Juniors Program

NorCal Juniors

NorCal Juniors teams are designed to give young girls an opportunity to get introduced to club volleyball at a young age, for a lower price, and have a shorter season. These teams are strictly for player development and for that reason, modified rules are used at tournaments and playing time is not decided based on performance. The skill development of each player at a young age, in a low intensity environment, is the ultimate goal of these teams.

NorCal Juniors teams will be for 3rd graders – 6th graders. The season will be from the first week in January through the last tournament in May (currently scheduled for May 13-14).

Our NorCal Juniors teams are “sign up to play,” therefore no tryout is required although we will be building teams based on age and skill level this year. We anticipate having 4-6 teams for the 2023 season.
