs at NorCal for Pre-High School aged girls, selling out every single year.

Our Fall Ball program is a 10-week competitive “skill development” season that runs from Aug 3 – Oct 13.

Eight groups of fourteen players (8×14=112) will be organized into eight teams that will practice, develop skills, and scrimmage. The eight groups will be organized by skill level.

*Week 1 and 2 of Fall Ball being a big movement week for all Fall Ball sessions. Girls may be asked to move from one session to another, so please be aware to keep both time slots conflict-free in case your player must move from an earlier session to the later session and vice versa.


Registration and Assessment

Fall Ball 12s/Juniors will have a 56 player capacity. 7th/8th Grade Fall Ball will have a 112 player capacity (56 players per session). 

All Fall Ball sessions are filled on a “first-come, first-served” basis. Spots will fill quickly and those who are not able to secure a spot can be placed on a waitlist if desired. More information about waitlisted players is outlined below.

Assessment of players and court placement will be determined within the first two weeks of Fall Ball. Movement may occur between courts/sessions to ensure that all players are surrounded by teammates of their caliber and to keep skill levels consistent across courts.

Substitution List

Both programs, will also 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.  $25/session rate for Fall Ball and $20/session rate for Fall Ball for Juniors.

NorCal waitlisted players will be placed on courts using a “self-assessment” questionnaire, asking questions such as years of club experience, previous clubs played for, specified position, etc.

Important Dates

*If there is a parent meeting date set, we will add it here.
