Girls Lagoon & Ocean Teams
This season we are introducing a lower time commitment and reduced cost local club teams program. Our Lagoon & Ocean teams still have 1.5 hour practices / training twice weekly, but compete in 1 local tournment per month January thru April. The program is great for those families who want a club experience for their athlete, but can't commit to a regular club season schedule and cost. We will fill up to 2 teams in the U14, U16 & U18 girls age groups. For complete information on the Lagoon / Ocean teams program, click the button below.

Kraken VC makes every effort to keep the costs of our programs low through various fundraising efforts. Club Fundraisers help offset our operating costs, and we expect participation from all of our families. We have many individual fundraisers offered with results applied directly to athlete accounts. These funds can be used towards monthly dues, travel expenses and Krakan Gear. Kraken does not offer financial aid or scholarships, but we do offer many individual fundraising programs that help offset the costs of club. It is up to the athlete and family on the individual participation level of these fundraising programs. We have had several athletes pay their entire season tuition and travel costs with these programs.
Examples of Club and Individual Fundraisers are:
- Kraken serve-a-thon & pass-a-thon
- Brown Bear Car Wash Ticket Sales
- Krispy Kreme Donut Sales
- Kraken VC Apparel Fundraiser
- Cookie Dough Fundraiser
- Hosted adult & junior volleyball tournaments
- Facilities shifts during hosted tournaments
