What is Club Moscow Volleyball?

Who operates Club Moscow Volleyball?

Club Moscow Volleyball is operated by a Club Director, an Executive Board, and volunteer parents who serve on the board.

The Board’s duties include working with the club director to establish an operating budget, schedule tournaments, run all the operational aspects of the club and host the Club Moscow Spring Classic tournament (held mid-March every year)

The Director and Coaching Director are responsible for hiring Coaches, scheduling practices, team selection, the club web site, working with the board to manage the club's budget and operations, overseeing player and coach development, overseeing club board meetings and acting as tournament director during CMV's local tournament.
Who is eligible to play for Club Moscow?

Young women ages 10 to 18 from around the region and boys up to age 14.


Who coaches Club Moscow Volleyball?

Volleyball coaches from Moscow School District, students from the University of Idaho and WSU, other coaches from the area, and parents have coached in the past.
Each CMV coach is certified as an IMPACT coach, which is the official training program of USA Volleyball and goes through an extensive background check. Each coach also has a strong background in volleyball fundamentals and player development.
Where and when are practices held?

Practices are held in local gyms in and around Moscow in the late afternoon or evenings.  There is limited gym availability in town and CMV competes for gym time with many other local sports.  Every consideration is given to coaches' and players' schedules.  CMV tries to have teams practice at least twice a week, and the times may vary.

What type of tournaments does CMV participate in?

Tournaments for the U12s and U14s are usually held on Saturdays, while tournaments for U16s and U18s are on Sundays, with some exceptions.

Tournaments usually begin at 8:00am and last until 4-6:00 pm. A team plays three matches in pool play, then, depending on how they did in pool play, enters either a consolation or championship bracket in single elimination play.
The majority of tournaments are held in the Spokane/North Idaho region. The regional championships are a two-day event usually held in the Tri-Cities or Spokane.  More information on tournaments is on the Club Handbook page.
