What is Club Volleyball
Club volleyball is the organized formation of non-scholastic volleyball teams for the purposes of practice and competition. Almost all club volleyball programs associate with one or more governing organizations (USA Volleyball, AAU, JVA, Etc) in order to sanction their competitions.
Club volleyball programs vary in their size and purpose. Some clubs serve a very small niche (e.g. low commitment/developmental, high commitment/elitist, etc). Others provide a wide array of opportunities.
At McHenry County Juniors, we want our athletes to not only have the opportunity for tremendous growth in the sport of volleyball, but we also want them to learn the aspects of being on a competitive team. We have incredible coaches and we pride ourselves on running efficient and energetic practices. The more touches on the ball the better!
Club volleyball, in our area, holds tryouts in October/November. Our 10 – 14s tryout will be held on October 2nd at the Volo Sportsplex. Our teams will compete until the end of March.
Unlike some other sports (e.g. football), club volleyball is the primary avenue for student-athletes to gain exposure to college scouts. Due to the fact that both the NCAA woman’s volleyball season and girl’s high school season are in the fall, very few NCAA programs recruit during the high school season. Accordingly, almost all evaluation and recruiting opportunities occur during the club volleyball season.
