Note: We have completed the 1st assessment session but players are still welcome to sign up and attend the 2nd session on Sat Nov 25. Please register online here prior to coming to the session.
Online registration will close on Fri Nov 24 @ 6pm so we can prepare the check-in lists.
Registration will be accepted at door on Sat Nov 25, $25 cash or cheque only. Please arrive 20 min early to complete the registration.
All interested 12U (born 2006) and 13U (born 2005) girls are invited to take part in this assessment.
The assessment evaluation will stream athletes into one of the 12/13U development programs:
- Black Stream - for athletes who are ready to move into the next level of development including using the regular weight ball and introduction to concepts of 6 X 6 play. These athletes will train twice a week with a 3rd practice session added after Spring Break. They will attend local tournaments including the Lower Mainland Championships and Provincial Championships for their age group. Due to coaching and gym availability, we are limited to selecting up to 24 players for this program. Athletes should take part in the assessment to be considered for the Black Stream.
- Red & White Steam - provides a continued development program for intermediate and novice level athletes who are not yet ready or cannot make the training commitment for Black Stream. This program includes the option to train once or twice a week and may include optional Play Days with other Volleyball Clubs in the Lower Mainland. Athletes are NOT required to attend the assessment to participate in either of these streams.
NOTE: The assessments will be run similar to the tryout format used at the older ages so even if you are not interested in participating in the Black Stream, we encourage all athletes to attend as it is an opportunity to get some 'practice' at tryouts. You will also get some additional volleyball training for a nominal fee.
Full details for the Black Steam program (practice days, program expectations, registration fees, etc.) is available here.
More information about the BCO Youth Development Programs (grades 4-7) is available here.
Registration for Red and White Streams will be available in early December.
**Important** If this is the first time you have registered for a BCO program, please create a free Registration Account to enable registration and payment.
*Parent Meeting - Please meet in the bleachers in the Mountainside gym. We will be discussing BCO Club Philosophy and the steps following the assessment sessions.
Athletes should try to attend both sessions as this provides the Evaluators more opportunities to assess the athlete's skill level, however, it is not mandatory to attend both sessions. If you have a conflict, please note this in your registration. We will let the Evaluators know to complete your assessment on the day you can attend.

BCO POLICY REGARDING PLAYING UP
All athletes trying out for BCO will register for the tryout session for their age group. Under aged players may submit a request to tryout for an older age category, however they will be accepted only by invitation of the Technical Development Committee. These players will still be expected to register and attend their own age tryout in addition to the older age group sessions.
