What additional costs may be incurred?
The participation fees listed in your budget cover the expenses associated with play and participation. The majority of these expenses are liability insurance, coaching stipend, gym rentals, equipment, Carolina Region Team Registration, Tournament Entry Fees, and administrative fees. Fees received go directly for the operations, instruction and play. The amount of additional costs will depend on number and locations of away tournaments each team participates in. Travel expenses are not covered- hotels, travel, food, etc. Uniform Fees are an extra expense.
What if a Club activity conflicts with a school activity?
We feel that school activities come first. However, a player who attends a practice will get much more out of the practice than one that does not come to the practice at all, and will be rewarded as such. The higher the level of play an athlete wishes to achieve is directly related to the dedication, effort and commitment the athlete makes to the program. The National & Elite teams will look for a higher level of commitment and dedication.
What is Biltmore Volleyball Academy?
BVA is a nonprofit organization 501©(3) that was started in 1995 to promote and enhance volleyball in Western North Carolina by providing a safe and enjoyable atmosphere for all ages and levels to develop. BVA is the premier club in WNC offering the highest level of coaching in the area. To maintain this reputation we will need continued hard work and innovation from athletes, coaches, parents and friends of the program. Athletes are expected to be committed to their team.
