Club History - In fall of 2012 Foothills Volleyball started a select club offering volleyball on the plateau. We saw a need for competitive girls volleyball and still today we continue to grow as one of the best clubs at developing players in the Puget Sound Region Volleyball League.

General Season Information - The Puget Sound Region Volleyball Association (PSRVB), that we participate in through our USAVB Membership, is taking an optimistic approach to planning for the 2020/21 season January - April. They are moving ahead with plans in anticipation that the Pandemic will improve the chances of facility usage for Club Sports. Currently most all counties and school districts have club sports listed as not allowed in their facilities. If this continues, even if our counties move to Phase 3 allowing a 50 person activity, there are concerns about school facility usage. This puts most all Clubs in jeopardy of operating normally this season.
Foothills Select Facility Advantage - Since Foothills has an indoor volleyball court training facility secured in Buckley for practices, our Club WILL be operating for the 2020/21 season. We will be forming to be prepared if the PRSVB Power League is allowed and for other opportunities. Foothills teams will practice in compliance with Pierce County pandemic restrictions and will be traveling to tournaments in areas where youth sports is allowed if necessary.
Incumbent Offerings - If you were a 2019/2020 Foothills players and would like to be considered a return Incumbent Player for the new season, you must let the Program Director know. We will consider all factors form last season by discussing players skills, knowledge, sportsmanship, and attitude before making team offers. We hope to bring back all players if possible. Offers by rule are Nov. 2nd - 12th.
