Fall Traveling Volleyball

Who coaches traveling teams?

We have had coaches from the high school coaching staff, college students, and distinguished alumnae from AVHS. We prefer to hire coaches who have a background in coaching or have extensive experience playing volleyball. Our teams generally have a paid coach. Sometimes that coach can be a parent.

What does our fee pay for?

Your fees pay for registration for the fall league at Northern Lights, gym time for practices, coaching, uniforms, and practice T-shirts. You are responsible for providing your child shoes, knee pads, warm-ups, and gym bags.

Are there tryouts for teams? Can every girl make a team?

There are tryouts, and some girls may not make any team. We would like to include as many girls as possible, but sometimes the numbers do not work out this way. A roster of ten girls per team is considered ideal. The number of teams and how many girls are on a team depend entirely on how many girls try out. The fall league is divided into two age divisions: 12U & 14U. 

How are age groups determined for traveling volleyball?

The player’s age on September 1st determines their age group. For example, girls who turn 12 between Sept. 1, 2017 and Aug. 31, 2018 will be eligible to play in the 12 and under age group for the 2018 season. Girls may “play up” at the discretion of the club.

Are there state or national tournaments for Fall traveling volleyball?

There is no state tournament for VAA fall traveling volleyball.
