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. 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.

Tryouts: Tryouts take place in Sept. All athletes must register and pay for tryouts on-line. Athletes will be run through physical testing (hight, reach, vert, sprints), skill evaluation and 6 vs 6 competitions. Teams are formed based on the tryout performance and number of participants. This year there will be 2 session. Tryout participants need to attend both session. If you cannot attend one of the sessions, please send AJV an e-mail.
