We are fortuntate to have our own training and competitition facilities. The Lair Courts in Renton, and opening in December, the Auburn Fieldhouse. We know where and when our teams will be practicing for the entire season, and we host many of the power league dates and tournaments that our teams compete in. For complete information on each of our facilities, please click on the links below.
Kraken will host a couple of open houses leading up to our club team tryotus. All age group families are welcome to attend and check out our club. We will have many of our coaches in attendance, with a focus on the younger age group teams at the first open house. We will also have free open gym during this time for the athletes to get some play in.
Our teams will practice twice weekly at The Lair Courts. Days and times of practices will be set before tryouts. We plan to have 3 boys teams, 1 each in U18, U16 and U14. We are excited to get started with the boys teams and build a great boys arm of our club. Practices for all boys teams will begin the week of December 3rd.

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
