FOCUS IS LOOKING FOR COACHES. We provide certification fee coverage and an honorarium. We are always looking for coaches for: 13u to 18u boys and girls teams. Please contact our director at: firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested in coaching.
Did you know here at Focus the summer grass season($150-$200 value) is included in your fee. It also includes things like Tournament fees for at least three to four regular season events, up to including provincials, coaching certification fees, coach's honorarium & the year end celebration event.
For comparison purposes please note, clubs add some of the fees later, after the initial team fee, similar to us as we do with teams choosing to go to Nationals, those costs are to be covered by the team going.
We operate more boys' teams than most other clubs. We feel having multiple teams, at more levels ensures more athletes are playing and our senior teams have a strong base build from.

INDOOR CLUB SEASON NOTES:
Our club is based out of the Burnaby-Tri-Cities area, but we accept athletes from anywhere in the Greater Vancouver Area. Where we have more than one team at an age level we divide the teams by skill level (i.e. A and B teams).
The indoor club season generally runs from early December to the end of May. (We start practicing in January).
Teams generally have 2 practices a week and attend 4 or more tournaments/events during the season. These tournaments take place on the weekend.
Coaches have demonstrated passion for the game of volleyball and working with young athletes. All of our coaches are expected to be certified through the National Coaches Certification Program.
