WHAT IS CLUB VOLLEYBALL?
Volleyball clubs can play or sponsor events sanctioned by governing organizations such as USA Volleyball , AAU , or JVA . Players will register at the beginning of each season to one or more of these organizations so they can participate in their events.
The duration of the season typically runs from November through June.
Is Club For Me?
We are looking for young ladies who are passionate about the sport and we can teach them the rest. Our teams are divided by skill level within each age group. We have team options that range from beginner to elite, and from “non travel” to “out-of-state travel”.
Why is club a “must” for college?
Club volleyball is the primary method by which college coaches recruit high school players. Due to the fact that both the NCAA woman’s volleyball season and girl’s high school season occur in the fall, very few NCAA programs recruit during the high school season. Instead, they utilize regional and national events during the club season to see as many athletes as they can. OTVA teams participate in as many of these events as possible.
Making a Team
Each club holds their own tryout. Tryout formats vary from club to club. There is a registration fee for participating in tryouts. Usually 10 – 12 players are selected per team. At OTVA we offer age groups from 10-18. If selected, a player will be offered a spot on the team and required to sign a contract, which commits that player to that club for the season.
This varies by team and the number of events they will be participate in. See the Team Comparison Chart for a breakdown of what will be provided to each athlete as well as cost by team level.
Depending on the team, practice may be 2-3 times per week with tournament 2-3 weekends a month.
Not all clubs are created equal! You are comparing the experience of the coaching staff, facilities, travel schedule, history of winning and ability to provide your child the exposure they need to perhaps play at the collegiate level. OTVA is the #1 club in the state of Florida and strives to be the premier provider of training in the state as well as the nation.
