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. 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

Open Gyms: AJV will post the open gym dates and tryout dates each August. Open gym provides opportunities for boys to get in the gym, meet the staff and ask question about the program.

Tryouts: Tryouts take place in Oct and Nov. All athletes must register and pay for tryouts on-line and participate in at least one session. 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.  AJV tries to form as many teams as possible as one of our goals is to grow the sport. Tryout results and teams are announced by e-mail. 

Practices: After the announcment of teams, practices start the Sunday after Thanksgiving. Teams practice twice a week, starting in December and lasting through the end of April. Practice locations are based on location request responses in the on-line registration form. Teams will have the option to continue to train through the summer at an additional cost.

Competitions: Teams mostly play in 1 day tournaments which start in Januray and end by May 1. Each team plays in at least 5 tournament in a season. Tournaments will typically start at 8am on a Saturday, play 3 to 5 matches verses different teams over a 6 to 8 hour period. The Lone Star Classic is a 2 day tournament in Dallas with 5 to 7 matches over two days. Tournament schedules are usually developed after the teams are formed as most tournaments do not announce their dates until December. Exact playing schedules of each tournament are posted on-line usually the Wed before. 

End of Season: Teams end their season at the Lone Star Classic (laste April) followed by the AJV Volleyball Banquet in Mid May. Teams will have the option of continuing through the summer at an additional cost.
