The Santa Barbara Volleyball Club is the premiere volleyball club in Santa Barbara. Over the past 30 years we have been coaching and euducating young athletes through the sport of volleyball. As a non-profit organization, the best way to view the club is as a 250 plus family sponsored volleyball co-operative employing highly skilled coaches and Directors who are the best in the area for coaching young athletes to perform at elite levels.
WHY WE ASK
Each year we ask for donations from our families and our community to help cover our expenses. The overall expense of the club, the main contributor is, quite literally, time. For travel teams, the athletes will be practicing or playing approximately 250 hours this season! Facilities, insurance, league fees (a biggie), taxes and uniforms account for over a third of the budget. It may surprise you that coaching and administration consume only another third of the budget and the rest is simply the cost of tournament play. There are no 401ks or health insurance and the board are all volunteers.
This year we are challenged with inflated facilities costs due to the Armory being sold and no longer available for us to use. Our facilities expenses tripled overnight.
WHERE YOUR DONATION GOES
Whereas the costs/dues of the club are consistent for each child in the program, the ability to pay those costs for each of our families is quite different and, therefore, the board strives to make financial aid available for those families for whom the TOTAL cost is out of reach.
We are asking those families for whom the cost is not a burden to please donate to the club’s financial aid program. The point about which we are most confident is the value of your child’s experience FAR exceeds the costs.
