Role of the Clubs

Junior volleyball in the region is organized around clubs, which are independent organizations that provide training, coaching, education, and administrative support to the players and coaches in their system.  To improve the quality of clubs in the region and to provide standards in the delivery of the volleyball experience in the region, Clubs are licensed to operate under the name of Puget Sound Region and USA Volleyball.

Role of the Club Director

Club Directors are the individuals who are responsible for all aspects of club and team management. This is not necessarily the responsibility of the coach. The team or club director is the official liaison between the team or club and the REGION.  

The club director’s responsibilities include, but are not limited to:

· Accountability for all matters relating to registration and fees, for players, coaches, team representatives, and chaperones.  This includes ensuring that all adult members associated with their junior program have submitted to and passed a background screening test before they participate with the club or team.

· Eligibility of team and/or club for PSR‐USAV and national events that the team/club may participate in.  

 · Ensuring that all information or documentation sent by PSR‐USAV to the team(s) is distributed to each and every team member. It is also the director or representative’s responsibility to ensure that all necessary information, documentation, monies, etc., are forwarded to the PSR‐USAV office in a timely manner.

· Directors should advise the PSR‐USAV office of any corrections or errors, and provide completed rosters to tournament hosts in a timely manner.


USAV Coaches Requirements

· All junior coaches must be registered in the “Adult Affiliated with Junior Membership” category; regardless of whether or not they are playing on an adult USAV team.

· All coaches must dress appropriately at tournaments and practices.         

· All adults associated with junior volleyball in any capacity (coach, administrator, chaperone, tournament director) must be a registered USAV member and subjected to a Background Screening test.  Cost is included in the region Membership fees.

· Each club that registers a coach certifies that the coach meets these requirements.  Any team utilizing an ineligible coach will be sanctioned.

· Juniors under 18 may be Assistant Coaches in the region, but may not be Head Coach.

Rock Volleyball Tryouts

Each year Rock Volleyball Club will hold open tryouts to select players for our teams.  We anticipate that we will furnish enough players through our tryout process to create teams for many age groups including 12s, 14s, 16s, and 18s.

Our tryout process will comply with the USAV‐PSR tryout policies that include date limitations, tryout fees and steps regarding the registration process.  These policies may change from year to year. 

We will announce our tryout dates and times by posting notice on our website, the region’s website and other social media.  We may also choose to advertise our tryouts in local newspaper ads or printed flyers.

Once a player has been selected for one of our teams, Rock Volleyball Club will make an offer of membership for that player to join our club for this season.  That player and her/his parents will be asked to verbally accept the offer.  If accepted, the player will have up until the signing date to formalize the agreement by submitting a signed club contract and making a financial deposit.  If the offer is denied or deferred, ROCK VOLLEYBALL CLUB may reserve the right to offer the spot to another player.   


Tuition Payments

At tryouts, Rock Volleyball Club will present an estimated tuition cost per player for the season.  The tuition cost will cover the coaches’ pay, gym and equipment fees, uniforms, USAV registration, tournament entry fees, shared administration cost.

Once a player and her parents (or financially responsible party) have decided to play for Rock Volleyball Club they will be required to either; 1) make a lump sum payment for the entire tuition cost or 2) make the initial deposit (varies per team) and pay the rest before February 1st.

Financial Commitments

Full price can be paid upfront at signing. If you choose to make two payments, ROCK VOLLEYBALL CLUB will attempt to charge the credit card on record per our standard membership agreement.   If attempt to charge credit card fails, ROCK VOLLEYBALL CLUB will contact member via email and/or phone to remedy payment.  If monthly payment remains outstanding by the (30th) day of the month without mutual agreement between Club Director & Member with a remedy for payment, then member and player will be placed on a “not in good standing” list and that player will not be allowed to practice or train until the account is up to date – no exceptions.

