At the first practice, each player must bring the following:
1) Check for $275;
2) Northern Lights Release of Liability;
3) Medical Release Form;
4) Clean shoes (please wear other shoes in and out of the building);
6) Water bottle;
If your daughter was not at tryouts and did not hand in the NVC release of liability, she will not be allowed to practice without turning in the form on the first day of practice.
Each player must also sign the Northfield Schools release electronically, which can be found here.
Masks must be worn into the building and worn until practice starts.
Our tentative practice schedule for those placed on a fall 2021 team:
September: 1, 7, 10.
Thereafter, the plan is to practice Mondays and Fridays to allow our coaches (and players!) to attend high school games, which are generally held on Tuesdays and Thursdays.
Game dates at Midwest Volleyball Warehouse: 9/11, 9/18, 9/25 or 9/26, 10/2, 10/9, 10/16.
Fall tryouts will take place on Thursday August 19th at the Northfield Middle School gymnasium from 6-7:30pm.
We hope to field 2 - 3 teams at two age levels, depending on numbers:
12's (5th & 6th grade)
14's (7th & 8th grade)
Teams will practice twice per week starting the first week of school. Games take place on Saturdays at the Midwest Volleyball Warehouse in Burnsville. MVW has not yet posted the fall 2021 information, but games have been scheduled back to back and start anywhere from 7 am to 7 pm. The league has historically started the second Saturday after Labor Day, lasting 7 weeks with no games over MEA weekend.

Thank you, NVC families, for a successful season despite all of pandemic-related chaos! We are happy to report that there were no covid outbreaks and only a few random player/coach quarantines that did not extend to entire teams. Thank you for your diligence and patience as we juggled players and coaches, at times, to give these girls a season.
We hope to field at least two teams this fall, a 12s team and a 14s team. Stay tuned for more details!
In the meantime, there are several camps this summer. Drees and Northern Lights, both in Burnsville, offer camps and small group or private lessons. Northfield Community Ed will offer camps for all skill levels. There are several other organizations that will offer camps as well, such as Lakeville South.
We are seeking new board members for the 2021-2022 season. If you are interested, please contact us at email@example.com.
