CVA is constantly emphasizing cost efficiency when planning travel trips to tournaments so club fees do not include travel (lodging) for players or parents. Players stay with parents when traveling which results in a safer, healthier and more cost-effective experience. In addition, as you will see below, club fees do not cover the cost of uniform purchases, equipment (knee pads, spandex shorts, shoes, etc.) or any additional club merchandise.

CVA’s fees are broken down into monthly payments as outlined below.

This year CVA will be accepting credit card payments only through the SportsEngine website. Checks will no longer be accepted. 

Before a player can attend their first practice, they must have made the initial payment and have paid for their uniforms as well. 


FEES FOR 2023-2024




  1. When you accept an offer to participate, you accept the financial obligations for the entire club fee for that season.  When teams are comprised, monies immediately go directly into uniforms, tournament entries, coach salaries, facility rentals and administrative fees.
  2. Due to our not for profit status and budget requirements, we do not offer refunds.  Refunds will not be given to athletes who choose not to play because of conflicts, team or coaching assignments, or an individual’s amount of playing time.  Prorated refunds will be considered for athletes who suffer season-ending injuries while playing on a Columbia Volleyball Academy team, on a case-by-case basis with a physician’s letter.  Injuries occurred outside of Columbia Volleyball Academy will be determined for a refund by the CVA Board's discretion.
  3. Dues are NON-REFUNDABLE for ANY reason, even in the event that your daughter/son quits, is suspended, dismissed, or injured at any point in the season.
  4. If there is any refund, they will be allowed until March 6, prorated, after dues have been paid in full.  Any refund after March 7 will not be allowed.