Online payments can be made on our secure website (

Make checks payable to ROCK VOLLEYBALL CLUB and indicate the players name on the check to ensure proper credit.   Give payments directly to Club Director. Do not give payments to any of the staff coaches.   

Club administration fees and operational expenses are distributed equally to each participant regardless of the length of the season. Parents of players who withdraw from the club before the end of their season will be required to pay for their child share of the expenses for the entire season, regardless of the reason. Circumstances that preclude a player from participating (injury, a schedule conflict, etc.) do not preclude Member from payment obligation.

A player with an account that is not in good standing will be denied the privilege of playing in a tournament and participating in practice or training until the account is up to date – no exceptions.  A player can return to full participation after Member’s account is up to date or with Club Director’s approval provided a remedy for payment has been agreed to.  This policy will be heavily enforced throughout the season.

Final payment is due by February 1st.  Unpaid balances are subject to an additional 3% simple interest charge on the remainder of the balance per month until the balance is paid.  Accounts that remain unpaid after the February 1st due date will be considered “Not in Good Standing” and will be reported to the USAV to prevent further participation in the USAV club volleyball program until the account is settled.

Team Practices

Practice and tournament schedules will be distributed to the players at the beginning of the season and will be updated and/or revised as necessary.  All teams are expected to practice approximately 4‐6 hours per week.   Coaches may elect to hold additional practices to prepare for major tournaments or national qualifier events.   

Holidays & Break

 Rock Volleyball Club will also observe the following holidays (i.e. Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Year’s).  Rock Volleyball Club will also observe a mandatory rest week, typically around the Spring Break season. 

Practice Facilities

Most practices will be held at Mossyrock School District. Each team with have set locations and times for practices. These are subject to change but will remain on the same school campus.

Rules of Practice

The purpose of practice is:

 To provide learning experiences through which the individual may expand her physical, emotional and mental capacity and to mold a group of individuals into a team.  To prepare for situations that may occur during tournament play.

To achieve these goals, all players must comply with the following practice rules:

· Each practice session is very important to the development of our athletes. Coaches also prepare practice plans according to how many players will be attending. It is expected that each player will prioritize her personal schedule and exercise good time management skills, so that scheduling conflicts are kept to a minimum.

· All athletes are expected to make every effort to attend every practice. If a player must miss practice, a telephone call (not email) to their respected coach is mandatory at least 4 hours before practice. Only after attempting and failing to reach the coach, can a player contact a teammate to pass the word along to the coach. Whatever the reason, if an athlete misses practice, her playing time may be affected.

 · Advanced notice is mandatory if missing practice or a tournament due to vacation, or school functions, etc.

· A player is allowed five (5) absences from practices due to illness, family or school functions.  If the player misses one (1) more practice, then coach must have a mandatory meeting with the player.  If that player misses practice again then the coach must notify the club director and an appropriate disciplinary action will be taken, which may include dismissal from the Team.

· A player is allowed two (2) absences from tournaments due to illness, family or school functions.  If the player misses one (1) more tournament, then coach must have a mandatory meeting with the player.  If that player misses another tournament, then the coach must notify the club director and an appropriate disciplinary action will be taken, which may include dismissal from the team.     

 · Scheduled practice time is the start time, not the arrival time.  Plan to arrive at practice 15 minutes prior to the start time. Allow time to put on kneepads, change shoes, be taped if needed, set up the equipment, and do warm‐up routines.

· Please bring your own water bottle to practice and tournaments. No jewelry is allowed to be worn at practice or competition.

· Volleyball shoes should only be worn on the volleyball court.  Carry shoes into practice and tournaments to ensure the facility courts remain clean and safe and to prolong the use of your volleyball shoes.  

· Please do not bring friends or other possible distractions with you to practice.

· All athletes are required to help set up poles, nets and accessories and put away volleyballs and other equipment.

· Practices are the time to learn and improve on skills. There will be no horseplay or goofing off during the scheduled practices. It is the responsibility of each player to work hard, to work with teammates, and to be “coach‐able”.

