2024 Ducks Teams

2024 - for invited athletes only

Updated: October 4, 2023

Congratulations, if you are receiving this, you have been identified as an athlete the Ducks Volleyball Club would like to extend the early signing opportunity to. The Ducks will use the Early Signing Period (September 15th, 2023 – November 1, 2023) to early sign 15U-18U athletes who were a part of our club in 2023 (Visit VBC Handbook for more information). Please take a moment to review this important information:

Early Signing OFFER – IMPORTANT INFORMATION

  • An athlete that accepts an early signing position during the Early Signing Period will be guaranteed a spot on a Ducks team for 2024.  
  • An early signed athlete is not guaranteed a specific team (when more than one team is available), a starting position, or specific amount of playing time. When more than one team is offered, early signed athletes must attend team placement sessions/tryouts in order to be identified to specific team. In some situations, the Ducks Executive reserves the right to specify a team for an athlete.
  • The Ducks will not early sign every athlete from the 2023 season. The Ducks will look to early sign up to 50% of our athletes (based on the number of teams being run), from the previous season in each age group, and will be at the sole discretion of the Ducks Executive. 
  • All invited athletes are required to complete the form below, verifying acceptance or declining of the position. Athletes accepting are required to upload their signed form from Volleyball BC to officially accept an offered spot. Athletes that have confirmed their spot may not tryout for other clubs.
  • The Ducks may rescind offers after 36 hours of sending the offer at the discretion of the Ducks Executive if a response has not been given by the athlete.
  • Athletes will be asked for a non-refundable deposit when accepting a spot on a team for 2024. We are currently building our budget and with many unknowns it is challenging. We will finalize details shortly. The costs for the 2024 season are difficult to estimate due to the increased costs in facilities, increased cost of and number of tournaments, insurance, and equipment.
