THIS IS THE INFORMATION FOR RIPCURL & WAVE SCHOOL TEAMS

We are entering our 7th season of providing quality volleyball education and competition opportunities for the youth of the Greater Seattle area. In March 2018 we opened The Lair Courts, our 6 court volleyball/basketball training and competition center in Renton. The Lair affords us opportunities to grow our training offerings with more camps, clinics and club teams.

We are excited to announce our Ripcurl & Wave School teams program. This program offers a club volleyball team experience at a reduced cost and with less time commitment for teams where the athletes are all from one high school. The Ripcurl & Wave teams practice twice weekly for 1.5 hours and compete in 1+ tournaments per month January through April, and all will be based out of our Renton, Lair Courts location. Ripcurl & Wave teams compete in tournaments within the Greater Puget Sound area, some of which are located at our own facility. 


Kraken's Gyms

We are fortuntate to have our own training and competitition facilities. The Lair Courts in Renton, and opening in January, 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.

Fundraising

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