· Players are expected to hustle, jog/run appropriately to the assigned task. This includes shagging balls, returning to the end line, when in a drill, etc.

· At all times, put forth maximum effort to perform to the best of your ability. In every drill especially when tired, attempt to play the ball, using the correct techniques.

· Players are expected to control negative emotions brought on by frustration or fatigue. Over use of negative words or body language toward self, teammates, or coaches will not be tolerated. Failure to maintain emotional control will lead to your dismissal from all of part of practice.

· Players are expected to act quickly upon instructions and ask questions when they don’t understand. Follow through in a timely manner on all requests from coaches, including administrative paperwork type of activities.

· Parents are expected to pick up their daughter promptly at the end of practice. Coaches will not leave until all players have left.

· In case of inclement weather, a coach or someone from a phone chain, will notify you of practice cancellation. During winter storm conditions, if practice is not cancelled, it is the parents/players discretion not to attend practice. This will be considered an excused absence; however, communication with the coach is still required.

· Generally, practices are “open” and parents are welcome to observe. However, no one is permitted to have any interactions with the players other than the coaching staff.  Parents are not permitted on the court, unless requested by the coaching staff. There may be times a coach will call for a closed practice in which case the parents and non‐members of the team are not allowed in the gym. This occurs when the coach feels the intensity of the teams’ performance or level of concentration is lacking.

Playing Time

We do not guarantee playing time for everyone.  Players are evaluated on their athletic ability and improvement of skill level, performance in practice, ability to get the job done in competition, and overall contribution, in whatever capacity, to the success of the team.  During a tournament coaches are constantly adjusting and evaluating lineups which means some players will receive more court time than others.         

Your tuition only guarantees practice time and instruction by qualified and experienced coaches, not a specified amount of time spent in tournament play.  Coaches will provide for a fair amount of playing time for every player, but not an “equal” amount. It is expected that players understand and accept their role as defined by their coaches, and concede that the overall performance of the team has priority over the individual needs. If you would like to talk to your coach about this, please refer to the player to coach communication section on the most effective way to approach your coach on this subject. A player’s court time will be at the discretion of the coaches and will make every effort to utilize each athlete’s ability to best serve the team’s needs.


Court time will be decided by:

· The level of the competition

· The ability of improvement of skill level of the athlete

· The athletes practice attendance and attitude

· The athlete’s ability to perform at the necessary level

· How the athlete adds or distracts from the team’s performance, compared to a teammate that plays the same position

· The needs of the team

· The importance of the event

· Players may also be required to play a new position. Players need to be flexible with new options.

Do not approach a coach during tournament regarding playing time issues.  Wait until after the tournament is over before approaching the coach.

Multiple Sport Athletes

Sports and activities are integral parts of the school experience. However, building team chemistry and team cohesion for competition is very difficult if practices are missed.  Here are our expectations for a multi‐sport athlete who chooses to participate in a school sport during club season, along with their parents;  

· Identify & communicate to the coach which sport has priority.  

· Determine the practice or tournaments that may be missed, arrived to late, or departed from early.

· Understand that athletes perform best when they are at the top of their game physically and mentally. The body can only handle a certain amount of stress within a given time period, before illness or injury may occur. Athletes must take these factors into account when scheduling activities.

· It is key to communicate to the coaches of both sports how you expect to realistically meet the expectations of all involved.

Tournament Guidelines for Parents

 · Most gyms that we compete in do not have adequate seating around the court or team camp, so we recommend that you bring your own chairs unless told otherwise by your coach beforehand.  

· We also recommend that you pack beverages (i.e. water) and a cooler for your athlete for the day of the tournament, enough to last all day.

· We recommend that special attention be given to the type of food consumed not only during tournaments, but during the entire season. Eating habits should be evaluated and modified in order to improve performance and achieve good health.  

· Do not bring pillows, sleeping bags or blankets for the purpose of taking a nap during tournaments or matches.  Get plenty of sleep the night before.  

