JJVA Club Teams

Club Team Program Details


Club Team Program Philosophy

The JJVA Club Volleyball program is perfect for competitive volleyball players who wish to continue building skills and compete in both one and two-day events in the Jacksonville area. Our club division offers training from our JJVA coaches twice a week in the evenings and teams will enjoy a competitive tournament schedule without the expense and commitment of out-of-town travel.

TRYOUT PROCESS

All athletes will be assigned a number in order to be evaluated by our coaching staff. During the check-in process, athletes will be asked to:

1. Designate a position(s) that they would like to be considered for (ex: Outside Hitter/Defensive Specialist).

Note: Coaches may ask to evaluate players in other positions in order to create or find the best fit possible for each athlete and team.

Day 1 Tryout Format & Team Placement

  • Serve & Serve Reception Training & Evaluations
  • Individual Positional Training & Evaluations
  • 6 vs. 6 Competition Evaluations

During this tryout day, athletes will go through a series of basic skills training, positional training, and 6 vs. 6 wash drill training. Our staff will begin the evaluation process on this day. 

Day 2 Tryout Format & Team Commitment 

EACH PLAYER MUST BE ACCOMPANIED BY A PARENT OR GUARDIAN in order to complete the team commitment process. (See more below) 

  • Combined Positional Training & Evaluations
  • 6 vs. 6 Competition Evaluations

During this tryout day, athletes will start the day continuing with the positional training evaluation from Day 1. Coaches will start having multiple position groups combined in order to further evaluate. For example, Outside Hitters and Setters may work on offense together. Coaches will then begin ranking each athlete by position in an effort to start forming competitive teams for the 6 vs. 6 evaluation. 

Each court will continue the tryout evaluation process by competing in 6 vs. 6 drills. During these drills, coaches may ask athletes to switch between courts at any time as well as play multiple positions. Also during this time, our staff will begin asking specific courts to begin the player commitment process. 

On Day 2 Tryout Date (November 6, 2022)

EACH PLAYER MUST BE ACCOMPANIED BY A PARENT OR GUARDIAN in order to complete the team commitment process. 

At the conclusion of Day 2 Tryouts, each athlete will be selected and offered a roster placement on a JJVA club team.

Once this roster placement has been offered, athletes and parents must complete the commitment process on site. If an athlete decides NOT to accept the roster placement offered, that athlete will be free to end their tryout process and the next highest evaluated athlete in that position will be considered for that specific roster placement. 

Athletes who are NOT selected and offered a roster placement position in the club program will be invited to attend to register for our Team Train and Play league to continue to develop their skills.
