Tryouts for the 2024 - 2025 season will be on August 3rd - 4th at the times listed below. With us having 11 boys teams last season (club record!) we are excited to see what this season will bring. If you are interested in trying out but unable to make this tryout, please contact Nick Hunt at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The cost for the Tryout is $50 for early bird until July 22, $70 after July 18, and is non-refundable.
Tryouts are broken out in to 3 parts. All participants are first physically tested (height, reach, approach jump, block jump, shuttle run and basketball throw). Next, athletes are statistically and subjectively evaluated on their individual skills such as hitting, setting, passing, digging and blocking skills. Then, athletes will be evaluated in a live play situation. All participants have multiple opportunities to play in various situations like 6 vs 6 drills, 3 vs 3 and head to head match-ups.
At the end of the tryout, the process for announcing teams will be explained to all participants. AJV will make every effort to create as many teams as possible. Not everyone is guaranteed a spot. Participants accept their spot by signing the player contract and paying the $600 initial payment. The contract and payment are all on line. Parents will need access to their e-mail accounts. Player contracts will be mailed to the parent's e-mail address that you used to set up your AJV account when registering for tryouts.
No experience is required to tryout for AJV boys. We have a range of playing experience levels on all of our teams. AJV is committed to growing boys volleyball in Texas and creating as many opportunities to play as possible.
Teams are generally composed of 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. Each practice is 2 hours in duration. Practice times range from 10am-9pm 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.
Practices start in November or December. All teams from ages 12 - 18s practice twice a week, lasting through the end of April or through the end of July based on tournament schedule. Practice location for the boys teams is Austin Sports Center - Central with the possibility of using Austin Sports Center - Cedar Park. Some teams that end in April will have the option to continue to train through the summer at an additional cost.
Teams mostly play in 2-3 day tournaments which start in December and end by May 1, not including Nationals in the summer (June/July). Each team plays in at least 5 tournaments in a season. Tournaments will typically start on a Saturday (morning or afternoon, depending on the tournament), play 3 to 5 matches verses different teams over a 6 to 8 hour period. Then come back on Sunday and play 2 or 4 more matches. 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 by the Wed before.
End of Season
Some teams are scheduled to play until July ending their season at the USA Volleyball Boys Jr National Championships. Some teams end their season the last week of April. These teams will have the option of continuing through the summer at an additional cost. See tournament schedule for length of season for each team.