· Homework, games and books are recommended for downtime during the tournament. Arrive early so you can help set up your team area.

Tournament Rules for Players

· It is especially important to act and perform at your best, both on and off the court. This is when your physical and mental discipline will be put to the test.

· All athletes are expected to be in the gym, ready to warm up, at the scheduled start time. This usually means one hour prior to the scheduled start of play. Players are to be aware of whom, where, and when they play, in addition to the teams’ officiating schedule.

· All players are required to officiate at the tournaments as required by the USAV regional rules.  The coach will rotate officiating responsibilities.

· All players are required to stay at the tournament until the entire team has been “excused” by the coach.  

· Proper conduct is expected from all members of the club at all times. This also means treating supporters from other clubs, other parents, and officials with respect. Only the captain and coach shall address any referees.

· Athletes are required to remain at the tournament site until excused by the coach.

· Officiating is the shared responsibility of the entire team. All ROCK VOLLEYBALL CLUB players are required to be trained in officiating, scorekeeping, line judging, score flipping, and libero tracking.

· No headsets are to be worn or cell phones used during officiating assignments. This also includes cell phones at the score table.

· No cell phones on the court.    

· Each coach will determine a procedure that athletes will follow for refereeing assignments. Players are required to stay until the entire team has completed their assignments. (Except in the case of a true emergency).

· The bench area will remain neat throughout the match. Warm‐ups will be folded and placed behind the bench with other personal belongings.  

· All players are responsible for cleaning up their area before leaving, with special attention given to rules about food or drink in the gym. Players are not to leave until their coach excuses them.

· Coaches have the option of not allowing the use of headsets at tournaments, “As it may set the players apart from the team”.

· Players are responsible for their uniform and gear. If misplaced or lost during a tournament, you may not be allowed to compete. The team, not the coaches, is collectively responsible to keep track of balls and gather them before the start of the match.

· Players must be mentally and physically prepared to enter the game whether your role is that of a starter or substitute.

· Players are expected to suppress displaying negative emotion during a match. Loss of control will result in your removal from the game and/or court areas.

· Begging or arguing with officials for calls will not be tolerated.

· Parents must notify the coach, prior to taking a player from any tournament. It is disappointing to forfeit a match or change a line up because the coach is missing players.

· If an issue arises during a tournament that cannot be resolved and in the judgment of the coach is detrimental to the team, the player will be sent home until the coach and club director can address at a later time.

Driving Policies

Our general rule for driving is that players are required to be driven by a parent or guardian. We do realize that this may not always be possible and communication with the club director is required for exceptions to this rule. Players younger than 17, must be driven to all tournaments, regardless of location. This ensures the safety of our athletes after competing at a high intensity for hours.


Communication Guidelines

Club Director/Administration to/from Players & Parents

The primary mode of communication between the club director and the parents and players will be by email or announcements posted to our website.  The secondary mode of communication is by a phone call or in person.   

After those modes fail, then last mode of communication will be by written correspondence sent via US mail.   These lines of communication will be used for important notices to policy, changes in gym schedule, traveling information updates, billing invoices and grievances.    

Notify your club director and team coaches if your email address or contact information changes.  Most pertinent team information will be routed through the coach and dispersed to your team.  During the season, the club director may call various meetings to inform parents and players of important events or details pertaining to the entire club.   

Coach to Player/Player to Coach

We encourage our athletes to take responsibility for their participation. Both the player and coach are responsible for the establishment of a relationship to be based on trust and mutual respect. Coaches are expected to be effective and empathetic communicators. Most often concerns that arise are issues surrounding playing time. We expect a player to talk to the coach first when there is a concern regarding playing time or it is unclear about what the coach expects either in practice or in competition. All of the coaches strive to be approachable. Open communication between the coach and player is top priority. The athlete can ask the coach what is needed to improve or to receive more opportunities to play in matches, and what can be done to benefit the team more.  Parents can be most helpful by helping their athlete set tangible goals to achieve more opportunities.

