13U ~ Players who were born on or after July 1, 2007

TRYOUT REQUIREMENTS

Apple Valley Volleyball (VAA) is a member of USA Volleyball (USAV), who is the national governing body for volleyball.  North Country Region (NCR) is the upper Midwest chapter of USA Volleyball that includes Minnesota, North Dakota, South Dakota, and the Upper Peninsula of Michigan.  As members, it is required that all participants have a current USAV membership for tryouts.  Each membership includes full access to the USAV Academy that provides in-depth online training courses on all aspects of the game.  Volleyball is the only sport that includes all players as part of the officiating crew and USAV insures proper training for those duties.  Learning to observe the rules from this perspective will help give a better understanding of the game and helps everyone become better players.

 

This year, USAV has a Fall Membership that is $15 and is good from 9/1/2020-12/31/2020.  This membership will cover tryouts, officiating certifications, practices, and any tournaments until the end of the year.  All participants that are placed on a team will have to upgrade to the full 2020-2021 membership after 12/31/2020 for additional $35.  The USAV membership fees are not included in the VAA registration.
