NCVA Updates January 2021

We hope everyone had a wonderful Holiday Season.

With the new year upon us, we reflect on previous seasons; the Boys' division gearing up to #GetThatBid at the NCVA Boys Far Western Bid Tournament, and the Girls' division warming up to play in the California Kickoff. Although there is still uncertainty of how this season will look, please know that NCVA is here for you and ready to hit the road to set up a tournament as soon as the State of CA gives the OK.
Together we will see through this, with patience, understanding, and kindness.


January 2021

The  following events are postponed with new dates TBD:

  • California Kickoff & Kickstart
  • President's Day
  • Sierra National Qualifier


Previous Updates 2020

NCVA 18's Power League and Sierra National Qualifier Update

The 18's PL and SNQ will be postponed


2021 CA Kickoff is officially postponed, new dates TBD. 

The convention centers in the Bay Area have reached out to NCVA to reschedule the event due to COVID-19 restrictions on the facilities. 


Covid-19 Mandatory Daily Screening Form Procedures

All coaches and players will be required to complete the Covid-19 Mandatory Daily Screening Form prior to entering into FSVBC practices and/or contests.  Please click the link below to submit your daily screening form.  Players can complete the form from their cell phones and show the completed form receipt to their coach.  No form receipt means no practice entry.


November 30th, 2020 Covid 19 Update

As we all know, Sacramento County remains at the Purple Tier for Covid 19 cases thus restricting indoor athletic activities.  The county regulations clearly state that the only athletic activities that may occur are outdoor training sessions.  To confirm this information, a member of the Five Starz VB board called both the Sacramento and Placer County Health Departments.  When we asked if there was any activity the club could conduct indoors (individual or small groups, for example), the answer was an unequivocal NO!

Many of you may be hearing that several Sacramento area clubs will be resuming practices again on Monday, November 30.  It is somewhat baffling how they are able to do this as they are under the same restrictions.  One explanation is that the guidelines have no teeth regarding enforcement.

The Five Starz Board chooses to follow the guidelines, putting the health of our players, families, and the community ahead of volleyball practice.  When Sacramento County returns to the Red Tier, we will once again return to indoor practice while following the suggested protocol.  

 It is sometimes very difficult  to make the right decision particularly with competitive people.  We truly feel that it is irresponsible to ignore the guidelines when Covid cases are increasing all across the country.   Thanks for hanging in there with us.



NCVA Membership Update

Memberships Update:
We've received a lot of emails on new memberships, even though this was included on the last update, we wanted to re-publish some helpful tips.

  • You must have a SportsEngine Account before you get a membership. Click here to learn more!
  • Once you have a SportsEngine Account, click here to purchase a membership (memberships are available for purchase starting at 9:00 AM September 1st).
  • Looking to affiliate your player to a new club? The new SportsEngine system changes the way we handle club affiliations. Clubs must now invite your athlete to their club, parents can no longer make this change. 
  • Feeling unsure about the club season? To help, we have created a Sept-Dec youth reduced rate membership for just $25.00! This will cover your athlete in any NCVA sanctioned, non-competition activity. It's worth noting that, like all of our region memberships, this membership is not upgradable or refundable. Adults that are affiliated with youth (coaches), which require a background screen, SafeSport, and Impact training, will still have to purchase a full season membership due to the safety requirements.
  • Current memberships expire on Oct 31, 2020, and we strongly recommend that if you have a current membership, that you wait till that membership expires. There is no need to renew earlier than that date.

Five Starz Players & Parents

We wanted to post a brief update as to where the club hopes to be this 2020-21 club season.  First we would definitely like to field at least 3 teams this season with the following lineup of  head coaches:

18-Jason Balmes

17-Todd Rhoads

16-Dana Anglin

If allowed, based on current Covid-19 guidelines, we will host clinics for all of these age groups starting in September.  These clinics will most likely be outdoors on grass.  Additionally, we are currently working on securing indoor facility use in Sacramento for workouts.  As you all know, it is almost impossible to tell you with any certainty what is going to happen this club season, but we are committed to having a season if it is safe to do so and current restrictions are lifted.

We appreciate your support and patience as we navigate through the next few weeks.  As always, if you have any questions then please reach out to us.  