Parent to Coach

It is our expectation that a parent and/or player choose Rock Volleyball Club for the quality coaching that is provided.  Do not approach a coach during the tournament with issues about substitution patterns, playing time, or other similar issues concerning the team or a specific player during a tournament!  It is our expectation that issues regarding playing time or roles should not be a factor on the court and will not be addressed or resolved at a tournament.  Coaches will be more than happy to discuss those issues after the tournament has concluded.      

The club director will not tolerate aggravated or aggressive parent behavior toward any of our coaches, other club coaches, parents, and/or referees.  If a parent or parents exhibit this type of behavior, they will be appropriately sanctioned, which may include being asked not to attend tournaments in the future or even dismissal from the Club.

Player to Player

It is our expectation that if a personality conflict arises between players on a team, this conflict gets resolved outside of court time as to not affect the chemistry of the team.  If the conflict is irreconcilable then the expectation is that the parties involved do not aggravate the conflict further by involving other players and their parents by spreading gossip or rumors, whereby a clique is formed.  The club director and coaches will not tolerate gossip or rumors that are detrimental to the team.  All involved will be appropriately sanctioned, which may include temporary suspension or even dismissal from the Club.    

Lines of Communication

These are the communication steps that we would like our players to follow if an issue arises:

· If the issue is between players; then the players involved should try to resolve first.

· If the issue is remains unresolved or involves a coach‐to‐player, then the player should address their concern with their respective coach first.

· If the issue remains unresolved, then the player and parents should make an appointment to speak with the coach.  Any such meeting should be made outside of tournament and practice times.   

· If the issue remains unresolved, then the player, parents and coaches should schedule a meeting with the club director.      

Coaches Code of Conduct

· I will place the emotional and physical well‐being of my players ahead of a personal desire to win.

· I will treat each player as an individual, remembering the large range of emotional and physical development for the same age group.

· I will be knowledgeable in the rules of volleyball, and I will teach these rules to my players.

· I will use coaching techniques appropriate for all of the skills that I teach.

· I will treat players fairly and will not show favoritism towards one player.

· I will do my best to make sure practices, official team travel, and competitions are properly supervised. · I will work individually to develop the skills of every member of the team

· I will be professional at all times, approachable and develop an open and respectful communication with my players and players’ parents.

· I will review and practice basic first aid principles needed to treat injuries of my players.

· I will do my best to organize practices that are challenging and meaningful for all of my players.

· I will lead by example in demonstrating fair play and sportsmanship to all my players, as well as to spectators and parents.

· I will provide a sports environment for my team that is free of drugs, tobacco, and alcohol, and I will refrain from their use at all sports events.

· I will not invite players to tryout or join my team or club once they have committed to or competed with another club for the current season, which is defined as the period from December 1st until the conclusion of the players’ teams’ competition. I will inform players and their parents/guardians of this policy and ask them to abide by it.

· I will remember that I am a youth sports coach, and that the game is for the youths and not the adults.

· I will not solicit to players or parents any goods or services for personal profit unless prior approval has been granted by the club director.

Player’s Code of Conduct

It is expected that each player will always conduct themselves in a manner that brings credit to and respect for themselves, their families, coaches, teammates and to ROCK VOLLEYBALL CLUB.

General Rules

Attendance: Players are expected to attend practices, tournaments, and meetings and complete them in their entirety as scheduled. See rules of practice for policy on absences.       

Practices: You are expected to notify your coach at least four hours in advance, if you will miss practice, or arrive late to practice or a tournament. A message from a teammate immediately prior to practice or competition is unacceptable. Unexcused absences or late arrivals are causes for disciplinary action.

Unacceptable Behavior: Any incident involving the use of illegal drugs, tobacco, alcohol, firearms or violation or curfew may result in immediate expulsion from the club. We have zero tolerance for this issue; any player that is dismissed will receive a refund after a replacement player is found.

