Teams

AJV Boys will make every attempt to accommodate as many athletes on as many teams as possible to continue growing the sport of boys' volleyball in the great state of Texas. 

Teams are generally composed of between 8-11 athletes grouped in the same age division. Depending on ability, athletes may be selected to play in older age divisions. Our teams practice twice a week in 2 hour practices. Practice start times range from 11:30am-7:30pm on Sundays and from 5:30pm-9:30pm Mondays through Thursdays. Our teams compete in local events, tournaments across Texas, and also national volleyball tournaments against other boys' volleyball clubs.

The Season

Following the completion of the tryouts (Oct 12 and Nov 2), teams will be announced by e-mail the week of Nov 3rd. An organizational meeting will take place in November (TBA) where athletes and parents will fill out paper work, size for uniforms, USAV registration and any other administrative needs. Practice starts Nov 30th and end after the final tournament, the Lone Star Classic on April 18 & 19. Teams will have the option to continue to train through the summer at an additional cost.

Practices (Days and Locations)

Practices start the week of Nov 30th and end after the Lone Star Classic on April 18 & 19. There are breaks in the practice schedule for Christmas and Spring break and a few other school holiday. A complete practice schedule will be provided at the organizational meeting in November.

Teams will practice 2 times a week. One night will be Sunday (Time TBA), the 2nd night will be based on player and gym availiability (likely Tue or Thur). Practices are 2 hours long.  

Location (South facility or CP facility) will be based on the make up of the team. Athletes will be asked during tryouts which facility they are able to get to for practices (South, CP or either) and a best effort will be made to place practices that are most convient. However, we cannot guarentee that teams will practice in the location closest to you.
