DaKine Indoor Tryouts are Coming!

The 2018/19 season is promising to be an incredible indoor season. We are excited for you and your family to become a part of our Volleyball Ohana!

We are excited to make the 2018/19 indoor season even better than last year. We will be offering teams in the U12/U13/U14/U15/U16/U17 and U18 divisions based out of our University Place location at the DaKine Sports Center and we are finalizing plans on our north end teams that will be based out of Bellevue.

Our DaKine players will be ready to step right on the sand after an incredible indoor season!  We will be giving priority selection to all our DaKine indoor team Ohana for our DaKine Beach club teams for 2019!  

Tryouts for our National/Open teams for U12/U13 and U14 will take place on Saturday, October 27th. Tryouts for our Tiki Teams will take place on Sunday, October 28th!

Why DaKine Volleyball Club?

Cross training in the sand! There is a reason Russell Wilson brings his receiving core to Hermosa Beach every spring. Sand is arguably the best surface to train in for strength, quickness and agility in ANY sport. Our players will be doing cross training with strength and conditioning workouts in the sand to increase explosiveness and fitness.

Dakine is very particular about who coaches our kids. Our coaches have previously coached and played at a very high level.  We believe in low player to coach ratios, and always strive to over-deliver!

Not only do have our own indoor hard courts we also have indoor AND outdoor BEACH courts! We are not at the mercy of basketball or any other high school events or sports. Our practice times are set for the entire season and will not change. In addition many of our teams will take advantage of extra practice times both on the hard courts and the beach courts.

We will be offering a National Team and a Regional Team in each age division. In some age divisions we may see that we have the ability to field 2 National Teams. We have great flexibility and will be able to offer the teams that make the most sense for our club members.

More Info About DaKine

About DaKine2019-09-16T19:47:18+00:00

DaKine Mission Statement2019-09-16T19:47:53+00:00

“To provide superlative coaching and foster the best possible learning environment indoors, on the beach, or grass. To teach our family of athletes the fundamentals of the game of volleyball, and cultivate the desire in each to compete at the highest level.  We want our athletes to develop the work ethic and discipline it takes to be an elite athlete, along with the importance of sportsmanship. We want to create complete athletes on the court, and even better people off the court.” Aloha

Practice Times2019-09-16T19:53:09+00:00

Practice times will vary by team. At our DaKine, University Place Location, we have two practice times slots that will be used – 4:30pm-7pm and 7pm-9:30pm. Some teams will practice on Tuesdays and Thursdays and some teams will practice on Monday’s & Wednesdays. Practice times can be found on the team page for each indoor team.

Our Bellevue locations will practice at Jewish Day School on Mondays & Thursdays from 5:30pm-7:30pm and at Salvation Army from 5pm-7pm and 7pm-9pm.

Unlike other clubs our practice times are not at the mercy of High School Schedules. Practice times may vary due to competition schedules and other competitive goals but the overall schedule will be set at the beginning of the season.

Tournament Schedule2019-09-16T19:54:17+00:00

National Teams will compete in a selection of National Qualifier tournaments and some National level tournaments. The Travel Tournament schedule is currently being finalized. The Schedule that will be finalized when tournament entry opens but the tentative schedule right now is Matt Hartner Memorial (Eugene), Triple Crown (Salt Lake City), Pacific NW Qualifier (Spokane), Lone Star Qualifier (Dallas), West Coast Cup (Long Beach) and Nationals.

All National (Travel) Teams will participate in the Puget Sound Power League, Regionals and the Puget Sound Bid Tournament. All Teams that qualify for Nationals through our local bid tournament or in another Qualifying tournament will compete at USA Nationals.

Last season 3 of our teams achieved a bid in the Puget Sound Region and had a great time at Nationals!

Regional team tournaments will be local, within the state, and no more than 3 hours driving time from Seattle. Regional Teams will participate in the Puget Sound Power League and a selected number of tournaments in the Puget Sound Region. They will attend one tournament out of town in a tournament that is driving distance.

“Coaches Coaching Their Own Children” Policy2019-09-14T19:31:00+00:00

Many clubs have parents coaching teams, including their own children. After speaking extensively with many club directors and college coaches across the country we have made the decision that it is in the club’s best interest that parents DO NOT coach their own children on club volleyball teams. While this is different from what we have done in the past we have made the change to reflect what is happening in club volleyball across the country. We will continue to have coaches who have children who play in our club they will not be coaching their children’s team.

Playing Time2019-09-16T19:54:59+00:00

As with all elite, competitive teams equal playing time across the board is not guaranteed at DaKine. However, we do make every effort to ensure that each player has the opportunity to put their skills to the test in competition. All teams will make every effort to carry 12 players on their roster.  If there are enough players to carry two National Travel Teams we will carry two National Teams with our club.

Our regional teams will carry 12 players on the roster. Again, while equal playing time is not guaranteed we do make every effort to ensure each player contributes to their team at all levels.

Club Costs and Payment Schedule2017-09-23T16:03:17+00:00

DaKine season tuition costs will cover the coaches’ pay, facility fees and equipment, uniforms, tournament fees, and administration costs.

Parents and players will be responsible for their own travel expenses to and from tournaments.

Once a player and her parents (or financially responsible party) have decided to play for DaKine, they will be required to either;

  1. make a lump sum payment for the entire tuition cost or with a 3% discount.
  2. make an initial deposit and then six (6) equal monthly fixed payments for the remainder of the tuition.
DaKine Club’s Competitive Goals2019-09-16T19:55:42+00:00

DaKine Volleyball Club strives to provide our athletes the skills to compete at the highest level. With National Travel, Regional and Development teams our goal is to allow each player the opportunity to compete at a level that is appropriate for them. Our coaches are always working to improve the skills of each individual player and to bring each team together to be the absolute best possible team unit that they can be.

Coaching Credentials and Philosophies2019-09-16T19:57:29+00:00

DaKine coaches believe in a culture of “playing for one another” and our focus is on developing fully rounded athletes and people. Our goal is not only to provide our DaKine athletes the skills to compete indoor and on the beach but also to help develop skills that will help our players become successful in other endeavors in their lives.