Dress/Behavior: At all times, players are expected to act and dress appropriately, keeping in mind that they are representing ROCK VOLLEYBALL CLUB and the Puget Sound region.

Injury/Illness: Players must report injuries or illness immediately to the coach. In the case of an emergency that requires the coach to leave the practice area, players are to cease all activities until the coach returns.

Readiness: Be mentally prepared for each practice and tournament by identifying what you will gain from the upcoming experience. All taping must be done prior to the start of practice or competition. We suggest that your purchase ankle braces if you have a history of ankle sprains. The player must provide her own tape and pre‐ wrap. Jewelry should not be worn at practices or tournaments.

Equipment: Players are responsible for equipment assigned to them until they are relinquished of this responsibility. The player will be financially responsible for its repair or replacement, if loss or any damage is due to the player’s negligence.

Communication: Our goal in this area is to be direct and supportive, and to realize how the application of constructive criticism and good listening skills help us achieve our goals. Please refrain from giving any unsolicited coaching tips to teammates; this is the job and responsibility of the coaches.

Social Media: Players must refrain from posting or communicating negative remarks about other players, coaches, parents or the club via cell phones, or internet (i.e. Facebook, My Space, Twitter, etc.)


Players whose actions violate the rules and regulations included in this handbook shall be subject to disciplinary actions that may include probation, suspension or expulsion from ROCK VOLLEYBALL CLUB.

Probation will allow the player to practice but not to participate in tournaments. When a player is put on probation, the coach or club director will let the player know what the infraction was, the length of the probation, and the manner that the problem can be corrected at the time of the discipline. After completion of the probationary period, if the deficiency is corrected, the player will be afforded all team privileges. If it not corrected, the probationary period may be extended or the player suspended.

Suspension shall mean exclusion from participation for a specified number of days during which the player may not participate in any team‐related activity.  Players who are suspended at a tournament must leave the tournament area.  If the suspension is handed out at a travel tournament, the parents will be immediately notified and the player will be sent home with their parents.  The coach or club director will set up an appointment with the parents and player upon returning from the tournament to discuss disciplinary actions.  

Expulsion means complete denial of any right to participate in any club activities for an indefinite period of time and the Puget Sound region will be informed and the athlete placed on the “not in good standing” list.

The handbook is a guide. Any behavior found unbecoming to the team may be dealt with at the discretion of the Director on an individual basis.


Parent’s Code of Ethics

I hereby pledge to provide positive support care, and encouragement for my daughter’s participating in volleyball by following this code of ethics:

 · I will encourage good sportsmanship by demonstrating positive support for all players, coaches and officials at every practice or tournament.

· I will place the emotional and physical well‐being of my own daughter ahead of my personal desire to win.

· I will not judge my daughter or the teams’ success just in terms of winning. I understand that even in defeat, the team has learned another aspect of the game, and has expanded their base of experiences.

· I will require my daughters’ coach to be trained in the responsibilities of being a youth sports coach and that the coach upholds the coach’s code of conduct.

· I will support coaches and officials working with my daughter, in order to encourage a positive and enjoyable experience for all.

· I will demand a sports environment for my daughter that is free from drugs, tobacco, and alcohol and will refrain from their use at all sports events.

· I will remember that the game is for the players, not for the adults.

· I will do my very best to make youth sports fun for my daughter. I understand that the verbal and physical attack made against a coach will result in my daughter being immediately dismissed from the club without a refund. I will ask my daughter to treat other players, coaches, fans, and officials with respect regardless of race, sex, creed or ability.

· I will respect my daughters’ time with their coaches, and will wait until the team is released before I interact with her.

· I will help my daughter enjoy the volleyball experience by doing whatever I can, such as being a respectful fan, volunteering when needed, or providing transportation.

· I understand that my own poor sportsmanship or bad behavior toward the coaches, club director or other players may lead to the suspension or expulsions of my daughter from the club.
