Cal Coast VBC runs teams for boys and girls ages 18 under and have had players as young as 8 on our 12 and under teams. Players are grouped by age and skill level. It is possible to play in an older age group, but not a younger one.

How much does it cost?

Cost information for all or our team types are found under the Club Info - Fees tab on the Cal Coast VBC website. Remember - When comparing prices, it's important to look at everything that is included for the price, not just the price itself. Make sure you're comparing "apples to apples" for the best value.

When and where are practices held?

Team practice days are set the beginning of the season.  Times and days are set with the following considerations; coach’s schedule and court availability. Weekend practices are used for many of our Practice-Only teams and are scheduled throughout the day. The practice schedule for the season will be posted online after tryouts but before team commitments.
Team Team Type Practice Length Days of the Week Start Times
Girls - All Teams Practice 1.5 hrs x 2 days 1 Weekday & 1 Weekend day 5:00pm or 7:00pm

What is the difference between Travel and Practice-Only teams?

Practice-Only teams will practice two times a week without any tournament travel. They will enjoy inter-club scrimmages and other club events. Our Travel teams practice two times a week, enjoy inter-club scrimmages and other club events, and also participate in the Southern California Volleyball Association (SCVA) sanctioned tournament schedule. To see a comprehensive list, make sure to visit our Fees & Highlights page for more information.

Why should I choose to be on a Travel Team?

We realize the level of commitment it takes to be on a travel team. The time, effort, and monetary commitments are big, but so is the payoff. Travel teams enjoy, on average, 9 SCVA sanctioned tournaments. Some of them are multi-day tournaments. This doesn’t even include the intra-club scrimmages and other club events. All tournaments are in addition to practices. All of this translates into LOTS of playing time and opportunities to get better. By challenging yourself and your teammates, you can take your volleyball skills to the next level. While our Practice-Only teams are a fantastic option for those with busy family schedules, the Travel Teams enjoy a much higher jump in volleyball skill development. Talk to one of our coaches to learn more about what a Travel Team can offer you.

When and where are tournaments played?

Tournaments start the beginning of January and run through May.  All tournaments are held on Saturdays and Sundays.  SCVA tournaments are located in the Los Angeles area.  Majority of tournaments are within the Los Angles area, though each age group should expect to play in one tournament near San Diego. Most tournaments begin at 8:00am but PM sessions are sometimes used as well.

What is the difference between Cal Coast VBC and SCVA?

Cal Coast VBC Volleyball Club is a member of the Southern California Volleyball Association. The governing body for the Southern California Region is the SCVA, under the direction of USA Volleyball.  So, SCVA is Cal Coast VBC’s governing body.  Cal Coast VBC and SCVA are TWO SEPARATE entities. 

What if I missed tryouts?  Can players be added to teams after the tryouts?

Players can be added after tryouts if there are available spots on teams.  Those who have missed tryouts should contact the Cal Coast VBC office to find out availability by calling (805) 489-9931 or emailing Coach Erin at EAlves@calcoastvbc.com

Can multi-sport athletes play?

Yes, multi-sport athletes can play club volleyball.  We do our best to accommodate each of our athletes.
