DID YOU MISS JJVA TRAVEL TEAM TRYOUTS? 

July 17 & 18, 2021

By appointment only – Email coachadis@jjva.com

For competitive volleyball players who missed the tryouts last weekend! 

Only few specific spots are still open.


Play with the Best! With over 30 years of excellence under our belt, JJVA welcomes you to become part of the most exciting volleyball family in Northeast Florida.

The JJVA Travel Team Program is designed to train dedicated volleyball athletes in an attempt to expose those athletes to competitive and challenging match environments to further their development and growth in the sport. Our goal within this program is to encourage athletes to pursue and further expose athletes to competitive volleyball at the highest levels of club and collegiate volleyball.  Our measurement of excellence is founded in our teams competing at the top levels both in the state of Florida and Nationally in the most competitive divisions for each team, as well as our long standing commitment to helping athletes pursue volleyball at the collegiate level. 

Training Structure

Our goal is to create no more than four travel teams (Teal, Black, Gold, White) per age group (11U-18U). All travel teams will train on the same evenings based on their age group’s time slot, and the lead coach for each age group will be a JJVA staff coach, responsible for creating training of all four teams. Each of the head coaches from all teams in a given age group will also serve as assistant coaches for the other teams in the age group.

Team Tuition & Tournament Calendar

The cost of each team is different based on the number of out of state tournaments these teams will attend, as well as recruiting services being included or not. We have provided a scale of cost for you listed below. The number on the highest end of the scale reflects the highest amount any one team can pay in that age group, and the lowest number reflects the minimum all based on tournament schedules.

For example: Teal and Black teams will have a tuition costs on the high end of the scale since they will travel out of state more often, while Gold and White teams will have a tuition cost on the lower end of the scale since they will play fewer out of state events, and recruiting separated from their costs.

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. Select which travel team programs they would like to be considered for: Teal, Black, Gold, White. Athletes are welcome to chose as many teams as they wish to be considered for.

2. 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 combining 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 (July 11, 2021)

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 in any of the following travel teams: Teal, Black, Gold, White.

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 Travel Team program will be invited to attend the tryouts for our Club program taking place on November 6, 2021.
