WELCOME To Club Selah Volleyball

We will be having tryouts for Selah School Distric Players Only for the 2021-2022 season. Tryouts will be on November 7, 2021. Times TBD. Required online registration for tryouts will be posted here in October.

Frequently Asked Questions:

Q: What age division is my player? Scroll down to view the Age Definitions for the 2021-22 season. Find your player's birth year and month in the chart to determine division.

Q: How long is the season?
November: Tryouts
December: Practices start and the Players/Coaches/Team Reps attend required Score Ref clinics.
January to March: Tournaments; some older teams play into April/May/June.

Q: What days are tournaments? Tournaments are almost always on Sundays. Doors open at 7 or 8am with the tournament lasting until between 4-5pm; it’s a full-day of volleyball. Some tournaments are two-day events over the weekend (if chosen)

Q: Where do the teams travel? Previous destinations include WA cities along the Seattle/Olympia corridor, Wenatchee, Leavenworth, Othello, Spokane, Tri-Cities, and Walla Walla. There are closer tournaments in Ellensburg, Sunnyside, Selah and Yakima. Younger teams typically travel less often and less distance.

We've had teams travel into Idaho and Oregon; and we've also had Oregon and Idaho teams attend our tournaments in Selah.

Q: When are practices? Typically, each team will practice twice a week from 7:30pm to 9:30pm.

Practices are at Selah High School. We are not a school club so our practice days available vary week-to-week depending on the Selah High School sports calendar and when the gyms are available after all the high school teams are done.

Q: How much does it cost? Depends on the team and the number of tournaments.

Season Estimates

This is a historical view of previous seasons. Travel and food costs are not included here. For U18, the below cost does not include the Spring/Summer extended travel tournament trip.

U12  $400 - $450  Tournament days: 4-6
U14  $450 - $600  Tournament days: 7-10

U16  $600 - $700  Tournament days: 8-11
U18  $700 +          Tournament days: 9-12


The remaining balance can be paid in three equal monthly payments over the season starting in January. A $10 monthly fee is added if not paid in full.

Q: Is the cost paid immediately? No. The $60 USA Volleyball player membership is due immediately after teams are formed in November. A $200 commitment deposit is due at the All-Club meeting after teams are set and the tournament schedules are presented.

The commitment deposit indicates that the player fee will be paid to the club in full regardless of finishing the season.

Q: Who runs Club Selah? Parents and Volunteers. A Steering Committee composed of Team Reps and Volunteers elects a Club Director and other positions as needed. Each team is required to have a Team Rep and at least one Chaperone (typically these are parents).

The Team Rep and Chaperone(s) manage the team including: help register for tournaments, prepare budget, confirm travel arrangements, assign food for tournaments, oversee team and coach in general. Read below about Team Rep and Chaperone duties.

We use SportsEngine, an online application, to organize each team roster. It allows the directors/coaches/chaperones to communicate within the teams by email and text to players and parents.

Other features:

  1. Manage & display each teams' practice schedule/tournament schedule with location maps, times, and event notes.
  2. Player attendance tracker to events. 
  3. Tracker for training and document requirements.
  4. Multiple adults can be linked to the player accounts with unique logins which allows everyone to see the same information.
  5. Online collection of player fees.

Q: Are the coaches paid? Yes. Our coaches are required to be IMPACT & SafeSport training certified with USA Volleyball. Our coaches have multiple years’ experience with club ball and many have coached at the high school level.

Q: How many teams are there? We usually have between five and seven: two U12, two U14, two U16, and one U18. We add/subtract teams depending on turnout and available coaches. Teams will have no more than ten players each.

Q: Can a player be younger than 12? Yes! We have players as young as 9-years-old on our beginner U12 team.

Q: Who sanctions the volleyball play? Club Selah is a member of the Evergreen Region Volleyball Association (ERVA) within USA Volleyball (USAV). USA Volleyball is the same organization that runs the Olympic volleyball teams.

Q: What about clothing and uniforms? The player cost includes jersey, whistle, and spandex. Other optional/voluntary clothing including sweatshirts, t-shirts, backpacks, socks, etc. are decided by the team. Team/Fan apparel will be available for online purchase.

Q: What about medical equipment and insurance? Each team is required to travel with a team bag which includes a full first aid kit and many other travel items. Medical insurance is provided within the mandatory USAV player membership. This insurance is secondary to personal medical insurance. Club Selah has its own insurance fund to help mitigate the cost of a player missing at least one full calendar month or more of the season.

Q: What is SafeSport? SafeSport is a mandatory training for our Coaches, Team Reps, and Chaperones. The training seeks to create a healthy, supportive environment of all club participants. Preventing child sexual abuse, bullying, hazing & harassment. Recognizing emotional, physical and sexual misconduct are all part of the program mandated by USA Volleyball.
