Curtis High School Added as a Member School

Today, the association welcomed Curtis High School to the volleyball club family. This the third school to officially form a club to compete in the upcoming fall season. Credit goes to the students at Curtis High School, who also are a part of the USAV South Sound Volleyball Club, especially Johnathan Carson and his father Rusty Carson. Rick Todd former varsity volleyball coach and avid volleyball supporter, also helped along the initiative.

Now the association will look to the Summer Tournament open to all who want to play this July 25th at Heritage Park. Also a big portion of its time will be to develop the Western Washington Qualifier Tournament and then the subsequent playoffs.

1st Official Season

Auburn, WA – Today during the bi-annual board of directors meeting Ballard High School was admitted as the second member school.    Mark Prescott, a math teacher at Ballard High School, and Liam Moser, a senior, are credited for putting the club together.  On the heels of the admittance of the second volleyball club, the association announced its first season to start in 2015, featuring a seeding tournament in October and the Association’s Championship Tournament in November.  Brian Boyer, the Commissioner said that other schools could possibly be admitted at the May Board Meeting, but did not give specific details on prospective schools.  Also as part of the meeting Mr. Prescott was named to the third board seat.

Washington High School becomes 1st Member School

Working hard on day 1.
Working hard on day 1.

Mark May 6th on your calendar as a break through in the pursuit to give further opportunities for students to play interscholastic sports. Yesterday in Parkland, WA at Washington High School just outside Mchord Air Force base in Tacoma, WA six students practiced as a team in the hopes to represent its school and community in interscholastic sport. The practice was Led by volleyball enthusiast Konstatin Stakhovich who is of Russian-Ukrainian heritage and currently a Math teacher at Washington High School. Coach K was very pleased to introduce this sport to his former school and is excited about the opportunities this will provide for the students in and around Parkland, WA. If you would like more information about the team click on the sign up button and a WSHSBVA rep would love to help you form the next team at your high school.

After practice it was made official that Washington High School would become the first member school.   Konstatin was then appointed as the 1st official Board Member of the Association.  As the charter school he will also assume all the duties as Chairman of the Board, but obviously will be helped by the Commissioner of the WSHSBVA.     “Now it is real, there are no more what ifs left, we have students who want to play volleyball.”  said the commissioner Brian Boyer.   “Now we have two questions, Will someone join them, and will the volleyball community support them?  I’m more concerned with the first than the second.”     He would later say that it was 50-50 if there would be a fall season next year. “We have other schools who are real close, but they have hurdles to overcome, there is definitely student interest, I’m curious to see if this will push a team over the edge, get them over the hump, but we will see.”   Coach K says they are in it for the long haul and at least the tournaments provided by USAV and the Association should be enough to keep the kids engaged.