Five Starz Volleyball Club






We are so proud to announce that our 17-Dana & 15-DEBBY teams earned bids to Junior Nationals in Dallas, Texas this year.   Congratulations ladies for reaching your goal this season and for your resiliency in dealing with the heartbreaking consequence of not attending Junior Nationals due to COVID-19 epidemic.

Five Starz Response to Coronavirus disease (COVID-19), NCVA

We hope that everyone is staying healthy during these unprecedented times. As you may be aware, the Northern California Volleyball Association (NCVA) has decided to cancel the remainder of the girl’s club volleyball season. We know that many were looking forward to getting back out on the courts as soon as possible, however it is in the best interest of everyone’s safety to cancel currently. 

Our Five Starz club director has a meeting scheduled for April 15th with the NCVA which should give us some indication of any refund that the NCVA may be allowing for the season. Please have patience with us as we determine if a refund will be forthcoming to your families. 

We will update families as soon as we receive any additional information. 

We want to thank you for your patience, understanding, and support during this unprecedented time in our nation and community. We look forward to a happy and healthy 2020-2021 season and hope to see all of you back in the gym.

Five Starz Response to Coronavirus disease (COVID-19)

As a direct result of the recent developments to COVID-19, Five Starz Volleyball Club (FSVC) has made the difficult, yet necessary choice, to suspend our season until further notice.

The Northern California Volleyball Association (NCVA) has requested all teams to stop practices through March 22 and has postponed all league events through March 28. Additionally, each of our practice sites have closed temporarily as well. The NCVA has not made any official statement regarding cancelling the Far Westerns Invitational (scheduled for the end of April), or the remainder of the indoor season.

Dues/ Payments – For all FSVC families who pay through our ‘dues plan’, your regular payment for March 15 is due, and will be collected as usual. Please note, FSVC’s dues plan is set up to charge in arrears and cover expenses such as coaches pay checks, and court rental fees for the previous 30 days. Should the season not resume, April and May dues will NOT BE COLLECTED, and those families who pre-paid their season dues in advance, would be entitled to partial refunds.

We will update families as soon as we receive any additional information. Please feel free to look for updates on FSVC’s website (  

We want to thank you for your patience, understanding, and support during this unprecedented time in our nation and community. We look forward to getting back out on the volleyball court as soon as practicable.

Proud of these girls...we had a target on our back because we entered this tourney the #1 seed.  Thankfully we did enough to stay in the GOLD division and finished at a respectable seed 4.  WORK, WORK, WORK, WORK TO BE DONE, DONE, DONE, DONE!

Amazing weekend of volleyball for the 17-Dana team at the Power League Regional Qualifier in Sacramento.  The girls started at Seed 5 and finished at Seed1.  An unfortunate loss in their second pool of play dropped them to Seed 17, but this loss actually ended up being a blessing because it placed them in the final pool with Seeds 1, 15, & 17, thus allowing them to challenge NorCal 17-1 Black for the #1 spot!  Thankfully ours girls rose to the occasion and brought some pretty great defense to the court.  Our blocking was the best we've seen all season and our back row came up with some amazing digs.  Our offense was on point and some tough and well placed serving helped seal the victory.  We coaches are super proud of the heart, tenacity, and elevation our girls brought to the floor.  Great job, ladies!  WE LOVE YOU!!!

16-Todd went 4 and 2 at the Regional Qualifier this past weekend in Clovis, however lost the key match in 3 sets to City Beach 16 Black on day 1. The team climbed back to 56th with a 3 and 1 performance on day 2 winning the 2nd pool handily. Standouts for the tournament were Breanna Davis with 48 digs and 52 assists, Malia DeCelle with 28 kills, 11 aces and 37 digs, and Zoe Hopkins with 12 Blocks, 21 Kills and a .426 hitting percentage. Next up is the Showcase in Las Vegas!

WHERE OUR 18s PLAYERS WILL BE IN 2020...Back Row: Tiya Kamba-Griffin, Megan Trottier, Bailey Palestini, Anaya Rodriquez, Mia Gladding, Alona Walker, Trinity Barr; Front Row: Brooke Ono, Sydney Durana, Angel Gamboa, Caty Cordano
